I am currently a graduate student at Columbia University and my technical specialization is in Mechanical Engineering: Advanced Robotics and Design for Manufacturing. I did my undergrad, in Mechanical Engineering, at RPI (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) in upstate new york. Prior to my undergrad I was in the IB (International Baccalaureate) Program and the IGCSE. While in undergrad I taught over 200+ college and high school students in mathematics and physics and also held leadership positions as a Resident Director and the Vice President of my fraternal organization. Additionally, I am a board member in a start up organization in India to teach primary and middle school students, free of cost.
In regards to my teaching style, I prefer to use analogies and stories to help the student understand a particular concept. My goal is to be able to teach students the applications of the things they are learning as opposed to the simple theory. If a student knew that calculus was involved in how the GPS in their car works, its more likely the concept will stick with them. I try to create games and challenges to engage students and so far it has worked incredibly. I am also trained to work with students that are not very forthcoming (both academic and social). I love taking up challenges and helping students achieve their goals because I feel personally invested in their progress.
