Math from Algebra all they way to Calculus forms the basis for work needed in Mechanical Engineering. In addition, many problems in Computer Science require a good understanding of basic algebra and logic concepts.

I would try to teach this subject in a manner the way I was originally taught. Start with the fundamental reason why the subject is needed for the problem you are trying to solve, and then build on top of from there by proceeding to learn the steps.

About Gaurav
As a graduate of the Carnegie Mellon Mechanical Engineering program, I had the opportunity to provide guidance to students in multiple ways. I helped incoming freshman in the Introduction to Mechanical Engineering classes as a Teaching Assistant and also as a grader. I made sure to provide clear feedback on all homework assignments to ensure that students were steered the right direction.

As a teaching assistant, I would assist the professor in proctoring exams so I have a lot of experience interacting with students and being able to adapt to different situations.

Before college, I spen
t two years tutoring at Kumon Learning Center in high school where I would teach younger elementary school children Math and Reading. As I go forward, I'd like to continue to share the knowledge I have and help people learn.

I also have previous experience tutoring online and have multiple students learn the fundamentals of the subject they wanted to understand. I look forward to working with you!

I am currently a senior at Avila University, studying mathematics and finance. I am currently a tutor, but I plan on mastering in math and teaching at the collegiate level. I specialize in basic math, algebra, calculus, geometry, logic, statistics, and more. All ages and math levels are welcome. I do not believe in one way to teach all, I will personally customize and cater to the needs/goals of each student. I will be sure to make sure each student has a solid foundation for math so as they grow in the future they can build on the skills they already have.

About Cydney
I am a senior at Avila University studying math and finance. I plan on continuing my education and mastering in math with hopes to become a collegiate mathematics professor. I have been tutoring every level of math since 2014, giving me a wide variety of topics that I could help with. I truly have a passion for education, math, and helping others.

The students I teach can expect to be taught in teaching styles that relate directly to them. My goals with each student is to make sure there is a basic knowledge that is necessary for every level of math, but more importantly, the ability to pr
oblem solve analytically and be able to apply that to any of their course work (including tests).

I am a student athlete, so I understand what it's like to be very busy and on the go and to feel like you're drowning in homework that you just don't understand. That is why I am willing to be very flexible to schedules and to come prepared and ready to help. Whether that 30 minutes or 3 hours.
