3. Tutored Engineering undergraduates in Higher Engineering Mathematics: University of Toronto
My approach is tailored to each student' need. It is geared to help the student understand the fundamental logic or thinking process behind the problem.
Most often I have witnessed diligent students trying to jump to conclusion in mathematics or physics without grasping the fundamental behind the solut
Practice makes any skill perfect and it is especially true for Mathematics. I consult a variety of sources to pose challenging and interesting questions to my students so that she/he can think beyond his/her school syllabus and prepare for college/university admission.

I had got in touch with Sumon through FirstTutors when scouring various websites for tutoring assistance with Grade 12 Math for my son. Opposed to my expectation of the standard ‘to the point’ conversation when he first met up with my son and I, Sumon spent the whole time talking to my son, wanting to know his likes, wants, learning practices, future ambitions etc, all with the intention of customizing his tutoring approach. Going by what I hear from my son, Sumon’s approach is not focused on getting you from point A to point B, but ensuring you understand why you need to make that journey, what tools or means are available to you, and thinking for yourself of possible outcomes or solutions. Owing to this, my son now fully understands and enjoys his lessons, altering his way of thinking to focus on the approach and not just the end result (his words!!).
Again, I really appreciate and thank Sumon for his support and selfless dedication. His immense energy, enthusiasm, and passion for tutoring places him a class above the others in what he does. Greatly recommend and happy to provide reference whenever needed.
On marks: before Sumon took him under his wings (from Dec 2017) our son was averaging 78% in Math. Today, our son is on a consistent +92% - with his class (**Web Address Removed** 10) working at a median of 78% in Math.
Under Sumon’s guidance, we have seen our son continuously grown in self confidence, motivation and perseverance. Grateful to see the way his mind is strengthening by everyday while following Sumon’s schedule; this association has transformed our son’s personality while keeping him humble and stay focussed to the real goal.
Not only as a tutor but Sumon is a great mentor! He guides our boy to keep focussed and stay relevant to the future. With Sumon’s accomplished professional background in Canada, USA and India coupled with his discipline & education accomplishment; one cannot expect a better mentor than him. We would highly recommend Sumon for any student for continuous growth in their formative years at Math/ Science (Sumon also teaches Science for High School and beyond) to this every day changing world.
Again, we don’t know how to thank Sumon enough; it was difficult to comprehend all in short. Therefore, we reached out to our son for his sum up comments about his tutor. Below are his comments on his “mentor”.
* Helped me to increase confidence
* Kept me ahead of material taught in class
* Prepared us consistently with tests and quizzes
* Teaches me multiple ways to approach a problem
* He teaches me how to apply math to real life cases.

Thanks for your comments. It is quite humbling. It is a pleasure to work with Sheil.
He has a good approach on how to instill interest in Mathematics and very fair in assessing the needs and gaps in a student's knowledge.
Sumon is dedicated to making his students understand the math concepts and very methodical in his teaching. He spends extra time where required by explaining the unclarities and encourages students to come forward with any questions they might have.
Sumon is a dedicated, energetic and enthusiast tutor, always going the "extra mile" for the students to ensure theyhave a good understanding of the topics taught, following up on the homework and making himself available for questions in addition to the time allocated for the tutoring sessions.
humbled by your kind comments. Sincerely appreciated.
it has been a pleasure interacting with your family. Sincerely appreciate your kind comments and thank you for providing me with the opportunity. I thorough enjoy the sessions with Dino and will continue to help him succeed at all levels of mathematics.
