“**He is the tutor we were looking to find!**”

I am a very patient, knowledgeable and organized tutor.

I love to teach my students. I have too much interest in teaching my students. I go out of my way to do more research to find some innovative ways of teaching that are more beneficial to my students.

My students get a good and strong foundation for Math. I am very

My daughter started with Ashwin when she was a freshman in high school struggling with Algebra I. She will be entering her junior year this fall and we still feel lucky to be working with Ashwin. He very patiently went back and helped with the concepts she was missing from poor teaching in 7th and 8th grade. He has instilled not only knowledge, but confidence in our daughter, who is no longer intimidated by her math courses. She knows Ashwin will help her prepare for tests, master concepts, and many times be one-step ahead of the class. We have continued working with him over the summer months to be ready for the rigors of Algebra II. Additionally, he is reinforcing past concepts as an ongoing review for the math portions of standardized tests she will be taking over the next couple of years. We consider ourselves lucky to have found Ashwin and appreciate his hard work with our daughter.

My son loves Learning with Ashwin and he has been working with him on some of the concepts in math. He is very happy to learn with him and is always eager to learn new concepts with him. I think Ashwin helped him develop an interest in Math. Now he scores high in math and got a 99% ISAT and MAP score. We are very happy with our decision.

From the get go Ashwin has impressed both my son and I in the way how well he was prepared for the task.

My Children really like the way Ashwin teaches. He is a very patient and dedicated to what he does.

From his initial lessons, I can say that he is very knowledgeable tutor.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.
