Charlie is a Bay Area native who discovered their passion for STEM at an early age. They enjoy puzzles and increasing their mathematical knowledge, but most of all they enjoy sharing their knowledge with others through teaching. Charlie has an AS in mathematics as well as physics from Foothill College, and is currently pursuing a BA in Mathematics for Teaching at San Francisco State University.
When not practicing math and physics, Charlie likes to listen to and play music. Their favorite instrument is the ukulele, but they are also learning to play the guitar, mandolin, and drums.
"I think the biggest value they get is the 1-1 time, and where they can focus on the strength and weakness of both children."

Tiffany was born in Daly City and then moved to San Bruno at the age of ten. She spent many years playing sports, participating in school plays and learning all there is to know about baking the perfect chocolate chip cookies. When she was in high school, she found herself volunteering at a Spanish Immersion Preschool in which her passion for teaching had begun. From there, she worked in many classroom and after-school environments, focusing primarily on early elementary and middle school ages.
In her free time, Tiffany loves going shopping, hanging around the house, and watching Gilmore Girls reruns on Netflix. She is currently in the process of continuing her education and hopes to receive a masters degree in education from the University of San Francisco.

Gabriel was born and raised, and still lives in San Francisco. He is currently enrolled at San Francisco State University, and is about a year away from receiving his B.A in Mathematics (w/ concentration in teaching). His plans after school are to enroll in a credential program so that he may one day teach 6th -12th grade mathematics for a distinguished school in the San Francisco Unified School District. Gabriel has been passionate about teaching since entering high school, and has never considered a different career path. He wants to make math fun and relevant for all students.
In his free time, Gabriel enjoys volunteering for various volunteer organizations and is a true SF Bay Area sports fan! He roots for the SF Giants, Golden State Warriors, and 49ers, and he plays in different recreational baseball and basketball leagues. One day he’d love to be a coach too!
Brandy is a Southern California native who moved to the Bay Area to continue to pursue her love for science education and health care. Brandy’s experience began as a supplemental instructor for organic chemistry II at the community college she attended. She then blossomed into a private tutor, tutoring local high school and middle school students varied levels of mathematics and science.
These teaching opportunities prompted Brandy to move to the Bay Area to become a full time science teacher. As a classroom teacher, Brandy taught AP environmental science, chemistry, and ethnic studies. Brandy continues to express her belief that all students are capable of understanding science with the proper study skills, time management, and through various teaching approaches.
When not tutoring, Brandy is a clinical coordinator and laboratory technician at a local health clinic. She also mentors through grassroots non-profit organizations. In her free time, she enjoys watching historical documentaries, sports games, and socializing with friends.
