Hi, my name is Caius,
I graduated from Berkeley two and a half years ago and have been working as a math tutor in the East Bay since. I currently offer instruction for first and second year Calculus courses, namely Calculus AB and Calculus BC in high school, and equivalent college courses. I live in North Oakland and I'm most interested in working with students at UC Berkeley taking Math1A, Math1B, or Math16A; students at Berkeley City College taking Math3A or Math3B; and high school students at Berkeley High enrolled in Calculus AB or Calculus BC. I'm of course also happy to work with anyone else provided we are able to meet somewhere near North Oakland or downtown Berkeley.
I focus on tutoring only Calculus knowing that my students will benefit from my deep understanding and real passion for this subject. When you hire me as a tutor, you know you are getting a tutor who has a deep understanding of the subject and has recently worked with the topics you need explained.
A little about me: I've loved math since I was a very young kid, inspired by my mother. I participated in Math Olympiads on the national level in Romania, where I grew up. In high school, by which time I was already living in California, I scored a perfect math SAT score, 5s on both AP Calculus tests, and received an award as math student of the year from my Calculus teacher. During my university years, I continued to take math courses, such as Multi-variable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, Mathematical Logic, etc.
Some reviews from previous students:
"His patience and understanding helps you retain information and do well on your exams. After struggling with my class I started meeting with Caius regularly. Once he explained it to me my grade and my understanding of math improved. I couldn't have succeeded without him!" - Isaac, student at Berkeley City College.
"Caius really stepped in for me when I was struggling with a new calculus teacher who had no idea what the course content was herself. He helped explain concepts to me that I had repetitively struggled with before looking for help and is a very patient and extremely intelligent tutor. I was a senior at Berkeley High taking AP Calc last year, and with the help of Caius, I'm now at UC Santa Cruz and have a very strong calculus base. Along with some college credit from the AP course. I highly recommend him as a tutor."
- Sami, student at Berkeley High School
"Caius was the best math tutor I ever had! He's really patient and explains everything really clearly and well."
- Hannah, student at Berkeley City College.
