About Tensae

I have been employed as a tutor at Grace Church School - High School Division for two years and in college (I went to Cooper Union) I was a tutor for the Math Department. Students told me that a session with me gave them the confidence and knowledge to tackle problems on an exam or a homework. Knowing that I had that impact on a person's life, and knowing that I helped a person in a meaningful way - that's what tutoring is all about for me. For me, to help someone gain an understanding of a subject where previously there was none - I consider that one of the greatest joys in my life. That's why I tutor.

Math minor from Cooper Union, Bronx Science graduate

For me to help someone gain an understanding of a subject where previously there was none - I consider that one of the greatest joys in my life. Why? It means that I did my part to make the world a better place - I made an impact on someone's life. When you explain to someone the Doppler effect because that firetruck is zooming down the street, you will remember that I told you the equation for a moving source and stationary observer. When you take your linear algebra final and your asked to find the eigenvalues of a singular matrix, you will know what to do.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

As an engineer by trade, it is required that I have a sharp set of algebra skills. Minoring in mathematics gave me a deeper understanding of math.

On Math B, I got a 99; on Math A, I got a 99.

Algebra 2

A long time ago, I was in high school and took something called the Math B regents and scored 98/100. I was trained as an engineer, so a lot of what I did required the skills learned in algebra 2 and trigonometry at the least.

American History

A long time ago, I got a 95 on the U.S. History Regents. And I have kept up my interest in American history by reading and watching things on PBS.

Calculus

My training as an engineer provided me with many opportunities to practice calculus. As a result, I am capable of solving many problems. As a tutor at Grace Church and Cooper, it was my job to tutor students in calculus, and by the end of it, they understood calculus well enough to perform well on their exams.

Chemistry

When I was in high school at Bronx Science, I took AP Chemistry and got a 5 on that exam. I then went to Cooper Union and got an A in almost every chemistry class I ever took which included Physical Chemistry and General Chemistry.

Discrete Math

I have a math minor from The Cooper Union. One of the classes I took to get the math minor was Discrete Math. I received an A in Discrete Math, and I also received a B in Data Structures and Algorithms, a related subject.

Elementary Math

I work well with kids usually. Having grown up on watching public television, I am pretty good at explaining math in a rudimentary way.

Geography

I got a 98 on the regents in global history and geography.

Geometry

I was first exposed to geometry in my freshman year of high school, where I did incredibly well in the class (98 average). From that point on I was tutoring in geometry, and I have helped many students understand the nuances and theorems of geometry.

Java

I can tutor in any programming language. My experience with Java comes from a class I took in college on programing languages.

Macroeconomics

I took AP microeconomics and AP macroeconomics in high school and got a 5 on both of these exams. In college, I took Microeconomics, an upper level microeconomics class.

Microeconomics

I took AP microeconomics and AP macroeconomics in high school and got a 5 on both of these exams. In college, I took Microeconomics, an upper level microeconomics class.

Physics

I went to Bronx Science, and got a 99 in my Physics class and a 98 on the regents. I took AP Physics B and AP Physics C, both Mechanics and E & M. In college, at the Cooper Union, I took a number of physics classes in my training as an engineer.

I have tutored in physics at Grace Church and have helped many students improve their grades and develop an understanding of physics.

Prealgebra

I graduated from Bronx Science before Common Core was instituted. However, I have an in depth understanding of algebra and prealgebra despite that.

Precalculus

When I was in high school, I placed out of precalculus because I learned enough of it in algebra and trigonometry and studied it on my own. I have been tutoring precalculus at Grace for the past two years.

Probability

I have an extensive background in probability and statistics, which has its roots in my AP Statistics class at Bronx Science. In college, I took a number of classes in probability, most notably - Probability Models and Stochastic Processes.

SAT Reading

When I took the SAT in high school, I got a 710 on the reading and an 800 on the math.

I also graduated from The Cooper Union and as a result my reading and math skills are sharp.

Trigonometry

A long time ago, I took the Math B regents and scored a 98/100. I have tutored in trig ever since and have official experience tutoring in trig at Grace Church.
