As a student approaches a subject, there are two major factors to success: a solid foundation in the fundamentals and skills at solving problems. The fundamentals are very important for understanding why aspects of the subject work the way they do and to be able to build on one aspect to understand others. Being able to solve problems means the student can apply what they have learned in useful ways.
As a tutor, my role is to insure that the student is proficient in both parts of learning the subject, using a systematic approach which is part of the general learning processes. The first step is to identify the student's strengths and weaknesses in the subject. The aspects where there is difficulty can then be addressed in smaller pieces, which is less overwhelming. As the student grasps the pieces, there is a sense of accomplishment, making continuing progress easier. As the fundamentals and problem solving get stronger, test results will reflect the improvement.
I have a BS in physics and PhD in physics (astrophysics) from MIT, doing extensive teaching and tutoring along the way. I created and taught "A Crash Course in C", a 16-hour course, which is still being taught today. Since then, I worked at a software company, using Python and Perl to do part of my job. I am now returning to the world of education, one aspect being tutoring.
I developed and taught "A Crash Course in C" at MIT for 6 years. It was a 16-hour class covering all of the language. I also used C for my graduate school research and at my job, so I can give real-world context when tutoring.
As an undergraduate and graduate student in physics, applied mathematics, including calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra, was one of the main tools used to solve problems. When teaching physics, if the student was not comfortable with the math needed to understand the material, I filled in the gaps.
I developed and taught "A Crash Course in C" at a university for 6 years. It was a 16-hour class covering all of the language. I used C, Perl, and Python for my graduate school research and at my job, as a software development manager, so I can give real-world context when tutoring.
To do part of my job as a software development manager, I taught myself Python, building on other languages and general programming skills. Having taught myself, and then used it extensively, puts me in a good position to tutor others.
I have been playing competitive volleyball for over a decade, and have played in the USAV Adult Nationals six years. For three seasons, I coached a junior olympics club team (16U, 17U, 16U). I am Impact certified, the first level of the USAV coach's accreditation program. I have also coached an adult skills clinic for two years.
Excellent Tutor! — Anand helped me succeed in a coding course I was struggling with through his patient and thorough explanations. He always steered me towards discovering the answer for myself as opposed to simply spoon-feeding it to me. A fantastic tutor overall. Definitely recommend! ...
