Hi! My name is Varun, and I am currently an Applied Mathematics Major at The College of New Jersey. I have been tutoring Mathematics and the Sciences for about 6 years now, covering subjects ranging from Algebra I, Chemistry, Physics, Calculus and Linear Algebra. In addition to tutoring students on a one to one basis, I have also worked at a private tutoring center assisting a group of 4-6 students at one time. I will be happy to give references upon request. An interesting fact about myself is that I had the opportunity to tutor inmates at the Jones Farm Prison in Trenton, NJ, helping them master material to attain their G.E.D.
In order to effectively help a student reach his or her academic goals, it is vital that a course of action is established with that student, with a problem-oriented approach being utilized. Rather than spending crucial time lecturing the student on the course material, it is important for tutors to spend the majority of their time working through problems, and seeing where the student is struggling. This is accomplished through the use of tutorial videos that the student can use to refresh the material on their own time, practice problems that are relevant to what is being taught, and practice tests to ensure that the material has been mastered, and to recognize any areas that need more improvement.
Some of my accomplishments in the field of Mathematics have included a PSAT/SAT Math score of 800 and 790 respectively, being a 2 time AMC regional Mathematics Competition champion, and attaining 5's on the AP Macro/Micro Economics and BC Calculus Exam
I have enjoyed tutoring Math particularly because my love for it. Sharing that with other people has been a great experience, and something I still take joy in doing. I look forward to working with you/your child!
Other Hobbies:I am an avid traveler, and enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
