About Me

Experience Summary

I am a PhD student of mathematics and it is my passion to make the subjects in which I specialize vivid and understandable. I have been a mathematics instructor at Hunter College for the past 5 years. So far, the list of courses that I taught is as follows: (1) Precalculus, (2) Calculus I, (3) Calculus II, (4) Calculus III, (5) Calculus based probability theory, (6) Real Analysis I, (7) Real Analysis II. In the process of teaching, I developed copious lecture notes, exams, animations, and other material to help my students master difficult concepts. Over 40 student reviews of my lectures are easily found online and many more may be provided upon request. I am particularly skilled at explaining following topics: 1) Basic Algebra/ Trigonometry/ Precalculus 2) Single Variable Calculus 3) Multivariate Calculus 4) Linear and Abstract Algebras 5) Real and Complex Analysis 6) Analysis on Manifolds If you need help with more elementary topics or with a subject that I haven't listed here, please feel free to contact. I will be glad to help with any undergraduate and even graduate mathematics courses.

Subject Commentary

Calculus II This is one of my top subjects! Proficiency: Expert
I have several years of teaching experience of single and multivariate calculus both as a college instructor and as a tutor. I love this subject and I can communicate this love to anyone who is earnestly interested to learn it and lock it in the mind forever. I enjoy teaching, especially when I don't feel like I'm merely giving a boost to someone to whom this subject is but a hurdle. I have helped many struggling students discover that they are actually gifted mathematically. A few of these students even graduated with a master's degree in math. For most students at the calculus level, the 'make-or-break' factor is their willingness to embrace the subject without holds. To those unwilling to tolerate her rough nature, mathematics is a cantankerous lady. Give her your love and she will show you her charms.
Trigonometry This is one of my top subjects! Proficiency: Expert
Many students are frightened of trigonometry and think it to be beyond their power to comprehend its 'esoteric concepts'. In reality, every idea from Trigonometry that one would need to excel in subjects ranging from Precalculus to Linear Algebra and beyond can be thoroughly learned in the span of 8-12 one-hour lessons. As long as the student is willing to make the commitment to understand rather than memorize concepts, basic Trigonometry will start feeling like the breeze very soon! My teaching plan is as follows: (-1) 20 problem multiple-choice diagnostic test to give price estimate. (0) Evoke curiosity and excitement. [30 minutes free of charge] (1) Degree and Radian measure [2 hr lecture] (2) Basic trigonometry on the unit circle [2 hr lecture] (3) Sum and difference formulas for sin & cos [2 hr lecture] (4) Inverse trig functions [2 hr lecture] As a college instructor, I make the effort to excite my students into learning the mathematics. Being excited about trigonometry is easy once you see how much you can do with it. Be sure to check the animations in my "resources" folder. All of them made heavy use of trigonometry.
