Hello everyone,

Mathematics & Physics are like languages in the sense that they have to be practiced on a regular basis in order to master them. They are considered by many quite challenging but with enough dedication and patience one can be able to understand their beautiful logic.

I have a flexible variety of teaching methods, I can create an appropriate plan either for the student who is trying too hard or for the one who wants a deeper knowledge of a subject. At the same time, I can offer classes in English or Spanish.

"The study of mathematics,like the Nile,begins in minuteness but ends in magnificence."

-Charles Caleb Colton

Work Experience:

Sept 2015 - May 2018: Teaching Assistant at The University of Edinburgh, UK

Mathematics and Physics:

Marking assignments/tests/presentations, running Tutorials/Computer Workshops, head

of teaching assistants for PHYS08043-Dynamics and Vector Calculus, drop-in tutoring at

the MathsBase, online tutoring using the Piazza platform & scribe/invigilator for Mathematics

students with special circumstances.

Aug 2012 - Jul 2014: Tutor at Elgin Community College, USA

Mathematics and Physics:

Responsible for providing individual tutorial sessions and drop-in sessions for all Mathematics

and Physics courses as well as Computer Science for Engineers.

Jan 2012 - Present: Private Tutor, USA & UK

Subjects include Honours Algebra, Honours Complex Variables, Advanced Methods of

Applied Mathematics, Proofs, Quantum Mechanics & Lagrangian Mechanics.

June 2011 - Dec 2012: Tutor at The University of Illinois at Chicago, USA

Drop-in tutoring at the Mathematical Sciences Learning Center. Courses include Abstract

Algebra, Real Analysis, Differential Equations & Calculus.

Transportation Fee : $5

Rate for online lessons : $35/h

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $35

Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $30

My hourly rate applies to first year undergraduate courses. For second year courses like Differential Equations there is an extra $5 charge and for more advanced courses like Complex Variables & Quantum Mechanics a $10 extra charge.

For basic Linear Algebra (applied non-proof course) it's still $40, if it's Abstract Linear Algebra, then a $10 extra is charged.

For AP Calculus, Geometry and other High school courses, the rate goes down by $5 or $10 dollars depending on the subject.
