About Prashant

I'm Prashant B., a 30 year old male with a passion for mathematics and science. I have been tutoring acting as a teaching assistant on and off for 10 years now and have had great success with my students, ranging from middle school to Graduate Students.

I began tutoring by helping other students in my high school classes. In graduate school, I instructed undergraduate and graduate level courses in Physics Optics and Mathematics. My TAing assignments included lecture plan prep, Designing tests, grading home works etc. . While I havent worked for a tutoring company per say, I have had various opportunities outside of my regular TA assignments to help students with various subjects

I prefer one-on-one tutoring and enjoy engaging my students with fun and challenging problems. My areas of Tutoring expertise include, Physics, AP Physics, Calculus 1, calculus 2, calculus 3, Geometry, SAT/ACT/GRE/GMAT prep, Maths, Algebra 1 Algebra 2, Trigonometry etc. I like applying math and physics to real world situations; as they should, to allow my students to fully understand the relevance and necessity of knowing and using math in their everyday lives.
