I have a PhD in mathematics and a BS in engineering. I have 5 years of classroom experience, teaching statistics and calculus at University of Maryland. I have been doing paid and unpaid tutoring for 25 years now. I also teach at a college currently. My son will finish medical school this year, he also has a degree in Biochemical engineering. My daughter is a sophomore at UC Berkeley studying Environmental Engineering. I always volunteered at my children's schools. Now that my children do not need me as much as before; I try to help other children more.

I am quite knowledgeable because of my great education. However, my real value stems from my natural patience. My students all say that I put them at ease and that makes them feel free to learn. I am also able to explain the same thing in many different ways, or find different tools to help them learn and retain the material.

I am the first child in my large extended family to graduate from middle school, and I was able to go all the way to get a college degree and then a PhD. After I did, almost all of my siblings and cousins graduated from college and I was always there to help them--until I had to move to US to get my doctorate. However, to this day, they say that I not only helped them to learn, I inspired them.

After school play dates at our house always started with them doing their homework after a nutritious snack. This always surprised the playmates' parents, they could not believe that the homework was finished or at least halfway done when they came to pick up their children. I helped them to learn the material by turning it into some kind of game and then watched them do their homework. When one of them made a mistake I helped them to figure out their mistake and then correct it by themselves. I love teaching and I hope to be with the kids for many many years.

Excellent tutor: Very thorough, patient Hediye is truly an incredible tutor and teacher. I worked with her as I studied for the Math Praxis II (code 0061) exam. First, she is very patient and supportive. As I had not studied much of this material in depth for some time (years!), I felt really out of the loop with much of the material. So I greatly appreciated how Hediye was so patient with me. Second, Hediye seemed to have a good sen ...
