I have a Master's Degree in Mathematics, a Degree in Education, and I am certified to teach in a gifted setting. I have been working as a math teacher for more than 20 years. In addition, I am also working as an Adjunct faculty, facilitating math courses for the Online University. Besides this, I have been tutoring students in various math courses – Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Statistics, ACT Math/Science Prep, and Math portion of the SAT. I have also helped middle school students with their math needs.
Teaching mathematics to high school students is a challenge and I enjoy every minute of it. I believe that if students see success, they would be more willing to put in effort in learning what you have to offer. My beliefs and thoughts about teaching the subject have changed over the years and have been guided by the students I teach and their needs.
The main concern people have is not the fear of math, but the fear of failure. Math is intimidating and hard for quite a lot of people. My goal as a mathematics teacher is to detect and fill gaps of students' prior knowledge, reduce math anxiety, and motivate students to make an effort to learn mathematics and eventually become better at problem solving.
For assessing a student, I always see growth and periodically measure it by checking their understanding. If a student feels positive and has learned something which they did not know before entering the class, I feel accomplished.
I look forward to working with your family!
Outstanding Math Tutor
Sarika was an outstanding math tutor and helped our daughter prep for a very challenging Praxis test that measured multiple math skill sets. We have had experience over the years with many tutors, but none come close to the competence of Sarika. Our daughter was very pleased with her helpful and nurturing manner. She is not too tough, but tough enough to get the job done. It takes a skilled teacher to adjust tactics for each student. I have no doubt that Sarika has that skill set. I strongly encourage those who need help in the math department to seek her out. You will be pleased and your child will be grateful.Abbey , 7 lessons with Sarika
Sarika Helped my son feel more confident in his abilities with pre-cal and provided he left feeling reassured. We will definitely go back prior to test!MICHAEL, 1 lesson with Sarika
Knowledgeable and Patient
Sarika has been a wonderful help to my daughter getting ready for her finals for Algebra 2. Patient and kindness helps keep frustration from away from learning. Thank you Sarika.Annamarie, 2 lessons with Sarika
My daughter has learned so much in the short time she has spent with Sarika. She is very patient and will spend as much time as necessary to make sure my daughter understands a problem. She is very easy to schedule time with too. We have a tendency to ask late for a session and she has always found a way to fit us in. We will look no further for a math tutor because she will be able to help my daughter all the way through her senior year in high school. So happy to have found her.Sherrie, 5 lessons with Sarika

I continue to be impressed by Sarika's knowledge and approach to tutoring. She has been more impactful to my son than most of his classroom teachers. Her patience has helped boost his confidence as his skills improve.Bill, 18 lessons with Sarika
Very thankful for this tutor.
Sarika found a way to relate to and teach my daughter what she needs to succeed on her upcoming ACT. We spent hours on a Kaplan test prep and the hard stuff still didn't click until a few visits with Sarika. We have a couple visits to go but feel like success is around the corner because of this experience.Rita, 6 lessons with Sarika
I just got done with my 3rd tutor lesson, and it is going great. I'm building more confidence every time I meet with Sarika K. My goal is to increase my ACT score, and so far I feel that I will definitely do so. Thank you Sarika!!Alexis, 8 lessons with Sarika
Great Math Tutor!
Sarika is a blessing for my daughter and myself! Sarika is patient, thorough, very knowledgeable and passionate about helping my daughter gain back her confidence in math and helping her to succeed. I love seeing my daughter all excited after a tutor session because she finally understands the math concept she struggled with in her math class. Thank you Sarika!Jennifer, 2 lessons with Sarika
