About Yuvraj

I possess years of tutoring experience. I specifically excel in mathematics (including Elementary Mathematics, Middle School Mathematics, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, etc.). Further, in light of the fact that I currently tutor a voluminous amount of Elementary Education students, I am pretty familiar with the New York State Common Core approaches.

Most recently, I have been involved with the Iona College "Success Center" as a Volunteer Tutor. I have worked with students in First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, Eighth, and Eleventh Grades. At other tutoring programs, I have worked with students in Fifth Grade, Eight, and Twelfth Grades.

I tremendously enjoy tutoring in mathematics, especially since there are a plethora of ways a student can be taught the subject. Students' reported ways of understanding and regurgitating concepts to me (as their tutor) is always beneficial in understanding how to tutor them in future concepts (and I use their way of understanding or reiterating my tutoring to benefit my other students).

My goal is not only to assist my students to understand their material and prosper in class, but to also assist them in using the newly learnt concepts in their day-to-day lives. For example, students often have significant difficulties with decimals and percentages, however, when explained the practical use (i.e., census, taxes, etc.) they tend to want to learn the topic. This beneficial approach often inhibits a students' boredom and lack of passion for math (or any class) and invokes enthusiasm and a self-obtained desire to learn, which is the ultimate reward for me!

Of note, I have tutored numerous students in Algebra I. Of those students, the lowest Final Exam/State Test grade was a 92%! A student that I have recently tutored in Algebra II has significantly improved in her performance (her grades have sky-rocketed from 40% to 50% up to the high 70% to 90% range after only a few weeks of my tutoring her)!

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.

Regents

When I was a student, I had taken numerous Regents exams and scored significantly high on my Mathematics Regents (Integrated Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra II/Trigonometry). I was on an Advanced Honors track since the seventh grade, and took Calculus I and II and Calculus III (half).

I have tutored numerous students in Algebra I. Of those students, the lowest Final Exam/State Test grade received was a 92%! A student that I have tutored in Algebra II has significantly improved in her performance (her grades have sky-rocketed from 40% to 50% up to the high 70% to 90% range after just a few weeks of my tutoring her)!

Study Skills

I have been tutoring students for many years. I have seen that simple organization and methods of studying/retaining knowledge can be very advantageous for students to achieve an optimal score.

My most beneficial method for children is to use colors (highlighters, pens, etc.) when completing assignments to help "see" the different concept(s). This is very helpful in invoking the Occipital Lobe, which is the region of the brain also associated with memory.
