About Mendy

I have been tutoring since I was in high school (2007). As someone who understands the value of education, I love helping students understand concepts better and more efficiently complete their homework assignments. I especially enjoy tutoring standardized testing (SAT and ACT primarily) and mathematics. I like helping students see the logic in problems that they may find puzzling. The best feeling is to see students break down new problems with the skills that they have learned! My approach towards tutoring is very big picture and concept-based. I like to start by diagnosing any overarching problems that students may have and then building a solid foundation from the ground up until they can approach the concept correctly. I emphasize strategy rather than rote memorization and I will make sure that my students understand each concept before moving on. After students understand the concept, I usually assign homework or practice problems as reinforcement.

As a quick overview of my tutoring history, I started tutoring in high school (2007). In addition to peer tutoring in science and mathematics at school, I also taught piano, violin, English, and mathematics to middle school students in my neighborhood. In the summer of 2012, I became an official SAT/ACT for a testing prep company named Revolution Prep. I tutored 5 high school students and raised their SAT scores by 200 points on average. In terms of mathematics background, I have taken mathematics courses up to Multivariable Calculus. I will be graduating from Yale University with a double major in Economics and Psychology next week, so after I get back home to Michigan I would love to spend some time tutoring before I leave to work full-time in New York City. I am very flexible with timing from May 20th through May 27th and July 2nd through July 24th, 2015. It would be most convenient for students to come to my home, as I have a quiet office that we can use.
