Math Made Magic
I've been teaching Math to highschool students since 2013. I did take a break from teaching, to get my MBA, and here I am, stepping into the world of teaching again! And it's not just highschool math, let's dive into corporate finance and economics while we're at it!
My mentor used to say, "you haven't understood it well enough if you can't explain it". I've always loved math, and if you hate it, I believe i can change your mind.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
First step is always determining what a student is confident with, and then work your way up.
I've tutored several high school students who needed concept clarity for math taught in middle school. That might be a problem for some, but not for me.
I'll help them through their foundations before they think of building the floors!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have experience teaching math to a class of 80-100 students, and I have one-on-one tutoring experience as well.
Shoot me up if you want to know more about them.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Each student is different, I'll take a free session to analyze how and where to start, and we can proceed from there
What types of students have you worked with?
I've tutored a wide range of students, from elementary school, to highschool, to university.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
The credentials of the teacher are not as important as his ability to teach.
My favorite math professor was a genius. A gold medalist from a top university in India, and he authored 2 great books for College math. But, he was a terrible teacher. He could work well with students who understood him, but he wasn't versatile enough.
My best advice is "find someone who can drop the explanation down to your level of understanding"
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
If you're in grade 9 and having trouble, you need to ask yourself, "if i were to give my grade 8 math exam today, would i ace it?"
Analyse what you understand and what you don't. And if you start feeling stuck, I'm here to help!
