" That means I know calculus inside and out, and I especially what it means in real world terms. Additionally, I've worked with students from high school through college on calculus, physics, and introductory economics, and have developed an appreciation for different styles of learning. Math is the language the universe speaks, and I'm very excited to learn about that as a physicist. As a tutor, I hope I can share some of that enthusiasm with you.."

" When I teach a math problem, I try to make sure my students understand not only how to solve the problem, but also how to explain the principles and the logic behind the solution. That way they can safely and confidently approach novel problems on their own. Finally, I believe it is important to make learning as fun and as interactive as possible. My goal is to get my students to enjoy math as much as I do."

"I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."

" Presently, I volunteer at a home for at-risk teens and help with interview skills, developing resumes, and filling out applications. Also, I substitute teach at a Catholic middle school in the West Suburbs. When tutoring, I believe it's important to stress understanding the concepts that can lead to true subject mastery. Often, these are touched upon in the classroom, where there simply isn't enough time to digest the ideas fully. Once understood, these concepts can save hours of effort when completing assignments and approaching future concepts." ...

"My goals are to help my clients gain confidence in themselves by learning and understanding at a moderate pace. My quantitative skills have grown by overcoming anxiety and achieving my goals. I experienced the same struggles as my students at a point in my career. These obstacles can be overcome because math is a logical subject that can be understood through proper advice and explanation. Math is not the only thing I enjoy in my spare time. I love working out and sports."

"During my Masters, I worked as a research assistant and trained two interns in data analysis, statistics and worked with them in completing research projects. In the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) I scored 800/800 in math which helped me secure admission to University of Texas at Austin with a tuition waiver. Prior to that, I graduated with a Bachelors in Technology from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in Civil Engineering with a 3.6 GPA. During summer vacation in my junior and senior years I trained high school students in Mathematics for the IIT JEE (Joint Entrance Examination), one of the most competitive exams with about 5% ...
