I'm Prashant B., a 30 year old male with a passion for mathematics and science. I have been tutoring acting as a teaching assistant on and off for 10 years now and have had great success with my students, ranging from middle school to Graduate Students.

I began tutoring by helping other students in my high school classes. In graduate school, I instructed undergraduate and graduate level courses in Physics Optics and Mathematics. My TAing assignments included lecture plan prep, Designing tests, grading home works etc. . While I havent worked for a tutoring company per say, I have had various opportunities outside of my regular TA assignments to help students with various subjects

I prefer one-on-one tutoring and enjoy engaging my students with fun and challenging problems. My areas of Tutoring expertise include, Physics, AP Physics, Calculus 1, calculus 2, calculus 3, Geometry, SAT/ACT/GRE/GMAT prep, Maths, Algebra 1 Algebra 2, Trigonometry etc. I like applying math and physics to real world situations; as they should, to allow my students to fully understand the relevance and necessity of knowing and using math in their everyday lives.

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Prashant saved the day by coming in last minute to replace another tutor who was unavailable during final exams. He came in with no prior knowledge of what was covered on my daughter's Pre Calculus final review and did a wonderful job of covering the material. She said she wished he had been her tutor all along.

Suzanne, 1 lesson with Prashant

Understands the students need and aptitude and modulates himself

He seems to be a natural teacher with ability to pace himself to the speed of student. He prepares on the AP topics ahead of time and hence the time us very well spent. Excellent.

Gopal, 6 lessons with Prashant

Extremely helpful

My son felt that Prashant was extremely helpful! He did a great job teaching and making sure my son understood his pre-cal material covering trigonometry. He also gives tips and tricks to help find the solution faster. We look forward to working with him again!

Raka, 1 lesson with Prashant
Tutor responded:

Dear Raka, thank you for your kind feedback. Your son is an extremely bright kid and I look forward to working with him again.

Great Guy and Great Teacher

Prashant has helped me tremendously in Physics. I was completely lost before I started tutoring with him. He is a great guy and very patient.

Tim, 9 lessons with Prashant
Tutor responded:

Tim is extremely bright and a pleasure to work with.

Enthusiastic tutor!

Prashant is an enthusiastic tutor, and the work with our 17-yr old son has resulted in substantial improvement in his Pre-cal and Physics understanding and grades. He is also makes every effort to accommodate schedule changes when necessary. Highly recommended.
