My name is Sherif, and I love helping others in resolving math problems.
My wife and I have five children that I have been consistently helping in their math classes throughout their schooling. My youngest two now attend Naperville North HS (10th grade) and Jefferson Junior HS (7th grade) in Naperville District 203.
I graduated from IIT with a BSEE degree, and have worked as a software programmer/engineer/tester for over 25 years. I am eager to embark on something I really wanted to do for a long time -- tutor students in math, just like I did when I helped my fellow classmates in my school days. I can also tutor high school physics or 1st year college physics.
I have had experience as a math substitute teacher in Naperville, Lisle, and Hinsdale school districts, and I have tutored children of my friends in the past.
In general, I favor a "hands-on" approach to teaching that involves a lot of interaction between the tutor and student, and concrete experiences in addition to worksheets. I can also vary my explanations as needed to ensure my student understands the concept behind the solution. I am willing to tutor at my house, your house, or a conveniently located public area such as a library or cafe.
I look forward to hearing from you!
