I stress understanding rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have close to 10 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My long-term pricing is negotiable if we work together for an extended time.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

Algebra can be a really nice topic! The only thing needed is to be shown how to do the equations! Math, in general, is about learning to look at things in new ways, and by doing so one may learn how to talk about the same old things in some new and interesting ways. I actually have knowledge of algebra and calculus. Therefore, I would be able to help bridge the two together and go over the multiple topics and tools in both. Because this is a somewhat more detailed endeavor, I would try to provide multiple examples either ahead of time or prepare them in advance to better supplement anyone looking for more outlets.

About Miguel

I am a first-generation college student and I hold both an associate’s of science in the general sciences and a bachelor's of science in Neuroscience & Cognitive Science with a distributed emphasis in neurobiology. My coursework largely consists of Matlab modeling, neurogenetics, cognitive science

My son is a sophomore student that has a final in chemistry. I contacted Miguel and he scheduled a lesson right away on the same day(usually you need to schedule a couples days before to give to the teacher time to be prepared). My son took 3 lessons during the week to and Miguel explained him all the difficult material and unswerd his questions. Afterwards when I contacted the teacher during the lessons he unswerd and text me right away.
If you are looking a good teacher, definitely Miguel is!

Irfan is an outstanding tutor that I highly recommend. In less than an hour, he had my son understanding the concepts of chemistry that were frustrating him. Even though we were in different time zones, Irfan made sure to accommodate our schedule. While I originally had doubts about the effectiveness of web tutoring, I can honestly state that Irfan made it effective by using screenshare. Irfan also went out of his to share web links that would help my son with the chemistry issues they were working on. Again, I would highly recommend Irfan if you are looking for a chemistry tutor! We will be using him again I am sure!

James and I worked together for 4 months at an elementary school tutoring 3-5 graders in math and english. James is professional, intelligent, and creative. It was a pleasure working with him. He cares very much for the youth in our community.
We've stayed in touch via email and are developing a friendship I hope lasts a life time. He is good people.

"My 3 daughters looked forward to Tutoring Nights with Colin!

I have 3 girls in High school (10th, 10th, and 9th) . they had been struggling in math since I can remember. I didn't think I could afford tutoring. They each had an 'F' in math.

I found Colin, and what a blessing! In just THREE short weeks Colin had my girls understanding HIS lessons, their CLASSROOM lessons and PASSING their exams! They brought their grades up too!

The best thing I can compare his tutoring to is: an adult teaching a kid to ride a bike...
He didn't expect them to just ride a bike. he took the proper steps and taught my girls about the bike parts, the way the bike functions, how they all work together, how to properly sit and pedal, and he even held them up until they understood it completely and eventually were able to ride the bike on their own.

Thank you Colin! for putting my girls back on track with math!"
