I love to teach and have taught high school, undergrads and graduate students for more than 13 years.

I believe in having a friendly and enthusiastic interaction with my students. My aim is that they feel the same enthusiasm learning the subjects taught as I do teaching them. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to inspire students to pursue subjects with passion instead of considering it yet another chore to complete.

I understand that every student is different and so their needs may be different and so I work according to their individual needs.

When it comes to tutoring, my aim is that the students understand the basics completely so that they can build upon it by themselves, needing lesser and lesser guidance with time.

I believe that the students need to get correct information and try to answer all questions I may already know. When I am unsure of something, I try to research the topic and get back to the student with the correct information. If the scope of the subject is beyond my realm I try to guide the student to other teachers and resources I know of.

I have a masters degree in computer science and have been using C since 1997. I have done some projects in C in the past before graduating to C++ and Java.


1. Graduate degree in computer science
2. More than 10 years experience using C++
3. More than a year of industrial experience in C++
4. Have experience teaching graduate and undergraduate C++ programming classes

I concentrate more on basics and preparing the student to build on it on his/her own. I also believe in a lot of practice and practical classes. What and how I teach will more depend on what the student wants and how the student is comfortable learning. I prefer students who have an urge and enthusiasm to learn over those who don't. Liking the subject is not a necessity because I am hoping to make it likable for you.

Computer Programming

I have a masters degree in computer science and have been in the field since 1997. I am currently pursuing a PhD in computer science. I also have more than 7 years of industry experience in IT including a lot of programming in C, C++, Java and Python . I have taught computer programming subjects to both undergraduate and graduate level students.

Discrete Math

I have a masters degree in computer science and have been in the field since 1997. I am currently pursuing a PhD in computer science. I have taught computer science subjects to both undergraduate and graduate level students. I studied discrete math during both my undergraduate as well as my graduate studies in computer science and did well in the subject.

General Computer

I have experience/ skill/ degree and certifications to be able to teach computer science. My specialization has been Artificial intelligence, though I would love to get down to the basics. I believe basics and making the most complicated subjects look simple by giving a lot of illustrations. People who I have taught computer science from scratch, just to give examples, are-
1. My parents, who had to be taught from switching on a PC, then to emails and searching for information, downloading/ uploading, chatting, maintaining their files, preparing documents, organizing financial information to playing games :)
2. A few language scholars in India, who had very little exposure using computers. I taught them programming so that they can build their own software!
3. Little kids in the country side who had not handled a computer before

For advanced skills, I have given undergraduate classes on Artificial intelligence, Object Oriented programming, C++, Java, UML and Computer Architecture. I have also helped my friends at school learn concepts of most computer science related subjects.


I am a native speaker of Hindi and have formal high school level education in Hindi. I grew up in northern India, where the main language spoken was Hindi. Hindi is one of the languages we speak at home as well.


I have a double masters degree in computer science and have been in the field since 1997. I am currently pursuing a PhD in computer science. Logic was an integral part of my curriculum in both my graduate studies. My area of specialization during my masters was a research on different schools of logic and how they affect computer science.

Microsoft Access

I have a masters degree in computer science and have been in the field since 1997. I am currently pursuing a PhD in computer science. I also have more than 7yrs of industry experience in IT where I have used databases. I have taught computer science subjects to both undergraduate and graduate level students.

Apart from having theoretical knowledge of databases like MS Access, I have also extensively used it at work.

Visual Basic

As far as my education goes, I hold a dual masters in computer science and am pursuing a PhD in the same subject.

As far as VB goes, I have used it in many of my projects at work place. My general programming skills are very good and my basics are clear. I also have experience teaching, so teaching visual basic is both easy and fun as far as I am concerned.

Web Design

I have dual Masters in computer science and am pursuing PhD in the same subject. I have experience working in the field and teaching to graduate level students.

I have been involved in web designing in particular since 2000. My specialization during my undergraduate study was web designing and I was awarded the best project award for my design.

Every now and then, I also build websites particularly for the business I run.
