About Rini

I am a very patient, knowledgeable tutor. I can get down to the level of the student and analyze why the student is not getting a particular concept. I cater my tutoring lessons according to the need of the student. I do not follow the same cookie cutter rule for all students, every student is different.
I tutor from my home in WA 98006. I can occasionally help students with immediate need.
At this point I have openings for the summer from July 5th to August 9th on Mondays and Wednesdays between 3 to 6 pm. Tuesdays at between 3pm and 5pm and Fridays 9am to 11am.

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 AB and IB math SL and HL; Business Precalculus and Calculus and college level courses up to Math 153. I also tutor Math in Society, (referred to as Math 107)

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

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.

Excellent and knowledgeable tutor!

Rini has been a wonderful source of help for my son with Pre-Calculus and Calculus. He started gaining much more confidence in Math after going to her. She is patient, clear and thorough, and was even able to identify gaps in his learning and help him with that. She is good about giving extra practice and review materials from a variety of sources so that he is well prepared before a test or an ex
