About Kunal

Hello,

I have always regarded education as supreme and given it priority. It is essential for any society to function exceptionally. Education is a bridge between dreams and possibilities. This bridge is better built by assessing the educational needs of specific individuals and then meeting those needs through educationally appropriate manners. Learning varies since individuals vary.

Teaching children varies from teaching adults. However, both environments require patience. I have tutored children (elementary to high school level) and adults (college level). My teaching style is relaxed in both settings. I tailor my teaching techniques to better match an individuals learning style. I have also worked as a behavior therapist teaching applied behavior analysis to special needs children and adults for many years.

I have worked with children at Palo Alto Unified School District and have helped kids with multiple subject areas from elementary to middle school level. In Mountain View, I worked privately with high school level children helping them with multiple subjects. Besides teaching children, I have also taught and tutored adults during my time as a college instructor in Nevada. Subject areas such as mathematics (Algebra 1, trigonometry, and geometry), technical writing, student success (reading, writing, and note taking), psychology, computers (Excel, Word, and basic internet), and business communication were covered.

I have helped children with elementary to high school level mathematics. Areas such as Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Trigonometry, and Geometry were covered. These same areas were the ones I covered in college with adults as well. I also have experience teaching mathematics to preschoolers and kindergartners.

I have majored in Psychology and am on my way to obtain a Master's of Science in Clinical Psychology. I have a passion for psychology and love teaching it. I have helped children in high school with psychology and have taught and tutored college level Psychology students.

Although I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, I try to be flexible with time. Rescheduling sessions is always a possibility. I am comfortable tutoring online, in library, in café, or student's location. I hope I can be of assistance to you. Please feel free to contact me for your educational endeavor.

Hello,
I'm sorry for such negative feedback. I was responsible for showing up on time to work with the student, which I did. However, I failed to take into account that parking might be more of a hassle than I expected. I simply called and notified students mom of my inability to find parking near students home. Then I drove around for about 15 minutes looking for parking and still didn't find anything. Well, at that point I called students mom and explained that "I don't know what to say (I honestly felt bad about my inability to find parking). She got upset which is very understandable. It is when she attacked my work ethic that I clearly and professionally communicated that I do have a strong work ethic (I had dropped my daughter to preschool and rushed off to work for 1 hour and had to come back and pick her up). Due to this I couldn't take any form of public transportation. Well, I had shared this with the students mom when we first met. "I had stated that Thursdays will be a rush but I was going to try". Once again, I apologize for such negative and accusatory feedback, however, I sent the students mom an email stating my reason for canceling sessions altogether. I'll be glad to share the email with any new student request. Never once did I blame the students mom for my inability to find parking.

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.

Autism

I have 10 years experience working with autistic individuals from mild to severe. I have also worked with adults who had severe autism providing care and teaching, using some sign language and peck system. I thoroughly enjoy working with autistic individuals. I have worked in school, home, and outdoor settings.

Bible Studies

As someone who attends church daily, takes part in Bible study sessions, reads the Bible daily, and attends Sunday school, I have increased my knowledge of the Bible. I have asked questions when I didn't understand anything and have answered questions about the Bible. It is an amazing book, one I would like to passionately teach.

Hindi

I have been speaking Hindi since I was a kid. I learned how to read and write in Hindi as a child. It can be a very artistic language to read and write. I would like to teach it with passion.

Special Needs

I have worked as a behavior therapist for a unified school district teaching children applied behavior analysis. I also worked as a behavior therapist for a private company working with autistic and ADHD children. Besides being a behavior therapist for organizations, I also privately taught children who were autistic, ADHD, and had dyslexia. I thoroughly enjoy working with special needs individuals. This field requires patience and understanding. I have been trained to understand the need for patience.

Track & Field

As a runner and biker for most of my lifetime, I have developed a genuine love for fitness. In high school, I was involved in track running and aimed to decrease time and increase speed. I understand the benefits biking can provide. It can help build endurance which transfers over to running. I have been running since I was six years old and have never stopped loving it. From elementary school to college to beyond, I have been running and biking.

After a lengthy prep meeting and detailed discussions of availability, we booked Kunal to work regularly Thursday mornings and Sunday mid-morning. We were expecting Kunal today and I received a call that he was having difficulty parking about 5 minutes before his scheduled session. He was trying to cancel the session already. I had no solution to offer for the parking issue. He contacted me ag
