Kind, Experienced Math Tutor with PhD

Kiran P.
Dear students,

I believe that anyone can learn anything, with the right guidance. I've taught hundreds of people, from middle schoolers to adult learners. Whatever you're working on, we will tackle it together!

A little information about me: I have a BA in math, summa cum laude, from Dartmouth College, and a PhD in math from Northwestern University.

I've always been a teacher at heart. In high school, I was a volunteer math tutor. For most of college, I worked as a math tutor and...

Calculus,
#### Calculus

Calculus is one of my favorite math subjects, and itâ€™s the one I have the most experience tutoring. Ever since I started college, almost 20 years ago, calculus tutoring has been one of my main jobs.
Iâ€™ve also taught calculus courses in a university setting - everything from calc 1 to surface integrals and Stokesâ€™ theorem. My teaching evaluations have always been excellent, with many students telling me Iâ€™m the best math teacher they ever had.
Given my PhD in math, Iâ€™m definitely an expert in the subject matter, but Iâ€™m also good at bringing it down to earth. I have a knack for explaining the ideas clearly, simply, and with helpful pictures that can make things a lot less intimidating. Let me be your guide to this challenging but fascinating subject!

Finite Math,
#### Finite Math

As a math Ph.D., I am extremely comfortable with the topics in a finite math course - linear equations, matrices, linear programming, and elementary probability and counting problems. In my many years of tutoring and classroom teaching, Iâ€™ve taught most of these topics multiple times. Iâ€™m also more than capable of helping you with financial math: compound interest, annuities, and amortization. Let me make these ideas clear and simple for you!

Linear Algebra,
#### Linear Algebra

Linear algebra is one of those subjects that can open doors for you. It shows up literally all over the place in pure and applied math. Learning it is like being given a master key.
I can help you get there. As a math PhD, Iâ€™m extremely proficient in linear algebra. Iâ€™m also a skilled, caring teacher, with both tutoring and classroom teaching experience in linear algebra. I have a knack for explaining the ideas clearly and simply, and, where possible, illustrating with pictures. Let me be your guide to this interesting, important subject!

Logic,
#### Logic

As a math Ph.D., Iâ€™m extremely skilled at reading and writing proofs, which are rigorous logical arguments. Logic is the lifeblood of math. I have also, several times, taught a course at Northwestern called Foundations of Higher Mathematics (Math 300), which is an introduction to logic, set theory, and proofs. I have helped dozens of students through these challenging, rewarding ideas, and I can do the same for you!

## Best Tutor

I suck at math and although Iâ€™m in a smart college the professors donâ€™t teach a way I can learn. Kiran is the best tutor Iâ€™ve ever had I am able to do problems by myself right after.

## Very good tutor

He taught me proofs and logic very well and slowly so I could understand and catch on well. I was really struggling. Thank you so much Kiran, I really appreciate itðŸ˜Š
