If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.
As a student approaches a subject, there are two major factors to success: a solid foundation in the fundamentals and skills at solving problems. The fundamentals are very important for understanding why aspects of the subject work the way they do and to be able to build on one aspect to understand others. Being able to solve problems means the student can apply what they have learned in useful ways.
As a tutor, my role is to insure that the student is proficient in both parts of learning the subject, using a systematic approach which is part of the general learning processes. The first step is to identify the student's strengths and weaknesses in the subject. The aspects where there is difficulty can then be addressed in smaller pieces, which is less overwhelming. As the student grasps the pieces, there is a sense of accomplishment, making continuing progress easier. As the fundamentals and problem solving get stronger, test results will reflect the improvement.
I have a BS in physics and PhD in physics (astrophysics) from MIT, doing extensive teaching and tutoring along the way. I created and taught "A Crash Course in C", a 16-hour course, which is still being taught today. Since then, I worked at a software company, using Python and Perl to do part of my job. I am now returning to the world of education, one aspect being tutoring.

The best of the best! I've had 3 different calculus tutors from this site, but Anand is by far the most helpful.
Anand helped me succeed in a coding course I was struggling with through his patient and thorough explanations. He always steered me towards discovering the answer for myself as opposed to simply spoon-feeding it to me. A fantastic tutor overall. Definitely recommend!
Anand was our son's Astro tutor for Harvard SSP term. Anand was very punctual and dependable, and a very good and knowledgeable tutor. Thanks, Anand!!!
Anand has come twice to teach Algebra 2 to my 10th grade daughter. She missed a lot of classes due to medical reasons and had a lot of catching up to do. Anand was super - very clear explaining the material - my daughter was able to take the test and succeed. He was very professional, arriving on time, and also very knowledgeable. He will definitely come back for another lesson and I would recommend him to anybody that is looking for a fantastic math teacher.
Time to update: I would just like to ad that my daughter took several more lessons with Anand after this last review in April and she was able to get 100% on her math final. She got every single question correct. Thank you, Anand, for doing a fantastic job!
My 10 year old son was able to connect with Anand right away and the session went so well they continued working for 2 hours. I could tell that Anand knew his subject, knew how to relate to kids, and made sure that my son was understanding what he was discussing.
He was effective right from the beginning and I sensed this would work well and it absolutely did. Anand is engaging, easy to understand, and very focused on his student. I quickly signed on for several follow-up lessons for my son. My son and I both feel he got great value from his first tutoring session with Anand.
Anand explains complex problems simply and made sure I understood at each point before moving on. I would recommend him highly as a tutor.
Anand helped me review algebra and geometry in preparation for the GRE. He did a great job of explaining things and was very patient with me. I have a tendency to want to skip straight to the end without learning all of the steps to get there, but he kept me on track and got me to where I needed to go.
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.
I developed and taught "A Crash Course in C" at MIT for 6 years. It was a 16-hour class covering all of the language. I also used C for my graduate school research and at my job, so I can give real-world context when tutoring.
As an undergraduate and graduate student in physics, applied mathematics, including calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra, was one of the main tools used to solve problems. When teaching physics, if the student was not comfortable with the math needed to understand the material, I filled in the gaps.
I developed and taught "A Crash Course in C" at a university for 6 years. It was a 16-hour class covering all of the language. I used C, Perl, and Python for my graduate school research and at my job, as a software development manager, so I can give real-world context when tutoring.
To do part of my job as a software development manager, I taught myself Python, building on other languages and general programming skills. Having taught myself, and then used it extensively, puts me in a good position to tutor others.
I have been playing competitive volleyball for over a decade, and have played in the USAV Adult Nationals six years. For three seasons, I coached a junior olympics club team (16U, 17U, 16U). I am Impact certified, the first level of the USAV coach's accreditation program. I have also coached an adult skills clinic for two years.
Anand M. passed a background check on 4/2/14. The check was ordered by Anand through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to Anand, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
