I was a college teacher 20 years ago. Then I was a research engineer in a hospital, and now a researcher in a university. Now I am also a part time tutor.
I was very well trained in math up to graduate school level. I can instantly picture the best solutions to almost all questions of the math part of standardized tests, like SAT, ACT, GRE, etc. Being a PhD. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, I am also proficient in physics, electrical circuit analysis, control theory, medical image processing, etc.
I am patient and detail-oriented. I believe all students are different. They all have their strength and weakness. It's the tutor's responsibility to identify the students' weakness and to make the weak links strong. On the other hand, we have to realize that achievement takes practice and time. So we have to be patient when progress is in process. I believe details make the difference. A small mistake in the solution process can lead to a totally different answer, especially in standardized tests, where you don't get partial credits. Hence it's important to pay attention to every small detail and make sure each step is correct.
