About me

About Me:

I am a PhD student in the Department of Electrical/ Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London (one of the top 10 universities in the world). In Sept. 2015, I was awarded a Distinction for my master's degree in the same department. I am quite passionate about Maths and started teaching this subject to my younger brother and my cousins at a small age of 15.  

My Approach: 

Math provides a tool to model and simplify the complicated concepts of the world but its fundamental understanding is difficult to a lot of students. Since this subject relates to problem solving skills, my approach of teaching this subject is quite simple. I teach theory by focussing on solving problems i.e. using practical approach for establishing the understanding of the concepts.

Experience and Feedback:

I have been teaching this subject from an age of 15 and continued to do so during my undergraduate, master's and now the PhD degree. My patience, politeness, confidence and focus on the basic skills have always allowed me to develop an interactive relationship with my students. They have always provided me an excellent feedback for my teaching methods. 

Do I need to be scared if I lack the understanding of the basic concepts?

No, not at all. The regular fear which I have seen in the eyes of a student is when they lack the understanding of the basic skills/ topics which make it quite tough for them to grasp the new advanced concepts. My initial sessions always focus on the preliminary understanding of a topic to make a student more comfortable and confident with the upcoming sessions.

Resources:

Teaching the concepts alone doesn't help much. From my experience, I have learnt that Maths is all about practicising. Thus, I try to make some worksheets for my students which cover questions from a basic level to a moderate level and then to an advanced level. This route guarantees the understanding of the topic immensely.

Contact:

I am always accessible via email. My average replying time is less than half an hour so please contact me if you are interested in tutoring with me. I will try to get in touch as soon as possible.

Helped me with Binomial Expansion in very easy and understandable way, would most definitely recommend if you're having issues with a whole area of mathematics.

Questions Piyush has answered

Find the zeroes of the quadratic polynomial x^2 + 8x + 15.

x2+8x+15 = (x+3)(x+5)

So, the value of x2+8x+15 is zero when x2+8x+15 = 0 i.e. x = -3 or x = -5.

x2+8x+15 = (x+3)(x+5)

So, the value of x2+8x+15 is zero when x2+8x+15 = 0 i.e. x = -3 or x = -5.

Form the differential equation representing the family of curves x = my , where, m is arbitrary constant.

Differentiating the above equation with respet to y:

dx/dy = m;

Substituting the value of m in the given form:

x = (dx/dy) y i.e. the solution is

(dx/dy) y - x = 0

Differentiating the above equation with respet to y:

dx/dy = m;

Substituting the value of m in the given form:

x = (dx/dy) y i.e. the solution is

(dx/dy) y - x = 0

How much work is done in moving a charge of 2 C across two points having a potential difference 12 V?

The amount of charge Q, that flows between two points at potential difference V (= 12 V) is 2 C. Thus, the amount of work W, done in moving the charge is

W = QV = 2 * 12 = 24 J
