About Hediye


Bio

I have a PhD in mathematics and a BS in engineering with over 10 years of classroom teaching experience. I taught statistics and calculus at the University of Maryland. Now, I teach at local colleges. I have been tutoring for 25 years. Although I am an expert in mathematics with an extensive and excellent education, my real value as a tutor stems from my natural patience and ability to use Socratic questions to enhance learning.

I have a PhD in mathematics and a BS in engineering with over 10 years of classroom teaching experience. I taught statistics and calculus at the University of Maryland. Now, I teach at local colleges. I have been tutoring for 25 years. Although I am an expert in mathematics with an extensive and excellent education, my real value as a tutor stems from my natural patience and ability to use Socratic questions to enhance learning. My students all say that I put them at ease and that makes them feel free to learn. I clarify information using a variety methods and explanations. My goal is to use different tools to help students learn and retain the material that I am tutoring.

Some of my students have described my tutoring as: “Hediye is truly an incredible tutor and teacher… very patient and supportive.”, “…identified the most essential elements and formulas for me…”, “She is very patient and understanding.”, “…didn’t waste time”, “Hediye helps simplify concepts to make them more understandable.” Please feel free to read my reviews.

I am the first child in my large extended family to graduate from middle school. From there, I was able to progress all the way to achieving a PhD in mathematics. This inspired many of my family members, including siblings and cousins to follow in my footsteps and also complete college degrees. My son is a doctor in the army, and also has a degree in Biochemical engineering. My daughter graduated from UC Berkeley with an Energy Engineering degree. Now that my children do not need my academic assistance, I am able to share my expertise with other children and adults.

If you feel ready to make your next advancement in really understanding math challenges, I am here and ready to help you. If you want to avoid wasted time by receiving expert help, I am the tutor for you.

Knowledgeable and able to explain

My daughter said Hediye was knowledgeable and great at explaining the concepts. I will continue to use her and she has my recommendations for anyone that is looking for a tutor for math related subjects. My daughter did well on her test the next day. Not sure if I have used 160 characters but this is all I have to say

Detailed, professional & helpful

Hediye is patient and so knowledgeable regarding math and biostatistics. She has helped me understand nuanced details in my assignments, particularly in refining my calculations. I have worked with Hediye weekly all semester, and she has helped me succeed in my graduate class. Thank you, Hediye!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Dr. Gun is an experienced and accomplished instructor. She is very clear in her presentation and instruction. Our son appreciates her preparation and directness. Great for teaching counting and probability!

Mark, 12 lessons with Hediye

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

She tried to teach, how to calculate the standard deviation. She tried to help me. She is very good. We did not find the right answer but kept on trying. She was patient and polite. She was on time. She communicated via e mail very well. I was satisfied with her.

Arvind, 1 lesson with Hediye

Awesome tutor, patient and adjusts pace as needed

My daughter has been working with Hediye for a few months now, and we are very pleased with the results. Hediye is great about adjusting the pace of the lessons to make sure my daughter understands the material, but quick enough to cover a lot of problems in each session. Highly recommended!

William, 46 lessons with Hediye
