Featured Tutor

URMIL

Mt. Prospect, IL

I give precise instructions to my students so they understand the outcomes of the problems provided. I have students demonstrate what I have taught them as we go through each problem and concept respectively. I let the students solve individual problems independently offering guidance as needed. Thus I get to unlock the potential in each student in order to learn the study material successfully.

I am passionate about sharing my background as a leading classroom math teacher, trainer, mentor for over five years. Having graduated in the fields of Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics successfully, I have been teaching since February 2009 at all school levels to college level Math involving Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus and Standardized Math Test programs such as ACT/SAT/PSAT-Math, AP-Calculus etc; at two learning centers(and later as an Independent Educator) in Chicago area to a very diverse group of students.
