As a tutor, I don't catch fish for you; instead, I teach you how to fish!
I am a recent graduate from The University of Chicago. I have been tutoring part time for 5 years and full time for 2 years and have been very successful with Standardized Tests like the ACT
, etc. I have helped many students improve their test scores significantly. I myself scored 1510 out of 1600: (800 Quant. and 710 verbal) on the GRE test and 1450 on the SAT.
Teaching/tutoring is my true passion; I chose it over a research and a programming
line of work. I take it very seriously and take great satisfaction in making a difference towards a student's future. My focus is not only on solving problems that students come to me with, but on guiding them how to tackle problems of all difficulty levels quickly and with ease. I also teach effective ways of learning and shortcuts for math
calculations, and provide tips to memorize things easily.
All of my students in the past 5 years have found me unique in that I ask you important questions and have you effectively work through the problem on your own, instead of giving you the solution.
There can be many lurking hindrances keeping a student from learning, e,g, lack of interest, lack of confidence and comfort etc. I believe in talking to students about their fear, anxiety and worries about a course material or test taking and giving them suggestions on how to relieve them. I have worked with students who had little to no interest in math and was successful in making it entertaining enough for them.
In short, I care about my students' progress just as much as I cared about my own grades and scores.
