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 Math

This is beginning of career path. To begin with, I give Practice Test to the student. Then analyze the weak areas of the student and focus to overcome the weak areas. I tell my students the tricks to find the solution even if they don't know its solution, how to be smart enough to improve the numbers, etc.

Algebra 1

Algebra is the stepping stone of Math. Journey of Math begins with Algebra which can take any student to the heights and sky is the limit for that height. So, to make the foundation strong, I focus on making the fundamentals and concepts clear to the students. I provide customized work-sheets to the students.

Algebra 2

Algebra is my favorite branch of Math. I have taught more than 15 students in Algebra 2, including Honors, in various public and private schools like Harker, Logan, etc.

Calculus

I have 5 years of experience of teaching Calculus (including AP AB & BC) up to college level. This is new world of Math. It is really fun, though challenging if the concepts like limit, continuity, derivative, slope, antiderivative, etc. are clear to the student. So, I focus on making the concepts of Calculus clear to the student.
I provide customized work sheets, test examples, Free Response Questions, Practice Tests, etc., for extra practice.

Geometry

I have 5 years of experience teaching Geometry to several students of various schools including Harker School, San Jose Mission Schools. Proofs are the major challenges in Geometry. To overcome this challenge, I focus on "writing one proof daily" by the students. This helps a lot in getting mastery in proofs.

Hindi

I am born and brought up in India. I studied Hindi in high school and was taught in Hindi throughout my academic career. I can read, write and speak Hindi fluently.

Prealgebra

Pre-Algebra plays an important role in the development of a student. It is the stepping stone to the world of Math. It is the basis of Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Claculus and Calculus. I focus on making the basics strong through customized work-sheets. At this stage, child learns well in a pleasant atmosphere. I make sure that child is active throughout the class.

Precalculus

Pre-Calculus is bridge between algebra and Calculus. It is stepping stone to prepare for Calculus. Trigonometry plays an important role in Pre-Calculus. I keep check on the progress of the students through tests and homework.

QuickBooks

I have worked in a nationwide Bank in India for more than 20 years. There my main job was accounting. Ledger Entry, Customers, ledger entry record keeping, reconciliation of statements, preparing financial statements etc.

SAT Math

This is beginning of career path. To begin with, I give Practice Test to the student. Then analyze the weak areas of the student and focus to overcome the weak areas. I tell my students the tricks to find the solution even if they don't know its solution, how to be smart enough to improve the numbers, etc.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry pays an important role in Pre-Calculus and Calculus . Trigonometry is my favorite subject. I have expertise in this subject. I give small - small but valuable tips to solve triangle, law of sines, law of cosine, verifying identities and graphing, etc.

Last year, there was a girl student from San Jose Mission School having trouble with geometry. She started taking lessons from me during the middle of the academic year because she was struggling with geometry proofs. Immediately after beginning, I told her some important points/hints about proofs in geometry and suggested her to write at least one proof daily. She listened to my advice... read more

In 2007, there was a Geometry student at Challenger School. He was indeed a bright student, but he made careless mistakes. Hence he couldn’t secure a good score in the tests/examination. Immediately after I started tutoring him, I tried to find out the cause of his careless mistakes. I was able to figure out that it was due to two reasons: 1) Skipping steps 2)... read more
