About Shival

In 2016, I received my bachelor's degree in Math and Computer Science from Caltech, one of the top technical schools in the world. I have always excelled at technical thinking, and I love trying to think of new ways to explain technical concepts to people. Due to my patient and flexible approach to teaching, I have helped my students gain more confidence in their math and science classes and get better grades.

I tutor math and science from middle school through college, including help with AP tests and the SAT.

Through approachable and intuitive explanations, I hope to surprise you by how much you can learn! Contact me to schedule lessons.

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

In order to graduate from Caltech with a degree in math, having a total command of the concepts in algebra was absolutely necessary.

Now I'm happy to share my knowledge with others. Through patient, step-by-step lessons, I can help students who are struggling with algebra gain confidence in the material and can help with homework and test prep. I also can push algebra students who are looking for a challenge, exposing them to more advanced concepts and ideas.

Algebra 2

In order to graduate from Caltech with a degree in math, having a total command of the concepts in algebra 2 was absolutely necessary. Now I'm happy to share my knowledge with others. Through patient, step-by-step lessons, I can help students who are struggling with algebra 2 gain confidence in the material and can help with homework and test prep. I also can push algebra 2 students who are looking for a challenge, exposing them to more advanced concepts and ideas.

Calculus

As a math major at Caltech, I became an expert in calculus, using it daily in areas as diverse as physics, neuroscience, and political science.

Even in high school, I obtained a solid foundation in calculus, taking and excelling in AP Calculus BC, multivariable calculus, and differential equations.

I have always loved explaining concepts in calculus and can provide supplementary lessons and also help with homework and studying for tests. Since calculus is so fundamental to how the world works, I try to make learning calculus intuitive and fun, instead of a chore.

Differential Equations

I took differential equations classes in high school and in college at Caltech, one of the top colleges in math in the world, and attained an expertise in the field that has allowed me to participate in advanced scientific research, including neuroscience research at the Allen Institute for Brain Science on DiPDE, a differential equations simulator for large populations of neurons.

But I don't just work with experts. During my time at Caltech, I tutored some of my fellow students in differential equations. One of them said about their experience, "Shival is a very patient tutor who thinks that no question is too dumb to ask. He is very good at breaking down complex ideas in a very understandable and intuitive way."

If you are having trouble with differential equations, I look forward to working with you so we can boost your confidence in the material and test scores, and explore the world of differential equations together.

SAT Math

As a former full National Merit Scholar and as someone who achieved a 2390 out of 2400 on the SAT, I know what an SAT test-taker needs to succeed: hard work, good test-taking strategies, and confidence in their ability to succeed, especially at SAT Math!
