Hi

I am an Electrical Engineer with a PhD from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with an excellent academic record (4.0 GPA in undergrad and grad school). I love math, physics and programming. I have taught undergrad courses in discrete math and graduate level courses in probability and statistics.

I am a patient and understanding tutor with a strong grasp of the fundamentals that allows me to adjust my teaching level and explanations to the ability of the students. Success breeds success, the saying goes, so it is important to gain confidence in order to understand and love Math. I would love to help you gain this confidence and attain a love for these subjects as I have.

Thanks,
Arvind

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

I assist in ACT Training classes conducted in Aurora and have experience with ACT Math and ACT English preparation.

C

I am an Electrical Engineer with a Ph.D. in Communications and Signal Processing. Apart from being trained in C & C++, I use both of these languages in my daily work, which involves computer simulations of complex cellular networks. Therefore, I consider myself an expert in C & C++.

Computer Programming

I am an Electrical Engineer with a Ph.D. in Communications and Signal Processing. I also have taught myself Python and have used it to create a GUI for processing of large amounts of data. Thus, I consider myself proficient in computer programming concepts like data structures and algorithms.

Linear Algebra

Over the course of my education (Ph.D. Electrical Engineering) I have done various courses that required knowledge of Linear Algebra. My Ph.D. thesis also involved the use of linear algebra. I consider myself well versed to expert in Linear Algebra.

Python

I am a self-taught lover of Python. I use Python to process large sets of data that I generate from simulations at work and produce meaningful results from these. I have also built a full communication system simulator in Python with extensions in C++ and written a GUI front end for processing large data sets that the Python simulator output across batch simulation runs.
