"My name is Meekail Z.! I'm a PhD student at UGA working on machine learning. Currently I'm a lead PhD student on an NSF funded biomedical image analysis machine learning project. My undergraduate degree was a double major in math and computer science. I started tutoring in high school when a few friends were really struggling in a class that I loved. I wanted them to be able to enjoy it and not have to stress out about it, so I started going over the material with them. After that, I regularly tutored at our local library and realized that I absolutely love teaching! The best feeling in the world is that "Ah ha!" moment when everything just clicks, but the second best is helping someone else reach that feeling. For some people it happens quickly, for others it takes a bit of effort, but the payoff is always worth it. Being able to help guide people to that moment where everything falls into place and all the hard work ends up being worth it is an absolute joy, and the main reason why I continue to tutor today.

I learned very early on that everybody -- and I mean *everybody* -- learns differently. I love working with people to figure out the best way to teach them the material they need. I've consistently found that even those who struggle the most can become top-performers if the problem is simply presented in a way that makes more sense to them. I want to ensure that my students end a session with me as better mathematicians than when they began. You'll learn the specific material that you need, but most importantly you'll learn techniques which will prepare you for all sorts of content.

I have always had an intense interest in math and pursued it as a hobby outside of school. When I was nineteen, I was given permission to take graduate-level math courses and excelled in them. I have experience teaching math topics ranging from middle-school geometry to college multi-variable mathematics. At UGA, I was an undergraduate grader for what is widely regarded as the most difficult set of undergraduate math classes" less...
