About Simba

I'm currently in my sophomore year of college studying Applied Math and Statistics at Stony Brook University. Since I was young, math has always been a subject that I understood fairly. However, it was not until the 9th grade that I truly developed a passion for it. My 9th grade math teacher taught in a way that inspired me, and my class, to take the subject seriously. His teachings allowed me to understand the inner workings of math and comprehend how things worked. This assisted me in helping my peers and friends when they struggled to understand concepts which lead to me wanting to become a tutor.

After getting accustomed to Stony Brook, I participated in a summer program as a TA (Teaching Assistant), tutor and mentor. This program truly showed me the patience and dedication I have to be a tutor.

I worked alongside my mentees and was their guardian, taking care of them while also educating them in topics like math and physics. CSTEP has allowed me to see the love I have for tutoring and I hope you will allow me to tutor you.

I am able to work at any pace that a student would feel comfortable at. Also I work with my student until they feel fully confident with the material.

My whole purpose in becoming a tutor is to help you improve your skills in math. I hope you will allow me to help you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
