I am currently an engineer working for the Department of Transportation. I graduated with a MS in Civil Engineering degree from the University of Boulder- Colorado. My undergraduate degree is from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Geological Engineering. I have been tutoring since high school and enjoy helping others learn. Studying engineering ensures that I have to know my math skills, so I am very comfortable with math and really enjoy it. I struggled with math in high school which makes me a good teacher because I understand where other students struggle.
I was in the National Honors Society in high school which is where I gained experience tutoring. I think the best approach to math is to break it down and figure out what is being understood and what is not. That is why tutoring is so important. Each student needs help figuring out what they know, what they don't know, and how to understand what they do not know. I struggled with math and now I love it! I know how to help people who are struggling. Whether you need a full curriculum or help with a few topics, I am happy to accept you as a student.
I want to make sure that students are comfortable working in a quiet environment; I am willing to meet up in public locations- libraries or coffee shops, or any other location that is comfortable for the student.
I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. You can text or call me in advance to cancel. Please contact me if you are looking for a tutor in math.
I hope to meet with you soon!
Very happy with how it went
My 16 y.o. daughter was very happy with the algebra help she received from Nishanthi. She tends to get frustrated with math in general and it's been a challenge to find a way to help her gain confidence with it, but after working with Nishanthi, she seemed calm and relaxed and eager to work with her again. 😊Maia, 8 lessons with K Nishanthi
I have a much better understanding of the material we covered; she explained everything to me in ways that helped me understand. Definitely the best tutor for geotechnical engineering!Juliana, 1 lesson with K Nishanthi
Nishanthi is flexible with my daughter's schedule. She also is willing to dig in to and follow up on questions or problems they weren't able to resolve during the session.Stephanie, 5 lessons with K Nishanthi
Very helpful Pre-Calculus tutor
Nishanthi connected very well with my high school-age daughter, who was nervous about working with a tutor. In her first session, Nishanthi found my daughter had a good understanding of alegbra concepts but had some gaps in underlying skills, such as fractions, that needed strengthening. We will defintely seek support from Nishanthi again.Stephanie, 5 lessons with K Nishanthi
Knowledgeable and Patient Precalculus Tutor
My daughter needed to have some skills taught, which were missed in class. Nishanthi did a great job of explaining items in a way that could be understood. She asked for some of the concepts and questions ahead of the tutoring to better understand how to personalize instruction to my daughter’s needs. It helped Nishanthi had my daughter explain the problems to her to check for the understanding of each concept. We were delighted with the tutor session and will use Nishanthi again in the future.Brent, 2 lessons with K Nishanthi
Very Knowledgeable and Great Teacher
So Great! Not only was she very knowledgeable in a very specific area in an upper level class she was a good teacher. I have been struggling with a shallow foundations problem in geotechnical engineering and she cleared every thing right up.Charles, 1 lesson with K Nishanthi
I was taught in a elementary way which was easy for me to understand given my professor has done a horrendous job thus for. K Nishanthi was able to piece concepts together nicely which allowed me to complete my portion for a lab. She is very responsive when you need her.Christopher, 1 lesson with K Nishanthi
I got stuck in analyzing a consolidation test, which is so confusing and tricky for my geotechnical engineering course. Nishanthi patiently helped me understand the process and do the calculations.Ehsan , 1 lesson with K Nishanthi
Knowledgeable and responsible tutor
I had her to help me with a geotechnical engineering assignment. She knows the stuff well, and she explained it many times until I understand. She also followed up with me after the lesson to make sure I'm don't have other questions. She is serious !!!Jeff, 5 lessons with K Nishanthi
Great math tutor!
Nishanthi was a great match for my 10th grade daughter struggling in Honors Algebra 2. I can tell my daughter will benefit greatly from this one on one time time. Nishanthi is familiar with the most current methods, and is very encouraging. Her evening and weekend availability works well for us.Mary, 1 lesson with K Nishanthi
