Janine

Bachelor’s Degree in Biology

Biology | Chemistry | Mathematics

Prior to becoming a full-time educator, I pursued extensive studies in life and chemical sciences, and I have been rigorously trained to teach biology, chemistry, and mathematics both at the high school and university level. When it comes to helping my students, I am remembered for always putting my students first to get them ahead. With technology within our reach, I aim to leverage it as a tool to make learning math and science more engaging, interactive, and accessible; in hopes of increasing math and science literacy beyond classroom walls!

Marco

Bachelor of Science

Chemistry | Mathematics

¡Hola, my name is Marco! I graduated from UCLA with a bachelor's degree in Chemistry. Although my major is chemistry, I actually find myself spending most of the time studying math rather than chemistry! During high school, I loved both math and physics, so I chose chemistry, which to me seemed like the middle ground between them. Outside of teaching, I like to take pictures of nature, play badminton, and watch Netflix. As an educator, I believe it is important to learn something new everyday. Recently, I have been learning Spanish. ¡El conocimiento es poder!

Ifeoma

PhD in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry

Mathematics | Chemistry

My name is Ifeoma Nwigwe Obiora. I have a PhD in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University. I truly enjoy interacting with students, and I have had the privilege to teach students at many academic levels (elementary to collegiate/graduate level). My teaching experience began as a student tutor at Douglass College, Rutgers University where I tutored many of my peers. During my time at Yale University, I tutored and taught at both the collegiate and high school level, and finally as a lecturer in Nigeria I have had the pleasure of training both undergraduate and graduate students.

Ashley

Bachelors of Mathematics

Mathematics

I earned my bachelor's degree and I will complete my masters in math at the University of Minnesota. I'm interested in many areas of math, including calculus, linear algebra and discrete math. My main focus is on ordinary differential equations and I love helping students gain a better understanding of it. In my view, math is a fascinating subject which can be found everywhere in our daily lives. Did you know that there is an intrinsic math connection between a Kaleidoscope and a snowflake? Photography and dancing are my ways of enjoying life. You should definitely visit Minnesota one day, because it has so many beautiful lakes!

Garrett

Masters Degree in Physics

Physics | Mathematics

Hi, my name is Garrett! I grew up in the south Chicagoland area and attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I majored in Engineering Physics and minored in Mathematics. I then spent some time as a researcher at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California before travelling to Penn State University to earn a master's in Physics. Now, I'm back in Chicago working as a freelance data scientist and tutor. I aim to recreate this positive and motivating environment with all of my students. In my free time, I enjoy playing the tuba, cooking, and spending time with my 18 year old cat, Asher.

Zhongda

Masters Degree in Organic Chemistry

Chemistry | Biology

I graduated from the University of Waterloo and did my Masters at the University of Toronto, where I studied how a fat storage organelle is controlled in cells. In my spare time, I love to consume all of the interesting food across the city of Toronto and I am constantly traveling across the world to sample different cuisines. Perhaps that’s also a reason why I studied fat storage? Keeping me company at home is my adorable Bengal cat, who is now almost 7 years old! While I hate to leave her, occasionally I step outside to play basketball in my co-ed team league.

Houssem

Bachelor of Science

Mathematics

My name is Houssem and I am your tutor for math. I have been in love with mathematics since high school, that is why I chose to do a bachelor of science in electrical engineering at the United States Naval Academy where I graduated as an engineer and as a naval officer. Teaching university students is something I have enjoyed so much over the years, and I hope I can covey all of my expertise and knowledge to you to help you achieve your goals. Looking forward to working with you!

Dhruv

Bachelor's in Computer Science

Computer Science |  Mathematics

Hello! My Name is Dhruv and I am a Math Tutor. I have been fascinated by the beauty of mathematics since I was a child. Currently I am perusing my Masters in Applied Computer Science from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. I am planning to become a Data Scientist when complete my masters. I have been a math tutor since my 2nd year of university and since then I have been teaching math to students from all over the world! I believe that “When you learn, teach, and when you get, give”. My goal is to create a great environment for my students where they can learn math very easily and comfortably. I hope I can help my students learn math in an effortless way.

Matt

Bachelor of Science and Mathematics

Mathematics

My name is Matt and it is potentially great to meet you! I was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta where I initially pursued a Bachelor of Science in Astrophysics. I decided that I wanted to learn more math as well so I kept taking more courses there. After a while, I decided to switch into physics. However, since I had taken so many Astrophysics courses, I finished that degree as well and I eventually graduated with two bachelors, one is a double major in Physics and Astrophysics while the other is in general mathematics. After words I decided to pursue a Masters degree in Physics and I recently graduated from that. Throughout my academic turmoils, I have always enjoyed teaching and I would love the opportunity to help you out with Physics or Mathematics. As for my regular life, I really enjoy cooking, playing video games, public speaking, and hanging out with friends.

Ken

MA in Communications and Technology

Mathematics | Chemistry

After spending 15 years in the classroom teaching science, technology, and math to a wide variety of students I have moved into a virtual world of publishing, online teaching, and educational content creation. My BEd is in General Sciences and Math, and my Masters is in Communication and Technology. I find this combination serves me very well in many modern approaches to education. While I appreciate the advantages technology provides us, I still feel there in no more powerful a moment than the student learning from their teacher.

Daniel

Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering

Mathematics

Throughout my time as a student, mathematics played a large part in the work I've completed and the opportunities I've been a part of. Working alongside others came hand-in-hand with the mathematical challenges I've faced, especially during my industrial experiences. With a Chemical Engineering degree from UIUC, I want to help others achieve their educational goals and develop greater confidence in what they can accomplish. Every day I try to learn about something that betters me from who I was yesterday. Today is a great day for you to try for yourself.

Timmy

Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry

Mathematics | Chemistry

I graduated from Davidson College with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. Throughout my years of tutoring and research in various chemical fields, one truth has always risen above the rest; you can only communicate to others when you first listen to their experiences and who they are. So, it is always my goal to listen first and then solve problems one step at a time without ever letting someone become overwhelmed. I bring with me a deep love and understanding of math and chemistry but also a passion for teaching and a grounded patience with my students. My undying curiosity about the world means constantly reinventing myself with others and exploring cooking, piano, and travelling on a consistent basis.

Mathematics

Hello everyone! I am currently pursuing my post secondary education at Stony Brook University in Biomedical Engineering. I was a former instructor at the Mathnasium of Levittown, a K-12 mathematics tutoring center. Throughout high school, I have genuinely enjoyed learning math and excelled in all my mathematics courses. I have prior experience with tutoring in mathematics subjects at the high school and college level with student athletes. I genuinely enjoy tutoring students who wish to further develop their mathematics skills. As a tutor, it is crucial for me to give students the necessary time to fully understand and apply mathematics skills in their academics and more. In my free time, I enjoy swimming, trying new foods, and playing video games.
