My name is Maks! I am a Junior Mechanical Engineering and Physics Major student. I have always enjoyed math and physics and applying what I learned into real life problems. Ever since I was young I have always been intrigued how mechanisms operate and the science behind them.
I have been helping others understand math all my life but my real tutoring experience began 2 years ago. It started by being a learning assistant for Calculus 2 at my local community college. I helped students understand concepts in class as well as held study sessions for those who needed extra help. The position pushed me take on challenging roles, which helped me grow as a tutor. This included organizing and running a 2 hour review session before any exam throughout the semester . During my study sessions I would have a brief and summarized explanation of the material and I would have problems so that both the students and I could work on them together on the spot. All students are different and they all not learn the same way so I am able to adapt to different learning styles. The root of my tutoring sessions are for students to really understand why we are doing what we are doing as well as the different way to approach it.
I have also worked at a local math tutoring center "Mathnasium" where I worked directly with groups of 4 to 10 students where I developed a customized learning plan for each student in that group. It is my belief that students need to understand the concepts more than learning formulas and just plug in numbers so I like to teach them how to apply math to real world situations and how this will be important in their everyday life.
I like to start by having a free 30 minute consultation where we can talk about current situation, struggles, learning styles and what the expected goals are.
I was that very student, sitting in the "needing help" chair. I still remember a lot of the daunting challenges I faced along with my peers, during that time. I am able to present the same material in different w
