I am a Physics graduate and have several years of professional IT experience. I strive to create a learning environment that is comfortable for all students. My sessions are very interactive with hands-on coding and execution. Those who have never touched a computer should be as at ease in my class as those who have prior exposure.

The key to being successful is to start early and be ahead of the game since technology touches every division of life.

Knowledgeable and methodical

I have taken two classes so far in Python programming, really liked the way Nirmala structured the topics to teach and introduce me to the subject. She is very knowledgeable on this topic.

Kiran, 5 lessons with Nirmala

Exceptional AP Computer Science Tutor

Nirmala has taught AP Computer Science to my 11th grade daughter for almost 6 months. My daughter had no prior knowledge of computer programming, Nirmala very patiently kept my daughter motivated and engaged with the new subject matter, gave her assignments for extra practice. She took time to understand class assignments and helped her complete the work in a fun and motivational environment. We found Nirmala as exceptional tutor due to her friendly personality, subject matter knowledge and style of motivational teaching methods. I would strongly recommend her for lessons - beginners or advanced.

Great Python Tutoring

Nirmala has been teaching Python to my son for quite a few weeks now. She has kept him well engaged, encouraged him to look at alternative ways to code, given him assignments and has been available for consultation when needed. I would strongly recommend her for lessons - beginners or advanced.

Sapan, 35 lessons with Nirmala

Knowledgable and patient tutor

She taught me syntax and intro to coding and introduced me to what computer science is about. I like the pace of the course and examples and homework/links she sends me to review before our next sessions which are really helpful to prepare and refresh before the next class

Anna, 19 lessons with Nirmala

Knowledgeable and patient AP comp sci tutor

Nirmala helped my son with AP Comp science. She is very knowledgeable and patient. She was accommodate my son at short notice and helped him with topics he was struggling for some upcoming tests. My son's grade improved after taking her help. He will continue to take her help for AP comp sci test. I will highly suggest her. I wish my son has taken her help from start of school year.

Knowledgeable and Efficent!

Nirmala is very good at helping with all sorts of different problems. She is able to detect problems in code right away, and does an excellent job at explaining processes.

H, 5 lessons with Nirmala

Very Helpful tutor

I was feeling very unconfident about the material for the AP Computer Science Exam, however Mrs. Nirmala made me feel much more confident about the upcoming test. She uses multiple resources to help teach and she makes concepts easier to understand. She also provides information on other sources you can use to help prepare.

Nazia , 12 lessons with Nirmala

AP Computer Science

Had 5 classes with Nirmala so far. She's a very patient and experienced tutor. We'll continue working with her. The student has more confidence in the subject. Thank you, Nirmala!

Lillian, 21 lessons with Nirmala

Awesome tutor!

For the past few months, Nirmala has been an amazing tutor. She is incredibly patient with me, considering that I basically knew nothing about computer science beforehand. She motivates me to work harder in learning the material by setting higher expectations and really understands the ins and outs of the AP exam. I get the feeling that she genuinely wants me to succeed on this exam and she coordinates her teachings around my needs. Nirmala always makes sure I am getting the most out of our limited time whether it's by explaining more important concepts or giving me helpful exercises to verify if I understood the topics. I feel more confident coming out of her lessons. One thing I regret was not going to her earlier.
