Patient and knowledgeable tutor specializing in math and science subjects.
I hold a master's degree in medical sciences and a BS in biology. I am 33 years old and currently work as a full-time tutor.
Despite some positive reviews, I am not a hard-core, know-it-all tutor; in fact, there are many times I have to refer or review material myself. For me, being HUMAN, but striving for knowledge, is most important and most legitimate. I try to customize my approach and lesson plans according to the student's needs. Everyone is different with their individual learning styles, and so I will try to adjust to a style that is right for you. A majority of the sessions involve simply addressing material students already have from school and working through and understanding this material. I often email students with worksheets for extra practice, and at times create games or use powerpoint to supplement the sessions.

Gita is very caring, responsible and thorough. She teaches the whole subject before solving the problems. She is very patient and clear. Gita has been working with my daughter since March 2011. She started teaching Biology and since she was a very effective tutor we asked her this summer to tutor math to prepare our daughter for SAT exam in October. My daughter says she wishes we had found Gita few years ago.
I highly recommend Gita and I am planning on working with her for as long as my daughter needs a tutor.
Gita is a great tutor. She knows the material very well, and has strong teaching methods. My daughter felt very confident with her chemistry, thanks to Gita.
Gita has been extremely helpful with my daughter as she assists her with Chemistry and Algebra II. She really goes above and beyond by asking what the lesson will cover in advance so she can prepare appropriate materials for my daughter to work on and so that the lesson is maximized. According to my daughter Gita has a very clear way of explaining difficult topics so that they make sense. Thank you Gita!
Gita is an excellent tutor. My daughter is in an honors algebra 2 class, it's a very rigorous curriculum, and being tutored by Gita has kept her at the top of her class (A's in homework and tests). Gita is very personable, and extremely patient and consistent; she goes the extra to help my daughter succeed. My daughter has had other Math tutors for algebra and geometry, and she has proclaimed Gita as the "BEST TUTOR" ever. We are so grateful and fortunate to have her as a tutor.
Gita is the best tutor my kids have ever had. She is devoted to her students and has a gift of explaining concepts so they understand. My daughter has come home from school totally confused with homework and after an hour with Gita she has felt so much more confident with the subject.
FANTASTIC tutor!! Very intelligent and reliable. Easy to work with and makes herself available to meet your needs. Highly recommended.
Gita explains the principles of math (honors geometry) in a way my daughter can relate to. It's wonderful to see the light bulb go on and new
We have had several tutors in math and science, all were good but for some reason my daughter still experienced some difficulties. However, when Gita tutored her, that all changed. Gita really worked hard with her, made sure she understood the concepts, went over tests and homework to insure a complete understanding. Gita is patient and really cares that her students understand. But most importantly, she is willing to take the extra time and measure the learning with quizzes and other tools. It makes a difference to have a tutor that wants you to learn and understand. Overall, I think that Gita is an excellent tutor, your student will see improvements in learning and understanding science/math concepts.
My son has had difficulty in math (Geometry, Algebra 2, etc.), since entering high school. He had multiple issues blocking his success such as a lack of confidence, motivation, ADD and some poor teaching. Gitanjali was able to break down the material in a way that allowed him to easily grasp concepts, while simultaneously building his confidence. As a result, he became a stronger math student receiving many A's and B's on quizzes/tests as opposed to D's or failing grades. She reviews the lesson material before each session and is not satisfied until the student masters the content.
I would like to impress my feelings and to thank Gitanjili P. for the effort that she did while teaching my son with an incredible devotion, kindness and knowledge.
Gitanjali is a committed tutor and very focused. She is able to clearly translate objectives to a series of actionable tutoring steps and execute them. She is flexible, patient and knowledgeable in her subject matter. I would highly recommend her for your tutoring needs
I appreciated how flexible and diligent Gita was with my son's schedule. Gita was able to successfully review 6 months worth of material with him in 3 weeks. I highly recommend Gita for a math tutor.
Gita has been one of the best tutor's we have had. She tutors two of my children in math and biology. She is extremely intelligent, always knows the subject matter and is able to explain it to the kids so that they can understand. She is very patient, pleasant and very dependable. She is always on time and does whatever she can to come at the best times for us.
Like any other parent, we were cautiously optimistic in the beginning. Boy, did Gita deliver the goods. In a matter of two months, she transformed our daughter from a C- student to an A student. Her grades in Geometry and Chemistry sky rocketed and the teachers are amazed by the rapid 180 degree turnaround.
If you need a patient, well qualified, dedicated ally, Gita scores top marks, bar none! Gita's tutoring is exceptional and she truly is the consummate professional. Previous tutors simply regurgitated copy from the textbook. Gita goes above and beyond the call of duty. In her tool box, she brought a Chemistry "jeopardy" game AND a typed outline AND additional practice quizzes. Even my daughter's teachers wanted to xerox the notes and use them as a study guide for the class!
Long term plans are to have Gita help with trig and calculus and then SAT/SAT II prep work, and more than likely, start Algebra with our son asap! As long as Gita wants, she will have a place in the family.
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.
I spend a lot of my time on the computer with online tutoring and other tasks. This experience has allowed me to master general computer usage such as opening and closing software, organizing hard drive, managing files and folders, microsoft office, online searches, email, etc. In today's fast-paced society, it is critical for people to gain skills in general computer usage. The internet is an incredible source of information . . information that may have once been inaccessible by some people. I love to help people take advantage of the resources provided to us by computers.
Having a MA in Medical Sciences and a BS in biology has given me much exposure to genetics. I can help you with population dynamics, the punnett square, pedigrees, Mendelian Inheritance, and other concepts related to gene linkage and meiosis.
