Hello prospective student/parent,

I am an experienced tutor specializing in math for all grades – right from the elementary grade to the undergraduate college level -, elementary English and undergraduate level accounting, finance and economics. I also help students in test prep, mainly SAT and GRE math. I can travel to areas near Gaithersburg – mainly Rockville and Germantown. I also take group lessons and my hourly rate will be adjusted according to the number of students in the group.

Since I work with students of all age groups, I take a different approach with every student. For elementary grade students, I bring my own prepared material to the lessons. My main focus for these grade levels is on reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, creative writing, logic and math. For high school students, I focus upon math and test prep. I teach AP Statistics, Algebra, Calculus BC and also SAT Math. For undergraduate college students, I focus upon their course content and help them get through the class by assisting on homework and computer assignments. I am well versed with SPSS, STATA, R, Minitab and MS-Excel for statistics students. I have taught accounting and finance up to intermediate level, and I can also handle microeconomics.

I began my teaching and tutoring 4 years ago. During this time, I have accumulated more than two thousand hours of experience both as an independent tutor and as a substitute teacher in MCPS. To get experience with the teaching methods of learning centers in the area, I also taught in two of the popular learning centers in Bethesda and Germantown. All of this exposure has given me a great insight into strengths and weaknesses of our comprehensive education system, and this knowledge helps me greatly when I work as a tutor.

My credentials include two masters degrees – an MBA in Finance and an MS in Statistics. I also have 5 years of corporate experience in the insurance and banking industry. I started as a data analyst and ascended to the position of a manager of the business intelligence operations in the Analytics department of one of the largest banks overseas. I left my job due to changing family commitments and decided to pursue teaching – an endeavor I have always loved.

The parents and students I have worked with have always commended me for my approachable and friendly personality. As a tutor, that’s the most important thing I bring to the table - I am good at creating a comfort level with my students so they can put their trust in me. My motto is to see my students succeed and I always go the extra mile for them when needed.

I offer very competitive rates for my expertise compared to other tutors in this area. Although I am flexible with my timings, due to increasing scheduling constraints, I require a 24 hour notice for cancellation of a lesson. Also, I require my lesson to be a minimum of 60 minutes.

I wish you the best in your studies.

Mrs. Swapna - Best Math Tutor I Have Ever Had!!! Let me first start off by saying: Mrs. Swapna, you are the best. I was taking a Probability/Statistics summer class at my school UMCP and needed this class to pass in order to graduate in 2015. When I first entered the class, I was struggling to understand the material and found myself needing a tutor. So my mom came on WyzAnt and started looking for tutors for me. We had about six tutors in mind ...
