"I am a senior majoring in civil engineering and minoring in mathematics. I have always enjoyed helping family or other students to learn and appreciate math which is why I chose to be become a tutor. I have been a tutor at the City College of New York's SEEK Department for over a year in which time I have tutored the entire calculus sequence and civil engineering courses also. When I help students understand a topic they struggled with for days or even weeks it gives me a great deal of satisfaction knowing that I was part of the learning process. I believe learning is more than just about learning to solve specific problems it's about understanding why it's solved in that way and why it works.

Math can be a challenging topic for most students but finding an individualized approach for each student to learn is the most effective learning method. While I am open to all students, the best ones I've worked with and had the greatest potential to grow are those that truly desire to improve themselves. In my year of tutoring I have helped many students pass either Algebra, Precalculus, Calculus or Engineering classes at a college level. Some of these students have had to repeat the course before having tutoring sessions with me and most have expressed their gratitude towards me for finding an approach to teaching that works for them. I would like to make the most of each session which is why I always welcome any resources or suggestions from students or parents. I am very easy to contact and always provide a quick response. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a session." less...
