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. 

Aby Armendaris- Tutoring Math, Science, Writing, History, College and Career Prep

Hello! My name is Abigail “Aby” Armendaris, nice to meet you!  I am a Cal State East Bay Alumna from the Class of 2020 where I obtained a B.A. in Theater Arts with a Technology and Design concentration. I am an alumna of the East Bay Center’s Diploma Program, and a technician in their Production Department. I have worked in the classroom for 9+ years! For 6 years, I taught in dance, and in college/career classes at the East Bay Center, and I've worked as an Instructional Aide at Cal Prep, a 6-12 in Richmond, CA, for the other 3+ years. I love to work on Math problems, Science questions, English essays, History test, College and Career help and everything in between. I am always open to learning something new, so if it's not listed, don’t be afraid to ask about it! I look forward to working with you!
