This summer, I found out late in the short semester that my son was flunking his summer school Chemistry class- the one and last class he needed to pass in order to graduate High School. In desperation I started contacted a lot of tutors, but unfortunately they all declined stating it was probably too late for them to do any good. That is, all except Shan! Who said "it's never too late to try". With only 2 weeks left of school, Shan took up the challenge that scared the other tutors away, and was successful in turning my son's test grades around from earlier E's to B's on his last 2 and final tests to help him earn enough points to pass the class to graduate. He was just fantastic with my son, and definitely earned my respect. I just couldn't thank him enough! I only wish I had started him tutoring my son years ago. There wouldn't have been any need for my son to attend summer school, that's for sure. I believe he would have been on the honor roll instead.
Shan was very patient with me. He was able to explain important concepts in a very understandable way. It was very helpful!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Santanu is extremely good tutor. He was able to cover lots of things in an hour. He explained everything in great detail. I read his all reviews and I can see why people rated him 5 stars
I would highly recommend Santanu for anyone struggling with Calculus! He explains every problem in detail to make sure you understand and makes the problems not seem so intimidating. I was taking an online Calculus class that was very challenging but, with his help, was able to pass with flying colors! He is a great tutor.
I needed help with math for the GRE and Santanu has been extremely helpful. I'm confident my score will increase in comparison to my practice test thanks to the help of Santanu.
Santanu helped me out with my physics homework and explained all the details so I could understand the problems. He's very patient.
Santanu B is very competent in geometry. My daughter received a 100% on a test after only a few minutes of explaining the lesson
Explained things in new ways that made each concept understandable. My daughter went up a math level after working with Santana for only a couple months. She even wants to continue working with him during the summer to begin to learn geometry.
Santanu has been a great teacher to my son Billy. Makes Chemistry very easy to understand for him, even the most complex concepts. Santanu is able to fully prepare Billy for exams. He is very flexible and responsive. My son reaches out directly when he needs help or clarification. Very highly recommend!
Santanu explained the math better than the teacher and my son was able to pick it up quickly. Looking forward to improved grades!
Shan quickly worked with my son to help him understand concerns about upcoming test. With his help my son was successful on his test.THANK YOU!
He is very knowledgeable and patient. What I like about him is that he asks questions to know where the student is and explains the concepts very clearly. I would highly recommend him.
He worked with my 8th grade son for an hour. My son now understands the concepts well. Another great session!!
Very friendly and makes sure you understand the material. Also seems to take pride in tutoring. He seems to really care that you succeed. Highly recommend
Very knowledgeable and patient. We reviewed some chemistry concepts and my old exam papers. He gave me suggests and advice on how to improve my answers to achieve better result.
Santanu is a patient, knowledgeable, and caring tutor who explains mathematics in a way students can relate to and understand. He helped me improve my grade in calculus by making the material easier to understand in ways my professors couldn't. Thanks to his teaching capability, I finally passed the class, and with a good grade too! Santanu is an excellent tutor that I highly recommend to anyone struggling with any subject in math.
Santanu helped me prepare for my organic chemistry final. With his help I ended up getting an A on the final exam. Currently he is preparing me for the dental admissions test.
He was great! Was able to clarify and explain a lot about Physics and math! He makes notes which is very helpful to understand when he's explaining. Also very patient. I definitely would see him again!
My first session w/ Santanu made me feel ready to accomplish chemistry w/ a more optimistic approach. My teacher skips steps and makes the subject difficult while Santanu makes more sense. I will definitely rely on him for further instruction.
Santanu is a very knowledgable and patient tutor. Has tutored many students from OCC, so he knows the teachers and their habits and methods.
He taught my daughter how to analyze her Physics problems, gave her helpful tips, helped her understand concepts regarding physics. Very well explained, a great help- She did her physics homework last night in less than 10 mins. Great help!
My son has been struggling with pre-calculus and he said after one hour of tutoring that Santanu explained it in a way that he understood.
My son had one lesson with him and we were impressed how efficient he was in his knowledge and his teaching skills . He was able to cover more material in an hour as compared to what was taught in class in a week. We were very pleased with him and also the fact that he can teach math physics and chemistry.
I am so happy I met Santanu. He is a great tutor. I've learned a lot from him and love chemistry. He makes it easy to understand. I would highly recommend him as your tutor. Thumbs up!!
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 have tutored several students in the math portion of the ACT. During the first few sessions, I cover all topics tested on the ACT Math section. Then we discuss test taking strategies for the ACT. I periodically have the student take sample ACT exams under timed conditions to gauge their progress.
College Reading and Learning Certified Tutor.
BS in Mathematics + Chemistry
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 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 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.
I work as a tutor at Oakland Community College. Several students come in weekly to get help with finite math. I have successfully helped several students in understanding this subject.
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.
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 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.
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.
