Andreas has been very helpful in terms of teaching me how to think like a mathematician when approaching my schoolwork. He not only teaches you what you need to know to succeed on your exams, but he also will give you a deeper understanding of what you're doing. He's also extremely knowledgeable in many fields relating to math and computer science. After an hour with Andreas, I feel like a smarter person.

Andreas was able to explain concepts to me in a way that I could understand and was very helpful with problem solving.

Andreas was helpful with discussing the foundations of linear programming and applying it to the homework assignment. I now have a better understanding of the process needed to tackle the assignment.

Andreas is Patient and personable. He's a great tutor who will take his time to explain, even re-explain concepts.

This was a session for my daughter. She needed help with Computer Science programming prep for exam. Andreas is really smart/knows everything - per my daughter, and they covered a lot. Andreas also called me before and after appt and spent a a good amount of time on phone offering guidance, giving feedback, and answering questions. I also appreciated that he made great efforts to be prepared for the session by requesting as much material as we could provide so that he would know exactly where to jump in. In doing so, he wasted no time. I expect we will be contacting him again. No reservations. Highly recommended and would call him in a heartbeat. He is also very responsive, and fit us in very quickly.

Andreas came through in the midst of midterms and finals. He is professional, responsive, prepared, thorough, VERY knowledgable, kind and dedicated. A great partner in education!

GREAT! Easy to work with and understand. Very accommodating. We worked on statistics but he can do all math. Awesome guy.

Andreas has been tutoring my son in precalculus for the past two months. He is an excellent tutor, explaining the material very clearly and taking time to make sure that my son really understands. He is prompt and reliable and has stayed extra on two occasions when my son needed a little more help. He was able to be both honest and kind in talking with my son about the difficulties he was having. As a result of the tutoring, my son has gone from an F in the class, with his teacher telling me he seemed lost and had no understanding of the material, to getting an A on his last two quizzes and test. He feels so much more confident in the class that he now wants to try on his own next semester. I recommend Andreas very highly!

Andreas is an excellent Algebra 1 tutor. My 8th grade son was lost in Algebra and Andreas makes it very clear and simple for him. We will continue with Andreas as long as we need to. He makes Algebra fun and my son really enjoys working with him!

Andreas is a very knowledgeable teacher. He really makes helping the student a priority. Thank you!

Andreas is extremely knowledgeable and prepared for what he does. He is able to explain things quickly in the most concise manner so as to learn and deeply understand what you really need to know. He is patient and modifies how he teaches based on what you need assistance with and how you best learn and study. With his help, I was able to go from being worried about failing a challenging calculus course to getting an A on my final.

Andreas helped me with a course that was very broad in nature - everything from probability to statistics to economics and finance. There were some niche concepts that were outside of his posted area of expertise, but he seems to love any most type of math and took it upon himself to become enough of an expert to help me get a A- in a very tough class at a top-ranked graduate school! Not only is he very bright, but he's great at explaining complex concepts, and has a good tutoring style (asking questions to make sure you're following along). I highly recommend Andreas!

Andreas is an outstanding tutor. He is very intuitive about the needs of the student. He is patient, encouraging, and also understanding of the student's strengths and weaknesses!

Andreas is patient and willing to work with me at whatever statistical aptitude level I may be in a particular area. He encourages me to continue to work to improve my statistics knowledge even when the pace of my progress is not as rapid as I think it should be.

He has full in-depth knowledge of math at the precalculus and calculus levels. He is patient and makes math seem easy, amazingly enough.

Andreas is a master of the material, very personable and knows how to teach. My kids wanted no one else after several sessions with Andreas. He's easy to reach, punctual. We have used him for Pre-Calculus tutoring and SAT-Math review.

When my daughter (a senior in high school) started tutoring with Andreas, she had a D in Calculus, and was regularly getting dismal grades on quizzes and tests. It was a very low D. Since Andreas started tutoring her, the grades have really turned around. She now is confident about the material and getting high B's and even A's on her tests. In fact - for the first time ever she received an A on a final in math. Andreas is surely a great tutor and worth the investment of time and money.

Update - after only a few short months of regular tutoring, my daughter now has a solid A in Calculus. From a low D to a solid A is quite an achievement - and it can be directly attributed to her tutor Andreas.

Andreas is a very thorough and patient tutor. After tutoring with Andreas, my test scores went up by two whole letter grades in college-level Linear Algebra, which led to an overall B grade in the class. Andreas is excellent and I highly recommend his services.

He knows his Math and it is really bright. He was able to accommodate us and was flexible about the time. He is great.

Andreas did a fantastic job as my tutor for this class, and was patient and thorough in his explanations. This was a class that I felt very uncertain of, and his help gave me a much needed confidence boost for my final. He is very professional, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help in understanding advanced mathematical concepts. Thanks Andreas!

Andreas was able to help me with a wide range of advanced topics including, Stochastical Calculus, Ito's Lemma, Kolmogorov Equations, Martingales and Brownian Motion. I have a limited academic background in mathematics having had only one semester of undergraduate calculus. Andreas was able to help me understand these topics bearing in mind that I have not had a lot of formal exposure to the fundamental topics on which these more advanced subjects are based. On more than one occasion I had to be reminded of how the Product Rule or Chain Rule worked before we could move on to solving an equation but Andreas gave me a quick reminder of how the rule works and why it was being applied in that situation and we were able to move on to the more advanced topics.

In addition, Andreas is friendly, always on time, and patient. I highly recommend Andreas as a tutor.

Andreas is a fabulous tutor. He has assisted our 8th grade child in knowledge, understanding the concepts, and our child's grade has risen to an "A" from "C". He is very patient and effective tutor, and builds confidence in his student.

Andreas has been an excellent tutor for my son. He is very patient and allows my son to understand even the most toughest items of probabilities and statistics. I recommend him for future tutoring. Thanks.

My niece is a tenth grade high school student who is taking a very advanced calculus BC class. Although she was getting passing grades, she really did not understand all the concepts and was feeling very discouraged. During her recent school break, Andreas worked with her for 8 days straight, 2-3 hrs/per day reviewing concepts she had missed, and then working ahead to prepare her for the rest of the class. Essentially, they worked on most of the class material. Andreas was very good at figuring out what she needed to learn, and very patient in explaining complicated concepts even when she was tired. Before beginning the sessions, Andreas asked which textbook she was using, and had requested that she email tests etc so he could arrive prepared to help her. He was very flexible in arranging his schedule, and always arrived promptly. My niece is now feeling much more confident in her ability to master this class.

I have worked with Andreas on two classes to complete my MBA and he is fantastic!!!

Courtesy, Hardworking, Very easy to contact by phone or email, arrives on time and makes himself available for if you need extra time or more tutoring sections if necessary.

Andreas is very easy to work with and take special care to explain complex concepts in a way that is easy to digest.

I have enjoyed working with Andreas and would definitely work with him again.

I am in a tough class and thought I would not get through it. However, Andreas has given me hope, as he is knowledgeable, responsive and provides quality tutoring service.

Andreas was a huge help to me in preparing for my GRE. We met several times and his combination of patience and humor helped to keep me on track despite my admittedly deep seated math phobia. I hadn't taken a math class in over 10 years and he was able to refresh my memory of important concepts and equations. He even lent me a GRE prep book to use in conjunction with the one I had purchased. With his assistance I was able to develop a successful test day strategy and my performance on the test was better than I thought was possible (and much better than my timed pretests). I'm confident his tutelage gained me the score I need for acceptance to UC Berkeley. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Andreas is both patient and knowledgeable -- he helps our son make sense of complicated material with strategies that make sense. Highly recommended for advanced math students needing additional support.

Andreas is, as the title delineates, very very talented. He is also great at explaining things and patient when it comes to repeating them. I requested Andreas's assistance with Math 1B (Calc 2) at UC Berkeley. Andreas has a mastery of the techniques needed to achieve high marks in this class, and breaks them down to a simple science while teaching them to his pupils. I would advise anyone who is not confident in their math skills, at whatever level, to meet with Andreas. He has made me confident in my ability to do math!

Andreas was an excellent tutor for our son in Calculus this year at Stanford. He would never have done as well as he did without the talents and effort of Andreas. If you want the best, Andreas is your man!

Andreas was more than willing to help and he not only answered my questions but clued me in on other connections and hints between problems. He helped me to thoroughly understand concepts and catch up in Precalculus. I would definitely recommend his tutoring services to anyone seeking a patient and concise math tutor.

Andreas is a very efficient and knowledgeable tutor, I skipped most of the classes of calculus 2 and I asked him to teach me all the knowledge I missed in less than one week before final. And he helped me picked up almost everything in 3 meetings. I passed the class because I got a good grade on the final. Overall Andreas is a great tutor.

I worked with Andreas to prepare for an upcoming exam. He throughly understand all of the concepts and was able to explain them well. If you need some extra help with these subjects, I would highly recommend working with Andreas. You will not be disappointed!

Andreas has been tutoring my son in Pre-Calculus and is a an excellent, well informed and patient tutor. My son has Attention Deficits and Andreas has been great at engaging him and keeping him focused for over 2 hours at a time on difficult assignments and test preparations. Would highly recommend Andreas M

I found Andreas by accident and am glad I did. My son needed "emergency" remedial assistance to get through Trig/PreCalc. Andreas made himself available immediately, is flexible in his location to meet, is flexible with his time. Most importantly he has a demeanor with knowledge that helps to remove the normal anxiety associated with the subject. My son finds him extraordinarily patient, willing to explore and explain concepts, and enjoys his time with him. While all is certainly not perfect "yet", Andreas has helped my son to make great strides and catchup in his class. I highly recommend Andreas to anyone desiring Math based assistance.

Andreas is a thorough and patient algebra tutor for my high school son who doesn't like math. He explains well and teaches concepts and walks you through problems step by step. He is very reliable and tries to work around your schedule.

Elementary (K-6th), Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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 1 is the first math class that introduces equations with variables and how to determine solutions for equations with first one and later with two variables. In Algebra 1 we also study graphical methods in order to visualize functions as straight lines or parabolas. Further we learn about factorization and the solutions of quadratic equations. Seeing many advanced students who struggle with algebra 1 concepts makes me feel good about my algebra 1 students because I help them to learn it properly from the beginning. It helps for many upcoming years.

"Great Tutor"

- Margaret P. Oakland, CA

Andreas is a fabulous tutor. He has assisted our 8th grade child in knowledge, understanding the concepts, and our child's grade has risen to an "A" from "C". He is a very patient and effective tutor, and builds confidence in his student.

Algebra 2 introduces independent and dependent variables and how their solution can be determined by for linear relationships for two or three variables. Algebra 2 also gives an overview of more complex mathematical functions like basic trigonometric functions, power functions, logarithms, and exponential functions. I tutor Algebra 2 almost daily and based on my tutoring experience in more advanced topics I know very well which areas of Algebra 2 are important in further math classes.

I worked for several years as a Software Engineer at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) using C/C++ for projects using high volume databases for distributed storage systems.

Calculus is my most tutored subject. I tutor high school, college, and university students on a daily basis in AP Calculus classes and in single and multivariable calculus courses at colleges and universities. I also teach calculus to individuals outside of any class. I supervised small groups with aspiring math teachers learning calculus and I taught for several years my own university courses that built heavily on calculus. More than one third of my tutored hours covers calculus.

Andreas was an excellent tutor for our son in Calculus this year at Stanford. He would never have done as well as he did without the talents and effort of Andreas. If you want the best, Andreas is your man!

I tutor any level of math including the math portion of the CBEST test which I took myself successfully. I also help with test strategies to master this part specifically for candidates who haven't studied math for some time. I don't tutor the language parts.

I have been working in computer science related fields in research (Academia & labs) and industry. My PhD thesis is in numerical models for high performance computers. I also worked for several years for a company modeling hazards based on data driven computational models.

I worked more than 10 years in research using different forms of differential equations covering stiff ODEs and multidimensional equations in Computational Fluid Dynamics applications. I tutor on a regular basis university students in calculus and differential equations.

I have a B.Sc. in Economics/Operations Research and I studied optimization, graph theory and applied Operations Research methodology to research and modeling.

My Finite Math knowledge is based on studying Operations Research as part of my Economics degree. My following math studies helped me to understand Finite Math on a more rigorous level. I regularly tutor Finite Math topics as part of other classes like Discrete Math, Linear Algebra, and Probability.

I used Fortran for many years in high performance computing for climate research models and non linear finite element systems.

I tutor geometry almost daily to multiple students attending regular and honors classes at private and public schools in the East Bay.

I help at all levels of math including the test preparation for the quantitative part of the GRE. I had several GRE students and they all exceeded their initial expectations in the math portion.

Linear Algebra investigates the linear relationship between multiple variables. On one side it is for many students a first encounter with mathematical abstraction and on the other side it is a topic that occurs in many scientific applications like in numerical or economical models. At different universities I taught my own courses that built on linear algebra. I also taught groups with aspiring teachers in linear algebra.

"Great Tutor"

- Elizabeth from Moraga, CA

Andreas is a very thorough and patient tutor. After tutoring with Andreas, my test scores went up by two whole letter grades in college-level Linear Algebra, which led to an overall B grade in the class. Andreas is excellent and I highly recommend his services.

I learned formal logic as part of my mathematical education and I additionally studied the use of logic as part of set theory and computer science. Logic supports the understanding of basics and limitations of theories like math, sciences, and philosophy.

Precalculus is the gate to calculus and provides a comprehensive view of the behavior of polynomials, rational functions, and trigonometric functions. I tutor high school, college, and university students on an almost daily basis in Precalculus. I emphasize the understanding because it will not only help in getting better grades but also serves structural learning.

"Excellent Tutor"

- Alexandra K. San Francisco, CA

Andreas was more than willing to help and he not only answered my questions but clued me in on other connections and hints between problems. He helped me to thoroughly understand concepts and catch up in Precalculus. I would definitely recommend his tutoring services to anyone seeking a patient and concise math tutor.

I worked for many years professionally with statistics and next to precalculus and calculus it is my most tutored topic. Statistics doesn't require advanced math classes but it requires a good understanding how to translate word problems into a mathematical form and vice versa. Most classes cover descriptive and inferential statistics using extensively the normal distribution, which also plays with the Student t-distribution a key role in hypothesis testing. I tutor statistics multiple times a week.

"Excellent tutor."

- Ricardo from San Mateo, CA

Andreas has been an excellent tutor for my son. He is very patient and allows my son to understand even the toughest items of probabilities and statistics. I recommend him for future tutoring. Thanks.
