About Irvin

I have experience in mentoring fellow students in math as an Undergraduate Civil Engineering student at Purdue University, as a Master's of Regional Planning student at Cornell University and as a Master's of Civil Engineering student at the University of Illinois. I do not have any formal experience in math tutoring.

While mentoring, a quiet place was found where we would not be disturbed and the student was asked what was not understood. The student was told the material could be mastered. I would listen carefully to the questions and explanations of the student and then demonstrate a method of solving the problem. If there were questions, a patient answer was given. The student was asked to solve another problem. This process was repeated until the student understood the material or we both agreed to stop.

My trademark was patience. While I have no formal tutoring experience, the trials and tribulations that I went through in obtaining all of my education would be an excellent resource to use in teaching a student. I look forward to the challenges of being a successful math tutor.
