I tutor because I enjoy it. I also tutor because I am good at it.
I enjoy being able to empower students to feel the same euphoria that I felt when I overcame my own struggles in Math. Yes, I struggled with Math. I was a C minus student in Math on a good day. All the way up to High School, I worked hard, and tried, and failed to excel in Math. I excelled in all my other subjects, but Math was a different beast. In High School, I resolved to give Math my all, once and for all. I signed up for some intensive tutoring--3 hours a day, 6 days a week, for one month. On a grading scale (UK), where a score of 75% or higher is an A (and I was hoping to reach the 75% mark), I scored a 100% on my final exam. I was shocked, amazed, and ecstatic. I felt empowered to pursue any field of higher study. The tutoring that I received helped fill in the gaps and solidify my understanding of key fundamental concepts in Math. Once my foundation was solid, I was able to make progress on my own.
I went on to pursue my BSc in Computer Engineering and my MSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I have been tutoring for over a decade now, and am a Master Level Certified Tutor through the College Reading and Learning Association.
Having struggled, and eventually overcome those struggles in Math, I am committed to helping students succeed. I believe in the ability of each and every student to gain comfort with this often maligned subject. I adapt my teaching style to accommodate the unique learning style of each individual student. I have worked with students of a variety of ages and skill levels. I am patient and empathetic - because I know what it feels like to be on the other side of the tutor-student relationship.
In addition to Math, I also tutor SAT, and GRE prep. I also have experience preparing students to take the CLEP exam in College Algebra.
