High School Mathematics and University Mathematics
I am a recent graduate of University of Cambridge where I completed my master’s degree in mathematics. I won the Commonwealth scholarship to attend Cambridge and achieved distinction in tripose exam. Before that, I did my undergraduate studies at Brown University in the United states. I graduated summa cum laude from Brown. This is awarded to students graduating in the top 1% of their class. I was inducted to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society in my third year at university (junior year). The inductees are recruited from students who place in the top 1% of their junior year class.
Experience: 5 years
I offer online math classes for grade 9 through 12 at the school level. I also offer math lessons for students studying calculus,differential equations, discrete math, linear algebra, abstract algebra and real analysis at university.
I help students gain a strong conceptual understanding of the subject. My goal is to get students to a point where they are able to deal with any problem in the subject on their own.
I believe in tailoring learning and teaching strategies according to the individual students. So, I spend considerable time understanding the student's thought process and expectations. Based on this understanding, I chalk out a plan that helps students find their own way in the subject. I help students develop their own ‘voice’ in the subject. This means that students develop a personal connection with subject and learn to formulate arguments using their own unique personal perspective. I encourage students to articulate ideas in a manner that seems natural to them. The learning is driven by the student rather than imposed by an external agency.
My approach should help students maximize their potential and develop confidence in dealing with new and unfamiliar problems
