I am an engineer by background. I hold an MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rutgers University, NJ.
I enjoy working with students (elementary, middle, and high school) and have helped a number of students become proficient and independent in many different subjects. The best part about tutoring for me is working with students one-on-one and knowing that I played a part in their academic success.
I stress fundamentals and go the extra length to make sure that students really understand the subject. Once the foundation (in the subject) is built, students start enjoying the subject and they don't need my help any more. Over the years, I have developed an approach to present the mathematical / science concepts in a easy-to-understand manner so the students are able to follow the subject easily.
Having worked for last 30 years in different organizations, I have been exposed to deal and operate in different kinds of business environments. A broad experience of working in different fields in different businesses has given me a background and perspective that I can convey to students to deal with different kinds of day-to-day business issues, problems and challenges. I can teach various aspects of doing business, e.g. conceptual ideas (to start a business), market research, different channels, response evaluation, start-up proposals etc..
Limits, Derivative Formulas for various Functions (SIN, COS, TAN, LOG, Ln, X^^a, A^^x, etc...), Derivation of derivatives from fundamentals, Derivative of Product, Summation, Difference, and division of Functions, and Integral Calculus
I have a vast knowledge of computer engineering subject as applied of basic computer functions e.g. hardware design, gates logic, computer software, compilers, operating systems, hardware - software integration, programming languages. Have also experience in assembling computers (Windows machines).
I have used computers for a long time, both at work and home. I have taken and passed courses in OS Design, Database Theory, Programming Languages, Data Structures, and have a number of years of field experience.
I possess experience in Fortran, C, Hardware Description Language, and EES and engineering equation solver.
I am a practicing engineer and I am used to solving differential equations in my day to day work.
Understanding the fundamentals of differential equations is easy and it can be fun as well.
I have done lots of math coupled with computer science which relies on binary algebra. In addition, I have studied Set Theory, K-Maps for binary algorithms and binary equations. Having worked for last 28 years, I believe I am well qualified to teach and help students in discrete math.
I have lived in US since 1982 and am familiar with TOEFL and American Language Institute's Language Tests for English. Being originally from India, I believe, I have the insight and knowledge to help people whose mother tongue is not English. Additionally, being an engineer by background, I take a logical and methodical approach to learning English.
Have worked with computers for last 20+ years. Have assembled my own computers.
Familiar with various aspects of computers, software, hardware etc.
Proficient with Microsoft Office Suite Software - Word, EXCEL, PowerPoint, Visio.
Familiar with Operating Systems - Windows, Unix
Programming languages - C, Fortran, Hardware Description language (MAST / VHDL)
Geometrical figures - circle, triangle, square, rectangle, cones, spheres, and their properties (area, volume, angles, periphery etc..). Pythagoras theorem.
I am originally from India, and Hindi is my mother tongue. I can certainly help anyone trying to learn to read, write or speak Hindi.
I have a solid background in numerical methods, scalar and vector algebra, matrix inversion and operations, and Jacobian.
I hold a BS in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Kanpur and a MS in Mech Engineering from Rutgers University, NJ. I have worked in the area of Mechanical Engineering for 25+ years.
I specialize in Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics, Numerical Methods, Thermodynamics, and HVAC Applications.
Setup the Spreadsheet
Graphs, plotting, and curve fitting
Use of Functions in Spreadsheet
Topics covered include: Mechanics (Friction, Forces, Torques, Linear/Angular Momentum, Newtons Laws of Motion (Linear/Rotational), Conservation of Energy and Momentum), Magnetism, and Electricity (Kirchoff's Law).
I work with the students using the standard practice books for PSAT. Generally, show the students strategies to take the test, solve problems quickly, make intelligent estimates and/or help the student as needed (clarify concepts).
SINe, COSine, TANgent, COTangent, SECant, and COSECant of angles. Trigonometrical Identities. SIN/COS/TAN of summation/difference of angles. Trigonometrical Equations and solution Methods. SINe and COSine Series.

Positive experience — We hired Atul to tutor our son in algebra. We only had a couple of tutoring sessions because of a conflict in my schedule and I had to find a different tutor for the time frame we needed. But with that said the sessions that we did have with Atul was great. He was very patient with our son and very effective. In fact, Atul helped him study for a very important exam and our son passed with a high B ...
