I am a graduate of Rutgers who majored in Physics and Mathematics. I have over 3 years of tutoring experience. I have also been a teacher at the Center For Talented Youth, through John Hopkins University, teaching rising 8th graders and high school students mathematical modeling.

I have tutored at the college-level at the Rutgers Learning Resource Center and have privately tutored students from elementary school to high school. At the Rutgers Learning Resource Center I tutored small groups in problem solving, theoretical content and scientific methods for undergraduate science classes. I have tutored from Algebra to Calc-III at Rutgers in addition to chemistry at times.

I have also had a great deal of scientific experience and have worked around the world on different physics projects. I have been to Germany, Poland, Canada and still do research locally at Rutgers. I have actively been involved with RUPA-The Rutgers University Programming Association throughout my college career and have served as VP of Finance on RUPA. (RUPA puts on events like RutgersFest as well as other events for the Rutgers community through the year).

As I am a tutor and a researcher, I try to implement elements of my research while tutoring. I feel students should try to approach new concepts by drawing on what they already know and thus extend their understanding. In the sciences, simply memorizing is not enough to learn how to apply a concept to a new problem. In mathematics, I feel the proper motivation and background is required when mathematics is being learned; otherwise it is quite frustrating to learn what can be a very abstract subject. I also feel that a tutor isn't simply there to teach information to a student but rather to draw on a students strengths and help them develop study skills and approaches to learn any new material they may encounter in their lives.

The AP classes I took in high school were the following:
Calculus BC,
Physics C (Electricity and Magnetism)
•Physics C(Mechanics)
English Literature and Composition,
AP Chemistry

Some math classes I have taken include the following:
•Calculus 1 and 2
•Multivariable Calculus
•Ordinary Differential Equations
•Partial Differential Equations
•Real Analysis (2 semesters) (Advanced Calc I and II)
Linear Algebra (2 semesters)
•Introduction to Probability
•Stochastic and Probabilistic Models
•Graph Theory
•Linear Optimization
•Numerical Analysis
•Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning
•Theory of Numbers
•Advanced Calculus for Engineering
•Case studies in Operations Research
•Introduction to Mathematical Finance

Some of the physics classes I've taken include the following:
•Physics I, II
•Honors Physics III (Modern Physics)
•Quantum Mechanics
•Thermal Physics
•Solid State Physics
•Modern Physics Lab
•Circuits Lab
•Modern Experimentation

Algebra 1

I have been teaching Algebra since 2009. I have taught over 50 students in Algebra since that time.

As a math major, I have seen the material in Algebra on several different levels, which allows me to adjust to the level and nature of understanding for each student. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions!

Calculus

I've been teaching Calculus since 2008, both at Rutgers and privately. I have had over 30 students for Calculus over the years.

I teach both the AP Calculus tests and college level calculus. Several students have done very well on the AP test, scoring 5's on the AB and BC tests.

Differential Equations

I took Differential Equations in high school as well as in college. In addition to taking a semester of differential equations and one of partial differential equations, I took several classes on Advanced Calculus which are proof based classes where you fundamentally prove and construct the logical basis for Calculus and Differential Equations.

Discrete Math

I've taken graduate and undergraduate courses on graph theory, combinatorial theory, and linear programming among others. I've co-taught a course at the Center for Talented Youth at Johns Hopkins University on applied discrete mathematics.

Geometry

I have been teaching Geometry for over 5 years now. I realize it can be a strange subject for many students, it's the first time many will encounter formal definitions, proofs and logic. It is definitely a different flavor of math compared to algebra and arithmetic which many students are more comfortable with due to a longer exposure to those subjects!

Hindi

I have over 5 years of experience of living in India and have native fluency in the language. I can read, write and speak the language. I scored in the top 10 percent of the country when testing for Hindi on national examinations in India and also have a letter which states my fluency in the language from a Professor at Rutgers University.

Linear Algebra

I have taken a few linear algebra courses at the college level (Math 250 and a proof based course, Math 350) and received A's in both courses. In addition, as a math and physics major, I have regularly been using concepts from linear algebra in many different contexts and courses.

Logic

As a math major I have taken many courses which involve logic and also courses just on mathematical logic. I have also taken philosophy classes on logic as well.

Physics

I am a physics major and have been tutoring physics at the Rutgers Learning Center. I teach almost all levels of introductory physics.

SAT Math

I specialize in teaching SAT math section and feel that it is the easiest part of the SATs to coach.

I have had several students who have scored very well, around the 780 and 790 mark. Many have scored about 700 as well. Please email me for more details.

Very smart and extremely helpful! It was a pleasure to work with Vaibhav this semester for my Calculus II class at Rutgers. He knew all of the material right away and provided new, creative ways to think of concepts and learn the material. He went above and beyond our meeting times by providing me with extra materials to take home and practice what we learned during our lesson. I highly recommend him as a tutor. ...
