Hello! My name is Shyam, and I am currently a senior 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. In the past, I've worked as a Software Engineer for Google and Amazon, have been a math tutor on Wyzant and elsewhere for five years, and have also worked as an undergraduate teaching assistant for three computer science courses over five semesters: CMSC131 (Introductory Java Programming), CMSC132 (More advanced Java and Data Structures), and CMSC216 (C Programming and Assembly). I primarily teach trigonometry, calculus, college algebra, Java, and C, but am open to teaching other courses as well. My overarching goal as a tutor is to instill a sense of confidence in math and computer science that I worked to get myself.

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, CMSC132, and CMSC216. 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!

Shyam is a math wizard

Let me tell you, this guy right here is one of the top tutors that I know of. With such a fantastic personality and a burning passion for math, you can tell that he has this niche for tutoring. He's patient with what he teaches and is always ready to answer any questions you may have. I personally decided to take AP Calculus AB my senior year of high school; but, I wanted more of a challenge. I made a decision to instead take a much more rigorous course to gain more credits--BC Calculus. That's when my search began. I was thankful enough to find Shyam or else I wouldn't have been able to make it. After months of hard work and meet up times with Shyam, I could see my improvement. He taught me the entire BC curriculum even though I was in AB. Flash forward into the first week of May when I had my BC calculus exam. Going into the exam I was really confident with the material that I learned due to Shyams ability to transfer his love of math onto others. I breezed through the test with a hard confidence that I got a 5. It just so happened that I did actually get a 5 on BC! Enough about me, let's talk about the best person ever. Shyam is one of the best people ever, not only is he extremely smart (valedictorian of his senior class, and also taking Calc 3 in his senior year!) but he is also a kindhearted person with so much going for him. Words can not express his truly gentle and persistent view on math. He gets it naturally, always able to think of easy ways to remember math concepts, and he's also able to think of questions to ask you on the spot. Not only this but if you don't understand something, he won't continue explaining it the same way, he switched up his teaching style. He understands that in order to be a fantastic teacher you have to know how to attack the same concept by more than one angle because not everyone is going to understand things the same way. Through long hours and much frustration (on my end!), after constant moments of giving up, there's one thing that always stayed the same--Shyam. Through his funny jokes, his addictive smile, and his persistence to understand concepts, Shyam's primary goal wasn't to just do a job, it was to help me learn to love math and to learn more about the subject he loves so much. I'm so happy to have found Shyam as a tutor and I completely recommend him to everyone. I'm running out of space soon so I just have one last thing to say. If you're on the fence about picking Shyam as your tutor, I'd jump off the fence real quick, he's fantastic. And if you never considered Shyam being your tutor, well then there's something wrong!

Patient

It was just my first session, but he was patient with me. I am a 58 year old who has to take a math class. He is very knowledgeable and met me at ground zero in order to help me prepare for a test. He even gave me homework to help me with my next session.
