I a mechanical engineering graduate at Stony Brook University. My key quality as a tutor aside for the passion I have for my subjects is definitely my patience with students. I feel that tutoring is not just instruction, but a means of communication with students.
From my years of tutoring I have come to learn that misunderstanding of subject concepts come not from the students own lack of understanding, but rather from lack of proper interpretation of students questions. Taking the time to understand the students area of difficulty and approaching it in the manner the student feels comfortable works very well in allowing students to see why their particular way of thinking may not be correct, rather than telling them what the right method or answer is.
I love to tutor Physics as well as many areas of Mathematics and engineering courses. I am definitely qualified to tutor these subjects because above the understanding and comprehension that I have demonstrated in these courses in my years as a student, I have a great passion and love for the disciplines. Having been a tutor as well as a student at my previous college, LaGuardia CC, I am well aware of the difficulties that students face in these subjects, and I sympathize with them because I have experienced these same difficulties as well. I want to help my students not just to excel in these subject areas, but to enjoy them. If there is one thing I have learned over the years, it is that the only way to excel in your work is to enjoy your work.
