About Deontae


Bio

Hello, I'm Deontae H. and I have graduated with a degree in Statistics and am interested in being a math tutor. As a student at Michigan State University, I often attended the Math & Stats Help Room so I could explain how I approached problems and of course to see if those approaches were right or wrong.

Hello, I'm Deontae H. and I have graduated with a degree in Statistics and am interested in being a math tutor. As a student at Michigan State University, I often attended the Math & Stats Help Room so I could explain how I approached problems and of course to see if those approaches were right or wrong. After attending the help room, I would then hang out with fellow classmates and if they needed help, I would be able to explain the solution to them in layman's terms. I have taken classes from Intermediate Algebra up to Differential Equations in my math coursework and from Introduction to Stats up to Capstone in Statistics, so I would say I specialize in mathematics/statistics.

The way I like to approach tutoring is to at ask questions to a student to see where they are falling short. I then like to break it down in layman's terms, be it rather in a real world, logical way or by showing them examples of the same type of problem and illustrate to them the theme of the topic. For example, I tutored someone a couple of weeks ago on probabilities dealing with normal distributions and I had to ask her what each inequality symbol represented, and then I had her draw the bell shaped curve & had her tell me shade in the region the question asked about. I like to tutor people by either meeting up with them in person or helping them over Zoom. After the tutoring sessions, I like to check up on them to see how they do in their respective courses. I often charge for tutoring sessions, though.

My main objective as a tutor is to get students away from rote learning. I say that because I was once a rote learner, and being able to remember formulas mean nothing if you don't know how to use them. I am available all weekend and after 5pm during the weekdays.

Right on time!

Deontae came to the rescue to help my son out with a statistics exam at the last minute. We appreciate his help and my son felt confident going into his exam. Deonte was prompt and efficient! Great job.

Tutored my son

Deontae helped my son learn techniques that helped him better understand statistics. After 2 sessions, my son had a much better understanding. My son really enjoys his sessions with Deontae.

Teisha, 4 lessons with Deontae

Very Helpful!

My son (16- AP Statistics Student) has been working with Deontae for several weeks now. At first, my son was hesitant to work with a stranger. Deontae has such a kind and easy going way to his teaching that my son was quickly put at ease. My son's grade has moved from a D to an A in class, too! My son says that Deontae is helping it all "make sense". We both appreciate you, Deontae!

Conceptualization first, Method Second

Deontae helped me understand what I was learning first before we went into the "how's" of the material. Statistics is one of my hardest subjects and he helped me learn how to use basic R commands to make it so much easier!

Jessica, 6 lessons with Deontae

Patient Tutor!

Deontae is a great tutor! He makes sure I understand concepts before moving on to new items. He is great at finding multiple ways to explain difficult topics and this has been a lifesaver for me. Would highly recommend him for Statistics tutoring!

Courtney, 7 lessons with Deontae

Excellent tutor and really has a great concept of breaking down problems

Great tutor and very patient. I definitely will recommend him to anyone I know. He will draw out the problem and have you understand the concepts he’s telling you.

Sam, 1 lesson with Deontae

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Yes, my session with Deontae was very helpful and I felt like I was better able to digest the information. He was very patient with me and increased my level of understanding in statistics. I left the session feeling more confident in the statistical abilities.
