Bio

My first tutoring experience was during my Master’s, when some of my teachers would ask me to teach mathematics to the undergraduate students. They loved my teaching style, which made me really happy and inspired me to take up private tutoring. Until the start of the pandemic, I worked as a private tutor of mathematics for some high school students in Bangalore, India. I started my PhD in 2019, and soon after the pandemic hit, I switched to online tutoring. This gave me a chance to work with students from both India and abroad. Over the last few years, I have worked with over 100 different students. Tutoring students from different countries has helped me understand various teaching and learning styles, and I can confidently adapt my teaching style as the need arises. Pursuing a PhD in the same subject that I tutor has definitely improved my understanding of the subject and helped me approach problems from different perspectives.

Tutoring style

Being a PhD student gives me a chance to engage with college and graduate students in the university. It helps me to understand what they expect from their teachers, and how we can improve our teaching styles. My teaching style involves breaking up a complex problem into smaller, simpler parts which are easy to understand. I try to connect a topic with something the student already knows. However, if the topic is completely new to the student, I start by introducing a couple of real-life examples and then applying them to the problem at hand. I try to ensure that students get a deeper understanding of the topic, instead of simply applying mathematical formulas. My tutoring involves a lot of discussions and mutual collaboration. My main objective is to make sure that each student leaves the tutoring session feeling more confident than before. I am really excited to work with you!
