My greatest satisfaction as a tutor comes at the “aha” moment, when everything clicks for a student and a bright smile flashes across their face. My goal is to not only help my students tackle the problems laid before us during a tutoring session, but to equip them with the tools and techniques to be successful. Some are intimidated by Math, some need more time for the concepts to sink in, and others find Math a boring chore they have to do to get by. My goal is to only help you become more confident in your abilities, but also make the learning process fun. I believe learning is best when the delivery is lively and engaging, and I strive to bring that to every tutoring session.
I believe tutoring is more than an extra lesson. It is an opportunity for the tutor to address all the questions that the student didn’t get a chance or was too timid to ask. It’s a platform to address concepts from a different perspective, in a manner suited to the student. The traditional pedagogy is lecture based and fails to address the varying needs of students. Some people are visual and most certainly learn better in a smaller setting. As a tutor, I adjust my style and pace to suit the different students. I have extensive experience working with varying levels and age groups; from the 8th grader struggling with the proofs in Geometry to the 12th grader students scaling the contours of variable Multivariable Calculus. I had the privilege of working with both the regular classes and the honors classes which not only challenged me, but allowed me to hone myself into a better teacher. I was also blessed to have a very experienced educator for a coach, whose enthusiasm for teaching I happily embraced. That teaching experience is backed by a rigorous education from two top-notch colleges, Colby College and The London School of Economics where I majored in both Mathematics and Economics. I scored 2260 on the SAT.
I am excited to work with you and I am committed to helping you succeed. I look forward to hearing from you!
