I have a natural aptitude for teaching since my childhood. At the same time, I love math and science. I studied Oceanography (PhD) and Meteorology (MS) which are highly mathematical sciences. That is how I became a scientist and worked at NASA and NOAA. However, I always taught students and thus helped my community; it did not matter whether I was a scientist or a professor. Professionally, I have been teaching for 14 years in universities (Millersville University, University of Dacca), colleges (Northern Virginia Community College, Cadet College), and in high schools (Rapid City School System). Even, I worked as a substitute math and science teacher in Loudoun County Public Schools for four years. I was awarded as the Best Teacher while I used to teach in the Cadet College, which is an institution of high school and junior college combined.

While I teach, I bring myself at the level of students, and explain each concept according to their comprehensive abilities. I evaluate students' strengths and weaknesses and figure out where they have difficulties; then I take a suitable approach so that they can overcome their difficulties with ease as well as they find interest in the topic and the subject in general. I keep things short, to the point, and I focus on the basics. Also, I teach some techniques with tips that help students to do math fast which most of American school do not teach.

I believe, all kids are smart, and each of them has thirst for knowledge. Some students have difficulties with academics due to some "boring" teachers who failed to show the beauty and to spark an interest in the subject. Thus, students needs help to rekindle their thirst for learning and academic success. I help them to spark their interest to satisfy their thirst in science and mathematics.
