##### About Leo

I am a college student pursuing a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering. In my first year after being out of school for the better part of a decade, I achieved a GPA of 3.35 with a grade of A in both College Algebra and Trigonometry. I am currently in the second year of my five-year plan and have achieved a B in both Calculus I and Physics for Engineers I.

My tutoring experience has been limited to close friends and family but it has been effective. One of my friends whom I worked with is a single mother of two with a full-time job and 4 classes. She had been out of school for over a decade and had always found math difficult. She primarily credits me with her achieving an A- in her remedial maths course. Another is a 26-year-old who works full-time and had never been to college. Throughout high school, the highest grade she achieved in a math course was a C. I helped her review and prepare for the maths section of her college's placement exam and she was able to test into College Algebra. A third student, my cousin, had recently graduated high school and had tested into remedial maths her freshman year due to the difficulties she also has with maths. She left that course with an A.

I have found the lecture method of teaching found in conventional schooling to be largely counterproductive for most students when it comes to subjects such as mathematics. For myself, I had to develop a means of intuiting and physically conceptualizing most of the material I came across; I couldn't grasp maths as an arrangement of numbers and symbols with their own syntax and semantics (a unique language, so to speak) and instead had to discover a means of understanding the symbols and formulae as interactions between physical objects. I use this same method when helping others approach this content and, in my experience, it has been successful in helping them develop the same intuitive understanding of the material that I have developed.

If you or your child are struggling, I believe I can help. Please feel free to discuss with me what difficulties you're having and we'll work through it together.
