About Vikram


Bio

I am an airline pilot and I moved to Richmond recently! I have been tutoring math for seven years now. I have worked with quite a lot of students, ranging from ones who actively participated and wanted to get the A+ in the class, to the ones who wanted to scrape by with a C average. I have tutored people of all ages, ranging from kindergarten to college students.

I took AP Calculus in high school my senior year of 2010-2011, and took the AP test, scoring a 5 out of 5. I also took the SAT II...

I am an airline pilot and I moved to Richmond recently! I have been tutoring math for seven years now. I have worked with quite a lot of students, ranging from ones who actively participated and wanted to get the A+ in the class, to the ones who wanted to scrape by with a C average. I have tutored people of all ages, ranging from kindergarten to college students.

I took AP Calculus in high school my senior year of 2010-2011, and took the AP test, scoring a 5 out of 5. I also took the SAT II for Math I, and Math II, and got a 720 and 680 respectively. I have tutored math at several tutoring services all over the country. I have also tutored privately for ACT math, and caused my student to raise his score by seven points just on the math section alone.

I find that when it comes to teaching math, a lot of the key concepts are ignored in the process of teaching the more advanced concepts. In the four years that I have tutored math, whether it be for compensation, or just to help a friend out around finals, a lot of the problems I have noticed are that, because the student does not understand the whole concept of the problem, they lack the motivation to actually do it. I do not "give" the answer to a problem and move onto another problem; often I will prod and hint at an answer to a problem. Often times, to make sure a certain concept is grasped, I will make up my own problem on the spot and test the student's understanding. If it is a multiple choice problem, I will ask the student which answer they think it is, and then without saying whether they are right or wrong, ask them to explain their reasoning to me.

The reason that there is a gap in my lessons from early 2018 to present time is that I used to live in New York and discontinued lessons at the time as there was not much of a demand that fit with my schedule. In light of the amount of homeschooling that is going on, I thought that I would chip in with low rates to ensure that people still have access to math help that will cement skills they will use for th

Insightful, Caring, and Skilled

I have been studying math with Vikram, focusing on the Math II Subject Test. He is so helpful! He knows how to approach problems in ways that make them easier and his explanations are incredibly clear. He's always happy to answer my questions and makes sure I fully understand what we're reviewing. Schedule-wise, he is very understanding and overall, he's an awesome person to hang out with. I 100% recommend!

Helpful and Knowledgeable

Vikram is very helpful. When there's a hard problem you don't understand he makes sure you get it 100% right the next time. He understands that everyone is different when it comes to learning so he would show you multiple explanations if you're stuck on a problem. Overall I feel that his method and tips will help me improve my SAT score.

Very knowledgeable and very patient tutor

He taught me Algebra 2 logarithms and was able to explain it in detail that made it very easy for me to grasp the concept and overcome my fear of tackling the questions. He even gave me a test to make sure that my concepts were clear. He is highly recommended for anyone needing tutoring in maths especially if looking for a tutor who teaches in a very skillful way!

Irfan, 7 lessons with Vikram

Vikram is a great tutor for Algebra 2

My son is a sophomore enrolled in Algebra 2. Vikram tutors in a way that my son understands. Vikram is very patient and willing to explain and cover a concept more than once. Vikram is consistent, on time and always offers to help my son offline during the week if he's having trouble. Vikram's tutoring has helped my son regain confidence in his math abilities.
