BrainChild Tutor in Mathematics since June 2008. I have tutored students at various grade levels from 1st graders through college level students.
HobbiesI love teaching because I want to make the subject matter FUN and not just boring and dry. I am very clear and very patient. :D I also want to help students UNDERSTAND the material rather than simply learn how to finish the homework.

Henry is an excellent tutor. As I am sometimes anxious about math, his calm and kind demeanor helped ease my anxiety about Calculus 1. It is no easy feat to be both patient, clear in examples and adaptive to different kinds of learning styles. He explained difficult concepts in simple illustrations and used concise and clear verbal explanations- so that when I went in for my exams it was his examples I used to help me on the tests and not the instructors. Math can be intimidating because of the pompous and abstract way in which some problems are explained in texts, especially for Calculus and beyond. So, if you are wondering who to choose in order to truly understand mathematic concepts -go with Henry, as you will have many moments where he explains something and you wonder why the book or instructor did not teach it his way.
Henry tutored me in both multivariable calculus and differential equations, and he's terrific! He illustrates difficult concepts with simple examples and makes them accessible through clear, patient explanation. If you're confused about something, he'll work with you until you understand it. He's friendly, generous with his time, always prompt, and has an enthusiasm for math which makes learning fun. A great tutor, highly recommended.
He is a great tutor! Even though Calculus is a difficult subject for me, he actually made it enjoyable to learn. He’s very patient and understanding; he answers every one of the many questions I ask and makes sure I understand everything before moving on. Because of him, I was able to ace my calculus final!
