About Nikhil

My love for education comes from being blessed with the chance to observe some really great teachers as a child. I have had the chance to work with struggling 5th grade students in Maryland and helped them reach math proficiency for that year. I went back to school for my certification in special education, so that I could reach more students through learning about accommodating to all students and documenting where there were struggles to meet the needs of all my students. I have worked as a tutor in Florida, NY, and I enjoyed every minute that I worked there. What I like most about tutoring is that since the work is one on one, there are plenty of chances to see that acknowledgement, when the student realizes what is being said and the subject matter clicks. I live for the moments of clarity, it is what I find most enjoyable about working with students.

My method is to take the subject matter and break it down into the skills, so that the student is taking each problem step by step. This way it is possible to see where the student is struggling and it makes each math problem not seem so overwhelming. I usually plan it out where I am doing some math problems together with the student and then provide some problems to be completed independently, in order to see how much they remember on their own.

I specialize in teaching math skills up to middle school. Some of the subjects that I cover are Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Prealgebra, and Trigonometry. As a student, I found math to be a struggle, until I had a great math teacher in middle school. I feel that since math is something that I succeeded at after struggling for a few years; it has made me more understanding to students who do not find it easy to understand. I try to put myself into the shoes of the student and look at the lessons from their eyes.

I try to be flexible with time. I do have a 24 hour cancelation policy, and will try to provide time for make-up lessons.

I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you achieve success in your studies.

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.
