Passionate, determined and driven engineering student seeking to enrich the experience of learning math and physics for students of all ages willing to learn.

Methodology

My methodology varies per individual: Initially, I engage in conversation with the student with the purpose of understanding their knowledge, strengths and weaknesses on the topic of discussion. Then, based upon the provided information, I formulate sequential and gradual lessons to help them start from what they know towards what they wish to know.

My experience as a tutor started off with my family: I taught my siblings mathematics varying from middle-school to university levels. In doing so, I realized I genuinely enjoy teaching and helping others learn--especially at a subject feared by many either due to its difficulty or the lack of passion from their instructor. Consequently, I started tutoring friends, then through friends, strangers. Now I wish to take this experience from just a hobby to a profession.

My belief in learning (in general) is that there is no such thing as a "stupid" person--only a bad tutor. I see this trend prevalent in public education full of teachers qualified in the knowledge of the subject their teaching, but not in how to communicate it. Thus, leaving majority of students uninterested or feeling that the topic they're learning is too difficult. Yes, a student may make mistakes and fumble in the process of learning, but that itself IS learning. And my hope is that I can provide a learning experience for students willing to learn in such a manner that they won't feel "stupid" but excited to learn.

Background

I am a third-year computer engineering student at Ryerson University. I have spent an innumerable amount of time tutoring friends, family members and strangers in math and physics. Consequently, I now wish to take my passion for teaching and helping students understand and appreciate these fields to a professional level.

Math comes to Mansur naturally. Whether you like your answers in the shortest way possible or in a more elaborative way, Mansur can do it all. Not only is he excellent at math, but he is also passionate about teaching and communicating with others. Mansur would assess one's math skills and see where they're at and then from here he would try to individualize a plan to help them. He does this because he is empathic towards people as he knows not everyone has the same skills in math. I remember Mansur doing this for me for a math course at Ryerson called Measurement and Analysis. I wasn't good at math and Mansur first assessed what my capabilities are and then he came up with an individual plan to help me excel in this course. He is very precise and can also be elaborative if required.

He is very professional at teaching, goes through the material very precisely. So, I understood every bit of it. I was struggling really badly and through his help i improved a lot. He is an amazing tutor, brilliant, smart and fun. All these qualities because of how he feels great passion for Maths and excels at it.

Mansur has tremendously guided and supported me academically with his ability to teach. I can understand teachers get frustrated when students aren’t comprehending the material, but patience is a key Mansur has developed through the years which is a quality an exceptional teacher/tutor should have. In my experience as one of his students, confidence in the topic that he taught me is something I always walk away with after our tutoring session.

Mansur is a fellow Ryerson University student and tutors me for physics. He is great at explaining concepts and gives good examples, he does not make me feel inferior when I don't understand something, which helps me be more confident in learning.

A friend of mine recommended Mansur to me for math help. I am a university student, with courses that have various types of mathematics integrated in them, and Mansur was very helpful in explaining those to me. My experience with Mansur has always been positive. He is a patient and attentive teacher. He does an excellent job at breaking down and explaining problems. His assistance was a great help, especially as someone who struggles with math. Would highly recommend.

Mansur and I are very good friends. After switching programs and universities, I was struggling in my math and physics courses. He offered to tutor me once a week and he's been very helpful. Mansur is patient and understanding. He is also very passionate about subjects such as math and is eager to help those who are willing to learn. Overall, he is a great teacher and wants to see his students succeed. Tutoring sessions with him is a valuable experience and he has helped me improve tremendously in my courses.

Mansur's interview

QUESTION 01 | 07
What motivates you to tutor and why?
Mansur β€” Teaching is learning in itself, and I pride myself on knowledge; I believe knowledge is the most powerful skill one can acquire in this world to do an innumerable amount of things, and that fascinates me. I want to be a medium for students to achieve that for themselves. Especially, since I've lived through the horror of public education and know that it really needs to be restructured (at least where I live).This segues into another belief of mine: a connected world. Teaching others allows them to connect to the world in ways they never could've thought possible, and in hopes that this continues in a sort of domino effect, I believe this world can be even further astounding than it already is.
QUESTION 02 | 07
When did you start developing an interest in your subject area?
Mansur β€” I developed this interested starting in my 11th grade of high school.
QUESTION 03 | 07
If you had to think of a role model for your work, who do you think of any why?
Mansur β€” Anyone that can teach me something new and useful, I'm inspired by them. So to answer the question, I don't really have a specific role model - I just believe that we have one life to live, so why not live it knowing as muny wonders of this world as possible (through knowledge)?
QUESTION 04 | 07
What is the biggest obstacle you had to overcome in mastering your craft?
Mansur β€” Discipline - It's hard to stay focused, motivated, and consistent when you just don't feel like doing the work.
QUESTION 05 | 07
In your opinion, what makes someone excel in your subject area?
Mansur β€” Understanding the theory behind the concept as opposed to just knowing how to solve individual problems.
QUESTION 06 | 07
What would you say to a student who says, "this is too difficult, I give up"?
Mansur β€” I wouldn't say much. I'd try to understand what they find difficult and why they find it difficult. Then, I'd cater the learning experience to them so that they could understand the concept.
QUESTION 07 | 07
How does someone become a Super Tutor?
Mansur β€” Don't view your students' learning and success based upon their skills. Base it upon your skills as a tutor. I.e. If they're doing poorly under your mentorship, it's not because they're stupid, it's because you're failing to do your job as a tutor.
