My name is Vijay and I have a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and a PhD in control systems. I am semi-retired so I tutor students in mathematics and physics. Students preparing for the ACT, SAT and AP courses require skills to pick apart a problem and apply the tools they have learned to arrive at a well reasoned solution. I have tutored college students from various disciplines who need to brush up or bolster their math and physics skills. My approach to tutoring is (1) teaching the underlying principles of the topic at hand (2) developing an approach to clearly understanding the key issues in a problem assignment (3) a step by step approach to a well reasoned solution. I like to make sure the students understand where they have gone wrong. Understanding a mistake is a big step towards not repeating it. I rely on positive encouragement and adding real world examples to make math and science interesting to the student. I like to tutor with the intention of preparing the student to become knowledgeable, confident, and with the right strategies, to do well at school and at standardized tests.
I am certified to tutor for Math and English sections of the ACT and SAT tests. I regularly tutor high school as well as college level students for Algebra I and II as well as calculus and physics.
I have a PhD in control systems engineering which positions me very well in the teaching of math and science subjects. My skills in English both written and spoken have been honed during my 35 years in private industry where I regularly wrote reports, business plans and made presentations.
The material covered in the Praxis tests is well within my grasp when it comes to preparing students to excel in this test.
I have taught pre-algebra leading up to algebra II and than calculus. My students do quite well at their school courses as well as standardized test. Students who are good at straight numbers quite often stumble when it comes to manipulating symbols. It takes a good teacher and practice by the student to become comfortable with symbols.
Wonderful Tutor — My son was very comfortable with Dr. Vijay G. almost immediately, and that is very unusual. He was comfortable enough with him to let his guard down to learn and enjoyed the lesson. He felt he was the best tutor he has had. We are so grateful for his help. Thank You. ...
