University of Illinois,Vikram university
Roosevelt University- Chicago (Master's)
I graduated with a master's degree in chemistry and a bachelor's degree with variety of subjects: chemistry, math and biology along with English, physics, etc. I was consistently in the top 2% of my class during high school and college. In addition, in college, I was awarded a medal for having the highest grade in chemistry in my graduating class. After a few years of working as a chemist, I decided to share my knowledge and expertise in science,math and English with students and adults as well. In college, I tutored all levels of students including elementary and middle school and college students. I tutored my two wonderful kids from elementary to high school and college years. They are now both highly educated and successful in their respective fields. I have also tutored for the Dupage Literacy Program.
I am a very patient person and am passionate about teaching. I will go the extra mile to make sure the student thoroughly understands the material.
I always make sure my students understand basic concepts and principles when learning new subjects. I present the subject matter with a lesson plan, and at the end of each lesson I review the relevant material by asking questions and giving quizzes on material learned in order to solidify understanding and foster critical thinking. This is not the only way, though.
I am also very flexible in ways of tutoring as every student has his own ways of learning and different needs.

My son continues to get better with lessons from Reka. He is absorbing knowledge like a sponge. He has jumped to an A- grade. I see his GPA increase every time Reka spends time with him. She is very responsive to our needs. My son understands the material much better after every session. Very accommodating with our schedule, too.
Reka has been an excellent chemistry resource for my daughter. She comes prepared, explains everything thoroughly and is very conscientious of making sure she gets as much in as she can in a session. Before finals week, Reka even reviewed my daughter's study guide ahead of time and was ready to go during the session. I would definitely recommend Reka!
Reka responded quickly and tutored my son in Chemistry for five hours over two days. She immersed him in stoichiometry for an upcoming test which he was struggling to understand. She was patient and very thorough with her explanations and my son was thrilled and decided that he actually liked stoichiometry. We will use Reka again. She's excellent.
She is a great tutor. She explained in a way that my daughter understood everything. I would recommend her to people who really need help in biology.
Reka has been incredibly helpful with tutoring me. She had helped me learn the Hindi language. Reka was always easy to contact and we were able to schedule sessions around my schedule. Her knowledge of the language and her ability to teach made it easier for me to grasp the sentence structure and the pronunciation of the Hindi language. The language was difficult for me, but Reka was very patient and helpful. I know Reka is very knowledgeable on other subjects than Hindi and I believe she would be as helpful in those subjects as she was for this. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for more knowledge on a subject.
I have been out of school for about 2 years and I decided to join the navy, however for that I must pass the ASVAB test. As I worked with the book I ran into very serious complications trying to solve math problems. I decided to get a tutor and found Reka with excellent reviews. She was extremely patient, nice, and helped me step by step on solving and understanding the problems. I now feel extremely confident that I will pass this ASVAB test.
My tutoring sessions with Reka have proven to be a great success. I have improved my grade in chemistry immensely. I would highly recommend Reka for anyone who is looking to improve their scores.
After having my first ACT session with her, I realized right away that this is helping me a lot with my prep. I waited impatiently for the next session! She provides helpful tips and strategies and all kinda of materials that started at my level, explains them very well, and then we go up from there to increase my score!
There are so many good things to say about Reka. Trying to get into an ultrasound tech program has been a very long process for me and I was recently told one of the requirements to apply was that I place out of College Algebra. Since I haven't taken a math class in 11 years I began to panic until I had my first tutoring session with Reka. To say Reka is knowledgeable in math is an understatement. She is incredibly smart and extremely patient. We started with pre-algebra which Reka pretty much had to teach me basic math skills all over again. With that said, she made me feel so comfortable and walked me through each problem and made sure that I understood why and how we solved the problem a certain way before we moved on to the next question. She doesn't let me given up even when I get frustrated with some of the harder problems. She is very encouraging and wants me to succeed just as much as I want myself to. In the few short months I have been tutoring with Reka I feel like I've never been better at solving math problems. Math has never been my best subject but Reka knows how to explain things to me so that I can understand the meaning behind the problem.
So far we've gone over the NLN Exam book, the TEAS book, a few COMPASS math tests and so much more. I've already placed into College Algebra and have no doubt that the next time I take the COMPASS test I will place out of College Algebra. Reka is always on time and very flexible with her schedule which helps me greatly as I work full time. A few times I have had to change the tutoring times and she is very accommodating and will try to work around my schedule.
I would highly recommend Reka to anyone who needs help in math or any other subject for that matter. If you are looking to get into nursing school and feel like you need some help with the TEAS exam Reka is the tutor for you!
I had TEAS test tutoring lessons with Reka and I was very satisfied with the way she prepared me for the test. She tutored me on the right material and explained everything very well. She gave me quizzes and notes which helped me prepare for science material I was not good at. After tutoring with Reka I felt I learned many new things and my science became better. I got accepted into my nursing program of choice.
Thank you Reka for all your help!!!
Reka is a very patient, caring, and excellent tutor. Math was very scary subject for me but she worked hard to teach me all the aspects of math for my state exam and brought enough confidence in me to do the math problems she helped me with some math concepts that understand for years.
Very patient. Very easy to contact. Very understanding. Explained concepts in basic terms. Highly recommend. Would like to continue after ACT.
Very accommodating with her time. Very knowledgeable. My son thoroughly enjoyed his study time with her. We will continue to use her for his college needs in the future.
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.
If your child has any problem with algebra, I am happy to let you know that algebra is one of my strongest subjects along with other math. I always earned high grades and accolades and learned those concepts quickly and easily. When I work with students, first I make sure that student understands all related concepts then I spend time teaching strategies to solve the problems assigned. I prepare students for quizzes, tests, homework and ISAT or any other standardized tests. I also specialize in preparing students for ICTS(TAP) basic skills exam.
Having earned M.S. degree in chemistry and winning a medal at university level, I am very knowledgeable in all aspects of chemistry. I have been tutoring honors chemistry, AP chemistry, Intro. and regular chemistry college level general chemistry 1 and 2 and SAT2 chemistry for last several years and have acquired the proficiency of making difficult aspects easy to understand for the students.There are two main aspects in learning chemistry -- 1. I make students to understand principles and concepts thoroughly; 2. Help them learn to apply those principles along with the concepts of math and algebra in a step by step process leading to final conclusion or results. I often hear my students say, "Oh, you are of such a great help" and they earn a higher grade than they had before tutoring with me.
I not only excel in science and math but also in tutoring English as a second language. I have taken training in tutoring ESL and am certified to do that. I have tutored adults and can tutor anybody-whether they are beginning to speak, write and read English, if they are struggling with English or if they need help at higher level.
I have several years of experience in geometry and am passionate about teaching the subject. I have tutored several students in geometry through Wyzant and have helped them maintain or improve grades. Geometry is an important component of ACT/SAT and several other standerdised tests which I have tutored very successfully.
I lived in India for many years and am fluent in Hindi and Gujarati languages. I can work with those who speak these languages and/or want to learn them. I had a Hindi course at a higher level and scored well in it. I can help with communication, listening comprehension, grammar, and writing.
