I graduated with a degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering with a minor in Mathematics. I am a structural engineer professionally but tutoring has always (literally, always) been my passion. I grew up in the beautiful state of Goa, India, and I moved to the United States to attend college at Brigham Young University about five years ago. I am a young wife, and my husband is a structural engineer as well!
I started tutoring students my own age when I was in high school. My friends' parents would "hire" me to help their children, and so I started teaching material I had just learned myself. It was so much fun. After I got to college, I started working at the Mathematics Lab on campus where I tutored students in college level math ranging from College Algebra through Differential Equations. This was probably my favorite job ever. I also taught math to a sweet girl in 7th grade who was home-schooled. I helped her dramatically improve her math skills and she was able to get into an excellent, and very competitive, private high school after taking a math entrance test. And throughout all of this, I have absolutely loved it! I am a CRLA Certified Tutor, having completed all 3 levels of training.
There is nothing better than seeing the look on a student's face when he or she "gets it." I love that. I have found great joy in teaching, and for the time that I am with a student, nothing is more important than making sure you are comfortable and you understand the material.
I have a lot of experience with mathematics, and frankly, I think I have been blessed so that it usually comes naturally to me. I have also been pretty good at English writing as well as speaking having participated in various debate and elocution competitions in the past. I am also a native English and Hindi speaker, so I have a lot of experience with different cultures/languages, and I am happy to help students with language difficulties.
Feel free to contact me and I would love to help you/your child improve their learning skills! Though I am an engineer professionally, I am doing tutoring because I enjoy it so much, so I would love to help you out in any way I can!
