About this tutor

I like to breakdown the intuition behind math problems in a casual language so the student can relate and understand better, but on paper we use rigorous language to define math expressions so that the student learns the proper notations, formulas, definitions, etc. without having to spend hours memorizing. Casual language helps connect math to real life. Once the student has a grasp of the intuition, the "hard" problem suddenly becomes something that just clicks with them. I belive this approach of mixing rigorous writing and casual language is of great benefit to all my students from elementary to college, and it can be used for any topic under any subject for any student. 

Everyone can use math no matter what, and I enjoy the fact that no matter what I have something to offer anyone who wants it.

FAQs


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

When I work with a student I have never met before I like to begin with a brief interview with the student (and parent if they're available). Ideally I would like to find out what the student's dedication, ambitions, and limitations may be, as well as their current understanding of the topic. Once we agree that I am the right fit for the student then I begin right away with my lesson plan which includes using casual language to explain the rigorous math problems the student struggles with. 


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

I love math and will soon be getting my degree in Mathematics. I know everything in math from basic arithmetic to calculus and even some higher maths. On top of this I have worked with autistic children in the past and have spent lots of time learning how to reach people who struggle to communicate and understand certain concepts.


How did you get started teaching?

I began tutoring when my cousin needed help in math and since then I realized I can make a big difference in peoples lives by tutoring, specifically math. Schools do not do well in teaching among many different styles of learning, so I wanted to change that by helping as many students as possible understand mathematics with a personalized lesson plan. Mathematics is the language of the universe, it appears everywhere and in all aspects of life, everyone has a use for it, and that is why I love teaching math.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with children as young as 10 all the way up to college age, and even some adults wanting to improve themselves in their free time. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Give it a try, there's no reason not to. Even if you're an exerienced mathmetician simply having another perspective or style teach you could change how you think about things entirely. Also, be honest with yourself and with the teacher/tutor. If you honestly want to improve youself and are honest with your teacher then you will improve by miles instead of inches. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1) What do I want to know exactly?

2) Why do I want to know it?

3) Am I asking the right question?

4a) Did I already try to solve it? 

4b) Did I already ask a peer?

5) What do I already know about this topic?
