I am passionate about teaching but I am also not without doubt whether things can be taught completely. I am of the opinion that students already have sufficient knowledge, however due to one obscurity or the another, it is not readily accessible to themselves. For instance, Mathematics is hard for many because of the strangeness of the language. To imagine x square in Algebra is the same thing as erecting a square on a line of length "x" in Geometry may or may not have been taught to him/her. The crisis of the current mathematical and scientific subjects challenging the young minds is the language that obscures the obvious. Having said that, however, the scientific language is as such for the benefit of the subject and its torch-bearers. The problem that I want to point towards is not the language but the lack of proper training to understand the language. I will be aiding not in the mechanical act of doing homework. How to do a problem will come naturally when you know what you are doing and why.

I have been tutoring for last five years. I have also been a Math Assistant for a school where the original texts of Newton, Einstein, Maxwell, Faraday and Poincare, among many others, are read. My education started out with questioning Euclid's first definition of point as a breadth-less length and ended up deconstructing the Euclidean Geometry. I have struggled with the notions which many of the young minds do because of the lack of explanation provided by modern books.

In my session, I will not just be helping my clients in their particular problems with the subject matter but help them see the root of the problem, in an effort to subsequently, switch on the light to show the beauty of these subjects and languages in all its majesty.

To be particular, I will be looking after the subjects pertaining to Maths (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus) and Sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Biology). I am also interested in teaching Philosophy and Political Science.

Algebra 1

I have been a Math Assistant for my college, making and scoring tests for Sophomore level students and beyond.

Algebra 2

The question is what does Algebra allow us and what it prevents us from knowing? If x^2 is a square on line x, what is x^10? The ten dimension is a small number for the mighty Algebra but it is impossible for our imagination. We need to understand why Algebra was a necessary invention if we want to tackle the impossibility of its expressions.

Geometry

The infallibility of geometric deduction has been a model to many other subjects like logic. I have studied Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry in my college-work. I will make a geometry lesson fun and thought-provoking.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is the transition between the real and the imaginary mathematics and as is the case with many changes, it is hard to adapt and especially if the change that is being proposed is written in a completely abstract language.

TOEFL

I am a non-native speaker and took TOEFL about 5 years back to do my undergraduate in English literature here. Now I am in grad school. Although English is my second language I have scored above 90 percentile in all my TOEFL, ACT, and now GRE verbal. My experience with successfully learning English as well as taking TOEFL as well as other tests will surely be of some help to those who need to take the test.
