About Caius

Hi, my name is Caius,

I graduated from UC Berkeley six ago and have been working as a math tutor in the SF Bay, Boulder, CO & Orange Co. on and off. Currently I am in Marin County! I offer instruction in all Calculus courses (I-III) to both college and high school students.

A little about me: I've loved math since I was a very young kid, taught and inspired by my mom. 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, 5's on both AP Calculus tests, and received an award as math student of the year from my Calculus teacher. During college, I studied conservation and natural history with an emphasis in mathematics, and my math coursework included: Multi-variable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, Mathematical Logic, Differential Equations.

A review from a previous student:

"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."

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 2

If you are taking Algebra II chances are you are either taking a college course as a prerequisite for an altogether different major, and mathematics is not your focus, or you (perhaps your daughter/son) are taking a regular high school class.

A majority of the students I've had experience working with over the years have been college students outside a mathematics major and often without too strong of an interest in mathematics but needing to take an algebra, algebra II, or precalculus course as part of their required framework.

I also have extensive experience working with high school students in various grades who are enrolled in the various high school classes such as geometry, algebra II, precalculus, or Calculus AB/BC.

Calculus

I find Calculus to be the most interesting and fun subject for me to teach; I have extensive experience with Calculus I-III (single variable, multivariable, vector calculus, etc.)
Here are some reviews from previous students:

"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."

"[Caius's] 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, Berkeley City College (now at University of California, Santa Barbara)

Linear Algebra

In college I took two classes on linear algebra, which turned out to be one of my favorite topics in mathematics. I have tutored students in this subject before, in the type of class for which linear algebra is paired up with differential equations, as well as in pure linear algebra introductory courses intended for math majors. Let me know if all those vector and matrix operations are starting to crash down over your head, I'd be happy to help you sort it out.

Precalculus

Precalculus is a common course at both the high school and college level. This has been one of the most common subjects that I have tutored; for many students both in high school and college, precalculus will be the highest-level math class they take if they don't choose to / are required to go on to calculus. I have tutored a number of students who wish to transfer from community colleges to a university and need to do well in this course in order to transfer into a particular major; here is a review from one particular student at BCC (Berkeley Community College):

"Caius's 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!"

Trigonometry

If you are taking Algebra II/Trigonometry chances are you are either taking a college course as a prerequisite for an altogether different major, and mathematics is not your focus, or you (perhaps your daughter/son) are taking a regular high school class.

A majority of the students I've had experience working with over the years have been college students outside a mathematics major and often without too strong of an interest in mathematics but needing to take an algebra, algebra II, or precalculus course as part of their required framework.

Very helpful tutor

Caius helped me to prep for my calculus final, and was very helpful with explanations, managing our time, and working at my speed. I don't think I would have done nearly as well on the final without Caius' help.
