I a mechanical engineering graduate at Stony Brook University. My key quality as a tutor aside for the passion I have for my subjects is definitely my patience with students. I feel that tutoring is not just instruction, but a means of communication with students.

From my years of tutoring I have come to learn that misunderstanding of subject concepts come not from the students own lack of understanding, but rather from lack of proper interpretation of students questions. Taking the time to understand the students area of difficulty and approaching it in the manner the student feels comfortable works very well in allowing students to see why their particular way of thinking may not be correct, rather than telling them what the right method or answer is.

I love to tutor Physics as well as many areas of Mathematics and engineering courses. I am definitely qualified to tutor these subjects because above the understanding and comprehension that I have demonstrated in these courses in my years as a student, I have a great passion and love for the disciplines. Having been a tutor as well as a student at my previous college, LaGuardia CC, I am well aware of the difficulties that students face in these subjects, and I sympathize with them because I have experienced these same difficulties as well. I want to help my students not just to excel in these subject areas, but to enjoy them. If there is one thing I have learned over the years, it is that the only way to excel in your work is to enjoy your work.

Math is an abstract subject! My students have always commented that what helps them the most when I tutor them in math is my ability to relate what they are learning to everyday real world scenarios. This lessens the abstractness of the math itself and makes it a lot easier to understand.

I have tutored physics in various levels ranging from the high school level to college level, and even worked with adults who study the subject in their free time. Whether you are learning projectile motion, studying waves, or deal

Professional and patient tutor!

My son was very pleased with how Sebastian broke everything down and explained everything to him in a manner which he good understand and relate. This is is extremely important when you are looking for a tutor.

Keri, 8 lessons with Sebastian

extremely knowledgeable and patient

We worked on some physics problems and he was absolutely amazing. When I was not understanding something, he was extremely patient in explaining. I will definitely continue lessons with Sebastian!
