About Nirlay

Teaching is my passion.

I like to break down whatever skill I'm teaching in the simplest form at first. This means explaining the concept of the skill in a way that the student can understand what it is we are trying to do. I also try to use a pictorial representation of the skill if that is needed. After that I'll show them how I work a problem with that particular skill so they can see firsthand what the thought process is and the steps that are needed to use that particular skill whether it is adding fractions or solving equations, etc. Then I'll give the student a problem to do on their own while I guide them through the steps. If they get off on a particular step I'll correct them immediately and get them on the right path. Once I feel they understand what is going on and how to work a problem, I'll give them a problem to do without me watching them and see if they can get the answer right by themselves. Then I'll correct the problem and if they got the answer right, great, and if they got it wrong I'll then analyze which step the student made their mistake on and we'll work to correct it.

As I was growing up, I have found that repetition and practice is the key to success. It helps you retain the material. Once I teach a concept, I will make similar problems and ask the student to do them at a later time. I guarantee with this approach, the student will gain self confidence with every class.

My objective is to teach a child not only the material, but how they best learn so that they can teach themselves. I enjoy using applicable real life references that are relevant to the child so that they will more easily grasp the concepts. I believe a personalized approach works best.

I would encourage the student to develop good examples/discover examples provided in the text. I would ask leading questions to help students learn and understand the material. I would be patient and provide appropriate "think" time.

Above all, I would like to make the experience fun.

Over the past 25 years, I have tutored high school, middle school, elementary school students in math, algebra, calculus, chemistry, SAT Math, and general study skills. My preference is to tutor math, algebra, calculus, physics, physical science. Math is the subject for which I have the greatest passion. I also teach my kids ( 13 and 15) Science and Math. I completed my Bachelors in Electrical Engineering in 1991, MS in Design Engineering in 1992 from The University of Leicester, England and MBA from Babson College in 2006. I have won a Commonwealth Scholarship do to my Master's in the UK. I have been working in the IT / Telecom area for the past 20 years. Right now, I work as a Cloud Platform Architect at a Tier-1 Telco.
