should be a team effort
Put us in your starting lineup
Looking for help with an existing class, an upcoming standardized test, or trying to get a head start on the next school year? Welcome, you've come to the right place. We specialize in tutoring high school and undergraduate-level mathematics, computer science, and engineering topics in a 1-on-1 setting. The services we offer are straightforward and the pricing is simple--pay as you go, with sessions starting at $75 per hour. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, we are happy to offer you in-person tutoring as well. Reach out to us below and let's get started!
Spencer Kent is an engineer and neuroscientist who is passionate about eigenvectors, random variables, and minimalist funk music. He has a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California, Berkeley, where his research has focused on mathematical models of signal processing in the brain. The only thing he loves more than teaching is watching his students develop the confidence to teach the same material to others. This virtuous cycle is the surest way to master any subject, and one of the great joys of building a tutoring relationship. He has taught various topics in the core electrical engineering and computer science curriculum, including signal processing, computer engineering, basic electronic circuits, and linear algebra. He knows that every student is unique, and that finding the style of instruction that generates those "Aha!" moments is half the fun.
Carson Kent, Spencer's twin brother, is a computational mathematician and graduating Ph.D. student at Stanford University. His research specializes in computing efficient solutions to problems that arise in machine learning and artificial intelligence. More generally, however, Carson is enamored with all levels of mathematics and computer science. He is well-suited to provide instruction in the entire spectrum of subjects encompassing mathematical and computational curricula, from the high-school level to the advanced undergraduate level. Carson has found that the key to nurturing long-term success in these subjects is a strong emphasis on intuition and the problem-solving process. These two principles form the bedrock of his instruction and Carson's ultimate goal is not just to cultivate learning, but to cultivate future learning.
