About Navin

Hello! My name is Navin and I live in Fort Myers. My degree is in Mechanical Engineering, and after several years in the field I decided to teach math instead. My current position is an AP Calculus teacher at Canterbury School. I absolutely LOVE math - it is a huge passion of mine.

In college I used to tutor fellow students in math outside of class time (mostly calculus) and found the experience very rewarding. My students found it easier to cope with the material and this was reflected in better homework and exam grades. I too benefited from this by gaining tutoring experience and of course by constantly keeping my mind sharp! For those tutoring sessions, what I primarily did was review homework problems and past quizzes/tests/exams. Given the nature of math, I feel doing sample problem after sample problem is a very effective way to improve.

I cover a broad range of math concepts, so I can't say I specialize in any one area. Areas include trigonometry, geometry, fractions, decimals, algebra, calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations. What I propose we do is go over any homework and exam problems that you have difficulty with, without spending too much time on areas where you are already doing well. Needless to say, I'm flexible so constant feedback and question asking is highly encouraged.

Good places to have tutoring sessions include libraries, cafes, and your home if that's your preference.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you improve your grades and your love of math!

Thanks for your consideration and have a wonderful day!!

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.

Chess

I've been playing chess since I was 6, and competitive chess since I was 14. I currently hold the title of "Master" and am rated on the US Chess Federation's site. My rating is 2252 (2200 and above signifies "Master") and also that I'm in the top 1% of all chess players in Florida, as well as all chess players in the US as a whole.
With my chess strength, I'm confident I'd be able to help a budding chess player improve his/her game by going through sample games from the greats, chess puzzles, opening studies, as well as some typical endgames that may arise. After several sessions, my student should be able to perform better at his/her next tournament.
