Now, I teach at at local colleges. I have been doing paid and unpaid tutoring for 25 years now. My son became a doctor in the army, he also has a degree in Biochemical engineering.

I have a PhD in mathematics and a BS in engineering. I have over 10 years of classroom experience, I taught statistics and calculus at University of Maryland before having my kids. Now, I teach at at local colleges. I have been doing paid and unpaid tutoring for 25 years now. My son became a doctor in the army, he also has a degree in Biochemical engineering. My daughter graduated from UC Berkeley Energy Engineering. I always volunteered at my children's schools. Now that my children do not need me as much as before; I try to help other children and young adults more.

I am quite knowledgeable because of my great education. However, my real value stems from my natural patience. My students all say that I put them at ease and that makes them feel free to learn. I am also able to explain the same thing in many different ways, or find different tools to help them learn and retain the material.

I am the first child in my large extended family to graduate from middle school, and I was able to go all the way to get a college degree and then a PhD. After I did, almost all of my siblings and cousins graduated from college and I was always there to help them--until I had to move to US to get my doctorate. However, to this day, they say that I not only helped them to learn, I inspired them.

After school play dates at our house always started with them doing their homework after a nutritious snack. This always surprised the playmates' parents, they could not believe that the homework was finished or at least halfway done when they came to pick up their children. I helped them to learn the material by turning it into some kind of game and then watched them do their homework. When one of them made a mistake I helped them to figure out their mistake and then correct it by themselves. I love teaching and I hope to be with the kids for many many years.

Amazing

She helped me out with statistics. Explained everything to me and made sure I understood the material. I went from not understanding the material at all to being able to solve problems with ease. Overall she is a great tutor and I highly recommend.

Josh, 2 lessons with Hediye

Really great!

Hediye had some great tools and tips to help me. She was so patient with me, and I am excited to continue with her!

Alicia, 3 lessons with Hediye

Knowledgeable and patient

Worked on pacing for standardized testing in math. Worked through many practice problems for efficiency. Liked how I was shown faster ways for processing math problems.

Erick, 2 lessons with Hediye

The best tutor I've ever had

Hediye is seriously the best tutor I have ever had. She responds very quickly, and is very flexible in accommodating a student's schedule and needs. As a humanities major, math does not come naturally to me, and I was struggling with college-level statistics. The way Hediye explained the concepts to me was so simple and easy to comprehend that I ended with an A in the class, and this is truly all thanks to her expertise and quick tips and tricks. She worked hard in understanding the nuances of my professor and our textbook and was very quick to adapt to the types of questions in my class. For the few questions we did not understand right away, she went out of her way to think about the problems on her own time and returned the next session with a new way to approach it, which demonstrates that Hediye truly cares about her students and the material and that she is not simply concerned with clocking in and out. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, Hediye is very patient. I've often dealt with tutors in the past who have made me feel silly or stupid for not knowing how to tackle a problem or what formula to use, and this has often turned me "off" from the tutor and even the subject. This was never the case with Hediye. She has a very caring and nurturing nature, but do not mistake this for extreme softness -- she knows her stuff, and while she does take the time out to get to know a little bit about you and your learning style, it was never in lieu of serious academic time. Truly the best tutor I've ever had, and I highly recommend her without reservation. I will miss our sessions!

Amisha, 7 lessons with Hediye

Great tutor

Hediye has helped to guide me with my statistics homework and explain the problems and how to get to the solution. She is very patient and understanding. I feel better about my stat class because of her help.

Michele, 8 lessons with Hediye

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Hediye showed me how to use excel for graphing, how to read graphs using z-score, and so much more in reference to the central tendency. I am greatful for her assistance for I had gotten a B+.

Donyelle, 3 lessons with Hediye

Very patient

She is very patient and always gave me extra minutes for our lessons. I really appreciate for that. Hediye not only helped me by showing how to solve the problems but also taught me how to solve problems quickly. Thank you for tutoring...

Nilgun, 20 lessons with Hediye

patient teacher

I liked her style, went over questions and didn’t waste time. But she cut the lesson short! Know your timing and give yourself some leeway as a tutor!

Brad, 5 lessons with Hediye
Tutor responded:

I am sorry that you felt that way, however, the scheduled lesson was 60 minutes, and I had to leave after 67 minutes as you can see from the recorded video-I certainly did not cut it short. I always try to give leeway, it is harder to do during finals week-which this week is.

Very patient tutor

Hediye has been very patient with me as I have been out of the classroom for 30 years. She even provided me with tips to become reacquainted with my TI-84 Plus calculator.
