About this tutor

I like to have the student tell me which area that he/she is struggling, and tell me what he/she understands so far.  From there, I will correct their understanding (if it was wrong), or confirm that their understanding is correct, and use a simpler problem to help him/her understand the basic before moving on to a more difficult problem.  

I use a "I do, We do, You do" teaching method that involves demonstrations, participation, and practice.  This helps the student be more confident in solving math problems. 

In order to help my students visualize math problems, I like to draw things out and break it down so it's not overwhelming for the student.  

Helping others understand the simplicity of math and how it is relevant and applicable to our daily lives.

    Ely’s teaching method and ability to show and explain how to breakdown a problem is doing wonders for my son. He is now starting to really crasp the core concepts in pre-algebra. The extra work and notes Ely assign him is something he can use and always refer back to.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I meet with the new student 30 minutes prior to the session (free of charge).  I use this time to get to know the student better so I can optimize the session to help the student learn.  During this time, I give them an assessment test that I don't grade in front of the student.  By looking at the answer, I am able to understand the student's areas of strenghts and opportunity.  


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a background in Engineering where I had to take higher math classes, such as differential equation, linear algebra, and multi-variable calculus.  

I have been tutoring adult student at Strong City Baltimore - Adult Learning Center for the last 1.5 year.  


How did you get started teaching?

Back when I was in college, I volunteered at the math center to help others with their math.  I really enjoyed teaching math problems by simplifying it at first before getting into more difficult problems. 

Then I graduated and found a job (which I love), and somewhere along the way, I missed teaching math and helping others to see how simple math can be.  So in August of 2017, I started tutoring at Strong City Baltimore - Adult Learning Center, where I tutored math for adults who are trying to get their GED.  

One of my students passed his math test in Dec of 2017 and was finally able to get his GED.  It was one of the best Christmas gift I got that year.  


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with teenagers in high school, and adults in the late 50s who were struggling with subtractions/additions/multiplications.  But I have also worked students in middle school who were advanced with math.
