About Syed

I am currently a college student, majoring in Business (Finance to be specific). As I had worked my way through middle school and high school, I found that I had often ended up helping my peers understand something. To me, the entire experience of helping others out and guiding them through a concept is quite amazing, which is why I truly do love to teach. Teaching, and I realize that this may sound cliche, is a two way road, in which both the teacher and the student end up learning something.

I have completed multiple math classes with stellar grades, which include the math classes given in high school as well as college Calculus and Finite Math. Over the course of these classes, I have helped multiple peers understand the material we were learning at the time, which not only helped them, but also strengthened my own understanding of the material. As such, I am well equipped with the knowledge needed to teach the earlier level math classes.

As a tutor, I will try to help out the student in any way possible, keeping in mind that everyone has their own pace and that everybody has different needs. I teach math, ranging anywhere from elementary math to algebra 1. It is very important to get these earlier math concepts down, because practically everything after algebra 1 will build on the things you have learned to that point. As such, my approach to teaching will either involve helping the student with whatever they are currently learning (in order to fortify their understanding of the concepts), or to help them with parts of their course that they don't understand. Of course, I am open and flexible to every students needs and requests. I would, however, request that the student provide the syllabus or agenda for the class so that I can prepare and better plan how to teach the student.

Feel free to contact me if you need help with your math classes, I can take a look at the student's syllabus or agenda and help him/her prepare for the class and clarify any questions the student may have.
