Jaber Janati
“My name is Jaber Janati. I am a student at Hunter College majoring in Computer Science with a minor in mathematics. I tutor mostly Computer Science courses up to the 200 level, and some math courses such as Calculus I and II. What I enjoy most about tutoring is helping students achieve that "aha" moment when they finally understand difficult material. I believe that every student has the ability to learn, but many become frustrated trying to grasp complex material. I like to break down and help explain these problems in a manner that is easy to understand.”

My one interest in tutoring is seeing the outcome of my tutees as opposed to just my income."
Michelle Li
"My name is Michelle Li and I'm currently an undergraduate at Hunter College majoring in Biochemistry and Statistics. A tutor is usually a private instructor who teaches one on certain subject areas. Not everyone understands what they learn the first time around so I would like to be the one who leads the student to their eureka moment! This feeling of satisfaction is why I like being a tutor. It's amazing feeling knowing that you were able to enhance one's knowledge. Although this is not going to change someone's life dramatically, it's still a huge deal for students to be able to build up their knowledge and confidence in the subject areas that I will tutor."
