About Vishal

I have taught Mathematics and Science in a classroom setting for two years and have tutored students from the elementary grade levels up to the college level for the past eight years. I hold two undergraduates in Engineering (Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering) as well as a Master of Science in Structural Engineering.

As a high school teacher in both public and private schools I have developed effective and innovative teaching methods. As an Engineering instructor at the community college level I have enjoyed teaching students who are preparing for an exciting Engineering career.

I specialize in Math and Science subjects from the elementary grade levels to the college level. I also have experience tutoring all topics in the SAT, ACT and GRE.

I am available for in-person or online tutoring at the following times:
Monday - Friday mornings and afternoons/evenings on Fridays and Sundays.

I enjoy helping students achieve their academic goals and I bring tons of enthusiasm to each session! I look forward to working with you and helping you succeed in your academic career.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

AutoCAD

I have used AutoCAD during my professional and academic careers as an Engineer since 2006. I have worked at Architectural and Engineering firms to create construction drawings for projects ranging from mechanical equipment to high rise structures. Additionally I have training in the software through my Engineering undergraduate and graduate coursework and currently teach a course in 3D modeling to Engineering students at City College of San Francisco.

Elementary Math

I have tutored students in grade levels K-12 and in college, for the past 8 years. I've also taught 6th grade and 9th grade mathematics in public schools in Chicago and Detroit.

Great teaching method — My lesson with Vishal was great! He provided an approach to Algebra that no other tutor had. He is personable and patient. His explanations are clear and concise. I will definitely schedule with him again. I feel very confident that with his help, I will pass this class. I am actually looking forward to my test next week. ...
