About Rini

The opening I have are on Thursdays at 4pm and 5pm (starting April 1st). I tutor from my home in South Bellevue, 98006.
I am a Math Instructor at Bellevue College with a Master's degree (MS) in Applied Mathematics. I tutor Math from Algebra I to AP Calculus BC and IB math SL and HL; and college level courses up to Math 153.

Getting ready for the SAT's or ACT's in the Spring? I am here to help you.

Most of my students are from Bellevue, Issaquah, Renton and Lake Washington School districts. Students from neighboring private schools include Forest Ridge (Bellevue), Overlake (Redmond) and Lakeside (Seattle). I have students coming to me from the Kent school districts too.

I have had more than a decade of teaching and tutoring experience in high school. I have been tutoring in the Seattle area since 2008. In addition, I coach for SAT and ACT Math, including SAT Math II.

Though results are not guaranteed, I have helped students improve their grades from D's and F's to A's and B's. Most of my students started with a C or below and are now getting A's or high B's.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

ACT is a standardized test where students need extra practice at home. I have helped students increase their Math scores by more than 6-8 points.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is the first step towards higher math. It is great if we can train students from the early stage and I master in tutoring the topics in an easy accessible method.

Algebra 2

This us the pillar of the higher math series. I have successfully tutored students at this level for over a decade.

Calculus

This is my passion. When I teach this, I just don't teach students how to solve problems, but show them how to get to the problem, the physical interpretation and all applications. Thus help them understand and remember better

Chemistry

I only tutor regular or Hons Chemistry for high School students. I don't tutor AP Chemistry. Chemistry is my second favorite subject to tutor. It comes next to Math.

Geometry

To be good engineers, one should be strong in Geometry. Helping students write good proofs make them think better logically and analyze successfully.

Precalculus

Pre-calculus is the last stage of basic algebra, where students learn many different concepts before specializing in Calculus ( AP or IB) Statistics or Linear Algebra to name a few. I feel proud to say that I have helped more than 100 students succeed in thus course over the last 5-8 years alone.

SAT Math

This is a cumulative study of algebra and geometry and I have helped students improve their scores by 100 points or more.

Trigonometry

I tutor trigonometry as a part of Algebra2 and pre-calculus. Students coming to me for tutoring always say the learnt the topic way better than what knowledge they came with.

Very helpful and effective tutor — My son had a very demanding Calculus teacher in high school, with whom he did not work well, so he was doing very poorly in class. His confidence in the subject was very low and his frustration with Calculus started to affect his other classes. We looked all over and we were glad we found Rini as our son's Calculus tutor. Within 2 months of weekly 1 hour lessons, his grades improved from D to A ...
