Bio

In the age where women in India were expected to get married and stay at home, I dared to explore the nascent computer science fields. I was recruited on campus as one of the first few women employees in Tata Consultancy Services.

Life took a different route and I slowly moved back to family businesses that I now help my husband and father run. I’ve always been passionate about Mathematics and Logical Thinking. Through the last 30 years, I have devoted a lot of my time to teaching and scribing for the lesser privileged. I hope to ignite the love for Math in my students.

Tutoring style

Through constant mentoring, I help my students break down complex math questions into smaller manageable portions. Problem-solving comes easy when the question is logically understood.

In order to keep the two-way communication going, I love engaging my students with stimulating questions that bring out the fun in Math. I like to understand my student's strengths and build on them, giving them confidence and motivation.

Math can be approached in a very practical manner and I inculcate this concept in my students.
