About Makunda


Bio

Tutoring has been my "hobby" ever since high school. I would tutor my classmates and friends. I went to college in Europe (Belgium) where I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry. I worked as a private tutor in Math and the Sciences to complement my scholarship. I eventually ended up in New york for my Masters. There I created private tutoring network. Many times callers were friends or relatives of students I tutored in the past.

Tutoring has been my "hobby" ever since high school. I would tutor my classmates and friends. I went to college in Europe (Belgium) where I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry. I worked as a private tutor in Math and the Sciences to complement my scholarship. I eventually ended up in New york for my Masters. There I created private tutoring network. Many times callers were friends or relatives of students I tutored in the past.
My tutoring approach is as follows:
At the first encounter I ask specific questions that help understand areas of difficulty. I always give a summary of what we'll be doing and a review at the end of session. I strongly encourage students to ask questions as we go on, and not move on unless they understand the previous.

As stated above my tutoring experience has been built on the tracks of my academic pursuits. Today I still enjoy doing it on the tracks of my professional life given my occupation provides for a lot of flexibility.

A good tutor connects with the student on two levels: personal and intellectual. His personality should convey a message of help, not that of "control". He should set himself at the intellectual level of the student by using a language and methods that the student easily comprehends.That is what you will experience by yourself.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Basic operations are key to math understanding. With innovative methods, I help you understand your own way. Next in importance after basic operations is the ability to factor expressions and solve equations, specially if they involve fractions.To top it all I will help you avoid mistakes involving sign assignments (+, -).
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is the road to calculus. It is very close to Pre-Calculus.I teach how to organize ideas and the multiple formulas that this course requires. Expressions and equations are more elaborate than in Algebra1. There is a healthy mix with Geometry and Trigonometry. In order to help you not to be discouraged by the abundance of materials, I help you grasp key concepts and shortcuts without heavy memorizing.

A Patient, Kind and Knowledgeable Tutor

Makunda went over a few General Physics 2 topics with me such as Electric Circuits, Magnetism and Induction. He answered all of my questions eloquently and made sure I understood the concepts explicitly. I recommend him 100%! I will be sure to ace my exam in the next few days.

Shanique, 1 lesson with Makunda

Knowledgeable and patient

My son is taking AP Chemistry and Mr. Makunda's tutoring has increased my son's confidents. My son is well prepared to tackle AP Chemistry because of Mr. Makunda. He is always on time for each tutoring session.

Tanya, 15 lessons with Makunda

incredibly thorough and effective

He came over and reviewed a topic that my professor spent weeks doing in class in about two hours. There was no rush or feeling that we were going too fast he was just very thorough and made me understand the material very well!

Maciej, 3 lessons with Makunda

Good First Meeting

Very good first meeting. Makunda, it seems might be a perfect fit for my son. He was prompt arriving about 15 minutes before the session. Once at my home, he got straight to the point. He wasted no time. I don't know if this was is his style or if he perceived that this style would work for my son but his style of teaching was firm and straight to the point. If I am paying for private tutoring, I want someone to get straight to the point with my son. Might be a perfect fit but only time will confirm this.

Venessa , 9 lessons with Makunda

Excellent Tutor

So far Mr. Makunda has been excellent for my daughter. He's been a good fit. I have witnessed improvement in my daughters work over the short time that he has worked with her. Mr. Makunda gets 5/5 stars from me, and high recommendations; for any parent looking for a tutor who is well rounded, knowledgeable about the subject matter, he's the one.

Shada, 70 lessons with Makunda

So lucky to have Makunda as a tutor!

Makunda has been the chemistry tutor of my daughter for the past year. I can't say how a great tutor he is. May daughter is doing the International Baccalaureate, which is a high level college course and Makunda has been able to help her in Chemistry. Her grades have increased and she is a more confident student. Makunda is patient, available and know how to teach. We highly recommend him.

Myriam, 24 lessons with Makunda

The best math tutor

Makunda is the best tutor I've ever had! He explains complex ideas clearly, he is very patient and professional. I would never have passed precalculus without him!

Corinne, 4 lessons with Makunda

Great Tutor

Makunda was very punctual. His knowledge of the subject (chemistry) was very impressive. He was able to explain it to my daughter in great details. She gave him two thumbs up for her first lesson with him.
