Frequently Asked Questions
How does your money-back guarantee work?
It’s simple. If you are not satisfied within the first 15 to 30 minutes, you simply let me know and you don’t have to pay at all. No questions asked. I would, however, appreciate any feedback so I can work on it to improve myself.
Why Choose me?
I take a very customized approach that is tailored to the needs of the students. I, first, assess my students to identify their strengths and areas of improvement and make lesson plans that cater to those areas. I also touch upon their areas of strengths while continuously working on the areas of improvement. Most students tell me that their past experiences with other tutoring services hasn’t been very effective because they were taught the topics using simple examples that looked nothing like the actual problems on the homework, quizzes, and exams. They felt that there was a big disconnect between the simple examples used to introduce the topic and the actual homework and exam problems. To bridge this gap, I use simple and basic examples to introduce the subject matter but then move on to working actual homework problems with them, building a layer of complexity, one at a time so they know how to solve the more challenging problems seen on homework assignments and quizzes on their own. By the time we are done with the chapter, the students would have learned enough techniques and methods that would help them to do the challenging problems seen on homework assignments, quizzes and exams. Besides, my tutoring service is backed by a money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with a session, you don’t pay for that session at all. I do, however, require that you let me know within the first 30 minutes if you are not satisfied with the session. I appreciate any feedback that I receive in real time.
Where do I Tutor?
I used to tutor at a public library, but ever since Covid-19, I tutor only online. I use an online interactive whiteboard with a variety of built-in Math tools and the sessions have been very effective. Besides, I must agree it is very convenient and I am beginning to like this more than I thought I would.
The login process is very simple. All you need is a Gmail account to sign up for free with the whiteboard service that I use. Before the start of each session, I will email you an invite to the whiteboard and all you have to do is login using your Gmail. Once logged in, both of us can get on an online audio call within the whiteboard system and we will be able to write on the same board. No webcam is required. All you need is a headset with a built-in microphone. Or if your laptop/tablet has a microphone built-in, then you can use that.
What is your schedule like?
I tutor during the library hours at Walter library. You can check out their hours by visiting their website at http://houstonlibrary.org/location/walter-neighborhood-library.
Do you offer group tutoring sessions?
In my experience, I have found group sessions to be ineffective because different students have different learning styles and a different level of understanding of the concepts. I always provide one-to-one tutoring.
How much do you charge per session?
I charge $25 per session. My price is fixed regardless of the number sessions you take with me.
What is your mode of payment?
As of now, I accept payments in Cash or Venmo. Ask me for my Venmo Id during the session.
Let’s Learn Together!
I get a lot of students who love my individualized approach and they tell me that they were totally lost in the big-name expensive courses. Due to my experience, I can instinctively figure out a lot about my students’ weaknesses and rebuild their fundamentals.I can teach you a lot of mental math techniques which are not in any book.
