5 Star Tutor_Maths-Stats-Economics
I have 12+ years of teaching experience in few Colleges/Universities--University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Marquette University, Cardinal Stritch University, and also worked in private sector before coming to academia. In University I taught more than 15 different courses. I hold Graduate degrees in Economics, Statistics and Mathematics. During Masters and PhD my specialization was in Statistics/Econometrics. I have always tutored in my available time, as I love learning and teaching. And through tutoring I get to work with and help students from different schools, cities, demographics, and walks of life..And I know I do a great job, making students understand the concepts using both academic and professional knowledge and examples . Not to brag, but still want to mention, that I won many teaching awards . I just love/practice mathematics, statistics, economics and sports/yoga/meditation. I am a huge believer and practitioner of a balance between physical+mental+emotional+spiritual health.
My main areas of focus are: Statistics/Econemetrics, Micro/Macro-economics, Calculus, Algebra [ all these courses from High School to Graduate level], GRE/GMAT/ACT/SAT.
It's fun to explain the same concept to different people in different ways based on their academic and professional background. And I believe if I can make them understand a concept , that means I understood the concept really well.
I love helping others achieve their goals, and in the process I enhance my learning and experience at every step. And I strongly believe my learning, understanding and explaining power became stronger and more effective working with students with varied requirements, expectations and levels of interests and motivation level.
As Albert Einstein said, "If you can't explain it simply, then you don't understand well enough", and I really believe it and try my best to implement it.
Also as the saying goes, knowledge is power, but learning is super-power.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
During our first session, I try to get to know my student a little bit, his/her academic background, expectations from our future sessions etc. But before our first meeting -- face-to-face or online --usually I had a phone conversation with my prospective student and go over his/her syllabus, and any other relevant materials which i ask my student to email me in advance. In that way even before our first meeting I have a decent idea about the course/s and where my student stands. Then in our first session we start working on some relatively medium standard problems [ current topic which is being covered in class], and then depending on how comfortable my student is with those problems/examples I either take couple of steps back or couple of steps ahead and adjust the pace and depth accordingly. I also try to understand what issues the students are facing in their regular classes and how can I help. Every student is different in their abilities and learning methods, hence my teaching methods are totally customized as per the students. I make sure that our session does not become one more classroom lecture but a good supplemet to the lectures. I usually like starting with more examples, ideally real life examples, then link with the theories, applications then at last formula. I try my best to make the learning process more organic, interesting and not just theory or formula based. I believe in 'practice makes pefect', hence we work on lot of problems, both while we are working together and then I also assign lot of problems as homework, making sure that the work I assign is not being an overload to the students, but helping the students with his/her classworks/homeworks.
