About Shefali

I have been tutoring math on a one-on-one basis for many years. I teach Elementary math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, PreCalculus, Calculus.

If you are interested in taking home tutoring classes for your kids, and improving their grades, do not hesitate to contact me.

Qualification: Masters in Computer Applications

My Approach :

I assess the child's learning ability in the first class and then prepare an individual lesson plan. I break down math problems for the child, to make him/her understand in an easy way. I work with the child to develop his/her analytical skills. I give homework and test to assess his progress periodically.

I teach kids at my place and if needed I come to your home to take classes.

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.

ACT Math

I have taught the math section of the ACT one-on-one. I have provided information to students on test taking strategies like time management, and simple approaches to complicated problems. I have guided them when to use the calculator. We work together and with consistent effort students have performed ACT math section with greater confidence.

Algebra 1

I have taught many students in the past who had difficulty understanding the basics of Algebra. My strategy of teaching is to use a step-by-step approach, breaking a complex problem in small sections. I give them different kinds of problems for practicing the skills. I have helped students overcome their fear of Algebra.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is a continuation of Algebra 1. I have tutored students in Algebra 2. I have taught all the topics in Algebra 2 like linear relations and functions, system of equations and inequalities, matrices, quadratic functions and inequalities, polynomial functions, conic section, rational expression and equations, exponential and logarithmic relations, sequences and series, trigonometric identities and graph. It can be a difficult subject but with practice students can gain confidence and I work with them to build their confidence.

Very Professional, Likable, and Excellent — I spent a lot of time trying to find the right tutor for my two high school juniors. I checked out Sylvan and Huntington and found both to be very expensive and each more interested in fitting my girls into the way their programs work (very different from one another) than in discovering what they really needed. So, I was more than thrilled when I finally found Shefali. My girls go to different hi ...
