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.

"I am extremely pleased with how hard he works to strengthen the areas that are lacking.
He puts a lot of CARE, time and energy behind the scenes to make the session more efficient and productive .He really listens to you and works with you to make the most of the time spent working together.That means the world to a struggling learner that wants to move past this obstacle and continue on the path ahead .
He is able to see the big picture and to correctly discern what you really need to achieve academic success .I am so glad I found him on TL and will definitely choose him again for other subjects that he teaches should the need arise
Book him now if you want tailored instruction from someone who really knows his stuff !!!🤗"

"I can't say enough about Aalok. His wealth of tutoring experience is certainly a major advantage, however his dedication and work ethic was what impressed us the most. What started out as just a few tutoring sessions for physics evolved into a wonderful relationship, guiding my son through his SATs and ACTs. Unlike many tutors' rigid availability schedules, Aalok went out of his way to work with my son's demanding high school schedule. He established a sincere rapport with my son and continues to touch base with him even now that he's at college. I am happy to recommend Aalok -- he is an exceptional young man and an excellent tutor."

He was always available to answer phone calls with questions. He's very accommodating and wants to make things work. I feel very prepared for my GRE exam now. Before my sessions I was completely lost and didn't know where to begin. He is really knowledgable in everything that he teaches. I highly recommend him."
