Hi, I’m Darryl Cifarelli… “Your Un-Common Common Core Math Tutor.
Please note that lessons can also be conducted one on one with either zoom or facetime
I’m the founder of Algebra, Geometry & Basic Math Tutoring. My goal is to eliminate confusion, with individual, one-on-one instruction at your home. I’ve have over 20 years of math tutoring experience in the North County San Diego area, including Carlsbad, Encinitas, La Costa, Leucadia, Oceanside, Rancho Santa Fe, San Elijo, San Marcos, and Solana Beach. I provide Common Core math tutoring, including Pre-Algebra , Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Integrated Math 1 & 2, and Geometry.
Algebra and Geometry are two areas where even kids who are strong students can hit a wall. Fear of failure can cause them to shut down and lose their motivation to try. This can be tough on parents, too, because even if you consider yourself a “numbers person,” the Common Core’s “new math” can be a challenge—it’s quite different from how we were taught in school. I have the experience and empathy to help struggling students, and know how to be effective in helping them learn, grow, and succeed!

What my clients are saying!
My daughter (High School Sophmore) challenged herself this year by signing up for Honors Geometry. We enlisted the help of Daryl to tutor her through the course. Best decision we could have made. Daryl’s knowledge of the subject matter, patience, flexibility and teaching ability all combined to give my daughter the confidence to tackle her most difficult subject and achieve a high grade. I recommend Daryl for any kids out there looking for some incremental support in higher level math. We will continue to use him for the rest of high school math and feel very fortunate to have found him.
Darryl has been working with my son for two years now, helping him with both Algebra and Geometry. My son has math phobia and Darryl has really assisted him in learning how to work through problems and to gain confidence in math. During the pandemic, my son found himself looking forward to his weekly tutoring sessions with Darryl. He is truly one of the best tutors out there — patient, kind, understanding and supportive. We were very lucky to find him through Nextdoor!
We are so grateful that we found Darryl! I first contacted him at the very end of the 2013-2014 school year. My son was a freshman in HS and was struggling in Geometry. He was in danger of having to repeat the class. We only had a few weeks to turn the situation around. Darryl was wonderful. He went out of his way to make himself available for whatever help our son needed. In just a few short weeks, we got his grade up from a high D to a low B. (more…)
We love Darryl ! Rarely does a find come along like Darryl. He is much more than an adept tutor with all the necessary academic qualifications…he took our daughter through all required years of High School math.His approach was first of all to genuinely care, then to listen, to assess and then to impart the knowledge in a way that allowed our daughter to fully accomplish all that was required of her. Thank you Darryl!
“It is an amazing thing to really understand something!” That is what my son, in high school, exclaimed after one of Darryl’s recent tutoring sessions. I wouldn’t have guessed that my boy would ever be excited about math. But Darryl has a way of quietly explaining and directing him through new concepts and challenging problems, (more…)
Darryl loves what he does. His caring and genuine interest in his students’ success is apparent. I would strongly recommend him to anyone needing tutoring assistance.
