Hi my name is Shan, I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics,with a minor in chemistry and physics. I am a CRLA ( College Reading and Learning Association) certified tutor and held the position of head math and science tutor at Oakland Community College. I have several years of experience in tutoring chemistry, math and physics. I have tutored students ranging from elementary school level to college level. My teaching style involves detailed explanation of the concepts prior to application. I enjoy working with students and helping make difficult subjects possible to learn.One advantage of tutoring is the opportunity to customize your teaching style to the student. This is what I do as a tutor.I am looking forward to sharing my experience and knowledge with you. The classes I have tutored include: Chemistry, AP Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physics, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-calculus, Calculus 1, 2, 3, and Differentials Equations.

Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 covers algebra, trigonometry, probability and some statistics. The algebra part focuses on factoring and solving equations. The trigonometry portion focuses on the right triangle and the unit circle. Students also learn how graph trigonometric functions. Basic statistics is also covered, such as how to find the mean, median and mode given a data set. I have strong a expertise in all the topics covered in Algebra 2.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is one of my favorite subjects to tutor. I believe in order for a student to succeed in Calculus, they must have a very strong algebra background. In the first session, I review algebra skills the student needs to succeed in calculus. I have tutored students in both single variable calculus and multi-variable calculus.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Chemistry is one the subjects i specialize in. I have tutored both high school students and college students in chemistry. I have prepared several students for the AP Chem exam and also the Chemistry Olympiad. I tutor almost any level of chemistry, ranging from high school chemistry all the way through quantum mechanics.
Physics,

Physics

General Physics can be though of as being divided into two parts. The first part covers statics,dynamics, newtons laws, fluid mechanics and waves. The second part of physics covers electricity, magnetism and optics. Having a strong background in trigonometry helps in physics. In my first meeting with a student i go over parts of trigonometry the student needs in order to be successful in physics.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus expands on the topics covered in algebra 2. The concept of the limit is introduced to the student during Precalculus. This is an important concept as it will show up again in more advanced math classes. Trigonometric proofs which a lot of students find challenging are also covered in Precalculus.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I have tutored several students in the math portion of the SAT. During the first few sessions, I cover all topics tested on the SAT Math section. Then we discuss test taking strategies for the SAT. I have created several worksheets that prepare the student for the math section of the SAT. I also have created a list of some classic question types that show up frequently on the math section.

Genetics,

Genetics

I took a genetics class at the undergraduate level and earned a 4.0 in it. I have tutored 2 students in Genetics and they both improved their grade by 2 letters. The part of genetics most students struggle with is probability, due to my math background i am able to make probability easy for the student to understand.
Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

I have had over 20 credits of chemistry at the undergraduate level. I earned A's in both the organic chemistry classes I took. I have tutored several students in organic chemistry. The focus of organic chemistry is reaction mechanisms and synthesis problems. A reaction mechanism details the steps through which the products of a chemical reaction are formed.

Great teacher

Shan was very patient with me. He was able to explain important concepts in a very understandable way. It was very helpful!

Ryan, 8 lessons with Santanu

Very prompt and Clear explanations

I really appreciated how as soon as we met we got started! No time to waste! And I felt very comfortable with his explanations as well as instructions on material I had not seen in years. Very helpful overall!

Natasha, 1 lesson with Santanu

Innovative and Smart

Santanu is not only patient with students, but he has a unique way of teachinf and tutoring that gives students the mindset and strategies to do very well on quizzes and tests. He handles a diverse set of challenging subjects very well and for these reasons I highly recommend Santanu!

Mitchell, 6 lessons with Santanu

great teacher

Santanu teaches in a way that is very clear and conscious. He frequently asks to make sure that I understand the topic and gives example problems to do.

Vijval, 7 lessons with Santanu

Knowledgeable tutor

Santanu has been wonderful with teaching math and physics. Also helpful with reviewing for quizzes and tests. Always on time and great to work with. Has helped my son a lot.

Elena, 29 lessons with Santanu

Knowledgable and Patient Tutor

Santanu has been helping my high school son study physics and Algebra 2. He explains the lessons so my son comes away with a greater understanding than he learned in the classroom.

Michelle, 49 lessons with Santanu

Goes the extra mile to help

My son calls Santanu for assistance with Calculus. Santanu always makes time to meet with him, even when the timing is very late. My son's Calculus grade has improved considerable. Thank you!

Sandi, 5 lessons with Santanu

Great Experience!

Santanu helped my son with AP AB Calculus, specifically integrals and antiderivatives. He was very knowledgeable and explained things very thoroughly. He is a wonderful tutor.

Mindy, 19 lessons with Santanu

Outstanding Tutor!

It's nerve racking to hire someone you've never met but I took a leap of faith based on all the wonderful reviews Santanu had on this site......and everyone is right! He was patient and detail oriented. When the lesson was done he took the time to speak with me (the parent) to explain where my son was with his math and what he needed to succeed.
