My teaching style is reflective of how I learn best. I always need to understand the concepts behind what I'm doing before I can begin to solve the problem, especially in mathematics. Thus, I always try to ensure that my students have a rich understanding of the concepts they're dealing with which in turn will help them with actual problems. My goal as a tutor is to turn what you struggle with into something easy.

Watching students improve their calculus skills over time is my favorite part of tutoring! I always work to build strong, long term relationships with my students so they can comfortably ask me questions and receive thoughtful mentoring. I have been tutoring students for four years now, and I worked as a Teacher’s Assistant at Columbia for one year.

I have a passion for empowering students to be the best they can be. I pinpoint a given student's areas of trouble, empowering them by providing additional instructions in each area and examples to help them better solve and understand each problem. My students have successfully improved their grades from B to A.

Calculus Gooroo tutors will work with students towards their learning goals, whether it’s to ace a class, get ahead, or simply learn more. Moreover, they evaluate where the student is at currently and hone in on specific Calculus concepts students are having trouble with, and make sure to help students grasp a deep understanding of the subject in every subtopic. Parents will be able to see their child’s session feedback after every session on the Gooroo website, and track their progress over time.
For Calculus, it’s always important to make sure core concepts make sense before going into specific strategies and equations. Calculus Gooroo tutors will introduce example problems, and then give the student a simple problem that follows the same pattern, and introduce more nuances over time. As a student begins to understand the concept, the tutor will ask them to talk through how they would solve a problem, and solve it step-by-step. This will help the Gooroo tutor assess any gaps in knowledge the student has.
This step-by-step approach is one of the learning styles that work well for some students. One way our Gooroo tutors stand out is by paying attention to which learning styles work best for their students.
Another example of this is with visuals - visual learners do best when looking at concepts graphically. For instance, using a graph when explaining how to find the average value of a function:

Gooroo is such a blessing, since I cannot usually help my son with math. The tutor identified the issues my son was having and areas he was struggling in during their first session. I listened in a little and I’m so happy with how our Gooroo interacts with him!
