Bio

Teaching is my first love in life. I began my career as a Temporary Lecturer in my undergrad engineering college, teaching one of the most challenging of subjects: Electrical Materials Science. I then worked as a Visiting Faculty member at another such college between industrial jobs, and as an Instructor at LSU, teaching undergraduate students Numerical Methods and Turbo-PASCAL, while completing my Master's degree in Electrical Engineering.

Teaching is my first love in life. I began my career as a Temporary Lecturer in my undergrad engineering college, teaching one of the most challenging of subjects: Electrical Materials Science. I then worked as a Visiting Faculty member at another such college between industrial jobs, and as an Instructor at LSU, teaching undergraduate students Numerical Methods and Turbo-PASCAL, while completing my Master's degree in Electrical Engineering. After a couple of decades in the industry, I am getting back to what I love: teaching, tutoring.

I am an Electrical Engineer by training, serial entrepreneur by choice, and Technical/Mainstream Writer working to contribute to the industry and society. Yet, teaching has always been in my blood: I taught my siblings and cousins, and my classmates, in secondary school and college. Many of my prior students continue to remember the impact I've had on their learning and careers. This is perhaps the most rewarding aspect of such work.

As a tutor, I am simply returning to what I do best: teaching through problem-solving, critical thinking, active discussion, and the Socratic method.

I was honored to receive a rolling shield commemorating a FIRST in MATH in the All-India Secondary School Examination (148/150, a near perfect score) under the CBSE curriculum. I scored 2160/2400 in my Graduate Record Examination (with a perfect 800 in Math) and ~550/600 in TOEFL. Am tutoring my son for his SAT Math and English Reading/Writing preparation currently.

I've graduated with DISTINCTION in my undergraduate degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering. Defended and published my thesis on 'Self-Organizing Neural Networks in Signal and Image Representation' in my Master's degree in Electrical Engineering. I've also conceived and implemented numerous inventions throughout my career, gaining title to more than 40 US and International Patents.

Additionally, I've co-authored and edited TWO engineering books advancing an emerging area of integrated circuit design, in 2010 and 2014. A

As a graduate degree holder, and one who's scored 2160/2400 in my GRE (Graduate Record Examination), I've done my share of reading. I've also scored ~550/600 in my TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). Additionally, I am a writer (two engineering texts, and one mainstream novel) and hence an avid reader as well.

Knows his stuff

Raj is a very good tutor. Despite a couple of minor connection issues Raj was able to clearly explain and walkthrough several circuit problems while helping me better understand how the different pieces of the problem connected. At one point Raj was able to shorten a complex Thevenin resistance problem that would have taken another page of work down to one (very short) line of multiplication and division.

Hunter, 5 lessons with Raj

Fantastic tutor for both theory AND problem solving

Raj is a fantastic tutor for both theory AND problem solving, and even better, he combines the two so you actually understand what you're doing and why when solving problems. He is very patient and fun to work with.

Jake, 24 lessons with Raj

Great tutor!

Raj went over logic, asynchronous, and synchronous circuits with me for just a few hours on a Sunday, and I was amazed at how much greater understanding I had upon our session ending. Raj is very skilled at explaining difficult material in a simple way and helping it to "stick" in the student's mind. In addition, he was also very personable and made the session almost feel like you were having a conversation with a friend.

Will, 4 lessons with Raj

Circuits

Circuits has been one of the major difficult subjects for my daughter. Glad that I was able to reach out to Raj who has taught the fundamentals well. This foundation will certainly has helped my daughter to solve complex problems. Thanks Raj!

Anantha, 22 lessons with Raj

Well Prepared

Raj asked about what I wanted to learn before our session. He had done his homework and was prepared to teach. He helped clear up a lot of questions that I had. . Great tutor!

Jeffrey, 1 lesson with Raj

Patient and Very Knowledgeable!

Raj took the time to teach me the fundamentals needed to succeed in circuits. He is very knowledgeable and patient, he makes sure you understand the work before moving on. He showed up with some extra material that really helped break down the problems I was having. I highly recommend Raj to anyone taking Electrical Engineering courses!

Eddie , 3 lessons with Raj

Knowledgeable

Raj helped my son with his high school geometry and came off of his first session feeling like he got a lot out of it. We will be having more online sessions with Raj.

Ethan, 1 lesson with Raj

Very helpful and great

My son (11th grader) was struggling in all subject. Raj stepped right in an helped him understand. He went from lack of confidence and not finishing homework to TOTAL 360 turn around of FULL participation in all his subjects. He is proud of ability now. Thank you!

Dana, 5 lessons with Raj

Great method

My son is a difficult student who likes to challenge his teachers. He immediately liked Raj's teaching method and knowledge on all topics and now looks forward to the tutoring sessions.
