About Varun

Hi! My name is Varun, and I am currently an Applied Mathematics Major at The College of New Jersey. I have been tutoring Mathematics for 8 years now, covering subjects ranging from, but not limited to Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Linear Algebra, Multivariable Calculus, Probability, and others. In addition to tutoring students one on one, I have also worked in groups at various tutoring centers. Additionally, I have had the privilege of working with inmates at the Jones Farm Prison in Trenton, NJ, helping them master material to attain their G.E.D over a period of one year. This experience taught me patience, and to use different approaches with students from various backgrounds.

In order to effectively help a student reach his or her academic goals in Mathematics, it is vital that tutors focus on problems, rather than wasting crucial time lecturing the student on the course material. This allows one to focus efforts on specific areas where the student needs help, and target particular needs.

I have enjoyed tutoring Math particularly because my love for it. Sharing that with other people has been a great experience, and something I hope to continue doing for a long time to come.

I enjoy studying probability theory, traveling, and good food.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

During my time as a tutor, I have had the privilege of working with students from a wide array of backgrounds and learning styles. Along with helping in one-on-one and group environments in homes and schools, I got to tutor inmates at the Jones Farm Prison in Trenton, NJ who were working towards their GEDs. This has taught me to adapt to particular situations requiring special attention, and alter my style according to the student's individual needs.

Algebra 1

I am currently a tutor for a student struggling in Algebra I. The student's grade significantly improved upon beginning tutoring. References available upon request.

Calculus

I have been a private and group calculus tutor for the past 4 years, with great success.

Hindi

I am the child of two persons who are natives of India, and who spoke Hindi before they learned how to speak English. Growing up, I was forced to speak Hindi in the household, and became fluent in it before I spoke English. I taught myself how to read and write Hindi as well, because of my own curiosity. I am capable of fluently speaking, and reading and writing the language.

Linear Algebra

I am an Applied Mathematics major at The College of New Jersey, and completed the Linear Algebra course with the MatLab supplement last year with a great score. I feel I have been able to take away the concepts I learned in that year and apply them well in the classes I am taking now. In addition to applying the concepts in my current course, I am applying the MatLab programming skills I took away as well.

SAT Math

I have tutored 3 students in the past for the SAT, all of whom were happy with the results. Personally, I scored a 790 on the Math SAT section, and a 800 on the math SAT II test.
