I am Sushanta. I am a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India. IIT Kanpur is among the very best tech schools of India with an acceptance rate less than 3%. So getting into IIT Kanpur is more difficult than being accepted at Harvard or Stanford.
If you are a high school student or a college student I can help you improve your grades and also improve your scores on standardized tests like SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT etc. I am very confident as I have done this for thousands like you over the last 25 years. It is easy for me to diagnose quickly the learning difficulties you are facing and to help you overcome those.
The way to academic excellence is very simple. All you have to do is start learning the basic principles. Once you follow this approach learning becomes fun and your confidence level improves. But for doing well in exams just learning the basic principles is not enough. You need to solve problems quickly and correctly. To develop this skill you need practice. But there are so many problems in books and so many subjects to master within a short period. How do you manage you time? Here I can help you. I have the ready sets of problems which give you the right kind of practice within your time frame.
I can teach you many subjects. They are Math (geometry, trigonometry, algebra, calculus etc),Statistics, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering mechanics (Statics, Dynamics), Strength of materials, Thermodynamics and heat transfer, Fluid mechanics, Electrical network analysis, Discrete Time Systems & Signals and computer programming in C, C++, Java and Python.
I am very friendly with all my students. But that does not mean that you can get away with not doing your homework. I help you every possible way to finish it in time and I give you a few more. I give you and your parents feedback about your progress on a continuous basis.
I hold myself to a high standard. I do not charge you for a tutoring session unless you and your parents are 100% satisfied with it.
I am flexible with time. I allow rescheduling of classes under special circumstances. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy and offer make up classes too.
I don't mind traveling to another place for the student's convenience.
I look forward to hearing from you. In me you get a friend, philosopher and guide who can help you achieve your academic goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Science

A good score in ACT science gives a student so many more career options. Doors to science and technology courses open and a degree in such courses leads to a high paying job in a tech company. With some business acumen a tech graduate can start a business of her own with very little capital. So life is much better with a decent ACT science score.

Algebra 1

Only a trained mind can absorb higher mathematics. Algebra is the starting point of the training. Algebra 1 is the entry point for algebra. Even if you do not have a good grounding in prealgebra you can make it up by learning algebra 1 well. Any shortcoming in algebra 1 may create a lot of problems when you start learning algebra 2. I taught algebra 1 to many students. I advise a lot of caution and extra effort in learning algebra 1. Math is fun once you master algebra.

Algebra 2

I have tutored Algebra 2 to many students before. Most of them have shown remarkable improvements in grades. Algebra, being the building block of higher mathematics should be learnt with lot of care. I try my level best to make the student understand the subject.



A review of one of my past students:

"What I really like about Sushanta is his dedication and an eye for the detail. He is very patient and derives everything from scratch. I was never afraid of asking a question no matter how silly it might be. I never felt so relaxed and comfortable with any other teacher. I wish him all the best."

- Angela G of Folsom, CA

ASVAB

ASVAB math poses a big challenge to many. But all that it takes to ace the test is a little preparation. Just learn the formulas well and then have a good practice. The topics that must not be missed are the following:
Priority rules for operations in algebra.
Circumference and area of a circle.
Exponents, fractions and factorials.
Inequalities and how the inequality sign changes on multiplication by (-1).
Simple interest.
Different kinds of numbers like imaginary numbers, prime numbers etc.
Patterns and sequences.
Rules for rounding.

The review of one of my students is as below:

Sushanta is an excellent tutor. Aside from being incredibly knowledgeable, he is prompt, courteous, and interacting with him is a pleasure. Highly recommended!

- Colin T from New York

Calculus

Calculus is the starting point of higher mathematics. It is an extremely powerful tool for solving problems. There is hardly any branch in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields which does not require an in-depth knowledge in calculus. Jobs in STEM are among the best paid ones. If one masters the basics well, calculus becomes very easy and enjoyable. Learn calculus for fun. You will have a good job as bonus.
A review from one of my past students:

"It is unbelievable! Two months back I was thinking of dropping my engineering major just to avoid calculus. And now I solve some calculus problems when I get tired after playing computer games.
Thank you Sushanta for making the impossible happen to me."

- Rim T from Plano Texas

Chemistry

I am especially fond of chemistry. This is because chemistry has taught me that the world we live in, although very diverse in every sense, is made up of only 90 natural elements. Even these elements are made up of just a few subatomic particles. So basically this whole world is made up of only those few subatomic particles. Chemistry is the gateway to many professional courses like chemical engineering, metallurgical engineering, microbiology, medicine, petroleum engineering etc.


The review of one of my students:

" Sushanta is very easy to work with. He understands a student's difficulties quickly and teaches accordingly."

- Jerry T. from L.A.

Differential Equations

A differential equation is some kind of a relation between a function of one or more variables and its derivatives. The derivatives are with respect to space or time and the function must be continuous. The relation is either known or postulated. Differential equations have very widespread application in fields like engineering, physics, economics, and biology. The solution of a differential equation is the set of functions that satisfy the equation. Simpler differential equations have solutions which are exact formulas. For others a solution is numerically approximated using computers.
With an engineering background I am fully qualified to teach this subject. In civil engineering, which is my major I used differential equations in structural mechanics, strength of materials and soil mechanics. As a tutor I have been teaching it to scores of my maths, physics and engineering students.

Geometry

Geometry is the precursor to 3D geometry, which has a lot of applications in civil engineering, mechanical engineering and architecture. Geometry knowledge is useful even in physics and chemistry. I taught geometry to many. Proving theorems and solving problems are equally important for learning geometry.

Mechanical Engineering

I have tutored the following Mechanical Engineering courses: statics, dynamics, strength of materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer. Statics deals with mechanical systems in equilibrium.

So, all a student needs to learn to master statics are force equilibrium equation and moment balance equation. Dynamics deals with accelerated particles and rigid bodies. Fluid mechanics deals with fluid at rest and in a state of motion. Thermodynamics is the study of laws of thermodynamics. Heat transfer needs a thorough understanding of conduction, convection and radiation of heat.

Physical Science

Physical science is the entry point of Physics and Chemistry. A sound knowledge in this opens the doorway for many professions like engineering, biotechnology and sciences. My advice to all students: "spend some time and learn this for a great career in science and technology".

Physics

Physics helps us make sense of some of the events in the physical world around us. To learn any subject one should have a desire to learn and physics is no exception. Every natural event follows some rule. Physics explains some of those rules. So interest in physics grows as one starts observing the nature. The job of a good physics teacher is to arouse the interest in a student. And once that is done learning the subject is pure and simple fun. Physics opens the doorway to many rewarding professions. Other than being a physicist one with good grounding in physics can become a mechanical engineer, an electrical engineer or a civil engineer.

Prealgebra

Algebra is the starting point of higher mathematics and prealgebra is the building block of algebra. So I attach extra importance in teaching prealgebra. I have taught many prealgebra students before. Those who learn prealgebra with me find algebra easy to learn.

Precalculus

Precalculus has everything that you need to know after you have completed algebra and before you have started calculus. Any casual behavior or slackness on your part in learning this will seriously damage your mathematics knowledge base. I have tutored precalculus to many. With sound knowledge in precalculus your areas of application of calculus get magnified. You become a much better mathematician, scientist or engineer.

The review of one of my past students:

"Sushanta is patient, very very competent and extremely caring.
He explains so well that complex things become easy to understand.
Previously I used to be a slacker. Now I enjoy my studies because I understand the stuff like never before.

Thank you Sushanta for you help."


- Sandy R

SAT Math

Score improvement in SAT Math is much easier than that in SAT English. All that you need is sound knowledge and a few hours of practice. I can make your Math knowledge free of any confusion and also can teach you those tricks, which make problem solving quicker. When you find Math easy to understand practicing it will be fun. I have helped many improve their SAT scores before.

The review of one of my past students:

"Sushanta has made my daughter love math. Now she is doing math all the time. I had to put a limit on her math practice hours so that she finds time for other subjects too."

- Mary A from Sunnyvale, CA

Statistics

Statistics shows us how to predict the future by studying the data available at present. It is the only scientific way of inferring about tomorrow on the basis of today. Statistics offers many exciting career options like data analyst, quality control, big data.

Trigonometry

The application of trigonometry is so widespread that it is practically impossible to learn physics or any engineering subject without sound knowledge of trigonometry. Solving trigonometry problems is so much fun I do it for relaxation. I have tutored this subject to many. Most of my students have improved grades and fallen in love with this subject.

The review of one of my students:

"Sushanta has changed my life. Math used to be the scariest thing on earth. Now after ten sessions with him I am addicted to math. I need to solve a few trigo problems to relax my strained nerves."
