Thank you very much Dan for your response. I appreciate it.
Sushanta taught me today slope deflection method and 3 point moment analysis. He was very clear in his explanation and very knowledgeable. He helped me accomplish two methods of the 3 I have to learn for an exam.
Thank you Arturo for your feedback. Your desire to learn made the tutoring sessions so enjoyable.
The one thing fantastic about him is that he figures out the difficult questions and does not shy away from them. So, if you are trying to go from good to excellent, he is the perfect tutor!
Thank you Lokesh for your feedback. Your daughter is a quick learner. She will not have to try very hard to do well in life.
I and my friend are college students. We have been attending Sushanta’s physics tutoring over the last one month. What is striking about Sushanta is that he never needs any time to think about any problem that we bring in. It is as if the solution to all physics problems is known to him. He has an uncanny ability to split a complex problem into simpler ones and explain each part separately. In short, Sushanta is a terrific teacher with awesome knowledge. Highly recommended.
Thank you Abdul for your feedback. I appreciate it.
To be Honest, I have met with so many physics tutors before but Sushanta is the best tutor that I have met. He is fully knowledgeable person. He explained very well.
Thank you David for your opinion. I really appreciate it.
My son struggled with a lesson in Physics and his recent test grade reflected that. In hopes of bridging the learning gap, I looked up WyzAnt and saw Sushanta's Tutor profile and reviews. Not only did he respond quickly to my inquiry, he made himself readily available on a Sunday morning to work around my son's schedule and commitments. My son said that the 2 hours spent with Sushanta were great as Sushanta provided wonderful examples that applied the lesson, theories, and teachings in a way that was easily comprehended. In addition, he made the comparison that they had covered an entire chapter and he completely understood it in the 2 hour time frame unlike the entire week with his current teacher. Repeatedly, my son complimented Sushanta's approach and intelligence. Should we have another issue, we will definitely utilize Sushanta. Thank you, Sushanta, for helping us - you are FANTASTIC! We highly recommend Sushanta's tutoring services!!
Thank you very much Shawna for your valuable comments. Your son is a wonderful learner. His willingness to learn brought the best out of me.
I've been tutored by Sushanta for trigonometry a few times and he has been absolutely fantastic. He makes sure to reinforce the essential concepts while also explaining the reasoning behind said concepts. Come committed and ready to learn because Sushanta is a great teacher!
Thanks Logan for your review. You are intelligent and will surely scale great heights of academic success very quickly.
Sushanta is able to aid my daughter in the subject she's struggling in. Thanks to him, she gets Physics when before she was lost. Great tutor, highly recommended!
Thank you Surinderjit for your valued feedback.
Finally found a tutor with great knowledge of the Physics subject at an AP level. Very happy with the sessions and AP prep. Sushanta gives good examples of concepts, breaks them into simpler parts to understand, explains in depth with lots of detail and solves many problems to help my son with the subject. He is always on time and always prepared for the next lesson. Would highly recommend him!
Thank you Subansiri for your feedback. Your son is sharp and understands Physics. I think he will do very well in life.
Sushanta has a very good working knowledge of calculus and linear algebra. His lessons are concise and informative. You will pick up some good math skills from him. Thumbs up!
Thank you very much Admund for your review.
My daughter has been taking classes in Calculus and Physics, for tenth grade, from Sushanta and we will continue with him. It has been 7 or 8 classes and we are very happy with the way Sushanta explains, points out minute mistakes, which forces her to be detailed oriented.
It is not only the knowledge but the attention to the details, art of explaining, and transitioning to complex areas that also matters. I believe Sushanta does this very well and we are pleased with our daughter's performance and confidence level.
Thank you Vijay for your review. Your daughter is intelligent and will do very well if guided properly.
Our son has had 3 sessions with Sushanta and we've been pleased with all of them. He is very thorough. He showed our son different ways to solve a problem which my son really liked and our son is finding that one of those ways is actually easier for him to comprehend. We will continue to go to Sushanta for his assistance.
Thank you Heidi for your review. Your son is a sincere student and will surely improve a lot.
My daughter took classes with Sushanta in fall 2014 for Physics. He took time to get the fundamentals clear. He used variety of ways to get the concepts; practical application, quoting from the school book and going through the fundamentals as they worked on problems. This had put her in good footing on understanding and expanding the concepts learned. He was patient and persistent in teaching concepts. Thanks, Sushanta.
Thank you very much Vaidhy. Your daughter is super-smart and deserves the best.
Mr. Sushanta always explains thoroughly, and will show you where the concepts come from, not just how to do it. He knows a lot, and is very enthusiastic about math and physics. He cares a lot about the tutee's learning, and will help you understand the fundamentals really well.
Thank you Sheena for your review. Your daughter is smart and enthusiastic. I think she will do very well in life.
He is very helpful in teaching me what I need to know and when I need to know it. He also cares about how well I am progressing through the class and works extremely hard to help me succeed!!!
Thank you very much for your feedback. I appreciate it.
Mr. Sushanta C. has been teaching physics and statistics to my daughter for the last four months. He is always focused on her academic needs and is very knowledgeable. He takes time to explain the concepts and keeps the lessons going with ease. He is a wonderful tutor!
Thank you Parneet for your feedback. I really love every session with your daughter.
My daughter (high school senior) has a heavy AP load this year, and was struggling with AP Physics. Sushanta was able to quickly help her turn things around, and make significant improvement in her ability to deal with some of the basic concepts.
Thank you Amit for your feedback. Your daughter is smart and should not settle for anything less than an 'A' in AP Physics.
Sushanta tutored my kids, and they loved his teaching. My college freshman was very excited that all the grey areas in calculus were made clear in an hour, and she did very well in her test. My high school sophomore was able to fully understand the chemistry concepts for her chemistry honors class.
Thank you, Nike, for your feedback. Your daughters are intelligent and well behaved. They are a pleasure to tutor. Your testimonial proves that online tutoring is no less effective than face to face tutoring.
Mr. Sushanta is an excellent tutor. He is very good at teaching the concepts for whatever you are learning and makes them simpler to understand. He is very patient and leaves no stone unturned. Highly recommended.
In Sushanta I finally found someone who could show me calculus. I was having major issues with integrals and now I can understand this difficult subject.
We found Sushanta to be very warm and friendly. He seems to have a good grasp over the subject matter. My child will be going into 9th grade and Sushanta understood very well what he needed to do for him and how to gear his academics for our requirements. He seemed very confident and knowledgeable in doing what he needed to do for our son. I would definitely recommend him.
My son was very happy and comfortable with the style of Mr. Sushanta's teaching. We are going to schedule more classes for summer.
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.
A good score in ACT science gives a student so many more career options. Doors to science and technology courses open and a degree in such courses leads to a high paying job in a tech company. With some business acumen a tech graduate can start a business of her own with very little capital. So life is much better with a decent ACT science score.
Only a trained mind can absorb higher mathematics. Algebra is the starting point of the training. Algebra 1 is the entry point for algebra. Even if you do not have a good grounding in prealgebra you can make it up by learning algebra 1 well. Any shortcoming in algebra 1 may create a lot of problems when you start learning algebra 2. I taught algebra 1 to many students. I advise a lot of caution and extra effort in learning algebra 1. Math is fun once you master algebra.
I have tutored Algebra 2 to many students before. Most of them have shown remarkable improvements in grades. Algebra, being the building block of higher mathematics should be learnt with lot of care. I try my level best to make the student understand the subject.
A review of one of my past students:
"What I really like about Sushanta is his dedication and an eye for the detail. He is very patient and derives everything from scratch. I was never afraid of asking a question no matter how silly it might be. I never felt so relaxed and comfortable with any other teacher. I wish him all the best."
- Angela G of Folsom, CA
ASVAB math poses a big challenge to many. But all that it takes to ace the test is a little preparation. Just learn the formulas well and then have a good practice. The topics that must not be missed are the following:
Priority rules for operations in algebra.
Circumference and area of a circle.
Exponents, fractions and factorials.
Inequalities and how the inequality sign changes on multiplication by (-1).
Different kinds of numbers like imaginary numbers, prime numbers etc.
Patterns and sequences.
Rules for rounding.
The review of one of my students is as below:
Sushanta is an excellent tutor. Aside from being incredibly knowledgeable, he is prompt, courteous, and interacting with him is a pleasure. Highly recommended!
- Colin T from New York
Calculus is the starting point of higher mathematics. It is an extremely powerful tool for solving problems. There is hardly any branch in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields which does not require an in-depth knowledge in calculus. Jobs in STEM are among the best paid ones. If one masters the basics well, calculus becomes very easy and enjoyable. Learn calculus for fun. You will have a good job as bonus.
A review from one of my past students:
"It is unbelievable! Two months back I was thinking of dropping my engineering major just to avoid calculus. And now I solve some calculus problems when I get tired after playing computer games.
Thank you Sushanta for making the impossible happen to me."
- Rim T from Plano Texas
I am especially fond of chemistry. This is because chemistry has taught me that the world we live in, although very diverse in every sense, is made up of only 90 natural elements. Even these elements are made up of just a few subatomic particles. So basically this whole world is made up of only those few subatomic particles. Chemistry is the gateway to many professional courses like chemical engineering, metallurgical engineering, microbiology, medicine, petroleum engineering etc.
The review of one of my students:
" Sushanta is very easy to work with. He understands a student's difficulties quickly and teaches accordingly."
- Jerry T. from L.A.
I am a civil engineering graduate. I have experience working in structural and environmental projects. I have tutored students in engineering statics, strength of materials, mechanics of solids and fluid mechanics. In engineering statics we deal with systems in equilibrium. To ensure equilibrium the sum of forces in each of the three mutually perpendicular directions must be zero. Similarly sum of moments should also be zero. In strength of materials and mechanics of solids we find the shear stress and bending moment at any cross section of a structural member. In fluid mechanics we use Bernoulli's equation and the equation of continuity for streamlined flows.
A differential equation is some kind of a relation between a function of one or more variables and its derivatives. The derivatives are with respect to space or time and the function must be continuous. The relation is either known or postulated. Differential equations have very widespread application in fields like engineering, physics, economics, and biology. The solution of a differential equation is the set of functions that satisfy the equation. Simpler differential equations have solutions which are exact formulas. For others a solution is numerically approximated using computers.
With an engineering background I am fully qualified to teach this subject. In civil engineering, which is my major I used differential equations in structural mechanics, strength of materials and soil mechanics. As a tutor I have been teaching it to scores of my maths, physics and engineering students.
In Electrical Engineering so far I have tutored Circuit Analysis, Discrete Time Systems and Signals, Digital Logic Design and the simulation of logic design using VHDL. I analyzed both AC and DC circuits using Kirchoff's rule and mesh analysis. I used both phasor diagram method and complex number method for solving AC circuits. In discrete time system and signal we convolute the output of a unit signal to get the signal of another input. In the design of digital logic circuits we start with adder, multiplexer and ultimately design a microprocessor. To see how the circuit operates without actually investing anything in the hardware necessary we simulate the design using VHDL language.
Geometry is the precursor to 3D geometry, which has a lot of applications in civil engineering, mechanical engineering and architecture. Geometry knowledge is useful even in physics and chemistry. I taught geometry to many. Proving theorems and solving problems are equally important for learning geometry.
I am a Sun Certified Java Programmer. I cleared the exam in 2008. Since then I have tutored Java to many. Java is as powerful as C++ but easier to learn. It has a very wide area of application. For those who want to get into programming at a later stage in life Java is the best language to learn.
I have tutored the following Mechanical Engineering courses: statics, dynamics, strength of materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer. Statics deals with mechanical systems in equilibrium.
So, all a student needs to learn to master statics are force equilibrium equation and moment balance equation. Dynamics deals with accelerated particles and rigid bodies. Fluid mechanics deals with fluid at rest and in a state of motion. Thermodynamics is the study of laws of thermodynamics. Heat transfer needs a thorough understanding of conduction, convection and radiation of heat.
Physical science is the entry point of Physics and Chemistry. A sound knowledge in this opens the doorway for many professions like engineering, biotechnology and sciences. My advice to all students: "spend some time and learn this for a great career in science and technology".
Physics helps us make sense of some of the events in the physical world around us. To learn any subject one should have a desire to learn and physics is no exception. Every natural event follows some rule. Physics explains some of those rules. So interest in physics grows as one starts observing the nature. The job of a good physics teacher is to arouse the interest in a student. And once that is done learning the subject is pure and simple fun. Physics opens the doorway to many rewarding professions. Other than being a physicist one with good grounding in physics can become a mechanical engineer, an electrical engineer or a civil engineer.
Algebra is the starting point of higher mathematics and prealgebra is the building block of algebra. So I attach extra importance in teaching prealgebra. I have taught many prealgebra students before. Those who learn prealgebra with me find algebra easy to learn.
Precalculus has everything that you need to know after you have completed algebra and before you have started calculus. Any casual behavior or slackness on your part in learning this will seriously damage your mathematics knowledge base. I have tutored precalculus to many. With sound knowledge in precalculus your areas of application of calculus get magnified. You become a much better mathematician, scientist or engineer.
The review of one of my past students:
"Sushanta is patient, very very competent and extremely caring.
He explains so well that complex things become easy to understand.
Previously I used to be a slacker. Now I enjoy my studies because I understand the stuff like never before.
Thank you Sushanta for you help."

Probability tells us how many times an outcome is going to occur if an experiment is done many times. It is not possible to predict if a man is going to die this year. But using probability theory an insurance company, which has millions of customers, can predict very precisely how many of its customers are going to die in a year. Although it is not possible to predict which individuals are going to die but the overall number can be known with a lot of accuracy. Similarly it is possible to know which candidate is going to win an election before the election is held. Such is the power of probability theory.
I am a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India and an experienced tech tutor. I love teaching Python. Even a kid can understand it from day one. As it is very interactive--even a first time user can make a computer do a lot of things using this. It has a rich graphics component called Turtle. One can generate many wonderful shapes and colors without writing too many lines of code.
Score improvement in SAT Math is much easier than that in SAT English. All that you need is sound knowledge and a few hours of practice. I can make your Math knowledge free of any confusion and also can teach you those tricks, which make problem solving quicker. When you find Math easy to understand practicing it will be fun. I have helped many improve their SAT scores before.
The review of one of my past students:
"Sushanta has made my daughter love math. Now she is doing math all the time. I had to put a limit on her math practice hours so that she finds time for other subjects too."
- Mary A from Sunnyvale, CA
Statistics shows us how to predict the future by studying the data available at present. It is the only scientific way of inferring about tomorrow on the basis of today. Statistics offers many exciting career options like data analyst, quality control, big data.
The application of trigonometry is so widespread that it is practically impossible to learn physics or any engineering subject without sound knowledge of trigonometry. Solving trigonometry problems is so much fun I do it for relaxation. I have tutored this subject to many. Most of my students have improved grades and fallen in love with this subject.
The review of one of my students:
"Sushanta has changed my life. Math used to be the scariest thing on earth. Now after ten sessions with him I am addicted to math. I need to solve a few trigo problems to relax my strained nerves."
-Susan W. from VA.
