About Ganesh

Hello! My name is Ganesh. I'm currently in my third year studying mathematics at Northeastern University in Boston. Prior to that, I graduated with an Associate in Arts degree from St. Petersburg College in Tarpon Springs, where I was a math tutor for a year. As it was a public walk in tutoring center, I was able to work with a wide variety of students of all skill levels, from fourteen year olds just starting high school, to retired seniors who simply wanted to learn for the enjoyment of it. I have also worked as an assistant and mentor for elementary and middle school children at the Boys and Girls Club of Countryside. When tutoring, I do what I can to break down problems, be detailed in explanations, and be as clear and simple as possible, and I enjoy working with all students.

The subjects I mainly tutor in are foundational math, prealgebra, algebra 1 and 2, precalculus and trigonometry, statistics, and calculus 1. Other more complicated subjects I can help with depending on the specific topic are calculus 2, differential equations, linear algebra, dynamical systems, and numerical analysis.

I had a great experience tutoring and helping students while I was at SPC, and that "aha!" moment when a student finally understood a problem or a concept was always worth it, no matter how long it may have taken or how many repetitions were necessary. I greatly enjoy tutoring, and now that I'm home for the summer I would love to help out and get back into it!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a lesson. I would also consider online tutoring if it is not possible to meet in person or if you would prefer that. I look forward to working with you or your child!

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 first took algebra 1 in middle school and have taken a few more algebra classes since, receiving A's in all of them. Some concepts from algebra 1 I still use in my current math classes since algebra is such a fundamental subject. This was also a very common topic to tutor at my old tutoring job, so I'm familiar with many of the concepts students tend to have trouble with.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 much like algebra 1 is something I've gone over countless times and still use much of in the math classes I'm taking now. I've worked with many students on the subject and am comfortable explaining concepts clearly.

Calculus

I have taken a few calculus classes and received A's in all of them. I continue to use calculus in one way or another in all my math classes since it's such a foundational subject to higher math. Often times than not, students have to take at least calculus 1 no matter what their major is. That being said, I have experience tutoring and helping students of all backgrounds to develop and work on fundamental ideas to succeed in calculus.

Differential Equations

I've taken two DE classes, differential equations and differential equations with linear algebra, receiving A's in both of them. I have also taken nonlinear dynamics, using nonlinear differential equations in the context of dynamical systems. Differential equations can seem intimidating because of how long the problems are, but in my experience I've learned to take students focus away from that, and to simply go step by step to make sure problems are done properly and are clearly understood.

Prealgebra

This is a simple yet very important subject that I have tutored extensively. I try to explain topics and ideas clearly and at a good pace for the student, all while emphasizing certain concepts needed in order to build a strong mathematical foundation.

Precalculus

I have taken precalculus at the high school and college level, receiving A's in both classes. I have covered a lot of material and have worked with many students in this subject, emphasizing the necessary tools and concepts they need to succeed in precalculus and later on calculus.

Statistics

I have taken numerous statistics classes over the past couple years including elementary statistics, statistics for economics, probability and statistics, probability and risk, and statistics and stochastic processes. I've been tutoring stats for the past two years and do well with explaining the ideas and concepts students tend to have problems with.
