About Vaishnavi

I bring accountability, passion and expertise to teaching. After my Ph.D. in Environmental Chemistry, I worked for 3 years as an Environmental Process Engineer and for a total of 5 years as a tutor teaching Math and Chemistry to all levels of students, but primarily high schoolers. I teach AP and regular courses. I have extensive experience in fundamental and applied chemistry.

I will give you monthly (or more frequent if requested) reports on your student and recommend areas of strength, improvement and practice. I also consider myself "on-call" in that my students are able to send me questions anytime (especially during exam time), and I will always answer within 12 hours (but more likely within 2-3 hours) free of charge.

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.

Chemistry

I have a dual Masters and a Masters and a Ph.D. in Chemistry. Students that I have taught have ranged from middle school to college. I teach all areas of Chemistry, but AP chemistry is my area of expertise.

Knowledgeable, professional, and warm — Vaishnavi helped me so much with my IB Chemistry class and exam. I felt like I learned so much in every tutoring session, and topics that had seemed impossibly hard before seemed easy once we had covered them. Before she started tutoring me, I was expecting to get a 2 or 3 on my IB exam, but after only 4 months of tutoring, I'm expecting a 5 on the exam (I haven't gotten my scores back yet), and I ...
