Hello, my name is Sirwan. I am a math tutor with more than 15 years of experience in tutoring math. I currently hold a civil engineering Bachelor's degree, and graduated in 1992. I am capable of teaching prealgebra, algebra1, algebra 2, trigonometry, geometry, precalculus, calculus, college level math, and static, dynamic, and strength material as well. (All level from elementary to high school math).

Based on my experience, I found three important strategies very effect in learning math. First of all my students must fully understand the concept, then I tell them to study smart, not hard! Additionally, I will teach them to read and look at the problem in depth and ask them "what did you get from the question" or "what is the problem telling you" then students are asked to write down the given known information and finally to bring out their knowledge and use the correct formula to solve various problems. I emphasize to my students that they should not memorize math, but fully understand the concept. For my students convenience I will solve the problems step by step with them, then I will ask them to solve again with some help, finally they should solve the problems without any assistance. I believe solving more problems would help in understanding and giving students more confidence at math.
