Being a student fresh out of my undergraduate studies, currently pursuing my masters at NYU, I know what it takes to be a student and the understanding needed to succeed in the technical fields, maths and physics being my area of specialization.
I am currently enrolled in a 5 year double degree program, BSc in Physics from st. johns university and Masters in Electrical engineering from NYU poly, and it is exactly as hard as it sounds. I graduate from St. John's university by May 2011 and from NYU poly by May 2012.
Tutoring has always being an activity I enjoy, throughout my undergraduate years, I have always held groups meetings with classmates where we studied together and discovered I had a way of reaching one's understanding "better" than the professor reach my classmates. By better, I mean more effectively, not claiming i have the most knowledge, but the exact opposite, willing to be involved in the learning process together with the student being taught. This method entails understanding the student's process of thinking, and teaching on that frequency.
Education is and institution I cherish a lot and passing on the knowledge and technique I have acquired is my way of supporting education. Also the idea that technical subjects such as math physics are impossible or should be feared is an idea I'm strongly against and which I wish to eliminate from my students.
