About Shelvin


Bio

I am an experienced tutor who has been tutoring for well over three years, both privately and at my institution, over a variety of math related subjects and age groups. I've also had the great pleasure of being able to aide a number of college professors in reintroducing class material to groups of 10 to 15 college students.

I am an experienced tutor who has been tutoring for well over three years, both privately and at my institution, over a variety of math related subjects and age groups. I've also had the great pleasure of being able to aide a number of college professors in reintroducing class material to groups of 10 to 15 college students. I am currently a Senior attending UC Berkeley as an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science major. I have a 3.9 GPA, I have never received anything lower than an A in any math or science course, and I am a member of several distinguished honor societies, including PTK and PTB. My passion for tutoring stems from the moments of brilliance I see from those who I tutor. There is something unique about guiding someone through a challenging problem and being able to see that through guidance and patience, they now have perspective on a concept that may initially have seemed foreign.

My approach in being able to assist you is unique and straightforward. I pride myself on being patient and being able to give you an insight into the bigger picture of what you are actually studying. That is, I consider Math and its relating subjects, such as Physics, Chemistry, and Computer Science to be the true language of our universe, and as such, I treat it with the respect it deserves at all levels. This entails that I am prepared to not only answer the "how", but also the "why", which I firmly believe is critical to success in these areas.

Ultimately, as a current student, I am fully aware of the challenges and expectations associated with the modern education system. It will be my goal to ensure that you will achieve success in your studies. Persistence is just as important as intelligence :)

Very knowledgeable

Shelvin was able to connect effectively with my son, his tutoring skill and style matched well with my teenage son. Shelvin is also flexible and easy to work with and always quick to respond to my emails.

Very Knowledgeable

My daughter has the first lesson with Shelvin in Pre-Calculys. Shelvin is very knowledgeable. He showed my daughter tricks to find domain and range that she has never learned from her teacher. We will continue lessons with him for sure.
