I am a bay area graduate (UC Berkeley) who has loved the learning process all my life. I have used my math and science skills throughout my engineering career, and enjoy engaging others in the learning process. Seeing a student smile as they begin to understand a difficult topic is very rewarding.

I specialize in tutoring chemistry, math, and physics to help students achieve success in school, and on the various standardized tests. My goal is not only to help the student learn, but create an interest in the subject as well, as I have found that interest and curiosity are the best motivators. I try to challenge students to do their best, without overwhelming them.

I expect the best from myself, and I will not charge for any lesson with which the student, or parent is not completely satisfied.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I am currently working with three students who have moderate/severe autism. These students point to letters/symbols on a board to communicate with a communication partner. I am also working with one student to become the communication partner, currently using air prompts in combination with the communication board.

Great First Session

We were able to cover a good amount of material and we covered it in depth. Very easy to understand and comprehend. After I left, I thought to myself, "man, if i had to go through those sections myself and try to teach myself the nomenclature, I would've been doing it for hours, I probably would've been making a lot of mistakes, and I certainly would be confused about a lot of the rules." Clarke took what would take me many hours and something that I would've been confused by and compressed it into 2 hours worth of material in a very simple, straight forward, and easy to understand method.

Bobby, 16 lessons with Clark

Knowledgeable and patient

Clark reviewed a few concepts to ensure understanding and explained some new concepts. He was very articulate, patient and was able to answer and help me understand very well.

Kavitha, 7 lessons with Clark

Makes it clear- patient and understands subject matter!

Clark is a very good teacher - who takes the time to go step by step and review missing links in the area of need. I have really moved in the knowledge of math-as I am prepping for a test.

Kristina, 9 lessons with Clark

Explains well

We went through the textbook we'll be using and charted a small lesson plan going forward. Has many good examples and explanations. I'll be working with him more methodically for a while

Evan, 18 lessons with Clark

Knowleadgable and patient tutor

Clark is very knowledgeable and is very good at probing for understanding. He breaks down problems into manageable concepts to make sure the fundamentals are clear.

Gloria, 16 lessons with Clark

Knowlageable and patient tutor

This review is based on my first class. I found Mr. Clark very helpful and straight to the point. I was able to understand what he taught and the way he worded things was very easy for me to grasp.

Shubhangi, 61 lessons with Clark

Knowledgeable, friendly, patient and punctual.

Clark went over some basic math principle; vocabulary, percentages, fractions, and the number line . He was able to teach me some really great mathematical strategies for figuring out percentages . I would highly recommend Clark .

Forrest, 3 lessons with Clark

Very patient, and great at explaining every step

Clark was very easy to understand, and was very patient! He was fantastic at explaining every step, and breaking down the concepts of redox balancing and stoichometry. Thank you for your help Clark!
