About Shyam

Hello! My name is Shyam, and I am currently a junior standing student at the University of Maryland, College Park. I am currently pursuing three degrees in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Economics and have maintained a 4.0 GPA thus far. That being said, I have taken many semesters worth of mathematics covering calculus and other branches of math. In addition, I've been employed as a mathematics instructor for a math tutoring center for over a year and am confident with my abilities in most areas of math. I primarily teach trigonometry, first-semester calculus, college algebra, and introductory Java for computer science, but am open to teaching other lower level math courses as well. My overarching goal as a tutor is to instill a sense of confidence in math that I worked to get myself.

Up until this point, I have completed several math courses, up to and including linear algebra, multivariable calculus, and differential equations. Regarding computer science, I have taken programming classes covering the Java and C programming languages. That said, I have experience teaching anything from Calculus BC (or Calculus II) to Kindergarten-level math to introductory Java. I am passionate about math and computer science, and I genuinely enjoy teaching the subjects. I am an effective tutor because I don't over-complicate concepts that don't need to be complicated--I teach precisely what you need to know in an efficient, understandable way.

I encourage you to reach out to me if you are struggling in your classes, or if you just want to get ahead! I can help with homework, prepare you for standardized tests, or teach you an entirely new topic. I am available most days and I will meet you at a location convenient to you--please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you!

Note to UMD students: I am most familiar tutoring the courses MATH113, MATH115, MATH120, MATH140, CMSC131, and CMSC132. However, if you need assistance in another class, double check with me and I will let you know if I would be a good fit for you. I will try to get back to you ASAP!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

Of all types of math, algebra is one of my strongest. With about a year's experience of tutoring algebra, I feel as though I have a firm handle on communicating it clearly and effectively.

Computer Science

I am currently a computer science major at the University of Maryland, College Park. I have been programming for approximately three years, and have taken the college level classes CMSC131 (Object Oriented Programming I), CMSC132 (Object Oriented Programming II), and am currently taking CMSC216 (Introduction to Computer Systems). I earned an A+ in CMSC132, a subject that I would be more than happy to tutor in.

Seriously - Shyam is THE.Best.Tutor.Ever!!!!

Shyam is top-notch and could totally charge more than he does, but he truly cares about sharing his knowledge, learning to become a better educator, and being a business professional. I’m an adult student forced to take a college algebra course to enter my program. I have not taken algebra since high school and am old enough to be Shyam's mom. Shyam never made me feel intimidated or stupid. He i
