As a child, mathematics was a beast to battle. However, with determined parents, dedicated and persistent math teachers throughout the years, I graduated with honors from college with one of my majors being mathematics. This accomplishment has taught me the significance of having people in my life that have shown commitment to my success, and I now want to be one of those people in someone else’s life through my tutoring.

I tutored math in high school and continued tutoring math and computer programming for a year in college, where I graduated with a double major in mathematics and management information systems, and a minor in computer science. My past tutoring experiences have taught me to be patient, optimistic, energetic and steadfast. They have also taught me to be creative as people learn differently and allowed me to explore my adaptability to different learning styles. I am currently a graduate student earning my master’s in teaching with a mathematics focus and am gaining worlds of knowledge that I believe benefits me as a tutor.

Before beginning any tutoring session, I like to meet in person to clearly identify and define the expectations you have in terms of learning targets. I like to learn a little more about you and/or your child. This helps me try to understand what your/or your child’s learning style may be and effectively prepare for our tutoring sessions, creatively incorporating techniques that may appeal more to the learning style.

If your expectation is to help you or your child keep on top of math, writing and/or computer school work, I will provide the energy, patience and encouragement needed to keep you or your child motivated and focused on getting work done.

If you are in need of a helping hand with understanding math or computer school work, I will create a plan that:
1) assesses you or your child’s learning targets,
2) continuously improves and responds to you or your child to ensure that you or your child reaches the learning targets,
3) provides encouraging and motivating feedback each time you or your child reaches a learning target.

Allow me to be a form of support and encouragement through my tutoring.

Hope to hear from you soon! I will make sure to respond within 24 hours.

JavaScript

JavaScript is one of the most popular programming languages. Given its popularity, understanding JavaScript and its uses can open up a world of opportunities. With about 7 years experience with programming in Computer Science and as a volunteer for professional organizations, I have worked several times with JavaScript. I have also helped individuals work with JavaScript and aim to make understanding JavaScript as easy as understanding your first language!

Linux

I Graduated from Luther College with a minor in Computer Science. As a Computer Science student, I was given a Linux and Unix account in order to complete Computer Science projects. Therefore I have experience with working with Linux/Unix.

Also, I have close to 3 years experience as an IT Auditor. This included performing technical reviews of Linux and Unix servers at client sites.

Python

As part of my undergraduate degree I studied Computer Science and the first language I learned was Python. Python provided me a strong foundation to build upon as I learned more programming languages. It includes many aspects of programming, while remaining less complex than other programming languages. I would love to work with others and help them also benefit as much as I did from Python. During my undergraduate time, I gained experience helping classmates and students work through their Python projects and understand syntax and semantics of the language.

UNIX

As mentioned above, I graduated from Luther College with a minor in Computer Science. As a Computer Science student, I was given a Linux and Unix account in order to complete Computer Science projects. Therefore, I have experience with working with Linux/Unix.

Also, I have close to 3 years experience as an IT Auditor. This included performing technical reviews of Linux and Unix servers at client sites.

Web Design

I have had about 7 years' interactions with programming as part of my undergraduate degree and as a volunteer for professional organizations. I minored in Computer Science and studied various programming languages such as Python, Java, JavaScript and HTML in college. During this time I helped classmates with understanding the programming languages and completing homework. Also, I have also helped to manage and maintain Organizational websites.

True Teaching Spirit — My son, who is an 8th grader, has been struggling with Math. Having not retained some of the basics: long division, multiplication rules, fractions, the current material, Algebra and Geometry have been a huge frustration. We reached out to Efe, who responded almost immediately. She assessed the situation and came up with a game plan. Efe felt that he was perhaps a visual learner, so she structured ...
