About Vishal

When I think of teaching, the first thing that comes to mind is responsibility. As a teacher I feel responsible for the academic performance of my students, and I take great pride in their academic success. Teaching is also very much an integral part of my future career plans, as I plan to apply for academic jobs after I graduate with my PhD. So you can rest assured that I take tutoring very seriously and am always trying to improve my teaching skills.

As a teacher, I have a knack of understanding early the academic needs of a student, and I try to customize my teaching style that best suits them. I also very often incorporate lessons from my experience as a student into my teaching. For e.g. as a student I am not just interested in the solution to a particular problem but instead I am more interested in learning the thinking process that went behind the solution. I like to call it "problem solving skill" and it is independent of any particular subject or area of study. Once you master this skill, learning becomes so much more fun, and that is what I ultimately want for my students - to have fun while learning!!

To highlight some of my teaching credentials, in the past I have worked as a teaching assistant for advanced undergraduate courses at Cornell University, like Computer Architecture (for which I received outstanding teaching award) and Operating Systems. I specialize in Computer Science, especially the following areas -

1. Programming (C, C++, Java, Python)
2. Datastructures and Algorithms
3. Discrete Maths
4. Computer Networking
5. Unix/Linux
6. Computer Architecture
7. Operating Systems

Although my area of expertise is Computer Science, I also have a very solid background in Mathematics (for instance I achieved perfect score in Maths section of my GRE). So if you need a Math tutor to prepare for SAT/GRE/GMAT, I think I will be a very good fit.

I hope to hear from you soon. Cheers!

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.

C

I have been programming in C for past 6 years and it is my favourite programming language. I TAed a class at Cornell where I taught C to undergraduate students.

Computer Science

I am a Computer Science major, and have been doing research in this field for past 2 years.

Networking (Computer)

My PhD research focuses on Computer Networks. It is the field of Computer Science I am most qualified at.

Python

I do programming in Python almost everyday. I have taken courses in Python during my undergrad, and I also have experience teaching Python to high school students in the past.
