I have an Electrical and Computer Engineering degree from a prestigious Top 10 United States university. I have abundant academic, extracurricular, and some professional experience in technical areas, such as math, science, computer science and software engineering.
I have about 6 months experience as a Teaching Assistant for Advanced High School and Pre-College Mathematics (Pre-calculus, Calculus track). I have also taught Electronics and Computer Science skills as part of extracurricular program for 2 years.
As part of the admissions for my university, I have passed rigorous standards of SAT Testing and can also advise how to improve scores for both SAT/ACT Test Prep.
The single most satisfying part of my work is seeing students gain confidence in themselves. For the most part, I find that I work best as a catalyst that brings out the students' innate abilities and helps them get closer to their goals.
I also love challenges and like showing students to meet hurdles with enthusiasm and belief that they will succeed (which they will!)

I first have an introductory email or phone consult to discuss their needs and academic background. I'd like to get a thorough picture of what they're looking for.
Depending on whether it's a consistent (e.g. weekly session) or an as-needed basis, I can work with the student to find a program that works best for them.
I'm always very adaptable and responsive to students' comfort level and ease of understanding the content we work on, so I can fine-tune sessions to mold each student's needs
I have a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Duke University, a Top 10 institution
I also have some professional experience in Electronics Engineering and Software Engineering that adds depth to my expertise
Yes, I have a system of $25/hour for all students, during which we can discuss any combination of academic subject/topic that the student desires.
I also offer discounts for bulk time-slots, if taken in chunks of 3+ hours. These details would depend on the degree of intervention and the student's desired requirements.
I actually dove head-first into teaching when I worked as a Teaching Assistant for Gifted Students in Advanced High School/Early College Mathematics.
Since then, I've been exploring a variety of subjects in which I could share my knowledge.
I've worked with both students ahead of their peers and students who need a little extra attention.
I'd tell him/her to understand what that teacher's qualifications are and determine if those would be adequate for their needs. If that isn't enough information, do not be afraid to contact the teacher by email and ask for their qualifications and experience in the desired topics.
Then if the qualifications are there, if the student is comfortable in the first session or two with the teacher, that usually indicates a good sign of progress
First of all, be honest with yourself. If you are doing well in a particular type of subject or problem, great, pat yourself on the back and keep up what you're doing.
If you come across a more difficult or confusing topic, don't worry. Just understand that you'll have to try something different and explore your options from there. Somehow if none of your methods works, then it's a good time to seek help with a teacher or someone similar.
The goal is to do as much as possible within your comfort zone so you can get the best help for those areas you really need
