Personal Statement :
A faly of teachers, writers and performers underlie the skills, interest and
energy to become an acadec citizen. Grandmother, who was blind, used a boxful of
plastic letters and taught me to read. Grandfather was a writer and a teacher of
language and religion, and he loved to give speeches in public. Mother taught music and
played piano professionally. Being a professor of mathematics combines all of these.
And yes, mathematics is musical. It has rhythm, melodies, themes and variations, color,
depth, brilliance, and harmony that everyone can discover.
· Teaching
More than anything else, mathematics, and learning in general, should matter to
students. My teaching philosophy is very simple: raise the bar of expectations, treat
students with kindness and humor, help students confront their fears, and teach them to
know and love the subject matter. At its best, a mathematics class is enhanced by every
emotion—except ego. Teaching mathematics requires one of the most difficult efforts on
the part of a human being: sacrificing self to idea.
Students fail, not because too much is expected of them, but because we expect
too little. Gradually raising expectations will encourage the students to attain the heights
of which they are all capable. Find out where the students are, relative to the course
goals, and bring them along from that point. Challenge students by raising expectations,
because they must think, use their heads, and not just parrot back facts.
Students also fail because they are afraid. I failed my Ph.D. exams the first time
because of fear, not ignorance. On the retest, one professor began the exam with a
straightforward question. I answered it and knew, right then, that I was a mathematician.
This man handed me a life, and he provided a valuable lesson: treat students with
kindness, and they will do great things. When you genuinely care about students and
take extra steps with them, their responses will be gratifying.
To help students confront their fears is to help them remove barriers to learning.
Many students are afraid of mathematics, and my goal is to help students understand
the source of this fear. Once they are no longer afraid, they can then enjoy mathematics.
When students hear about battles with hard problems in my own research, they see that
they are not alone in their mathematical struggles. Students love to hear stories about
mathematicians and episodes from the history of mathematics, and as a result, they
change their nds about mathematics being devoid of humanity.
In a classroom there are two types of students, the captivated and the captive.
Those who are captivated by the subject will go as far as time allows, and eventually
they become colleagues. Find them interesting and challenging projects and then jump
out of the way. I have had the chance to do this for many wonderful and multitalented
students such as: Victoria Kerewich, a banker and horticulturalist; Jeff Klanderman, an
actuary and pilot; Carla Moravitz, a business consultant and mathematician; Ashley
White, an engineer and concert violinist; and three exceptionally talented students to be
mentioned later.

Personal Statement :
I am enthusiastic in helping people and sharing the knowledge I have. Additionally the knowledge and experience I have is a good asset to the students or people I tutor. I am from Africa but who lived in united states for more than a decade and understand both cultures. Other than English I fluently speak, read and write in Amharic and Oromic (Oromiffa) languages. So students who speak either of these languages might benefit more from my tutoring. Above all I understand about any prevailing areas where students need improvement including their strengths. I have a Master's degree in Mathematics and shington State Teaching Certification with endorsement of Mathematics that has qualified me to teach in high schools of shington Schools.

Personal Statement :
My mission is to make l students successful in whatever they have set their mind to do. I am here to support their learning, answer their questions and be the best tutor for them.
My approach to tutoring is that of a mentor. The role of a mentor is much closer than that of a tutor. A mentor has the capacity to guide and shape l aspects of students' life. It is because of this, that I take my role so seriously.

Personal Statement :
As a student and teacher of mathematics for most of my life, I have found that mathematics is both a challenging and beautiful subject. Although gaining new knowledge in the field is almost always frustrating, it is highly rewarding as well. A knowledge of mathematics improves logical thinking, provides a gateway for learning other subjects, and is commercially useful.
Mathematics is best learned by solving problems. Students should be guided toward finding the answers for themselves. As a teacher, it is my responsibility to use my expertise by asking guiding questions that lead the student toward the answer. Carefully chosen and tiently worked examples can provide a template for problem solving. Whenever possible, lectures should include time for working through examples.
