Bio

If you were to ask me "What is one thing that is important to you?", my answer would be learning. I am passionate about learning and to me it is imperative; the day I stop learning is the day I would consider myself as non existent. That is the primary reason I chose to teach students, regardless of their age, as the time I spend with them is not only a moment for them to learn, but also an opportunity for me to learn as well, learn how to think like others.

If you were to ask me "What is one thing that is important to you?", my answer would be learning. I am passionate about learning and to me it is imperative; the day I stop learning is the day I would consider myself as non existent. That is the primary reason I chose to teach students, regardless of their age, as the time I spend with them is not only a moment for them to learn, but also an opportunity for me to learn as well, learn how to think like others.

For the past eight years, I have been fortunate in teaching, guiding and mentoring students from school (K-12) as well colleges, covering a wide range subjects in math, science and engineering. I have taught grade level math for elementary, middle and high schools such as algebra, geometry, precalculus, calculus and statistics. My teaching methods are based on reinforcing fundamental concepts which help in raising their self confidence and self esteem. I let them make their mistakes and take the opportunities as moments of learning and make them understand their mistakes and point out ways to avoid them. I encourage them to strengthen their perception and cognizance skills through multilevel reinforcement such as visualizing, writing, speaking and listening and use traditional board and multimedia tools.

I work closely with students and explain using different approaches if I feel that they are not digesting the material. I try to understand the root cause of the problem and try to fix it so that the students gain confidence in what they are doing. I extend the boundaries of learning by giving real life examples and analogies from different areas so that the students have a good understanding that gets embedded.

I have worked with students and encourage them to think creatively. I believe that each student is inherently talented and I work towards making them realize that they can succeed using focused learning of concepts. Many of my students have excelled and won competitions in science and math all the way from district to national levels. The work sessions with students is on an individual basis or in a small group as well as I firmly believe that students in group benefit from their peers. I make them verbalize their solution as this reinforces their knowledge and also gives self confidence in presenting their solution.

I have taught Engineering courses including Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics, Programming and Math Modelling. I look forward to sharing my experience and knowledge with the student community.

Subjects

Computer

C,

C

I have taught 'C' at the University of Arlington as part of the numerical analysis course for the undergraduates. I have also implemented many numerical techniques as part of my thesis in calculating solutions of complex non-linear differential equations. Further, I have experience in coding windows programs using their native interface in C as well.
Computer Programming,

Computer Programming

I have worked as developer and software design engineer in start up companies with experience in Java/J2EE technologies. I have been a consultant in many companies managing product development, project management and testing. I have taught courses in C/C++ and Java at Universities.
Java,

Java

I have developed products for start-up companies using Java/J2EE technologies with data modeling using Oracle, MySQL and other database programs, I have a Ph.D. in engineering and am very strong in math and math modeling.
MATLAB,

MATLAB

MATLAB is a programming language that is used in modelling systems. I have done a few projects with high school students that needed MATLAB to solve system of differential equations to predict the "Efficacy of medication in controlling HIV infection"; There was another project that involved predicting forest fire spread using cellular automata and random walk technique (Monte Carlo method) for which I used MATLAB in calculating fire spreading rate and control of it using chemicals. I have also used OCTAVE, an open source version with MATLAB functionality and SCILAB, another tool similar to MATLAB and OCTAVE.
Microsoft Access,

Microsoft Access

As part of the MIS course that I am teaching currently, I have included Access programming to help students understand the db basics and how Access can be used effectively create tables, query tables to extract data, report generation and data modelling. I have also developed some solutions as a consultant using Access and connect it to Microsoft Excel as a reporting tool so that Pivot Table features of Excel can be used to analyze the data.
Python,

Python

As a mentor to several students, I have helped them create applications in Python, Java and Matlab. These applications involved user interface, sophisticated mathematical models and graphing. The problems involved solving disease spread, prediction of pathways of breast and pancreatic cancer, and HIV infection response to medication.

Patient and available at uncomfortable hours

Ram helped me understand and code my Chemical Engineering assignment. He was also available at late hours when most other great tutors aren't. Highly recommend this tutor for this subject!

Vladislav, 1 lesson with Ram

HE IS KNOWLEDGEABLE ON SCILAB AND MATHEMATICAL CONCEPTS

He is a great teacher and he has patience to explain the concept in great details. After completing the practice assignment with him. I felt more confident on the subject.

JOVAN, 5 lessons with Ram

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Ram has taught me both Python and Java. I learn the concepts quite easily from him. He teaches in a manner that is clear and simple to understand. The online format that he teaches me in is quite convenient and I can see everything he is explaining on the computer. I would highly recommend Ram as a tutor because he is well educated and knows what he is teaching.

EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS!!!

Ram went above and beyond and exceeded my expectations for a tutor. I felt compeletely lost but he made me feel at ease and took time to answer my questions extremely thoroughly. At the end of the session, I surprisingly had a better grasp of my homework assignment and with greater confidence too. Thank you so much Ram for all you did for me today! I SO APPRECIATE IT!!!

Differential equations tutoring

Ram is very knowledgeable and has helped me understand the differential equations material much better! He is flexible to meet based on my schedule and very kind. Fortunate to have found him as a tutor.

Connie, 3 lessons with Ram

Brilliant, outstanding tutor!

Dr. Ram is an awesome tutor! He is down to earth and humble. He definitely goes above and beyond explaining something I could not understand without making me feel inferior. He is super accessible and has made time for me even on short notice. However, when he is not available, he let me know when he can and gets back to me very promptly. He genuinely cares about what I am struggling in and has helped me better understand Physics/Statics at a different perspective.

Jessica, 2 lessons with Ram

A teacher I wish I had

Ram was patient and challenged me to figure out a complex MATLAB homework question on my own. I am confident that with his help, I will be able to not only understand the concepts of my class but also be able to be a top performer in my class. I definitely recommend Ram as a tutor, and will be recommending him to my fellow classmates.

Great teacher

Ram helped me finish a python programming assignment online and helped me to better understand Python language throughout the process

Emma, 3 lessons with Ram

Excellent!

Ram is a good man, very patient and understanding. He has no issues clearly explaining the subject matter, for me it was beginner physics. He was on time for the meeting and very fair with his time. I'd highly recommend him to anyone and will use him for my children should they need a tutor.
