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.

Excellent tutor: Very thorough, patient
Hediye is truly an incredible tutor and teacher. I worked with her as I studied for the Math Praxis II (code 0061) exam. First, she is very patient and supportive. As I had not studied much of this material in depth for some time (years!), I felt really out of the loop with much of the material. So I greatly appreciated how Hediye was so patient with me. Second, Hediye seemed to have a good sense of what I would need to focus on in order to pass. Clearly knowing all material through and through is ideal, but re-gaining that knowledge in 4 weeks time is near impossible. So I found it super helpful that Hediye identified the most essential elements and formulas for me for each content area covered on the test. I really appreciated how she also explained both simple and high-level content areas. This was perfect for my preparation for the test. Third, Hediye is incredibly focused. I appreciated how she was great on an interpersonal level (warm, friendly) but also got right down to business. Every session that we had was highly focused. And we always got through so much material! When I worked with Hediye, I went in to each session with specific questions, and some ideas for what content I wanted to review with her. This really worked for me. She was happy to answer questions (and always did so in a very accessible way) and then we worked on Math problems together. As an educator, I think that the best teachers are those who the student wants to work hard for. I respect Hediye, so I worked really hard and did not want to disappoint! Like I said, she is a truly amazing tutor and teacher.Stephanie, 11 lessons with Hediye
Always a Big Help
Hediye works with my son, and he is getting excellent AP Calc grades. She is very responsive and also calming. He plans to have her help him practice for the AP exam. She helps students understand the math and also assists with building confidence.Mj, 14 lessons with Hediye
