Hello!

My name is Priti, and I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from University of Illinois, Chicago. I have over 10+ 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.

Hello!

My name is Priti, and I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from University of Illinois, Chicago. I have over 10+ 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.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

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.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

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.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

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.
Geometry,

Geometry

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.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

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.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

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.

Math

ACT Math,

ACT Math

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.

Trigonometry

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.

Knowledgeable and effective tutor

She was very prepared and helped my child understand trigonometric concepts in new ways. She explained things very well, and she was also patient, friendly, and prompt.

Jennifer, 1 lesson with Priti

Very knowledgeable

She really helped my son understand his Geometry which has been a struggle for him. He is definitely looking forward to his next session with her. Highly recommend!

Lisa, 6 lessons with Priti

Even on short notice, Priti came through!

Priti helped my son with all manner of fractions for an upcoming test he wasn't quite ready for. It went so well, he wants to meet with her for the remainder of the semester.

Kimberly, 5 lessons with Priti

Excellent and patient math tutor!

Priti is an excellent math tutor. She is vary patient, and is able to describe complex concepts into simpler terms, making it easier to learn. She is able to quickly figure out where the student is having challenges, and address them. My daughter is greatly benefiting from her lessons!

Fabio, 41 lessons with Priti

So patient

Thank you so much! I really appreciate how patient you are with me and how clear you are with steps/instructions. I understand the material so much more now. I like how you show me an example or multiple step by step and then allow me to do one on my own. See you next Tuesday!

Nadjeschda , 12 lessons with Priti

Highly knowlegable and patient tutor

Priti has an excellent way of helping students understand challenging material. She had a strong knowledge base and am very pleased to have found her. She is a phenomenal tutor!

Hector, 25 lessons with Priti

Great experience

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.

Ed, 8 lessons with Priti

Extremely Gifted Tutor

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.

Santosh, 1 lesson with Priti

Very patient and helpful.

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.
