Donovan E.

Hello! My name is Donovan E. and I am excited to meet you. I recently moved to Miami from Houston, TX to continue my training in medicine. Aside from tutoring, I’m looking to see if the tacos here compare to back home so I will be accepting all recommendations. When I’m not enjoying local eateries, enjoying and playing music, and studying, you can find me continuing my passion for helping young minds master their skills in Math and Science. I have a love for these subjects and I truly enjoy helping students no matter where they are in their journey. Be it aiming to raise a grade or getting over the hump to truly master one of my listed subjects, I am confident that decade-plus experience as a private tutor will prove helpful on your journey. I’m looking forward to hearing from you and working with you.

 

David S.

David is a student at the University of Illinois Chicago majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics. He went to Glenbard South High School in Glen Ellyn, and during his time there, he dedicated a great deal of time to the orchestra and math team. His other hobbies include volunteering and lifting weights at the gym, to name a couple. If you find out about any particular passions of David’s, be weary of mentioning them, as his mouth will not close for some time after. He is also bilingual in English and Russian, with native-speaker proficiency in both. David has taken advanced classes in math and physics including Mechanics, Electricity & Magnetism, Calculus 1-3, and Discrete Mathematics, among others, and has an understanding of all prerequisite topics for each. On the teaching side of things, he believes that intuition and deep understanding are the most effective ways of learning a given topic, not just memorizing the methods needed to solve homework problems. David is very patient and will ensure that a student fully understands the “why?” before moving on to the “what’s next?” without getting bogged down. He does not hand out answers like candy and will challenge a student to guide them to a solution on their own. Being a student himself, David is understanding and still sculpts his teaching methods to each individual.
