MATH (Core Math, Algebra, Geometry, Calculus), Statistics, SPSS, Solidworks and Computing are some of the main areas covered, though other subjects are offered as well. I've had my education with three university degrees. I teach students and adults of all ages. I've helped numerous students understand and complete their homework/assignments, projects and get better grades. Others have successfully triumphed tests required for admission to colleges and professional courses. It is a magical experience to see you succeed!

For Math students, my approach is is to build a mathematical understanding and stronger fundamentals. Simply put, make things simple, break them down into clusters, help you recognize your strengths and work upon your areas of improvement. I will walk you through step-by-step in solving problems at a pace you can cope up with.

Statistics may seem complicated but it is a wonderful subject to dive into if you've a liking for numbers, data, analysis and interpretation. SPSS is a powerful tool and has developed establish itself as an integral software for statistical analysis.

Computer has been an everyday companion for me forever. I am quite effective making good use of it every single day. Whether you are completely new to the PC or want to advance your computing skills, you can count on me.

If you need assistance with only selective topics or homework / project assignment in any of the subjects, I can help you with that as well.

And lastly, I've been told I have patience, as I never get tired to explain the same thing 'n' number of times, if that is what it takes. Well, only thing I say to that is "I consider my job is done only if it's done well."

So let's get started! :)

GRE,

GRE

I took the GRE test earlier during my academic career and aced it with a top-notch score (highest in college and first student to take the computer-based testing). This was one of the crucial factors that helped me get admission into a top graduate program of a highly ranked US university and with scholarship. Since I also tutor for Math and possess strong analytical and reasoning skills, taking up GRE again has come naturally to me.
Microsoft PowerPoint,

Microsoft PowerPoint

I've been using MS Office for over 20 years. I've made numerous professional and executive presentations on PowerPoint, Excel, and Word.
QuickBooks,

QuickBooks

I use QuickBooks on a regular basis and have first-hand experience with it. It is a powerful and versatile software tool, whether you are in a small business, contractor, accountant, or even self-employed. If you want to set up a new business or already own one and want to load it in QuickBooks, I can work with you. Depending on your needs, I can guide you with the wide range of tasks accomplished in QB, like creating Invoices, estimates, work orders, purchase orders, and so on. As you may know, numerous features are available in QB, and there maybe some that have not been explored before and are quite useful. More importantly, QB can generate a number of reports that summarize and give the most crucial information to run your business. If you need your staff to get hands on using QB, I can help you with it as well.
Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word

Computer

AutoCAD,

AutoCAD

I can help you if you need to complete any project in AutoCAD either on a quick basis or as a long-term development model. Being a mechanical engineer myself and having had close experience with design & manufacturing, I know how critical it is to get all the dimensions and corners right. Since tutoring has constraints of time and I cater to wider pool of students, I do not take lessons for teaching this design software. But if you are stuck with something and need assistance to figure it out or complete it, please feel free to get in touch with me.
Microsoft Access,

Microsoft Access

I have hands-on experience using Microsoft Access, whether it is creating Databases from scratch or modifying them, creating and working with tables, forms, data filtering, collation, queries, creating and running reports, etc. I started learning MS Access back in college days from a self-interest point of view. But it was actually at work, where I saw its application. And as I used it myself at work, I gradually realized how powerful this tool is in Data Management and reporting, and fulfilling its prime objective of managing our data requirements.
Microsoft Outlook,

Microsoft Outlook

I have first-hand experience using Microsoft Outlook for 15+ years for professional work on a daily basis. I am proficient using it for Emails as well as for other features such as scheduling Meetings, Appointments, Tasks to complete, Assigning Tasks to someone else, Reminders, Notes, updating Address Book/Contacts, reviewing Calendar, etc. I propose to teach with a step-by-step method approach, right from creating a new mail, modifying its format, etc. and covering the various features of this software. Or it can be customized as per the needs of the student. I believe it is a simple but a powerful tool for communication, so college going students should definitely learn it, it will give them a jump start once they have a professional job after college.

SPSS Program

A.P. taught me the use of the statistical program SPSS. His knowledge of the major functions of this program greatly helped me navigate through my college statistics course. I highly recommend him!!!

Joseph, 1 lesson with A P

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor!

AP is a wonderful and patient tutor. He cares if you are learning the material. If I was unable to understand a concept, he was patient and helped explain it in different ways until I understood the material. I am utilizing SPSS for my statistics class and AP was able to teach me how to use this program. I would highly recommend AP as a tutor. I have recommended friends to him and they agree that he is amazing!

Sara, 1 lesson with A P

Solid Geometric Design Tutor

A P has a solid handle on design analysis concepts. He was able to take a design that I presented him, and he improved on it based on the specific areas where my design was deficient. He thought about adding support underneath my design to strengthen it and I hadn’t thought of that previously. He’s an excellent resource to solidworks input.

Kimberly, 11 lessons with A P

Knowledgeable and patient

AP was very knowledgeable and patient during tutoring. I was seeking additional help for a college physics course that I was completely lost on. He was extremely patient in helping me grasp simple concepts like conversion problems. He was very thourough and made sure to explain each step. He was more than willing to explain things more than once and offered different techniques and explanations to help me understand. He also very flexible for appointment days and times, also willing to accommodate to my schedule.

Great Teacher

Very patient and good teaching techniques. AP will help and guide you to success and not make you feel dumb for asking any questions.

Outstanding SolidWorks 2016 Tutoring

Outstanding Lesson. A P was very thorough and knowledgeable...We went through several lessons and I had plenty of time to ask questions. A P was very patient and he didn't want to close out the lesson without making sure that all of my questions were answered

Ryan, 10 lessons with A P

Knowledgeable Graduate Level Tutor

AP was very helpful teaching me graduate level statistics and calculus. I have had a difficult time understanding these subjects and he made it a lot easier. He responded quickly to my messages and helped tutor me at a short notice. I appreciate his thorough help/knowledge and would recommend him to anyone!

Maggie, 1 lesson with A P

knowledgeable and patient with my child

AP was thorough and took his time explaining the lesson to my child. He taught a step the instructor missed making the content even easier to understand. My child was comfortable working one on one with AP and his willingness to meet with us one on one was definitely a plus! My child felt more confident after the first lesson with AP. My husband and I are happy that we found AP as we will surely utilize his services for the future, this won't be our last lesson. Our other child may need his services for Science and I am hopeful that he can help with that as well! Definitely worth it!

Tutor responded:

Greatly appreciate your comments! These are certainly motivating and I will strive to offer the best I can in the future as well!

Knowledgeable and patient

Helped me revive my math skills and showed me ways to improve. Worked on methods to solve problems in my head without use of a calculator. Very excited to learn more!
