Solving the world’s problems has always been pleasing to me, being able to put a smile on a person’s face by solving their problems is quite satisfying which is why I became a Math Tutor. As an individual, I alone cannot eradicate the problems that the world faces but this would definitely be a start. As Wade Boggs said, “a positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results”. That being said, I look forward to the opportunity that will present itself through this company for me to contribute my own little quota. As a tutor, I understand that not every student is the same thus I try to understand the strengths and weakness of a student before devising a method which I believe would be a great study pattern for them. I encourage interactive and collaborative learning as well as setting a goal for ones self without making it a set limit. Most of all, I believe learning should be fun and I always try to make sure it is.

What is your teaching philosophy?
No two people are the same, thus I strive to be versatile in the way I approach teaching each student. Also, I create an interactive and collaborative environment that promotes problem-solving skills. Most of all, I give a lot of examples to help in understanding the material at hand.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would get to know the student and try to understand his/her strengths and weakness to help me know what approach to take in teaching.
