Algebra is very simple and easy. Application of algebra needs a stronger foundation at the beginning level.
I enjoy teaching algebra , teaching is for self satisfaction sake.

About Ashwini

Hindi being a National Language Of India. Most of the parents in the USA are willing to make their children Hindi literate along with communication. I take the privilege to help them to reach their goal. As Hindi is a foreign language, it will certainly help high schoolers to raise their credits.

"If you are looking for an enthusiastic teacher with a love for teaching, you have found the right person. Haitham Kassem goes out of his way to make sure the student comprehends the lesson. He patiently explains again and again until he is certain that the student understands. He engages the student in his lessons, ensuring that the student will stay interested in the lesson. His friendly demeanor makes him easy to talk to and to understand."

"I️ was connected to Rod through a tutoring agency. I️ contacted the agency because I️ recently graduated college and wanted to get into grad school but had not taken a math class since the 10th grade. The school I️ was applying to needed a minimum math score for the GRE, which I️ knew would be a enormous stretch for me. Additionally, I️ always had trouble with math and knew I️ would need a tutor to re-teach me everything I️ needed to know to get the score I️ wanted. Initially, the agency connected me to 3 different tutors who were all absolutely terrible! Sometimes they didn’t even know how to answer sample questions in the workbooks! Finally, I was connected to Rod. After our first meeting I️ knew he would be the one who would help me improve. After a month of intense work with him my GRE math scores actually improved a full 12 points! Beyond that, he literally taught me math in a way in which I️ actually understood it. Before I️ just thought I couldn’t learn, but now I’m confident that I️ actually retained everything and it even made sense! I’m so grateful to have met Rod because before him I️ truly felt hopeless. I️ would definitely recommend Rod to anyone who is looking to drastically improve their math skills. If you’re like me and hate math, can’t grasp it, and even feel like you just can’t learn it, then definitely contact Rod now! You won’t be sorry!"

"I have worked with Ms.Ali plenty of times. The passion she puts into her job to make sure that I understand every material is amazing. There were plenty of times she spent her lunch periods with me to give extra one on one time when need after graduating from being her student, she has always kept in touch with me. In college, I can email her any material that I do not understand, and she finds the most amazing way to show me over video chat. She had gave me better clarification sometimes then my own professors/teachers."

Matt was very understanding of my busy work schedule and worked our appointments around this. During our tutoring sessions, Matt did a great job of explaining and helping me solve GMAT exam practice problems. He is very friendly and laid back, while also being an utmost professional. I highly recommend him for any of your graduate school level exam preparations."
