About Yara

I am currently working as a full time engineer. I have graduated from Cooper Union with my undergraduate degree in civil engineering in 2014 and will graduate with my aster's degree in May of 2016. I have tutored throughout high school, both high school students and a couple of middle school kids. I tutored a class of ten high school students in SAT Math for five weeks. On average, the students increased their math score by at least 120 points by the end of the summer. I have loved math since I was about nine so I am always trying to find new ways to solve problems. This helps a lot when I'm tutoring and the typical method doesn't work. Drawing pictures, even though I am not a great artist, and using physical objects seems to be the method that works best with students who don't enjoy math. I have been tutoring trigonometry for the past two years and algebra for about one year. I am an overall friendly person and have experience traveling with public transportation for about six years. I also have a car so I am able to drive for places that aren't convenient to get to by train. I am currently working as a full time engineer.
