About Ritu

Educational Qualifications:
B.S. with science and math as majors
B.Ed. with teaching of science and mathematics as majors
MBA in Human Resources

I have been teaching science and mathematics for the past 5 years. The important thing is students love the way I teach and show improvement in their performance.

I have experience working with wide range of age groups including toddlers, middle school and high school students.

I understand that everyone has his/her own unique way of learning, so I make a thorough assessment of abilities of each student and proceed accordingly. I usually take tests regularly and correct the mistakes and provide feedback.

There is no way that the student won't understand what I will teach -- that's my promise.

REGARDING TEACHING HINDI:
I was born and raised in India and am currently living in USA with my husband. I have started teaching Hindi along with science and mathematics to help parents who are trying to teach their kids Hindi; after realizing the importance of teaching Hindi and realizing lack of really good materials, I not only wanted to make learning Hindi fun for kids but also for parents to find such materials to teach Hindi.

Sure there are tons of websites and resources out there that provide Hindi materials but none of them focus on actually being able to write or read Hindi. Most of them are either story books or some animated CD/DVDs with games, songs, etc.

Hence my goal is to create various materials and worksheets that are at par with the other "ABC" or "English books" that our kids are used to. I decided to choose graphics which are not very ethnic but rather appealing to young kids. All activities, worksheets are geared toward little kids, so they can have fun while they learn! Moreover, this is the way kids are taught Hindi in India, too.

Take care and hope you have fun teaching your kids! As my dad says, "Lage Raho"! :-)

Teaching is my hobby and I love it.

Thank you so much Jim for your feedback. I am very happy to know that Tim's grades improved. I really enjoyed teaching him as he too was very much involved in studies. Best thing about him was that he was curious and he had a lot of questions that I enjoyed answering.
Thanks again.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I teach Algebra 1 and Algebra II in high school. I hold a Teacher's License.

Hindi

Being basically from India (25 years), I am well versed with Hindi language. I have also studied Punjabi language up to my Bachelor's degree. I always scored A's in this language examinations. I am confident in my ability to teach Hindi from scratch.

USCIS

I went through all the instructions and interviews required by USCIS to file for my own US citizenship. I can help other immigrants go through the interview process and I feel confident to help them with practice according to their needs. Mock interviews and written and oral tests are the ways I use.

Very knowledgeable

Ritu is teaching me geometry basics and she is very patient as my memory is not as good as it should be. She is also very easy to talk to and she explains things in details. What I liked the most was I learned so much is one session. I was able to take my placement test and pass it. I will use Ritu in the future if I need help with math again.
