I have 20 years' experience tutoring high school/college level mathematics. Most of my tutoring has been informal, but as a graduate student, I supervised my department's tutoring lab. Additionally, I have 10+ teaching all levels of math in a university setting.

Students need to feel comfortable with a tutor, so establishing a rapport with students is my primary objective, because goals beyond that otherwise can't be achieved. ...

...I believe in giving students the chance to recognize their own mistakes and correct them. This fosters a habit of paying attention to detail, checking their work, and becoming self-reliant in their study, which is the end goal. I am also conscious to emphasize the positive, affirm correct work, and not just point out where a student has failed or worked a problem incorrectly.

...However, I became an electrical engineer after graduated the University of Maryland in this country about 13 years ago and I always apply math to my engineering projects. I love my work, I love math, and I love teaching. When I was attending college, I was a math tutor and lots of students wanted me tutoring them because I think I had lots of teaching math experiences.

...My background is in engineering and business, so I use an applied math approach to teaching. I find knowing why the math is important goes a long way towards helping students retain information. After all, math IS fun!In the past 5 years, I have taught differential equations at a local university.
