About Shelly

I have more than 8 years of tutoring experience with specialization in various math topics. I hold a Master's Degree in Mathematics from a premier University in India. This has provided me great knowledge and skills to teach Mathematics to students.

I also have a Bachelor's degree in Education which helps me to connect with students and provide a more efficient learning environment for them to be successful. I use practical examples in my teaching style to help students grasp the topics quickly. I try to make the subject fun for the students so that they do not consider it a burden.

I love the challenge of helping kids understand the nuances of mathematics so that the knowledge will stay with them forever. I like to use frequent test papers to test the knowledge of students and also help prepare them for their academic tests and exams. This gets the "Exam" phobia out from their system.

So if you are looking for a fun and innovative way for your kids to learn and master Maths, you may want to reach out to me. I bring with me wealth of experience and knowledge and would like to share it amongst my students.
