I am a professional tutor with years of experience. I have an MBA and a Bachelor's degree in Physics from Eastern Illinois University, providing a powerful intersection between mathematics, statistics, and the business world. I tutor grades 9-College.

Thanks to my years of exposure to various students with various subject needs, providing me with materials from multiple teachers who use different approaches to explain a single idea, I have within my knowledge/view all of the strategies and techniques used to present statistics, mathematics, and business. With this view, one could say that I 'see the forest through the trees.' How does this affect my tutoring style? Suppose a student has difficulties with the traditional approaches to introducing new concepts. In that case, I can break out of the standard approach and explain things from a top-down view where the building blocks of concepts are presented, and the most simple, fundamental concepts are grasped before more complex ideas are introduced. I am meticulous and know when a student is stressed, being pushed in their mental capacity, and not enjoying the education process. During this time, I always bring things down to a level where they understand concepts and receive the rewarding feeling of knowledge. Without enjoyment, learning does not take place.

Every student is a success story. Students don't fail if they drop out of school. This concept of 'win or lose' really hurts the educational approach. Yes, I have those traditional success stories where a student learned what I taught, and they passed the class. But I have one better: I helped a student overcome their fear of dropping out of school and getting a job in a position that allowed them to advance into the place they wanted to be. The student was not made for the traditional education system, nor should everyone be cut out for it... With my hyper-attention to each student, I could quickly recognize that the effort they needed to exert to finish school with passing marks was too much. Instead, I talked to them about what would happen if they dropped out of school, found a job, worked there, and slowly worked up to the position they wanted in their software development firm. This is more in line with what success should be...

I cook and feed food for 100+ people a week for free. I help other members of my group feed 400 more people a week. I sprout and grow my own mango and date trees to give away for free. I read books on self-improvement and spend time with my family. I'm always learning new things to be able to tutor a ever-increasing range of students!
