« My name is Martin Chijani and I am an electrical engineer at Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO). The IESO oversees and ensures the reliability of the power system in Ontario, Canada. I work along side Mr Charles Park who is also an electrical engineer. In January of 2019 I was transitioned to a new engineering function within the department. Charles helped me transition to my new role by giving me one on one tutoring, teaching me the new processes, demonstrating new software and walking me through new techniques. My new engineering functions are highly technical and complex. Charles was comprehensive, clear in his guidance and communication. He was also sympathetic and patient with me as a beginner while maintaining an engaging atmosphere. Charles would adaptively explain things to me switching between graphical, verbal and written methods of communication in a manner that was best suited for the subject matter he was teaching me. Charles also listened clearly to my questions before answering. He also showed patience with me when answering questions of information he had already given me. With Charles’ help I was able to effectively transition into the new role smoothly. I still continue to benefit from the tips and training Charles provided me. »

Methodology

My previous clients have noted that I approach teaching with an analytical mind influenced by my ongoing experience as a power system engineer in Ontario, Canada. In my classroom environment, I strive for three outcomes: obtaining the trust of my clients, committing to their learning objectives with patience, and demonstrating attention to detail to foolproof my instruction.

Over a cumulative period of 5 years, I had the opportunity to teach students from ages 4 to 18 in classes of 1 to 30 students; through these experiences, I have developed an aptitude for adjusting my instruction to account for differences in age, learning styles, and skill levels. Numerous times, my classes have been praised for having an excellent learning culture, lots of engagement, and most importantly, a safe environment in which students are not afraid to make and learn from their mistakes.

If you are interested in enlisting my services, you can expect the following:
1. A free, no-commitment consultation via Zoom videoconferencing that may last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. Through this consultation, I learn about my client’s needs and answer any of my client’s questions. My findings from this consultation form the basis for a comprehensive lesson plan tailored to the client’s needs that I will develop on my own time. My previous clients have signed on for a minimum of 5 hours of instruction; however, there are some who have continued with my lessons for as long as 50 hours, having committed to 5 consecutive blocks of ten-hour lesson plans. After the consultation, clients may choose to not proceed with any lessons or indicate an initial number of instruction hours for which they would like to sign on. There is no commitment to sign on for any classes at the end of the consultation; clients may choose to deliberate for any period after the consultation.

2. By default, my lesson plans would be inspired by a structure that complements the school math curriculum that the client must learn. Based on the client’s specific needs, I can expand on the basic curriculum or drill down on specific mathematics concepts. Some clients may require remedial assistance, homework help, or fast-tracking their learning, among other activities. Generally, I can cover any math course offered from Kindergarten to Grade 12 and parts of first and second year university math for engineers and non-engineers. The material can cover math at various levels including Applied, Academic, and International Baccalaureate Standard Level and Higher Level. High school courses can include but are not limited to Advanced Functions, Calculus & Vectors, Data Management and Statistics. University courses can include but are not limited to First Year University Calculus and depending on the syllabus, even Second Year University Calculus.

3. In each lesson, I like to start not necessarily with the mathematics concept, but the real-life application of the concept when applicable. As an engineer, I have always been interested in the application of a mathematics concept, because the relevance of a concept to one’s own life is what made the concept worth retaining in the first instance. After motivating the concept with real-life examples, I will expand the lesson to discuss the theory and apply the theory to sample problems that demonstrate true understanding based on first principles. Time permitting, I will also prescribe takeaway homework problems and questions that give my clients confidence in their ability to apply mathematics under test settings. Ultimately, I not only want to see my clients appreciate mathematics, but also succeed academically.

4. All my lessons can be recorded on Zoom if the client requests it. Then I can share the Zoom lesson recording with my client after the class is done. This way, even if the client feels uncomfortable with the subject matter when discussed in real-time with me, there is always the chance to revisit the material independently and ask any follow up questions in the next lesson. Of course, my goal is to ensure that the material is understood as it is introduced, but the recordings can remain an additional resource for my clients.

5. Interaction Logistics: Additionally, all the interactions we have on Zoom can be performed on a shared whiteboard on which both the client and I will be able to write; this way, I can see how the client approaches a mathematics problem and suggest changes to fix it in real-time. I will save the whiteboard notes in a personal google drive folder that will only be accessible to myself and my client. Another option can be to interact using Google Jamboard, another resource that will be in our shared drive. Alternatively, if the client is not comfortable with using the Zoom or Google Jam whiteboards, the client may choose to write on paper, take a picture of it, and upload it into the shared google drive. We can then bring up the picture in the shared google drive and discuss that work using Zoom's screen share options.

My name is Martin Chijani and I am an electrical engineer at Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO). The IESO oversees and ensures the reliability of the power system in Ontario, Canada. I work along side Mr Charles Park who is also an electrical engineer.

With Charles’ help I was able to effectively transition into the new role smoothly. I still continue to benefit from the tips and training Charles provided me.

I am a Ph.D. student studying Computer Science focusing on Machine Learning at the University of Toronto. I met Charles during our undergraduate Engineering Science program.

I had the pleasure of working with Charles when he led the Youth Development Program, reporting to me while I was the Co-Vice President of the Youth Engagement portfolio in the Engineers Without Borders (EWB) club. In the program, Charles wrote detailed lesson plans on several social change topics--from agriculture and food security to water and sanitation. But that was only the starting point. Our enthusiastic high school student participants divided into groups to tackle each different workshop topics and later presented their findings to their peers. Despite the complexity and sometimes abstractness of these issues, Charles communicated these ideas to the students and provided them with the tools to dig deeper. He also gave feedback on student presentations and activity plans. Overall the students truly enjoyed the Youth Development Program, and it would not have been a success without Charles.

We were especially proud when we later found that some of our participants chose to pursue an engineering program at the University of Toronto. I am sure that Charles had been one of the role models inspiring them to pursue this path.

As the coordinator of the math tutoring service at a high school that offers the International Baccalaureate program, I had the privilege of working with Charles when he was a math tutor under my supervision. Right from the beginning, I could tell that Charles was extremely passionate about math and teaching others. He was extremely patient and able to effectively teach students with different learning styles by focusing on their individual needs. He was willing to work with students to develop a detailed learning plan and set goals to accomplish. He was always punctual, organized, and prepared for every session. He was even willing to take on extra tutoring sessions to help students in need! After a while, Charles became one of the most sought-after tutors within the group of 100+ tutors that I supervised. Students would specifically attend the sessions that Charles was in charge of in order to get his one-on-one attention. From my observations, I can say that students greatly benefited from Charles’ tutoring services and were able to see a positive reflection in their marks. If you are looking to build a strong math foundation or further enhance your mathematical problem solving skills, I would highly recommend Charles.
