Hi! My name is Deepa :) I am a math(s) and English tutor to students as young as 3.5 years old to students well into their 30s. Being able to teach to such a wide range of ages has really allowed me to find my passion in educating and assisting others in tapping into their greatest potential and becoming the best versions of themselves! I LOVE dogs. I am a proud dog mom to my chorkie and I plan to get another puppy really soon! My favorite color is blue, but specifically navy blue! have recently become an avid reader, from fiction to autobiographies, to self- help books, to murder mysteries: I read them all! My family is everything to me & I am blessed to have such a strong support system! I love meeting new people! I can't wait to hear and share life experiences with you :)
For the last 3.5 years I have taught students of ages from 3.5 years old to 30+ years old in all subjects from math (elementary and middle school maths, pre- algebra, geometry, algebra 1 & 2, pre- calculus, calculus 1 & 2), english, writing, history, and sciences (elementary and middle school science, biology, chemistry, and physics). I have taught students in both group settings with up to 5 students at a time as well as in one- on- one sessions. Nonetheless, I make it a top priority that I give each and all of my students the specialized and individualized time they need I have had students who have experienced learning challenges such as ADHD, autism, and dyslexia as well as those who have had physical challenges such as Cerebral Palsy. Working with these students has taught me tremendous patience as well as how to think outside of the box when it comes to new ways of teaching! I meet my students where they are rather than where they are expected to be. I believe this allows for a learning environment that is stress free for both the student and me. I aim to develop a strong and personal connection with each of my students because when I can understand them on a fundamental level it gives me the opportunity to teach them the way they prefer to learn, creating an ideal learning system for the student. I am usually upfront and honest with my students when I do not know the answer to a question they asked or unsure as to how to approach a specific concept/ subject I usually tell my students: "I am not to sure about this, but I will go home and look more into it and get back to you next class." I believe this open honesty and vulnerability shows the student that we are both learning together and can accomplish our academic goals together as a team.
