"I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics. However, I would not say I gained all of my knowledge from homework alone. I learned many of the problem-solving techniques just by playing around with problems that I find interesting. For example, my friends and I would race each other on solving integrals from the Integration Bee: it was fun. I think it is important to let yourself explore concepts that you find interesting rather than just finishing your homework. That is where I really started to see the beauty in mathematics. When tutoring mathematics at the university, I would know how to check if answers are correct or not. Consequently, other tutors would come to me and ask if they were tutoring the concept correctly many times. When it comes to the mentioned subjects, I have a high level of confidence if the content is correct and have many ways of checking if needed. Ultimately though, I think it is way more important to know the process of getting the correct answer.

I can tutor subjects including algebra, trigonometry, calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations. I have been tutoring mathematics since the beginning of 2017, and I have seen many of the problems that students run into. I have also private tutored one person starting from calculus all the way to his engineering classes. The span of this time took 2 years and I was able to adapt my tutoring style to his learning style. Now, although I do not tutor engineering, he still likes to get advice from me whenever he needs help solving an equation.

I would recommend contacting me if you want a tutor that explains how the math works, gives a summary of a concept, or if you just need help finishing your homework." less...
