Update: Due to enthusiastic student response, I have had to update my rates to limit the students I need to respond to. I have a few slots open now and will be focusing on Physics, calculus and standardized test prep.

I am a UOR Physics Ph.D. with two areas of specialty: math and physics.

Update: Due to enthusiastic student response, I have had to update my rates to limit the students I need to respond to. I have a few slots open now and will be focusing on Physics, calculus and standardized test prep.

I am a UOR Physics Ph.D. with two areas of specialty: math and physics.

I have 10 years of experience as a physics tutor. I love helping my students with diverse physics topics, including but not limited to electricity, magnetism, mechanics, statics, optics and semiconductor physics.

I have 15 years of experience as a math tutor, and I've worked with students from middle school through college and beyond, covering topics from pre-algebra and algebra through calculus 1/2/3 and differential equations

I've been told I'm kind and really good at communicating with people at their own pace and understanding. I'm also patient, happy to work with students with all skill levels and aptitude

I've helped math students with a variety of difficulties, such as math anxiety, a tendency to make lots of mistakes on homework and tests, and teachers and textbooks that we're so good.

I am an extremely good test taker and like to share my experiences with students. Once of my specialty is a 30 hour crash course for PSAT and SATs. Generally taken over 2-4 weeks, I guarantee at least a 60 point score increase as measured by an assessment test before the start and after the end of crash course. I also do an assessment during the middle of the course to assess where the student are at.

ACT math and science prep are also in my area of expertise and I have helped students with those.

Other areas of expertise : Latex, statistical analysis using JMP, Making latex presentations using beamer, PowerPoint, resume writing, GRE math prep.

Please note the following tutoring policies:
The rate may need to be increased if more than one student is requested to be tutored at a time.

Great Tutor!

Prashant was able to break down difficult physics concepts so that I can understand them clearly and on a more fundamental level. I look forward to more sessions with him!

Riya, 7 lessons with Prashant

Very knowledgeable and patient Tutor

Prashant taught me Physics formulas in a way that I could understand them. He was very patient. He used drawings and relatable examples to help me learn. I will use him again if needed.

Jacquelyn, 2 lessons with Prashant

Best Tutor

Prashant saved my physics grade!! Prior to meeting with Prashant I was failing every physics quiz. I even scored a 20% at one time. Immediately after meeting with Prashant, I jumped up to an 80%! He is very patient, understanding, and explains the concepts VERY well.

Tiffany, 5 lessons with Prashant

Excellent tutor and well worth the money

I have a midterm coming up and have been very stressed. Luckily I got matched with Prashant and he was able to ease my nerves about the upcoming midterm. He looked over the material before our session started and came prepared with a good lesson plan covering all of the topics that I needed to learn. He was good about getting in as much material as possible in the time we had while also making sure I understood everything before moving on. Before the session I was extremely nervous about my midterm but now I am feeling confident and ready to take the test. 10/10 would recommend to anybody needing help in any of his many areas of expertise.
