I have a Ph.D. in Math. I am now retired after teaching Math at college and university level for 35 years. I have taught Algebra, Pre-calculus, Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry and several higher level Math courses for lot of semesters. I have been tutoring in the San Francisco Bay Area for 8 years now. Many of my students have had help from me in Calculus AB/BC and AP Calculus. I have tutored students from UC Berkeley, UCLA, Carnegie-Mellon, Illinois Institute of Technology, University of Alabama etc in major level Math.
My focus in tutoring is to help the student understand the class material well, complete their assigned work, review for tests and get good grades. All the students I have tutored for AP Calculus have scored a 5 in the AP Test. They have also gone on to UC Berkeley, Stanford, Columbia etc. Most have been year-long students and I have had the privilege of being a "family tutor" for siblings and cousins.
While I was a university professor, I have taught Algebra & Trigonometry, Precalculus and Calculus for 75 semesters. I have also taught major courses Abstract Algebra, Finite Math, Discrete Math, Linear Algebra, History of Math for several semesters. I have produced my own book for Algebra & Trigonometry, Finite Math and Precalculus and used it every time I taught these courses. I was also a pioneer in adopting technology like graphing calculators and the web. I have designed my own course websites with dynamic content like problem generators and grade lookup. During the Stay-at-home period, I continue to tutor online using the Skype platform.
Please contact me for help with any of your Math needs. I will happy to explain the material, answer your questions, help you complete your class-work and achieve better grades. With my long experience in working with students, I can tell you that the confidence of feeling that you know the material is very important for success in learning. Continued learning practice can give that confidence.

Professor Rama's tutoring session was wonderful. He went over some Discrete Math problems that I needed help with. His demeanor was very professiona, positive and calm. He didn't make me feel inferior because I didn't understand how to tackle the problem. I absolutely DESPISE math, but the way he took the time to explain it slightly changed my mind about Discrete Math. Slightly....I would definitely recommend him. I am going to request future sessions with Professor Rama.Lavette, 2 lessons with Rama
Very Patient and simplified to my understanding
Rama was Excellent! Took his time and explained in a way I could understand. I understand so much after 1 lesson! Started lesson with very little understanding and ended with a clear view of what the SAT is asking and preparing me for the SAT work as well as completing In a timely manner. I have more sessions sched with Rama and will continue to work with Rama in the future.JASMINE, 2 lessons with Rama

About Prof. Rama
Prof Rama is patient and kind. He is very knowledgeable and made my son actually start understanding the topics in Discrete Math. If more teachers were like Prof. Rama, Math might just become a more likeable subject! May rating is 'Excellent' for this wonderful teacher!Shubha, 13 lessons with Rama
He was able to break down difficult topics to make them easier to understand. He helped me answer all the problems I had trouble with in a way that made it easy. I would definitely recommend.Burak, 1 lesson with Rama
Rama R. helped me so much with the Abstract Algebra assignment. He really knows his stuff and explains it well. Would highly recommend.Hayden, 15 lessons with Rama
My son attends an online high school that offers rigorous courses. Rama is the only teacher on Wyzant to help. We went through four other teachers before we found Rama. Thank you.Jacqueline, 6 lessons with Rama
