About Ponni

Hey guys!

I am an experienced tutor in Biology and Math. In math my focus is on middle school math, algebra I and II. I am energetic and really want all my students to succeed. I have experience creating my own lesson plans and really try to figure out what each students needs in order to succeed. I monitor their progress with quizzes and reviews. I have brought many students who were C or below up to A's and B's but it is a team effort and the student does need to put in the effort also.

I have prepped students for AP Biology as well as SAT II Biology exams. I do believe that every student has the potential to do well and its up to the tutor to be able to figure out in which way the student learns the best. In most cases its just that the student needs to hear the concepts from one more person. I also teach study skills and can tutor elementary students in all subjects.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience tutoring students from the 2nd grade all the way up to 12th grade in Math. I have tutored up to advanced placement algebra II. With elementary math it is all about practice and becoming familiar with the concepts.

Good tutor

After about 5 tutoring sessions with my daughter I can say that Ponni does a very good job working with my daughter. Ponni is patient and flexible enough to explain math issues in different ways until she is sure that the student mastered the problem/technique. However, she does not waste time on math issues she feels my daughter has under control. Communication also with parent is very good and i
