I recently graduated with my B.S. Civil Engineering degree (which required me to succeed in Calculus 3 and two even harder math subjects) and I work full-time at a civil engineering firm in Orlando, FL.
Over a span of eight years I have tutored in engineering, science, and math courses. The students I have tutored thus far were in elementary school, middle school, high school and college. I even tutored a middle-aged woman who had decided to obtain another degree to gain tenure at her job. Tutoring is TREMENDOUSLY fulfilling to me and I wish to eventually become a college professor of S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering, and math) courses.
Throughout my eight years of tutoring I have learned how to adapt to different ways of learning. I have also been able to learn about myself as a tutor, which has allowed me to continuously improve my tutoring skills. I have taken nine math courses, and they all build on the previous ones. Because of that comprehensive education I am able to understand, for example, how a theorem is derived, and reteach it to myself using concepts I learned in earlier courses. Being able to understand a result from multiple angles allows me to explain concepts in various ways, something my students undoubtably benefit from.
My friendly, “no-pressure” personality ensures students that they can ask as many questions as they want. I know that students learn at different paces and I do not ever “run out of patience” with them. And lastly, I maintain a fun, uplifting attitude throughout the entire tutoring session. I believe these are all things that contribute to my effectiveness. I look forward to helping students recognize their untapped potential. I hope you consider working with me.

I believe that each and every success I contribute to is a success of my own.
I take pride in the effort I put into my students feeling at ease with me. I find that many tutors, while extremely versed in their subject, are either incapable of "getting on the level" of the student being tutored, or simply choose not to. When a student feels that they can relate to their tutor they are less reluctant to hide any shortcomings they may be struggling with and are more receptive to any compliments or critiques their tutor may give. This allows the tutor to better target those areas of weakness, and provide sufficient feedback so that the student can perform even better on future assignments or exams.
She is very patient. Repeating procedures if necessary with always a positive attitude "cheering me on" with you can do it, great job! When she tutored me in Algebra, she made time in her schedule even when we didn't have a scheduled time planned. She knows how to explain something that is easily understood. I received more understanding from her during our tutoring than in the classroom. She is very friendly and outgoing and loves helping people succeed. I hadn't had any college classes in 30 years and she always was definitely instrumental in me passing that class with an A. Math was never my strong subject even in high school in the late 70s.
Miss Arianna Rambaram has amply demonstrated that she is a very diligent and intelligent person who is also very kind. She arrives punctually every time for our math tutoring sessions. Miss Arianna Rambaram clearly enjoys helping students. Her passion for tutoring is very evident. It is easy to tell that she has had prior experience with tutoring, as she brings her own resourceful methods to our tutoring sessions. Miss Arianna Rambaram is always very polite in talking to students and their parents. She once brought a bag of candies so as to reward/encourage students to continue to do well in math. I was very pleased to see that one of the parents in our tutoring program explicitly requested for Miss Arianna Rambaram to become his student's personal tutor.
When first meeting with a student, I ask them what areas of the course’s content they feel they can improve upon. If possible, I ask the student to show me some of their completed assignments, and that usually gives me an even better idea of where their strengths and weaknesses are.
Next, I ask the student if there is a particular topic they would like to be tutored on first, and if the student has no preference I choose an order of lessons based off of how I know the subjects "build" off of one another. We can then put together a plan-of-action to tackle all necessary topics within the student’s deadline, if one exists.
If any adjustments to availability, hourly rates, or even location need to be made I am open to discussing all options.
