Mr Stefano C. of Pickerington OH USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Mr Stefano C.
Gender: Male   Age: 22-25
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I came back to the United States after living most of my early life in the Dominican Republic in order to pursue post-secondary studies in the physical sciences. I majored in biology, chemistry, and mathematics at Manhattanville College and graduated with departmental and Summa Cum Laude honors. I recently completed my Master's thesis on imaginary quadratic number fields as a mathematics graduate student at New York University and will be applying to Ph.D. programs for the Fall of 2014 to continue research in either abstract algebra or mathematical logic.

In the meantime, I work as a tutor in math, science, Spanish, and English as a Second Language. I have been tutoring for the past 10 years and have helped over 400 students reach their full academic potential. I emphasize practice, practice, and more practice when it comes down to math problems. I also love to take a minute every now and then to point out why a certain formula or process is rigorous and precise. I relish the logic behind mathematical proofs and wish to help my students appreciate the unique elegance of such a demonstration.

Additionally, as a native Spanish speaker, I am fully aware of the difficulty of learning languages and know what students need in order to be engaged as they start rolling their R's or memorize stem-changing verbs. Overall, I use a calm approach and actively seek to fill the gaps in understanding my students may have.

Over the years, I learned patience is the most important contribution I can bestow onto my students' learning experience. Moreover, I encourage discussion with my students so as to fully develop motivation, analytical thinking, and focus. Hence, they know they can count on me for constant help with their coursework as my sessions provide a relaxed learning environment that bolsters their understanding and accomplishment.

Last but not least, I have a $40 late notice cancellation fee in effect. To avoid this surcharge please cancel or reschedule sessions at least 24 hours prior to our scheduled meeting time.
