Bio

To my dear Clients,

My name is Wabi , but I prefer to be called Wabimasabi. I am originally from the D.R Congo, Africa. I attended a Suisse School where I received a solid background in french. I came into the USA in 2007 with neither the ability to communicate in English nor the knowledge of any English vocabulary. This was two years before I attended college.

To my dear Clients,

My name is Wabi , but I prefer to be called Wabimasabi. I am originally from the D.R Congo, Africa. I attended a Suisse School where I received a solid background in french. I came into the USA in 2007 with neither the ability to communicate in English nor the knowledge of any English vocabulary. This was two years before I attended college. I hope you can picture the pressure I faced to master English if I wanted to attend college. I was fortunate to attend a good high school mainly because of my math abilities were higher than average and that had put me into the honors program. The challenge remained firm as I was racing against time to learn English. Through a series of ESOL and personal learning, I overcame this challenge and not only that I received a B average in English, I passed the SAT English section as well.
Why is this important? It's important because I believe that the best teachers are those who had undergone difficult situations and have learned from these experiences. They have figured strategies and methodologies which worked or not; and thus, are curious to implement those methodologies onto their students so that they may reap the rewards thereafter.

As a Wilbur cross student, I captained the school math during the statewide competition for the CT math competition. My skills in math were acknowledged by the mathematics department that I was chosen to participate in the Yale 2008 Summer School Select for Bright Student in Greater New Haven to take calculus 1 and 2. I was also equally competent in french as I almost maxed out on the french SAT subject test; and also I won the CT 2009 French Poetry Contest For Native Speakers.

Even though I am not certified for both mathematics and french, I believe my journey in my America makes a a great teacher because I had to adapt and learn a new system both linguistically and operationally within a time constraint. My understanding of Algebra I and Calculus, in addition, my native ability to communicate in French gives me the confidence to say to you that I am the best you will find as a tutor for the specified subjects. As a native french speaker, I have held conversations with many people of different french level. These interactions allowed to develop better ways to relate with non- native speaker in matters of speaking and grammar. I can use my experience of learning a new language as my expertise in terms of teaching approach. As far as one on one mentoring, I have been a private soccer coach for over 5 years where I am currently the leading soccer coach in CT. I am certain that I can successfully apply the coaching techniques that made me successful as a private coach to the tutoring skills of a successful private tutor.

For those interested in Excel and R lessons, I have a bachelor degree in finance and economics. As part of my professional development, I have done three internships where I was exposed to a lot of Excel that I went from a beginner to an advanced user. I am currently taking non-degree graduate classes in quantitative finance where there's a great load of lab assignments done in R. I have become an a great user of R. Below are the highlight of my internships were I had to use Excel:
As an intern at FDM, an IT consulting company, I learned SQL, UNIX, Excel and R in order to developed my data manipulation skill. As a Junior Data Analyst at UC Berkeley, I worked with the dean of public health with multiple quantitative projects on Excel. As a Collection Analyst at Peco Energy,
I manipulated data from a SQL data server to Excel then performed data analysis for the collection department.

Lastly, I have business background; therefore, you can expect a professional service and conduct on my part. I am fairly new in this website; thus I encourage you to book sessions with me. Your first session is backed with a guarantee 50% money back if you don't think I match your expectations. Remember it's time to get wiser with me!
