Hello prospective student/parent,
I am an experienced tutor specializing in math for all grades – right from the elementary grade all the way to undergraduate college level -, elementary English and undergraduate level accounting, finance and economics. I also help students in test prep, mainly SAT and GRE math. I can travel to areas near Gaithersburg – mainly Rockville and Germantown. I also take group lessons and my hourly rate will be adjusted according to the number of students in the group.
Since I work with students of all age groups, I take a different approach with every student. For elementary grade students, I bring my own prepared material to the lessons and design study plans for students with long term commitments intended to develop language and math skills and instill the fundamentals. My main focus for the elementary grade levels is on reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, creative writing and logic. For high school students, I focus upon math and test prep. I teach AP Statistics, Algebra, Calculus BC and also SAT Math. For undergraduate college students, I focus upon their course content and help them get through the class by assisting on homework and computer assignments. I am well versed with SPSS, STATA, R, Minitab and MS-Excel for statistics students. I have taught accounting and finance up to intermediate level, and I can also handle microeconomics.
I began my teaching and tutoring 4 years ago. During this time, I have accumulated more than a thousand hours of experience both as an independent tutor and as a substitute teacher in MCPS. To get experience with the teaching methods of learning centers in the area, I also taught in two of the popular learning centers. All of this exposure has given me a great insight into strengths and weaknesses of our comprehensive education system, and this knowledge helps me greatly when I work as a tutor.
My credentials include two masters degrees – an MBA in Finance and an MS in Statistics. I also have 5 years of corporate experience in the insurance and banking industry. I started as a data analyst and ascended to the position of a manager of the business intelligence operations in the Analytics department of one of the largest banks overseas. I left my job due to changing family commitments and decided to pursue teaching – an endeavor I have always loved.
The parents and students I have worked with have always commended me for my approachable and friendly personality. As a tutor, that’s the most important thing I bring to the table - I am good at creating a comfort level with my clients so they can put their trust in me. I am also flexible with timings and can usually handle last minute changes for my regular clients. I offer very competitive rates for my expertise compared to other tutors in this area. My motto is to see my students succeed and I always go the extra mile for them when needed.
I wish you the best in your studies.
