I'm a Math Tutor and Supplemental Instructor at Santa Monica College. I've been tutoring Math for 2 years. I focus on delivering the simplicity and the beauty of Math to my students. Very patient when I tutor as I enjoy tutoring and find my joy when someone says "I got it".
People always complain about Math because schools don't teach them how to connect it and apply it to their real life situations. There is so much fun and beauty behind Math only when it's taught in a right way!
Recently, I achieved a new record for Math tutors at Santa Monica college by tutoring 1031 students within a year.
