About Us

Originally operating as Wise Owl Tutoring since 2003, Red Apple Tutoring was founded by Jerry Leventer in April 2007 in order to meet the needs of parents, teachers, and students who are looking for a private tutor.

My Background

I am a Credentialed Substitute Teacher, and since 2003 I have been helping Middle School, High School, and College Students achieve better results in Math, Essay Writing, Standardized Test Preparation, computer skills, and other subjects. I care about the success of my students personal development and academic performance. I want to help your child to achieve his or her highest potential in all areas of his or her life.

I have been helping people of all ages develop greater self-confidence, study more effectively, and excel academically. I am continually looking for positive incentives that will inspire my students to work with a sense of purpose toward attainable goals.

I have found that some students are self-motivated while others need more guidance and personal attention, and still others just need the support of a private tutor to keep them on track. I have worked with many personality types and I am available to discuss different ways to help you with your child’s individual needs. With proper focus and sustained effort your teen or college student will learn how to develop better study habits, get better grades, have more options, and make better decisions about his or her future.

Professional Credentials

Before I began my career as an educator, I received my Electrical and Computer Engineering degree at the University of California, Santa Barbara, prior to which I studied Psychology and Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

After working for 15 years as an Electrical and Software Engineer, I am now a full-time private tutor based in Mountain View, California. I am a credentialed substitute teacher and have taught at Middle Schools and High Schools in the Cupertino, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Fremont Union, Mountain View, and Sequoia school districts.

I provide in-home tutoring services to the Mid-Peninsula and South Bay areas such as Saratoga, Cupertino, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Woodside, and surrounding areas.

My rates are reasonable and my service is personalized. One-on-One attention from a professional tutor may be just what it takes for your child to begin to reach his or her highest potential in academic studies and professional career.
