About Piryanka

I am a graduate of UNC Chapel HIll with a Biology and Math double major. I don't have much tutoring experience besides volunteer tutoring/teaching when I was in high school, and grading Calculus and chemistry homework both in high school and college, but I am patient and love helping people and passing on my knowledge. My subjects of concentration lie primarily in Math. It was always my favorite subject in school, so much so that I attended a national math competition in Washington, D.C., went to a summer math camp in Rhode Island, and received a perfect 800 score on the Math section of the SAT. It is the reason I am currently a part-time student at NC State University, pursuing my Computer Programming Certificate -- computers and math go hand-in-hand.

I soundly believe in positive reinforcement and building upon foundations to help with future courses in the subject. I understand that sometimes the class environment can move too fast and I will work at your pace so as to make sure you understand the necessary concepts before moving onto the next topic. My style of instruction involves repetition and teaching by example. I find that people understand and remember new ideas better if they are allowed to implement them as soon as they are taught. Creating frequent checkpoints ensures that a student is grasping the material and is ready to move on to subsequent topics. On the other hand, if you believe your class is moving too slowly, I will strive to challenge you with problems that require extra thinking and making connections with past material.

If you believe my approach to teaching fits your needs, please don't hesitate to contact me for more information. I am flexible on scheduling weekdays or weekends between 10 am and 8 pm and can meet at West Regional Library.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I am a UNC Chapel Hill graduate with a B.A. in Math and also attended the North Carolina School of Science and Math.

My style of teaching involves repetition, frequent checkpoints and examples, and breaking down problems into small steps. I am patient and try to explain concepts in a simple and straightforward manner as much as possible.

Algebra 2

I graduated from the North Carolina School of Science and Math in Durham, NC and received a B.A. in Math from UNC Chapel Hill.

Piryanka helped my daughter who had an F in high school math get a C in two days! Now my daughter is moving up from the C. I'm sure she will be at a B in no time. We are so lucky we found her.
