My teaching motto:

There are no stupid questions. You can achieve anything you set your mind to. Practice makes perfect.

About me:

My first tutoring job was offered by my counselor when I graduated from high school. I worked as a tutor at a community college, where I was tutoring my fellow classmates and students with chemistry (General Chemistry I & II, Analytical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry I & II and Inorganic chemistry I & II) as well as mathematics (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus I and II). I tutor students of many ages, from the elementary level studying mathematics and science,to the college level of mathematics and science majors. My favorite subjects are mathematics and chemistry, at any level.

My specialty is one-on-one tutoring and group tutoring. My tutoring style has been described as patient, passionate, dedicated, and friendly. My students think of me as a friendly person, as I maintain that relationship so that it is easiest for them to ask me any questions without any hesitation as well as understand the material in a much more comfortable environment. I believe that nothing is hard to learn in education if it's done step by step and taught in a manner for the students to comprehend and apply to their daily lives.

Hobbies:

Tutoring is one of the avenues that satisfies my desire to increase interest in the subjects I teach, and to allow students to get more out of their education. I spend most of my free time with friends and family and sometimes I take my niece and her friends for picnic.

I love playing chess.

Algebra 1

It's been 6 years that I have been tutoring for algebra. I know all tricks and tips about teaching algebra since I learned it in India as well as in USA.

Basically, I start from current topics and decide weather they are missing some basic information or not by asking simple questions. If they are missing I go all the way back where it stared and fill in the gaps so math won't be magical and start making sense for the students.

####
Algebra 2

I got my algebra II teacher's recommendation. Algebra has always been piece of cake for me. Try me and it may become a piece of cake for you.

####
Chemistry

I have tutored lots of students in chemistry. All of my students have increased their grades at least by two letter grades, if they follow my lesson plan.

One of my high school student's grades jumped from F to A by the end of the semester.

####
Geometry

I have been tutoring geometry since 2008.

####
Precalculus

PreCalculus is a bridge between algebra and calculus and thus it is important to understand than memorizing. My goal of tutoring is to make my students passionate about the subject and help them learn how to study independently.

####
Trigonometry

I took trigonometry in community college and passed the class with letter grade A. It is a very easy subject you just need to know study tips.

####
Hindi

I had studied Hindi in India for six years. I have just completed a Hindi class at University of Houston with letter grade A. I can fluently read, speak and write in Hindi.

####
Linear Algebra

I have earned my B.S. in Chemistry with Mathematics minor from University of Houston, where I passed Linear algebra (2000 level) and Advanced Linear Algebra (4000 level) classes with the letter grade of A. Currently, I am tutoring my brother in Advance linear Algebra.

####
Organic Chemistry

I have received my B.S. in chemistry from University of Houston. I have received letter grade of A in both Organic chemistry I&II. While I was taking the class, I was tutoring my friends, which helped me gain confidence in the subject. I have also done some paid organic chemistry tutoring. I am currently helping one student in Organic chemistry II at UH.
