I am an engineer by background. I hold an MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rutgers University, NJ. I enjoy working with students (elementary, middle, and high school) and have helped a number of students become proficient and independent in many different subjects. The best part about tutoring for me is working with students one-on-one and knowing that I played a part in their academic success. I stress fundamentals and go the extra length to make sure that students really underst... [more]
