About Garima

I am a strong believer of the quote “The most dangerous phrase ever is: we have been doing it this way”. I always try to make my students look at things from a different perspective so that they can develop a liking for the subjects that I tutor them. I feel that a good tutor is the one who understands that just like all the fingers in a hand are not similar, not every student is the same. As a tutor, I try to understand what a student requires and what the level is on which he/she can understand things.

Economics has always been my favorite subject. I had developed a liking for the subject when I was pursuing my senior secondary education following which I decided to take up economics as the subject for majors. As soon as I began college, I also began tutoring. I have been tutoring economics since then. The students I used to teach actually saw their results improving and they too developed a keen interest in the subject because of the way they were made to learn. The subjects that I tutor include Statistics, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Mathematics, Business Studies, and English. I have been observing for quite some time now that many students have difficulty doing topics like regression analysis, understanding different probability distributions and memorizing formulas of statistics and econometrics. Many students find themselves struggling with understanding Keynesian economics. These are the areas that I have a very good hold of and can easily solve problems relating to these topics. Economics helps us not just learn about certain things or facts of life but also observe and understand the various things happening around us. My second job is at a company where I create content for economics. I have received many positive reviews from my seniors because of efficiency and effectiveness with which I work. I have been tutoring students online also and many of the students were quite impressed with the way I break things down, simplify them and present in front of the students.

Apart from learning, and teaching, I enjoy reading. I get a hold of anything from short stories, novels or anything that seems intriguing and I'll start reading them. I like to travel, meet new people, and know about the histories and cultures of those places. I love spending time with my friends. I like doing social work. During my graduation, I was a part of the National Service Scheme. This organization helped me to explore various ways in which I can help the poor and the underprivileged. Apart from just donating money, food and clothes through various sources, we can do a lot for them like teaching them for free, spending time with the orphans and poor children especially during festivals and other special occasions and a lot more can be done for them.




I have more than 5 years of experience in tutoring. Before beginning a new chapter I tell my students about the importance of Economics in life and how it can be related and applied to daily use. The best way to teach a student is to actually make them explore and understand things not by the same old textbook teaching-learning process but by taking them beyond the textbooks. The main source of contentment for me is the good reviews that I get from those students and their parents.

I am proficient in MS Excel, Maple etc. I know STATA, SPSS as well. During my graduation I have worked on a project – Demographic dividend. The project was about analysis the demographic changes in India in the past few decades.
I find Economics to be very interesting and worth learning. It is also a very important subject and when I teach I try to make it clear that there is no down side to having a competent knowledge of Economics. I have been teaching for a while now, and with each lesson, I get better.
