EducationI have Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and minor in mathematics at University of Houston.
These are some of the students parents feedback I have erned in past
"Rapid turn-around -- a truly great tutor!"
- Leslie from Bellaire, TX
My daughter is a terrific student, but she was having trouble with the math in her chemistry class. Her chemistry grades were trending downward, so we contacted Palak, who helped her turn the whole situation around. Palak was extremely knowledgeable and able make chemistry concepts accessible. She and my daughter were a good match. They met many times and worked sometimes for three straight hours. I am so grateful to Palak for her expertise, scheduling flexibility, and willingness to put in as much time as it takes to get my daughter's chem grades back into the 90's. What a great experience! This tutor has my highest recommendation.
Palak replied on 6/6/2013:
Thank you for an excellent feedback. I am glad I was able to help your daughter. If you need anything in future feel free to get in touch with me.
"Very patient and detailed!"
- Erin from Houston, TX
Palak has been tutoring me for my graduate school calculus class the past couple of weeks and has helped tremendously. This is a subject that I had no prior knowledge in. Palak takes the time to go step by step and make sure that you are not making any mistakes. If you don't understand something, she will go over it with you in a different format. I'm sure that all of the help is going to pay off in the long run!
"Invaluable last minute assistance!"
- Harold from Houston, TX
My daughter's grade in chemistry immediately improved after one session with Palak. This tutor was available to meet with my daughter within a few days and her assistance was invaluable!
"Very easy going method of teaching."
- Laura from Sugar Land, TX
Palak was able to convey some Calculus theories to my daughter by using simplistic everyday examples to illustrate. That helped her to grasp the basic concepts as she was getting flustered and lost in the complication of the mathematics lingo. I'm confident if we continue our sessions with Palak my daughter can gain the knowledge and confidence she needs to successfully complete this course this year.
"Very good tutor"
- Chandra from Houston, TX
My son was very happy with what she taught.
- Paula from Fresno, TX
Palak was very professional and quick to respond to emails and text messages. Our son is in the 11th grade and his weakness is math. He was so excited that Palak was able to explain his Algebra II and give him skills and techniques that he was able to use right away to make a difference. His teacher was surprised (because he could not get through to him) but Palak did. We liked her personality and are comfortable with her. She was very patient and knowledgeable of what areas he needed assistance in. My husband and I commend her for her expertise with tutoring him and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great tutor. We had never heard of WyzAnt and were afraid to try it, but we are so glad we did.
"Chemistry easy as ABC & 123"
- Fabian from Friendswood, TX
Palak is a wonderful tutor. She explained chemistry in a way that made it so easy for me to understand. She was very patient and explained everything in a way that I clearly understood.
"Excellent Tutor and Mentor"
- Anna from Houston, TX
Palak has done a wonderful job helping my daughter with high school Algebra. From the first lesson I could see that my daughter had a better understanding and a renewed sense of confidence in her abilities. More importantly, my daughter really looks up to Palak and he has been a mentor to her. I don't think that tutoring is just a "job" for Palak. I believe and see that it comes from her heart. I highly recommend her!
ExperienceMy teaching motto:
There is no stupid question. You can achieve anything you set your mind to.
My first tutoring job was offered by my counselor when I graduated from high school. I worked as a tutor at a community college, where I was tutoring my fellow classmates and students with chemistry (General Chemistry I & II, Analytical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry I & II and Inorganic chemistry I & II) as well as mathematics (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus I and II). I tutor students of many ages, from the elementary level studying mathematics and science,to the college level of mathematics and science majors. My favorite subjects are mathematics and chemistry, at any level.
My specialty is one-on-one subject tutoring and group tutoring. My tutoring style has been described as patient, passionate, dedicated, and friendly. My students think of me as a friendly person, as I maintain that relationship so that it is easiest for them to ask me any questions without any hesitation as well as understand the material in a much more comfortable environment. I believe that nothing is hard to learn in education if it's done step by step and taught in a manner for the students to comprehend and apply to their daily lives.
HobbiesTutoring is one of the avenues that satisfies my desire to increase interest in the subjects I teach, and to allow students to get more out of their education. I spend most of my free time with friends and family and sometimes I take my niece and her friends for picnic.
I love playing chess.
