Joel Calderon- Tutoring Coordinator 

Tutoring Mathematics, English, Chemistry, Physics

I am a UC Berkeley alum, class of 2020. In college, I studied Astrophysics and Music, and I am also a graduate of East Bay Center's Young Artist Diploma Program. After graduating high school, I worked as an intern at the Center, and now I am an academic support counselor. I offer tutoring in the subjects of Mathematics, English, Chemistry, and Physics. I am also a general college prep counselor, and can help with college applications, essay writing, and general advice about pursuing higher education. I am very much a visual learner, so maybe it makes sense that Geometry is one of my favorite academic subjects. I look forward to working with you!

Mitch Goldman- Tutoring Mathematics

I have been in the classroom since I was 5 years old - first as a student, then as a teacher, advisor, and coach. Although I started out teaching General Science and Physics in New York City, I spent most of my years teaching Mathematics at all levels:elementary school through community college, basic math through advanced calculus and statistics. 

I also launched two athletic programs, at the high school where I taught in New York, as well as the school in California where I taught for almost 29 years, coaching basketball and baseball and assisting with the soccer programs. 

I have given myself to a life of education, both teaching and learning, and look forward to sharing the experience with you. 

Jorge Luis García- Tutoring English, Math and Spanish

Hello! My name is Jorge Luis Garcia, (I also go by Jorge) I am a student at San Francisco State University currently taking my long awaited final semester. I am a Cinema major with an emphasis in Screenwriting, though I have had a lot of opportunities working on different productions learning the several technical aspects that it takes to create a movie. For the last seven years I’ve found myself working with various educational institutions including the East Bay Center, Cooking 'Round the World, and Saint Jerome Catholic School. I am also a Making Waves Education Program alumni where I dedicated seven years to extracurricular education in pursuit of higher education. My hope is to be able to help you with whatever subject you may have difficulty in by carefully approaching it together. I look forward to working with you!
