About Aparna

I love to teach and have taught high school, undergrads and graduate students for more than 15 years.

I believe in having a friendly and enthusiastic interaction with my students. My aim is that they feel the same enthusiasm learning the subjects taught as I do teaching them. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to inspire students to pursue subjects with passion instead of considering it yet another chore to complete.

I understand that every student is different and so their needs may be different and so I work according to their individual needs.

When it comes to tutoring, my aim is that the students understand the basics completely so that they can build upon it by themselves, needing lesser and lesser guidance with time.

I believe that the students need to get correct information and try to answer all questions I may already know. When I am unsure of something, I try to research the topic and get back to the student with the correct information. If the scope of the subject is beyond my realm I try to guide the student to other teachers and resources I know of.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a 2 masters degrees in computer science and have been teaching basic and advanced mathematics to high school, undergrad and graduate level students as well as working professionals for more than 15 years. Many of my students tell me that I have been the one best source for all their learning in mathematics.

Algebra 2

I have a 2 master's degrees in computer science and have been teaching basic and advanced mathematics to highschool, undergrad and graduate level students for more than 15 years.
