I have a unique experience of working with students of a variety of nationalities, professional background and skill levels.
To name a few examples:
1-1 tutoring in New York - Computer science to a USA undergraduate student, a Saudi Arabian Graduate student, taught python programming to a Taiwanese medicine research student. Algorithms to a Chinese PhD, a Korean.
Apart from this, I was teaching assistant for a Graduate level course at New York University, that had students from Europe, US, Asia. (https://people.csail.mit.edu/dsontag/courses/ml14/)
Regardless of the level of the student, I believe, I have a special ability to synchronize the level & pace of the course material to student's skill level.
I love tutoring when I am able to empower the students in improving their skills in achieving the objectives, while I also get to learn from them.
For me, it is a mutual learning experience and not just a designated teacher, teaching a designated student.
Akshay is fun and easy to work with. He is very knowledgeable in terms of computational skills (especially Python) and is a very responsible teacher. I would highly recommend him as a coding tutor.
At first, I like to understand the learning objective of the student. Whether it is preparing for a career, for GMAT/GRE, for getting a good grade in school or say learning a programming language / skill. I also like to know the student's previous tutoring experiences, any feedback from the same and expectations going forward.
After that, I spend a session to understand students skill level and plan a road map of learning - based on the time & budget constraints and the objective.
Thereafter, we follow the roadmap with periodic feedback sessions to ensure we are on the track, but also keep a room for adjustment as we go.
I completed B.Tech from IIT Delhi, in 1999.
M.S. Computer Science in New York University, 2012 - 2014.
At NYU, I was teaching assistant for 2 graduate level courses - Machine Learning and Advanced Data base systems. I also offered private tutoring to students at both Undergraduate level and graduate level.
I keep my pricing flexible based on the financial background of the student.
When I was studying at New York University, I took a part time job as a teaching assistant for 2 graduate level courses.
I also offered private tutoring in Programming, Mathematics and Machine Learning to under graduate students.
I have worked with students of diverse back grounds, from different nationalities.
E.g. American female under graduate in New York. Computer science
Saudi Arabian male student, comptuer science, New York
Taiwanese female student, python programming, New York.
Indian female student, data science, New York.
Chinese femake student, machine learning, New York
I was tutoring computer science to one of the american student in New York. The student was an undergraduate, while I was myself an student doing my Masters course.
Almost a year, after finishing the tutoring contract, I was searching for full time job. And we ended up meeting for a coffee in the campus. Without me even sharing anything about my job hunt process, she herself offered to fast track my resume in an organisation - where some of her relative was in a position of making hiring decision.
It was a plesant surprise outcome, that I never expected, when I had signed up only for tutoring for few sessions.
Think of teacher as someone, who is also their to learn something. The teacher has some expert skills to share, but every student is a fresh relationship - especially in 1-1 tutoring. It takes time even for the teacher to understand a student's strenghts and weaknesses.
So, do your basic due diligence, but be a bit patient with your expectations for the first few sessions.
The students must be clear about the time budget, money budget and self-practice time. Tutoring is most beneficial both for the student and the teacher - when it is not under undue stress of money or time constraints.
