University of Illinois, Chicago (Computer Engineer)
My name is Priti, and I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from University of Illinois, Chicago. I have over 7 years of experience in teaching mathematics. Some of the subjects in which I have a niche are pre-algebra, algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2, trigonometry, and pre-calculus, and most of the honors/advanced courses listed.
I also have experience in teaching ACT (Math section only). I provide information to students on test taking skills, time management, and simple approaches to complicated problems.
Students whom I have tutored have performed exceptionally well, scoring mostly A's and B's and most of them have continued working with me throughout their high school careers.
I teach math in the summer as well, for students who want to continue / catch up / excel in their math skills, or prepare themselves for ACT Math.
I really enjoy teaching math, and that is what I do best. Hello!

After trying many math tutors, we finally hit the jackpot! After one lesson with Priti my daughter said this is the first time she really feels like she understands math. We are setting up a weekly appointment. Also note, my daughter is hard to impress.
Priti has been a great help with my daughter preparing for the math portion of the ACT. She connected well with her and taught her the strategies to increase her score.
Priti has innate ability to connect with the student and meet them where they are. Her subject knowledge and commitment to developing her students is noteworthy. Glad we decided to go with her.
My son felt that Priti was very patient and had a lot of helpful tools and ideas for him to work with to do better on ACT. Math isn't his strong subject therefore he feels this session gave him lots information to do better. One on one tutoring was very beneficial. Thank you Priti . We will be scheduling another session.
Priti is very good at explaining the math problems in a way that I could understand it and could then solve the math problems on my own.
This was our first the with Priti. She did a great job and we will definitely be scheduling more lessons!
My son needed pre calculus help. Priti was very prepared, professional, and knowledgeable. She has helped my son grasp the educational material. She understands his academic needs and also provided great test taking strategies. We would highly recommend her!!
We hope that Priti will help my daughter improve upon her ACT score in MATH. After her first lesson, she mentioned that Priti has already provided her with strategies for the ACT test and reviewed concepts very clearly.
My son was looking for some help in preparing for an upcoming Algebra test and Priti helped him focus on the concepts he needed to fine tune to get him ready for test day. My son enjoyed their time together and is feeling more confident! Thanks Priti!
Priti has helped me understand a concept in my Geometry class and I know a lot more than I did before having her tutor me. She is a slow paced and very helpful when seeing and showing how to do a certain thing. Overall she was a great choice and she helps drastically improve the understandings of a certain concept you're having trouble with or want to learn ahead of your class.
My daughter was tutored by Priti in Geometry. She was very thorough in her explanations and made sure my daughter understood the concepts. We will use her again.
My son was impressed with Priti's preparation for his lesson. What he found especially helpful was that she didn't insist on solving a problem her way. She understood multiple ways to solve the problem and reinforced the method his classroom instructor was teaching. He felt she explained things in a way he could understand them.
Priti is a great tutor. She has the knowledge, patience and teaching skills that we were looking for in an ideal tutor. I have no hesitation in recommending her to any student who is struggling with math.
After 4 weeks with Priti, my student has improved one half of a letter grade, and continues to make progress.
My student reports that Priti explains things really well and has some great tips for how to solve problems, and in a faster way.
Priti is very professional and always follows up with me to confirm the schedule.
Our daughter has gained tremendous confidence and skill working on difficult concepts in math in the short time she has been working with Priti. Priti is extremely patient and an observant teacher, tuning into the areas that are more challenging. She demonstrates a problem by breaking it down into smaller steps and repeating the process until her student has mastered it. She is an excellent communicator and organized and prepared. In a short period of time, our daughter has improved her math skills in Algebra 2 and is motivated to succeed. I highly recommend Priti. She is a superior tutor.
Priti is an amazing tutor! We are impressed with the first meeting she had with our son. He learned a lot with her excellent style of teaching. Thanks Priti, we will see you again!
For our first encounter, Priti arrived completely prepared with a math workshop program surrounding pre-calculus. As we began reviewing my current mathematical skills and limited knowledge base for the TI-83 calculator, she was extremely patient and understanding. Priti is very proficient with calculators and offers several methods when solving problems. Most of all she’s easy to understand and simplifies the math while building your comprehension and confidence. Her work ethic and compassion are commendable as her primary goal is the success of her students. I feel confident with her guidance; I will be successful in completing the required math course for my degree. I’m looking forward to continuing our tutoring sessions.
My son has enjoyed working with Priti very much. She helped my son with every problem he had, and was very patient and understanding. Priti was very professional and punctual as well. Priti was also very responsive, and we liked how she was always prepared. My son has learned a lot due to her teaching style. We are very glad we found her.
My daughter has very much enjoyed working with Priti. Priti comes prepared (by asking for information on what topics to be covered) and is very knowledgeable, professional, punctual, and thorough. I only wish we had started working with her sooner!
I asked my daughter what she thought of her lesson. She said that she liked Priti, because she was knowledgeable of the information. My daughter was looking for someone to build her confidence back. Which Priti did.
Priti is a great tutor. She's very patient and understanding. From the first session, I understood the topic much better. I am super glad I found her.
Priti has been tutoring our 6 year old daughter in math. We hired Priti to help our daughter get ahead of the curve with Math at school. Priti is very responsive, comes prepared with material for studying outside the visits. We really like that she makes visits to our house. This is very convenient and a more comfortable setting for our daughter. I highly recommend Priti!
Priti is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor. Her teaching method is very effective. My daughter needed help with algebra 2 and finals review and after just a couple of sessions her confidence improved. Priti was able to address all her questions and explain a variety of math problems. She came highly recommended from one of my daughter's friends and we are very pleased.
Priti has a very patient and supportive manner that makes her students gain self confidence as they work through problems. My daughter enjoys working with her and understands her teaching methods.
Priti's material is very well prepared and organized and very easy to understand. My daughter's grade improves a lot after 3-4 sessions.
Priti is wonderful to work with, very detailed and knowledgeable in all Math concepts. My daughter had no problems relating to her teaching style, and even mentioned that she wishes her teacher was as helpful and patient as Priti was! I could tell that my daughter had an easier time doing her homework last night even if it was just the first session! What I also appreciated about Priti was her quick response and flexibility, so I highly recommend her to anyone!
Priti has helped my daughter in math and also getting prepared for the ACT. She is prompt and explains things very well. She has helped my daughter improve her grade. She is very patient and worked well with my daughter. She also follows up providing detail of each session. I highly recommend Priti to anyone that is looking for an experienced one-on-one tutor.
Priti was flexible with our schedule to meet the student's needs. Worked on many examples and showed several different ways to complete problems. Very pleasant personality. Very glad we found her.
I have worked with several tutors in connection with my algebra class, none come close to the excellence of Priti. She was able to help me with every single problem and did not have to refer to my books for help (as did every other tutor I have tried). Priti is patient and thorough. I wish I had started with her earlier.
I was delighted with Priti's flexibility in scheduling and ability to jump right into my daughter's homework assignments and trigonometry class content. My daughter was delighted with Priti's straightforward explanations and "explaining it again several times to make sure (my daughter) understood". Two lessons later she improved from not understanding class lectures to a high B on her math quiz. We're happy.
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.
I provide information to students on test taking skills, time management, and simple approaches to complicated problems. Also, I provide information on which problems should be performed using the calculator to obtain the correct answer in short amount of time. We work together to create Basic formula sheet to help them memorize the important topics needed for the test.
I have tutored many students in the basic Algebra course & students who also have taken advanced courses. I have worked with students who have difficulty understanding the basic foundations of the course. I try to understand the missing links in their concepts and teach them effectively with my unique teaching skills. I also provide enough practice problems for them to improve their skills. I make sure I understand the need of the students and help them with patience. This way I create an environment where learning math becomes fun and productive.
I have tutored many students in Algebra 2 courses with the topics dealing with factoring, FOILING, Solving for variables using quadratic equations, and graphing quadratic equations as well. I have also taught a solving system of equations using graphing, elimination (combination), and substitution methods. I have also worked on matrices, exponents, logs, the transformation of the graph and many other concepts covered in Algebra 2. I also provide students with additional practice, if needed, on any concepts before tests or finals. I am familiar teaching concepts on a scientific calculator when required by the course. Algebra 2 can be a difficult subject, but with practice, I can help students gain confidence and knowledge of these complex mathematical concepts.
Elementary Math is the first basic subject to succeed in a series of higher-level math classes. I would love to develop the student's basic foundation in math with the right approach and using my teaching Technics. I make sure I understand the need of the students and help them with a patient. This way I create a desire to learn math rather than have to learn it. For example, I would teach the basic Multiplication facts by memorizing them in fun musical rhyme. I have taught my own son who is just starting his 2nd grade. I try to make math a fun subject.
I have tutored Geometry to many high school students. I have worked with many students who have difficulty understanding how to write out proofs using the different shapes and figures. I have also tutored students who have taken advanced courses as well. Geometry uses many properties and theorem to solve problems for angles, lines, triangles, and many more figures.
I have taught pre-algebra to many students in the past. This course starts out with basic properties of operations such as associative, distributive, and many more. The course evaluates expression using an order of operations known as PEMDAS. Also, it has review of natural numbers, arithmetic operations, integers, fractions, decimals and negative numbers, factorization of natural numbers, problems involving ratios, proportions, percents, measurement, intro to standard Cartesian coordinate plane, and basic geometry problems.
I have tutored my students with patience and provided them extra practice when needed for each topics they are struggling with. I make sure that students can enjoy and understand Pre-algebra and make math fun to learn.
I have tutored regular pre-calculus and advance pre-calculus to many high school students. Some of the topics I have worked with are Polar and Rectangular Coordinates, Complex Numbers, Series and Sequences, Probability: Permutation & Combination, probability using Binomial Theorem, Introducing Limits, Introducing Derivatives, and many more topics that come along in pre-calculus. I improve their skills with extra practice and my unique teaching skills. I work patiently with student according to their need to make the learning productive and fun.
I have tutored Trigonometry to many high school students. I have worked with many students who have difficulty memorizing unit circle in degrees, and radians with their values. Some of the topics I have worked with are converting the angles from radians to degrees & degree to radians, graphing trigonometry functions, applying properties & identities, law of Cos and law of sin. Also I have worked on many more topics that come along in trigonometry. I have also tutored students who have taken advanced courses as well.
