About Ved

I have a PhD in Engineering and during my education I did a lot of math, complicated math! From the very early age, I discovered that I enjoy teaching math and I am good at it. Over the years, I have tutored a variety of students - middle school, high school, college undergraduates and adults. I have taught several math subjects (Prealgebra, Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Precalculus, calculus, Trigonometry etc.), physics, computer programming and robotics. In my day job, I apply mathematics and programming skills to find answers to complex biological problems.

I also have New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS) teaching credential. As part of the NYAS afterschool STEM mentoring program, I completed the curriculum workshop on specific teaching and mentoring techniques geared towards teaching math and robotics. I, then, went on to mentor middle school students in a public school in the Bronx for more than a year. My mentoring culminated in my students making all the way to the finals of a nation-wide robotics event.

My teaching philosophy is to explain the topic by solving problems. So, I dive into problems right away, gauge which aspect of problem solving skills the student is lacking and help him/her go over the hump. Along the way, I talk about formulas/equations etc., give tips on speeding up the calculations and, most importantly, draw their attention to the silly mistakes. One of my other styles is to relate problems to each other and by doing so, I reinforce the concept being studied. I am a result-oriented tutor and constantly check with students about their performance in tests and exams.

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.

Computer Programming

As part of my engineering education, I learned many programming languages like JAVA, C etc. and have been doing computer programming for more than a decade. I regularly use computer programming for image analysis and have published papers in this area.

Very thorough tutor! — Ved helped me to "think algebraically". Very patient and thorough. Explains concepts and will go over problems until the student is able to grasp the concept and become confident to execute problems on their own. I highly recommend Ved. However, I should have signed up on WyzAnt earlier in the semester so that I would have been able to obtain a higher grade. I only met with Ved once and it wa ...
