About Sankarshan

I am a recent graduate of the University of California, San Diego with a double major in Chemical Engineering and Applied Mathematics (GPA: 3.5 and 3.87 respectively for each major). And I am also a very experienced STEM tutor.

I have experience tutoring people of all kinds of backgrounds and specialties. From my sophomore year of high school, I have tutored people in many branches of math, physics, chemistry, and engineering.

The first person I tutored was a guy who needed to pass algebra II in order to get into Cal State San Marcos. I helped him pass Algebra II by going through all of the material with him so that he could learn it and ace his final exam. His Algebra II class was an online class with Brigham Young University.

My most recent and my most salient example was during my first year in college. During my first year, I tutored a guy in General Chemistry I, Differential Equations, and Physics I (for engineers). In the former, he was somewhat weak and he needed help in order to do as well as he desired in the course. In the latter, he was quite strong but he desired my help because he wanted to ace the course. By that time, I had taken many courses in math (up to Complex Analysis, Abstract Algebra, and Partial Differential equations in Cal State San Marcos) and science (especially physics) and therefore had more than proven myself to be a competent and knowledgeable tutor. Because of my tutoring, he did well in all of the courses that he came to me for help.

My teaching method is simple for making people understand STEM subjects: teach the underlying concept and then show that everything extends from the concept as an application. This is a common theme.

And then from there, I give problems to the people I tutor to help them understand the material on their own. This gives the client a chance to really make the material second nature.

I hold myself to the personal standard that the student I tutor get at least a B in whatever class they come to me for help.

I believe that punctuality, efficiency, and commitment are the gold standards of a tutoring session. That is why I want all my clients to call at least 12 hours before a tutoring session to ensure there is no friction in the schedule change.

I prefer to have online tutoring sessions (private and group). But if you need to meet me in person, I would be happy to arrange a meeting spot where we can see each other and hash out any problems we might have.

As you can see, I know my material. So come and request me if you want; I'd love to help you out.

I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

C

I have taken C++ in college. This course was used as an introduction to object-oriented programming. I have also used C# in my work. The language is similar.

Chemical Engineering

I have a degree from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) in Chemical Engineering with a 3.5 GPA. In UCSD, Chemical Engineering is part of the Nanoengineering department and we had to study alot with the Nanoengineers. I have tutored other students in Chemical Engineering subjects. Some of these subjects include momentum, heat, and mass transfer, chemical reaction engineering, thermodynamics, and basic chemical engineering computation courses. They have reported to me very strongly. I have also tutored people in courses that are related to chemical engineering and I have done very well.

Differential Equations

Starting from the time from Fall 2009, I have taken and tutored students in Differential Equations. I have also tutored people in Partial Differential Equations (a more advanced topic).

The way I teach presents the subject in an intuitive and accessible manner.

Discrete Math

I am a recent graduate of the University of California, San Diego with a double major in Chemical Engineering and Applied Mathematics.

I have taken a logic course during the Summer-Fall 2010 as part of my mathematics training.

As a mathematician, I have to be trained in logic in order to succeed. I also have to regularly use logic when proving theorems in the courses.

Part of my logic course included truth values and truth tables. I have also had to do proofs for DeMorgan's Theorem and many other theorems.

Econometrics

Econometrics is the subject in economics where one uses the principles of regression (linear and otherwise) and statistics for the purpose of modeling. There is also a substantial use of distributions (mostly normal).

As an Engineer and Mathematician, I have had to learn statistics to a very high degree (it was also calculus based). I have also have to use regression for the purposes of coming up with an approximate relationship for data.

Finite Math

I have knowledge of this subject from my mathematics background. As a mathematician, I have to take Abstract Algebra to graduate. In this class, we cover a substantial amount of finite math for groups and fields. The subject is especially covered for fields.

I also know the subject from personal study in number theory (most of number theory is finite math).

Linear Algebra

I was first introduced to this subject back in Fall 2009. I have also used this subject in conjunction with Differential Equations (the theory of Linear Differential Equations is based on linear algebra). I have even tutored students in this subject.

Logic

I am a recent graduate of the University of California, San Diego with a double major in Chemical Engineering and Applied Mathematics. Thus, I have taken this course during the Summer-Fall 2010 as part of my mathematics training.

As a mathematician, I have to be trained in logic in order to succeed. I also have to regularly use logic when proving theorems in the courses.

Examples include (but are not limited to) proofs by contradiction, bi-conditional proofs (if and only if), and conditional proofs.

Mathematica

I had to use this software for internship that I had from Aug. 2014 - Feb. 2015. This internship required that I solve partial differential equations as part of the required numerical analysis. I also had to use the software to plot the solutions. So I have a somewhat specialized knowledge of it.

R

I am currently taking a Data Science Specialization program in Johns Hopkins. All of the programming is done in R. I have to use R to write scripts to clean data. I also have to use R for computing purposes.
