My tutoring experience and educational credentials:
Hi! My name is Niru. Over the last twelve years, I have enjoyed working with hundreds of students and helping them perform better in school and college. I am very comfortable working with middle and high school students (in either one-on-one or small group settings). I have also helped many college students as a certified tutor at the Oakland Community College in Michigan.
As for my educational background, I have degrees in Physics and Electrical Engineering with minors in Math and Chemistry. I have acquired a deep understanding of Math, Science, and their practical applications. I have excellent oral and written communication skills in English. Having lived in the United States the last 20 years, I also have an appreciation for different ethnic backgrounds and cultures.
Tutoring approach and philosophy:
First and foremost, I make myself approachable so that the students feel comfortable in asking questions and communicating with me. I make an initial assessment of the students in order to tailor my tutoring method to be most effective for their learning. My general approach is to help the students break down large problems into smaller modules to ensure a step-by-step way towards the solution. I strive to keep each and every tutoring session relevant to the subject matter, interesting, and understandable. I help students with mastery of concepts and development of good analytical skills. I also encourage students to foster good study habits to ensure success, better self confidence, and self esteem. Lastly, I make it a point to keep the parents informed of the student's progress, and I always welcome valuable feedback from them.
It is my firm belief that education is an important and ongoing process for students of all ages and levels, and I am confident that I can continue to make a big difference in students' learning. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
