Straight A high school student in 2nd year of college with 4.0 GPA. Can teach anything but excel in science, mathematics, computer science/programming and Spanish.

Methodology

I focus on tailoring each lesson specifically to the student. I believe that a conceptual understanding is the most important asset a student should have in order to excel in their subject - and thus, my lessons focus on cultivating a conceptual understanding that is as rigorous as possible with no gaps in logic or reasoning.

Background

Hey! I'm Yusef and I'm a 2nd year computer science student at UMass Amherst with a 4.0 GPA. I've tutored in the past and really enjoy the feeling of helping someone understand something. The 'aha' moment is always so satisfying! I can guarantee a personalised experience where we have a genuine conversation and work together to better your understanding, instead of a 1vs30 experience where a teacher shouts a bunch of generic info at a class. (no hate to teachers, they just have a lot of students to deal with). With me, it's 1 on 1 and all about your understanding.

I have found that this approach has worked well with my previous students over the past few years and helped them to significantly better their exam and assignments scores.
