Teal Arbor Stories
Mentoring: This service is for any individual who wants to receive supportive guidance working one-on-one with an experienced writer. Individual mentoring is a way for somebody to engage more deeply with her own creative potential, gaining appreciation of her inner nature. Therefore, we might focus on journaling techniques or creative expression as means of deepening one's writing. Learning how to let one's writing emerge from the core self is a goal of mentoring. Over all, mentoring supports the processes of the writer as well as the process of writing.
Editing: Traditional editing services are available. The level of editing (light, moderate, or heavy) depends upon the needs of the writer in tandem with a professional assessment of the document's readiness.
Tutoring: For those who want to improve general writing skills, to apply critical thinking in writing, and to hone the ability to proofread and edit one's own work, tutoring is recommended. Whether one considers himself a novice writer or a professional, I will be a guide through every step: from idea generation to first drafts, editing, revisions, final drafts and polishing. Tutoring is different from mentoring in that it is more solely focused on the writing outcome.
Workshops: TEALarbor stories offers half and full day workshops upon request. Small groups who want to participate in a workshop together can arrange a special time and location with the facilitator. Choose from the following:
Writing for Insight workshops focus on process writing. Individuals in the group explore their inner landscape through directed writing activities, coming to understand themselves in novel, richer ways.
Writing as Rite workshops use simple rituals, symbols and metaphors as the foundation for writing. Participants spend time out in nature and with creative materials doing guided writing practices.
Writing for Outcome is very focused written work for a group that wants to explore together a specific type of writing such as memoir, a particular kind of journaling, travelogues, research or interview documentation, etc.

Kelly Tutoring by Liz Kelly and Allie Kelly
We are two private tutors in our later 20's who specialize in K-8 grade tutoring. Although we typically work with students in K-8, we are also able to help high school students in English and History, Study Skills, Organization and Paper Editing. We both graduated with AA's and bachelor degrees and are now pursuing masters' degrees and teaching credentials in Education. We both currently work for the Davis School District in Special Education but have spent hours in every grade level classroom. We work with children that have anything from lack of study skills and organizational problems to students with learning disabilities like ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia. We typically work after school at the Yolo County Library in Davis. Both sisters grew up in Davis and went all the way from kindergarten to high school graduation so she understands the pressure put under Davis kids at any age. We offer a free consultation meeting with both the parents and the child to be tutored before tutoring even starts so you can decide if we are the right fit for you! We charge $25 for one session a week. Each session is 55 minutes and we use a system of communication notebooks between parents and tutor, prize reinforcement and constant and non judgmental communication between tutor and the student. We don't have a lot of spaces left so please contact us quickly as tutoring times tend to fill up! We start most of our sessions (which may already be taken, so ask for a particular time(s) available from 2:30 -6:00 at the Davis Public Library on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays (We start at 1:30) and Thursdays (Fridays/weekends/and evenings may also be available; just ask!). For more information, please e-mail Liz at ELKelly23@gmail.com and leave your phone number so we can call you back! We look forward to meeting you!
*Summer Tutoring is available at all hours! Please e-mail ELKelly23@gmail.com for more information! We ARE filling up fast so contact us! We do a free assessment and discussion with both parents and the child needed to be tutored so we can figure out the best curriculum and the best way to "fit" your child in. We are able to travel to your home or meet at the Davis Public Library*

Math Tutors help in a variety of subjects and grade levels. You can find some through the UCD Math Department list at http://www.math.ucdavis.edu/courses/learning/tutors.
I have over 14 years of math teaching experience, including 5 years at the high school level. For the last 9 years, I have worked at the Student Academic Success Center at UC Davis tutoring students in Algebra, Trig., Pre-Calc (Math 12) and Calculus (16ABC and 21ABCD). If you are a UCD student, I am very familiar with curriculum in these courses, and I also know the styles of many of the professors who teach them. I can help you maximize not only your understanding of the material, but also your grade!
If you are a Davis High or Middle School student, you probably already realize that the math curriculum in Davis schools moves fast and is very challenging. I taught 5 years of high school math in a very similar school district, so I can quickly recognize the important concepts that you should know, and I can explain them clearly. I have had great success tutoring DHS students!

Christopher Bumgardner, PhD
Christopher received a PhD in mathematics from UC Davis in March of 2011. During his time as a graduate student, he was an instructor for a few math classes (21D, 22B, 16B) and a teaching assistant for numerous lower and upper division classes (all calculus upper and lower division, real and complex analysis, advanced algebra including linear algebra, topology, introduction to higher math, and more). Christopher also has been a private tutor for high school and college students since January of 2009. He has had a lot of success with helping students with anything from just getting through a math test to pinpointing weak areas in a student's mathematical knowledge. Christopher puts a very conscious focus on finding learning styles of a student and then adapting his teaching style to accommodate. A lot of the time, Christopher finds he ends up helping students learn math by helping relieve math anxiety, and then the student's mathematical abilities, whether past knowledge or present understanding of concepts, can thrive.
You can contact Christopher to set an appointment for a tutoring session by email (preferred): cjbumgardner(at)gmail(dot)com; or by phone: 530-848-0245.
I would just like to clearly state that I, Mitchal Dichter, wrote this entry in the wiki.
I went to UCD for undergrad for a BS in applied math and a BS in compter science and then was in the applied math grad program at UCD, but pretty quickly realized that it was not as applied as I thought. I'm currently in limbo between going into a computer science grad program and leaving the applied math grad program. I really like tutoring. It's like TAing without the grading, and I learn the material better too.
The first hour is free. This is to evaluate me as a tutor and make sure that the way I am able to teach you is compatible with the way you learn. I might also want to meet for a half hour, which is also free, before the first session to take a look at the material to make sure I can do it.
I prefer to tutor undergraduate and graduate students. The best way to contact me is by emailing me with some information about the course, your phone number, and when I should call you. You can also call me, but my phone is not the example of reliability.
Rate: $20/hr; First session is free

High School via community college: MAT 21ABCD
Undergrad: MAT 22B, 25, 67, 108, 118A, 119AB, 125AB, 128ABC, 129, 135AB, 141, 145, 148, 150AB, 167, 185A
Grad: MAT 201A, 207A, 228A
Math courses I would like to tutor:
MAT 25, 67, 108, 118A, 119A, 125AB, 128ABC, 129, 135A, 148, 167, 185A
Non-math courses that I would like to tutor:
There are a lot of graduate level courses not in the math department that use a lot of math (a bunch in engineering, biological modeling, chemistry, geology, etc.) and the prerequisites are the bare minimum. I really like to tutor these classes because they're typically super applied and have a lot of programming.
Other sources for lower division math courses
You can contact me for tutoring other lower division math courses (MAT16ABC, MAT17ABC, MAT21ABCD, MAT22AB) but there are other free services for these classes. Three I know of are the Calculus Room, Math Cafe (all math courses), and the Learning Skills Center. (Please send me an email if you know of any others.)
Fall 2013, Winter 2014, Spring 2014, Summer 2014, . . .
I tutored for about 45 hours in high school in math related subjects.
I was a TA for the math department for MAT21D in Fall 2012 and MAT21B in Winter 2013.
I also like tutoring non-math grad students taking classes with extensive use of mathematics.
Please send me an email if interested.
I graduated from MIT in 2009 with dual degrees in physics and economics and am currently applying to medical school. I'm willing to tutor middle school, high school, or undergraduate students. I have two years tutoring experience in math, chemistry, and physics, both at a high school and college level. I can teach any high school level math or science class, as well as many college level physical science and math classes. I also do prep work for the SAT and the MCAT. My rate is $30/hour. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Math is hard. There is no question about it. But I want to help reduce any frustrations you have. I'm a applied math PhD student at UC Davis. I hold a pure math BS degree and a minor in computer science degree from UC Davis also, so I have taken the same math classes you are in!
