About Raghu

Mathematics is my strong suit, followed by Physics. My top performance in these gained me admission to the most sought out Mechanical Engineering program at a prestigious engineering college where only 1 % of students who wrote the entrance exam gained admission.

I have tutored many students successfully in preparing for SAT, SAT Math I, SAT Math II, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Trigonometry, Geometry, Algebra I and II. I focus on providing intuitive insights into the principles involved for a stronger understanding. I vary tutoring style based on student’s level and interest so that every student gains from my tutoring. Many of my students have made significant gains in their test scores and have highly appreciated my help.

I love teaching and helping students in improving their scores. I hold a Ph.D. in Operations Research from Case Western Reserve University and thus can also teach Probability Theory, Discrete Mathematics and Statistics.

Please try me and you will be glad you did!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a Ph. D. in Mathematical subject of Operations Research from Case Western Reserve University. I tutored many school students in Algebra 1 and in particular helped students struggling in Algebra on how to make use of Arithmetic to do and get to like Algebra.

Differential Equations

I have taken 3 years of Mechanical Engineering Mathematics involving Differential Equations and Integration topics. I am currently tutoring 2 students in college Calculus II courses. I am strong in Mathematics as demonstrated by my Ph.D. in Operations Research which involved mostly advanced Math courses.

Discrete Math

I have a Ph.D. in Operations Research and I have taken a graduate level course in Discrete
Mathematics also known as Combinatorics. I got A in the course. Also, my Ph.D. thesis was in this field. I have confidence I can tutor in this subject.

Hindi

I have good knowledge of spoken and written Hindi. I have studied Hindi in Indian school for several years and spoken, read and written in Hindi for many years. I can tutor someone wanting to learn Hindi for practical reasons.

Linear Algebra

I have a Ph.D. in Operations Research and I had a full graduate level course in Linear Programming which is heavily based on Linear Algebra. I have worked in industry using Linear Algebra techniques to solve business problems.

Mechanical Engineering

I have a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Oklahoma State University and a Bachelor's degree from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India in Mechanical Engineering. I did very well in both getting A grades. My undergraduate degree, from IIT, is a very prestigious degree worldwide since getting into this institute for this program is extremely competitive (just 1 % get in.)
I scored very high in GRE in both plain and subject (Mech Engg) and received admission and financial assistance from two US Universities including Duke.

Great Math Tutor for High School as well as College Kids.

Raghu is a very good tutor. He uses his teaching background well to analyze and focus on the areas where the most improvement is needed. He is very patient and is never short on helpful tips and tricks that can be used to solve almost any math problem my son had. He is also quite flexible in terms of times and locations for sessions and responds promptly to messages. I would definitely recommend
