what makes him an awesome tutor

One thing that I believe in strongly is that anyone who wants to do well can do well. Everyone is different. We think and learn differently. I believe that everyone can do well in math and science once they figure out their own ways to approach a problem. My job is to guide them to ask the right questions and find their own way of thinking. For me, tutoring is like solving a puzzle. Once I help a student to figure out their own pattern, math and science becomes much easier and actually fun to understand and learn.

fun facts

Life goal: To become a teacher and to guide young people. I would not be as the person I am now if it weren’t for some incredible individuals in my life. I hope that when I become a teacher that I can help others that just need a little bit of help to achieve their potential!

Words to Live By: 

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!

-Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa

Favourite Mathematical Weapon: 

Practice. No computer or fancy calculator is more helpful than training your mind.

Fave Tech device: If there is one thing that would make life much harder, it would be the absence of my I-Phone! I use it to jot down objectives for the day, look at the time, listen to music, keep in touch with my close friends or call in emergencies.

When you're not crunching numbers: I love spending quality time with friends and family. I have many hobbies such as soccer, Frisbee, tennis, Karate, piano, and video games. I also love movies!

What’s the best thing about you? I guess if there is one thing my friends would say about me; it’s that I am reliable. I never want to let anyone down, and when I am given a responsibility I commit to it 100%. I have two younger brothers who look up to me, so ever since I was young I was obsessed with not looking bad! I try to be a good role model by being honest and working hard.

nerd alert! 

I am a huge Star Wars fan!! I have played many Star Wars video games, read expanded universe stuff and watched all the films and animated series! I even have some cool Star Wars items like a Yoda light saber model and a Star Wars coin. I am also a big fan of animation and film, and I do know a lot more about the making of them than the average viewer does thanks to my brother who knows all about it!
