I have a lot of experience studying and teaching physics, math, and computer science. I have a physics degree from MIT, and I'm in my 4th year of my computer science PhD at the University of Illinois. I've taught summer courses to high school students about theoretical computer science, digital electronics, and microbiology. In addition, I have taught as a computer science teaching assistant in the course of my PhD.

I'd be happy to help you learn and get better at middle school and high school level math, college-level math for engineering (calculus, linear algebra, statistics, probability, etc.), and high school and college level physics. I can also help students of any age and programming ability learn to become better, more confident coders, whether you're just starting out or have a few courses under your belt and are looking to program at a higher level, possibly for a job or for school.

Excellent Help

Thanks to him I've been doing much better on exams and homework. I feel like I have a better understanding of my course material every time we work together.

Riley, 10 lessons with Pranjal

Knowledgeable and dedicated tutor

I took several tutoring sessions with Pranjal for Machine Learning course and I was very satisfied. He is knowledgeable, to the point, and did not waste any time teaching me what he knew. I would certainly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a knowledgeable and dedicated tutor.

Great Java Project Tutor

Pranjal is a very accommodating, knowledgeable and patient tutor. I am a HS student and taking Java AP. He helped me understand the concepts in Java especially programming techniques. He went over Recursion with examples. He made himself available at a very short notice. I highly recommend Pranjal for any tutoring needs.

Michelle, 4 lessons with Pranjal

Dedicated and conscientious tutor

Pranjal is taking my son to the next level in math! DS is very advanced for his age, but writing problems correctly are a challenge because he is used to doing things mostly in his head and not explain them to others. Pranjal is showing amazing patience and flexibility, and we hope to have him as a tutor for quite a while!

Python and NLTK

Pranjal helped with a clustering analysis using python and NLTK. He is very knowledgeable and takes his time to explain complex concepts. I was able to successfully write a script that generated a clustering dendogram with valuable insights.

Destinie, 7 lessons with Pranjal

Knowledgeable and practical

Pranjal clarified confusing machine learning theories in a way that was accessible and practical. Furthermore, he is incredibly patient and takes the time to truly ensure that the student has grasped the concept.

Good*100

Paranjal is very patient and efficiently helped me to slove my problems with a very ligical thinking guiding. Highly recommend!

Amy, 13 lessons with Pranjal

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Taught me the fundamentals about System Calls in Linux. It was extremely helpful. He really knew what he was talking about but was also patient with me. Cognizant of the fact that he had to take it slow.
