Bio

Hi! My name’s Ekow (pronounced ‘echo’) and I’m a 3rd year Yale student majoring in Computing & the Arts. In addition to having done about a year and a half of freelance math tutoring and student mentorship, I was employed at the Kumon Learning Center from June 2016 to May 2017 as a Math and Reading teaching assistant before graduating high school. Since starting college, I’ve been doing other on-campus work to expand my knowledge base and communication skills but have often been able to help...

Hi! My name’s Ekow (pronounced ‘echo’) and I’m a 3rd year Yale student majoring in Computing & the Arts. In addition to having done about a year and a half of freelance math tutoring and student mentorship, I was employed at the Kumon Learning Center from June 2016 to May 2017 as a Math and Reading teaching assistant before graduating high school. Since starting college, I’ve been doing other on-campus work to expand my knowledge base and communication skills but have often been able to help colleagues through difficult problems in math-based courses like Calculus of Functions of One Variable II. In terms of reading and writing, I’ve also had the privilege of taking advanced anthropology, religious studies, psychology, and ecology-based courses with dense but rich reading and writing material and even learning to write professional clinical research papers from the tutelage of Dr. Arielle Baskin-Sommers as well!

With all the above being said, I think the other part of what makes me stand out as a tutor is having entered a new field at the beginning of college that I had little to no previous experience in (Computer Science), I’ve also recently been in the shoes of someone trying to learn new and unfamiliar material and can be understanding and empathetic towards students who in their classes or studies might be in a similar position. I know especially with other subjects to focus on how frustrating and demoralizing tough roadblocks can be, but I’m fully prepared to be patient and do whatever is necessary to meet each student’s needs, whether that means diagrams, examples, analogies, or finding other resources to help clear up a difficult topic.

I can be a great math tutor especially with Algebra 1 & 2 because I’m familiar with not only the fundamentals and how they apply to other areas of math like Calculus and Linear Algebra but also their applications to other fields like Computer Science! A course I took recently at Yale called Mathematic Tools for Computer Science dealt with many of just these principle
