Yes, I can make math easy, simple, fun, and allow students to learn by themselves giving them the confidence to solve any math question. I have been tutoring, mentoring, and teaching Integrated Math I, II, & III, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, College Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, Calculus, Statistics, and Physics for 20 years.
I taught College Algebra, Trigonometry, Precalculus Calculus, Calculus, and Introduction of Mechanical engineering at the US Air Force Academy Prep School in Colorado Springs CO.
Currently, I am teaching multiple mathematics courses at Motlow State Community College and Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. I am also tutoring ACT, SAT, AFQT, ASVAB, Praxis, Integrated Math I, II, & II, Algebra I & II, AP calculus, AP Statistics, Calculus I, II, & III, Statistics, Probability, Differential Equation, Linear Algebra, and Advanced Mathematics Courses. Most of my Students are from Metro Nashville public high schools, local colleges and universities students, and online across the nation.
As a tutor/mentor, I guide the students through solving math problems using a problem-solving based on teaching style to help students learn and understand math concepts, therefore, all my students can learn to handle any challenge question on their own in the near future. I use effective practices, strategies and resources to inspire and enrich each of my student's learning. I usually use different learning styles such as workbooks, visual aid computers, hands-on activities like lab, student-centered discussions as learning-centered, one-on-one tutoring and small-group tutoring.
Note: Let me work with a student who is trying to achieve college credits in AP Calculus, Statistics, and Physics. Let me work with a student who thinks that Calculus is Greek language or something difficult. Let me work with student who has hated math, to challenge them and change their attitude towards math. My tutoring styles are all about learning focus and have fun with math as playing game. After I meet new student, our game is all about solving puzzles, solving math questions is like playing a game, if we find a right solution; we win, if not keep playing, challenging ourselves until we solve it.
My teaching philosophy: Setting a good example; helping and encouraging students to ask any question to help them grow; creating an environment to engage, motivate, and make them more competitive; implementing a learning focus state where and how the mathematics apply in the decision making, engineering, and any real-life situation by guiding them to construct their own way of creating and solving any problem without breaking any math rule

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I have taken two Differential Equations courses and one Applied Mathematics using Differential Equation to earn my Applied Mathematics Degree. Since then, I have been tutoring some students. It is very critical to learn the concepts of Differential Equation and know how to use it and when to use it. Many laws leading natural phenomena are equations involving rates at which derivatives. Basically, Equations containing derivatives are differential equations.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I took multiple Linear Algebra courses to earn my Applied Mathematics degree. Linear Algebra was one of my specialties while studying. Since then, I have been tutoring undergraduate and graduate level Linear algebra courses. Linear algebra is very rich subject and central to both pure and applied mathematics, concerning vector spaces, often finite or infinite dimensional, as well as Linear Mappings between such spaces.

GED

I have a lot of experiences preparing students for the GED test. I will always start from the basic math as an assessment and then focus on each individual weakest (blind spot). My approach is tailored to each individual math level. I had some students who open the GED book with me in the first time, and I had some other students almost ready to take the exam. Regardless of your current math level, you will be well prepared to take the exam with some tutoring sessions. GED is separated into four major categories: data, statistics, and probability; algebra, functions, and patterns; number sense and operations; and measurement and geometry. I usually cover each category and have some practices to master each area and then take mix practice at the end.

AFOQT

I took the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) and I have been mentoring and assisting numerous students in preparing for standard tests including AFOQT and Naval Officer qualifying test which is the Aviation Selection Test Batteries (ASTB). The AFOQT is a standardized test, similar to the SAT or any other standardized test. The main difference from other tests is that the AFOQT has many additional sections beyond Verbal and Quantitative. My experience tutoring AFOQT, ASTB, ASVAB, SAT, and ACT enable me to tutor the AFOQT successfully. My strategies for all standard tests: Familiarize yourself with the test structure and contents, use the right or current study guides, take a short practice test, study each content individually, take a short practice test again, identify your weakest areas in order to give more attention and study more for those areas, and then, last not least, practice, practice, and practice.

I passed the Mathematics Content Knowledge Praxis II exam with target score for ETS Recognition of Excellence. Since then, I prepared five students; all of them passed with good grade. Currently, I am tutoring and teaching all of the Praxis related concepts daily. The main contents of Praxis II are Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Statistics/probability, Matrices, Discrete, and Calculus. It is my favorite subject and enjoy meeting, preparing, and speaking math languages with the future Mathematics teachers, and most important bring more math teachers to the school system.

Bruce, 9 lessons with Ayanaw

Tutor with a passion for math

Mr. Ayanaw is teaching my 9th grade son in Algebra 1 and 2 twice a week. My son was very stress because he was very sick which cause him to get behind in math and he just couldn't understand the way his current teacher was teaching him. Mr. Ayanaw found a way for my son to understand better.

Sharika, 10 lessons with Ayanaw

great tutor

Knowledgeable and patient, explains lesson thoroughly. Highly recommended! I needed a tutor for my son and the response was quick and the lesson was excellent

Ryan, 1 lesson with Ayanaw

Great teacher, helps understand concepts!

Ayanaw helped me with my calculus homework I was struggling with for college, and I left the session with a much better understanding of a topic that I previously could barely apply

Sarina, 2 lessons with Ayanaw

Entering into college after recently retiring

My tutoring introduce math back into my life after so many years of not studying. The level that he introduced was very clear, attainable, and exciting. Looking forward to learn math with Ayanawa and reaching my goal. Received some homework and made aware of it's importance. Thank you Mr Ayanawa

Beverly, 1 lesson with Ayanaw

Algebra Math Project

Mr. Ayanaw worked with my son to complete an algebra math project. He helped my son to work through each problem on the game board and to gain more knowledge/ understanding as each problem became more complex. Mr. Ayanaw is very knowledge and wants to see the students he works with become more successful. My son did a great job on his project!

Jeremiah, 20 lessons with Ayanaw

Patient and knowledgable.

My daughter started her tutoring session with dread. She has been struggling for a long time with all aspects of math. By the end of the session, she had a smile on her face and the realization that she can actually do this. She's actually looking forward to her next tutoring session!
