OUR Team

East Bay Tutoring's team is comprised of highly-trained graduates, post-doctoral fellows, Master’s, Ph.D.’s and exceptionally talented undergraduate students in biology, chemistry, math, physics, and engineering. Our tutors have studied: astrophysics, physics, chemical engineering, chemistry, electrical engineering, computer science, environmental studies, policy & management, mathematics, neuroscience, and molecular cell biology.

When it comes to tutoring, personality and character are equally important to expertise, so we only hire tutors with great personalities: friendly, enthusiastic, and fun. Our tutors are great role models for younger students. Joe recruits, interviews, and trains every member of East Bay Tutoring’s team. He hires tutors as employees instead of independent contractors to ensure higher quality, reliability, and retention of great tutors.
