Ramis M. of Cambridge MA MA USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Ramis M.
Gender: Male   Age: 26-30
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have tutored high school, college and graduate students in sciences and mathematics in the past. I have also tutored pre-college students with GRE's, SAT's, and physics competitions.

I am excited about mathematics and sciences and find it very satisfying to help others find that excitement by helping them get good at what they are struggling with.

I believe teaching is an adaptive process, where one has to find the optimum method that works for a given student.

Lastly, I think it is very important to convey the core of the subject to the student efficiently and then explore the details by working through various examples.
