## Personal Description:

Energetic and enthusiastic, I have a keen sense of observation and I am a critical problem solver. I have a rich academic experience, being a teacher as well as a researcher for more than 15 years. Besides my doctoral degree in Mathematics, I am also trained in Statistics (at PhD level). I value teaching and input from my students, and I pay close attention to their development and achievements. I love travelling and I am a fan of zoos, natural history museums and animals societies. I use computers and technology very easy, and I worked in software and IT management.

## Tutoring Experience:

I taught high school and university level in Romania for 5 years, especially in Computer Science and Math Foundations, as well as Logic. Then I moved to the States by starting in a PhD program. During my stay in United States, I taught college level courses for 9 years, including special programs for talented youth or for tuition. Subjects covered were: Algebra, Number Theory, Calculus, Discrete Mathematics, Business Calculus, College Algebra. in 2010, I went back home, as a visiting professor in applied maths and statistics for one year, at a private university. I arrived in UK for a second PhD program at Durham university in 2011, where I taught Statistics, Discrete Mathematics, while getting trained as a PhD student in Statistics. I teach now at CATS College, Cambridge, GCSE, AS and University Foundation level maths

## Tutoring Approach:

I usually prefer one-to-one interaction with students… however I welcome group studies. My tutoring is usually aided by computer even if I am still a paper-and-pencil tutor. I pay attention to students approach to solving Math problems and to their strengths in building up strategies for achieving their goals.

**From Wendy ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*Mihai prepared well for each lesson. He explained very patiently in details. It proved to be useful tutoring. Thank you!

From Artculeo (5/5):(University Maths)Mihai is an outstanding mathematician, and as importantly an excellent, dedicated tutor. Our daughter needed to work some Maths for two resits. We particularly appreciated the fact that Mihai helped her to systematically cover the material and enticed her to complete more exercises to create automatisms, to avoid any risk to fail at the exam. Also, at all time, he tried to help her become an independent learner.
