I am a graduate student at Illinois Institute of Institute of Technology in Hardware Engineering. I received my Bachelor of Science in Computer with a focus on control systems and computer architecture. After graduating in 2015, I worked in the industry as a consultant and continued tutoring Engineering Statistics and Computer Engineering classes. My tutoring experience includes a broad range of subjects and age groups I can offer extensive flexibility among disciplines and use technology to visualize them. I have prepared students for IB and SAT and tutored Mathematics, Statistics, Chemistry, Engineering, Physics and Computer Science on various levels. Even though my tutoring experience is very extensive, I love teaching physics and calculus. It's something I have to use in my everyday life as a research assistant and I like visualizing examples rather than memorizing formulas and theories to get my end results. I am what people call as a knowledge sponge. I love learning in general. You can find me doing Sudoku or crosswords in a coffee shop or doing experiments in the lab, but the end of goal is the same: learning something new. I believe with knowledge we can improve our quality of life and become more intellectual beings. As far as hobbies and side projects goes, I enjoy cooking professionally, working with my hands building or working on robots, electrical cars and control circuits, and love watching and playing soccer.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?
Reassuring them it is okay to ask questions. Make sure the student understands the concept first, and then introduce some practice questions and build on more knowledge that way. Afterwards, the student can recognize a pattern in the questions and be able to apply the theory directly.
How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?
Initially, I ask my students what is the outcome of the sessions. If they need help in certain areas or a certain teaching style, I just focus on that. To me, it's more important for the student to feel comfortable with the material after each session.
