About Raghu


Bio

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...

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!

Helpful and patient tutor

Both of my kids really like Raghu. They each have separate lessons; both have told me that he is helping them a lot with Algebra 1. I often hear them laughing when they are working with him. He is really good at explaining things in a way they can understand. They like working with him! That is saying a lot, believe me!

Jennifer, 5 lessons with Raghu

First Lesson

Raghu quickly identied my sons concerns and issues and provided help and strategies to succeed. Most importantly he worked with and spoke to my son in an empathetic and disarming manner such that he felt he was working with a teammate to attack the problems at hand.

John, 6 lessons with Raghu

Very Helpful

Raghu has been very helpful and accommodating. He is open to helping in any way possible and his knowledge and experience in Mathematics is evident. Always prepared and on top of things.

Aaron, 10 lessons with Raghu

An expert in Math. A gentleman.

Ragu is helping my daughter ( Junior in HS) in Algebra 2 and studying for the Math SAT’s. He was extremely helpful. He is passionate about math which extends into his patient teaching. She said he is the best math tutor she has ever had. She has tried about 5 other tutors. We highly recommend him.

Denise, 9 lessons with Raghu

Personable and patient tutor.

This was a first review session for a summer college calculus course and Raghu was very personable. We really didn't get into the content yet with specific challenges, but will update comments as sessions progress.

Erin, 3 lessons with Raghu

Excellent Tutor for ACT math & science

Raghu is very nice and explains the material clearly. We worked on math and science problems for the ACT and I am looking forward to future lessons. Raghu is very patient.

Becky, 3 lessons with Raghu

Good tutor

Helped me get past some problems I was struggling with. Especially ones that algebra was not needed. I feel more prepared for my exam.

Chandler, 1 lesson with Raghu

Great tutor! Very flexible and affordable

Raghu has helped me tremendously in math and science on the ACT, he is very good at figuring out the specifics of what needs to be fixed. I took multiple SAT classes elsewhere and for a third of the price Raghu was able to help me more then any of the class lessons ever could. He is able to come to your house or meet you anywhere, and is extremely flexible with arranging a time that works for you both. I highly recommend Raghu as a tutor for anyone who is interested in improving ACT or SAT math or science scores!

Rex, 6 lessons with Raghu
