I'm eager to help students who are struggling with mathematical concepts and/or need homework help. I have a systematic approach to solving problems (such as re-reading the question, underlining certain points and finding keywords for equations, and so on) and I draw diagrams to help visual learners and make connections to daily activities to enhance the learning. Helping my younger brother in grade 5 has provided me with the experience and skillset for tutoring mathematics. I'm happy to help students from grades 5-8, who are having difficulty with understanding math. I also highlight the concept of understanding the question, rather than just guessing the answer, which the student will obtain through active tutoring sessions.
I am a grade 10 pre-IB student and I am currently taking advanced math courses, including functions. I have participated and obtained awards and distinctions from extracurricular math contests (i.e. Gauss & Pascal Waterloo Math Contests). I am also enrolled in advanced mathematics studies in Kumon (currently studying grade 11 math). I strongly believe that it is important for students to have a strong foundation in mathematics, no matter their career of choice, as math is necessary in everyday life!
I'm patient, understanding and eager to help others reach their goals!
Education: Grade 10 pre-IB student in Milliken Mills High School (September 2019- Present), Grades 9 & 10 enriched math, currently studying grade 11 enriched functions
Prizes: Kumon Level N (platinum and gold awards– 2-3 yrs ahead of grade level), Certificate of Distinction Pascal Contest 2020, Certificate of Distinction Gauss Contest 2019, Certificate of Participation Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge
Extra-Curricular Involvements: Kumon, Healthcare Occupational Students of the Americas (HOSA), Student Leaders at Milliken
Experience: Tutored younger brother (2017-present)- This allowed me to develop and practice my teaching skills, Lunch Monitor (Legacy Public School 2015-2019)- This gave me the opportunity to practice my communication and interactive skills with students, including providing direct assistance to 25+ students during recess.
Shalini would make a great teacher. I am not saying this because she is my best friend I am saying it because I know that she loves helping others. She would put all her effort into helping people with their classwork or homework. Anybody could trust her she is always willing to help people with their work or any other thing. I know her since gr 5 & when I ever asked her to help me with anything she always helped me she never said no to me or anybody. Even if she was busy at that time. From gr 5 to gr 8 I have seen her helping everyone in her class with their work. And its been 6 years since I known her even know she helps me even though we don't go to the same High School. She has a lot of great qualities as the teacher should have. For example, she is responsible, organized, she is a strong communicator, she is very patient, great listener, she loves collaborating with people, she has never missed a due date of her work as she handed in her work before the due date, positive, she is very honest, self-discipline & flexible. I am 100% sure that none of the students will get disappointed form her. The students could trust her with anything they could even make her their friend. She is really good in Math. The students could ask question as many time as they want she won't get frustrated or angry at all. She will explain them as long as they don't get it. She is very patience. Anybody will recommend her but I recommend her to the other Superprof members because as I mention above about her qualities/skills she would make a great tutor/teacher. Everybody would love the way she will teach.
Thank you for reading this and I hope that you will accept her as a tutor.
I think Shalini is trustworthy and would make a great teacher.
A lot of times teachers can get frustrated or angry. Shalini isn't like that. She is calm and patiently waits and explain until the student understands a certain topic. She makes sure that the student understands what is being taught by using visuals and many other ways. Shalini has always tried to solve problems calmly. I think Shalini is a great fit for students who are struggling with math. She always stays calm and will explain it until you get it. As being the younger brother of Shalini, I know how she can help others!
