Hello, my name is Niru. My expertise is math and science. I have taught college classes in math at University of Phoenix and University of LaVerne. At home I provide private tutoring for CBEST, algebra 2, college algebra, Calculus, trigonometry, and SAT Prep. For more than 20 years, I have been tutoring math, and science. In addition, I have tutored many adults for CBEST examination. All my students improved and passed their tests. One of my calculus students improved dramatically, by two letter grades (from grade D to A).

One-on-one tutoring is very rewarding for me. I motivate my students with patience and love. Try one session with me and you will not regret it. I'm a committed, punctual and caring individual. We'll work together to customize a strategy for your child and plan as a team. It's amazing how much impact a private tutor can have in mathematics or reading, particularly in the first few weeks. And when the grades start improving, it can be a fun process too.

As I have taught Algebra 2 at Phoenix Univ., I am very familiar with difficulties students face in comprehending the underlying math concepts in Algebra 2. My approach to remedy is to use visual and graphic techniques in soloving the problems. This successful approach inspires students to become confident and improve their grades rapidly while enjoying tackling Algebra 2 problems.
I have about 15 years of experience in tutoring math to students individually and in small groups.

Biostatistics

I have been tutoring statistics for the past ten years. Biostatics is a subset of statistics and is used extensively in the medical field.
I have been tutoring biostatistics to CSULB nursing students in Long Beach, Ca for whom this subject is mandatory. I have used visualization through graphs and charts which has proven as very effective tools to tutor this subject. As a result, my success rate with these students has been around 90 percent.

Calculus

Calculus involves differential and integral calculus. Differential calculus concerns itself with rates of change. Integral calculus deals with generalized type of addition or amalgamation of quantities.

As an math major I am able to clarify these concepts using graphs, charts and detailed explanations of underlying math principles. As a result, I am able to connect the calculus problems with everyday problems in life.

I am a chemical engineer. As a result, I am thoroughly familiar with the subject. Chemistry includes balancing equations, understanding the structure of different elements and their properties. In addition, one has to become familiar with the practical use of chemistry in the industry. A carefully-paced approach with plenty of explanations and examples help in becoming comfortable with the subject. As a result, students enjoy tackling chemistry problems as part of classwork and homework.

Differential Equations

As a degreed Chemical Engineer, I am very well versed in Differential Equations. This topic is part of Engineering Mathematics. In addition, I have tutored college students in differential equations successfully over the last ten years.
My strategy to teach this subject is to use graphs and charts to clarify the concepts of this subject. As a result, students become confident and are able to apply the concepts to solve problems with minimal outside help.

Discrete Math

Discrete math is the study of sets, partitions, systems of linear equations, probabilities, matrix algebra and applications, probabilities, linear programming, modeling and graphical solutins, random variables and principles of statistics.
During my tenure at Phoenix university, I have taught discrete mate (finite math) to business students. Discrete math helps students to organize information and then analyze it. It allows to gain a valuable insight into mathematical model buiding. As a result, they become proficient in business related analyses such as break-even analysis or depreciation analysis.

Electrical Engineering

I have master's degree in Engineering. My practical experience includes 25 years of project work designing petro chemical plants and refinery. As part of this effort, I performed designed work in the field of electrical engineering. This design included sizing electrical powerlines, switch gears and motor control circuits. In addition, I have field experience of testing generators, transformers and motors. This required thorough knowledge of electrical schematics and relay logic. I also have helped students in building power system for robots.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have elementary education credential, and I have taught elementary prek-6 grades for several years in private schools. I have open court training in phonics and Marilyn Burns math training. I am proficient in elementary subjects: reading strategies, reading enrichment, literature, writing, math, science, and social studies. I have successfully tutored elementary students. My gentle and calm approch help young children enjoy learning with me. I am prolific reader and writer. I assure you that your children well excel with my unique strategies.

English

During my education, I have taken many classes in English language development and teaching strategies to support ESL students. I have also taught CBEST examination Preparation classes. In my private tutoring, I have improved many students and was instrumental in making sure that they pass the examination.

ESL/ESOL

I'm native English speaking. I've studied abroad and learned few languages such as: German, Hindi, Gujrati. I have received an M.A from Germany. I've natural talent for languages. I've also translated chemical companies' technical work into English. I teach language with pictures, vocabulary cards, realia, video clips and gestures. In addition, I provide appropriate communication opportunities for my students.

Geometry

As geometry requires visual and hands-on practice, I provide three dimensional folding models to explain geometry concepts. I also apply geometry concepts to real world situations such as buildings, containers, fields and real objects.
Teacing is my passion and students are my number one priority. In addition, by profession I am an engineer and I use these concepts in my daily work.

Grammar

I have a master degree and I've taken many classes on Mechanics of English Grammar and Writing. I also have taken classes in strategies to teach ESL students. I've written some articles in few magazines. I have taught for the University of Phoenix and I tutor students to succeed in passing CBEST test. I have also helped students to improve their scores in SAT and ACT

Hindi

I am qualified to teach Hindi because it is my native language and I have taken Hindi literature courses during the college years.
In addition, I had worked as a Hindi translator in Germany for the Automobile Association of Motorists. I am fluent in speaking, writing, and reading Hindi.

I have extensive training in phonics. I make up phonic games and challenges to make phonics interesting for students. My Open Court phonics training helps me to guide students to use sound spelling cards. I use phonics their way and word wall to increase their awareness of phonics.

Prealgebra

During my tenure with Phoenix University, I have taught classes in pre-algebra and algebra. In additon, I have taught middle and high school students in pre-algebra and algebra and prepared them for SAT tests. As a result, I am capable of improving the score within few sessions.

Precalculus

As precalculus includes the solutions of linear and quadratic equations, irrational fraction simplification, basic coordinate geometry and basic trigonometric functions, it is necessary to clear these concepts using graphs and charts. This approach helps students in tackling precalculus problems comfortably. In addition, I use a carefully paced approach with lots of explanations which provides tremendous help to students to conquer the fear of precalculus.

Reading

I use reading strategies such as: visualization, making connection, look for authors' purpose, summarize, find cause and effect relation, and compare and contrast. Reading literature has helped my students to become proficient readers. I also read aloud to students to practice the above mentioned strategies to enrich their reading skills.

Statistics

The study of statistics involves random variables, sampling, hypothesis testing, regression and quality control. As a result, it is necessary to have a very good understanding of basic math concepts and interpretation of data. I use graphs and charts to clarify the underlying math concepts. With plenty of explanations and examples, I make students feel comfortable doing statistics problems and enjoy the subject.

Study Skills

The study skills have several components: time management, handling priorities, organization of materials by subject matter or by concepts, and color coding.
Test taking skills play a very effective role to increase the test score as well as the understanding of the subjects.
Reading the questions prior to reading the material and underlining the words related to the questions and answers reduce errors and test time. By an elimination process, a student can increase the chance of getting the correct answer by 50%.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry involves functions of sine, cosine, and tangent. These functions can be best represented by graphs. These graphs help in solving trigonometric equations and identities. In addition, learning the fundamentals of cartesian geometry completes the study of trigonometry.

Writing

The purpose of writing is to engage certain audience in an appropriate subject. There are basically three types of writing: expressive, informative and persuasive. Expressive writing emphasizes the writer's feelings and reactions to the world, to people, objects, events and ideas.Informative writing focuses reader's attention upon the objective world, the objects, the events. Persuasive writing aims to sway the reader's opinions or attitudes, arouse the reader to action,or in some other way bring about a particular response.

I teach these three types of writings by way of brainstorming the ideas, arrange the ideas in a logical sequence and express each idea clearly. This is achieved by lot of explanations and practice.
