I have a a pretty broad background in tutoring that spans across 10 years. I started in high school as an After School tutor in the library in more technical subject areas including all levels of math and sciences. I started my college career at NYU and continuously worked as a math and computer science tutor for HEOP (Higher Education Opportunity Program).
I consider myself a dedicated educator who is well qualified to provide the motivation and direction students need to successfully learn. After I graduated, I worked as adjunct instructor for Intro to Computer Science. I was able to enhance my teaching techniques and instructional methods by being a well-rounded student myself with over 10 years of one-on-one tutoring experience. I was able to diversify myself by getting involved in several extra-curriculum activities such as becoming President of Polytechnic Billiard Club. As a result, I have developed phenomenal communication, interpersonal, organizational, time management, and leadership skills. As an instructor, my teaching philosophy reflected my interests in collaborative authorship. Instead of the "full frontal teaching" method of large lectures of autocratic seminars, I prefer student-centered teaching that encourages learning by both students and teachers. I favor classroom dynamics that permit dialogue and foster a degree of student input as to curricula and grading criteria. And I like students to think about the class as a community. One of my greatest strengths as an educator is instilling a love for mathematics in my students. I have a true passion for mathematics and am adept at passing this on to my students.
When I taught Computer Science and Introduction to Calculus at NYU-Poly, I was awarded with the highest student evaluation scores. A little bit about myself, currently, I work as software analyst at Epic in Verona and enjoy every moment because I'm constantly challenged and I get to work with some of the best minds I've ever met across the country.
