My teaching method depends on each student's needs and level of understanding. I gave tutoring classes to high school and college as well as the University level. My teaching methods include a cooperative approach. I use ZOOM and a document camera for online tutoring.
I hold a Ph.D. in mathematics and I have been a Professor of Mathematics at the University for 25 years. I have been giving private lessons in Mathematics for more than 30 years. I did tutor an average of 10 students per year and all of them scored an A guaranteed. I make sure to select a few students and focus on their success and goals and make plans to achieve that A.

I have a broad range of teaching experience, having taught more than 20 distinct courses ranging from a vector calculus class with 120 students to advanced graduate topics with only 5 students. My courses have been consistently well-received; for instance, my student evaluations have been excellent.
