About Vikram

I am currently a Flight Instructor at Kalamazoo Airport, and I will be starting training with Endeavor Air in May, with the forecast of being an airline pilot for them by October.

I took AP Calculus in high school my senior year of 2010-2011, and took the AP test, scoring a 5 out of 5. I also took the SAT II for Math I, and Math II, and got a 720 and 680 respectively. I have tutored math at several tutoring services all over the country. I have also tutored privately for ACT math, and caused my student to raise his score by seven points just on the math section alone.

I find that when it comes to teaching math, a lot of the key concepts are ignored in the process of teaching the more advanced concepts. In the four years that I have tutored math, whether it be for compensation, or just to help a friend out around finals, a lot of the problems I have noticed are that, because the student does not understand the whole concept of the problem, they lack the motivation to actually do it. I do not "give" the answer to a problem and move onto another problem; often I will prod and hint at an answer to a problem. Often times, to make sure a certain concept is grasped, I will make up my own problem on the spot and test the student's understanding. If it is a multiple choice problem, I will ask the student which answer they think it is, and then without saying whether they are right or wrong, ask them to explain their reasoning to me.

I have tutored quite a lot of students, ranging from ones who actively participated and wanted to get the A+ in the class, to the ones who wanted to scrape by with a C average. I have tutored people of all ages, ranging from kindergarten to college students.

Very knowledgeable and very patient tutor

He taught me Algebra 2 logarithms and was able to explain it in detail that made it very easy for me to grasp the concept and overcome my fear of tackling the questions. He even gave me a test to make sure that my concepts were clear. He is highly recommended for anyone needing tutoring in maths especially if looking for a tutor who teaches in a very skillful way!
