Hi my name is Santanu, 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 1,

Algebra 1

College Reading and Learning Certified Tutor. BS in Mathematics + Chemistry
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.

Very helpful

My son saw Shan and thought he was great. It helped him understand through some of the difficulties he was experiencing. He plans to see him again. Thank you Shan!

Sandy, 1 lesson with Santanu

Great teacher

Santanu B. is a great tutor and a stellar explainer. He was able to allow me to fully comprehend the material I struggled with in my Physics class.

Marya, 2 lessons with Santanu

Prepared, friendly

My son attends an IB school. Shan was prepared, friendly and professional. He dove right into the content and was able to spontaneously create original problems which provided a diversity to the material my son appreciated. Highly recommended!

Julie, 2 lessons with Santanu

No longer stuck

I am an adult currently taking a class and was absolutely “stuck” for 3 weeks on a scientific concept with a test approaching. Santanu made everything clear and where it made sense to me in a matter of 10 minutes! We went over various examples until I was able to work though practice equations on my own. My confidence shot up!!

Adrienne, 1 lesson with Santanu

Great teacher for both simple and complicated concepts

Santanu tutors my 10th grader in Math, Chemistry and Physics. We schedule a session and whichever subject my son needs help with that day, Santanu can quickly jump in and help him comprehend concepts, whether simple or complicated. He is reliable and professional.

Barbara, 7 lessons with Santanu

Best Tutor Ever!

Wow! My son would not stop raving about Santanu. He was patient, simplified complex problems, and gave my son a big boost of confidence. Thank you so much for your help! You made a big difference. On his weekends home from MSU I will definitely be booking you!

Stacey, 3 lessons with Santanu

Great at explaining, extremely patient

Shan has a knack for explaining Orgo! He knows exactly how make concepts simple to understand, and does a great job explaining. If he doesn't immediately know the answer to a problem, he will look it up and be sure to get back to you with the solution. I am so grateful to have found Shan! Would absolutely recommend. Best tutor I have ever worked with.

Brittany, 3 lessons with Santanu

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!
