I am an accomplished dynamic, resourceful Information Technology Professional with a genuine interest in tutoring. I have combined strong passion for tutoring mathematics and computer science. I am a self-driven leader with excellent communication and interpersonal skills who effectively collaborates with all levels of students. My tutoring experience starts from way back in college days where I was actively involved in a tutoring program and tutored students in Mathematics (Algebra, Trigonometry, Statistics, Applied Mathematics etc.) and Computer Science (Java/PHP/Perl/JEE/C/C++/HTML/CSS/Android etc.). My daughter is currently in International Baccalaureate (IB) program and I have been her primary tutor since Middle school. Currently, I am also a tutor in the International Tutoring Club Franchise.
I attribute my tutoring success through producing motivated students.
