RATED 5.0 Vaishnavi is the best – and my favorite – tutor out of all the ones I’ve had! She made me really like subjects that I used to find boring before – such as chemistry. I understand concepts ten times better when I learn with Vaishnavi than when I learn them at school. ... I highly recommend Vaishnavi for those of you out there in need of an experienced, motivated, and professional tutor!Original recommendation
Vaishnavi tutored our son who took the AP Chemistry course and she coached him for the exam. She is an extremely thorough and patient tutor and is very flexible. She has the knack of pinpointing the students’ weak areas and helps them navigate through the coursework. She was very punctual for all the sessions and wasted no time getting to work as soon as the session started.Original recommendation
She is obviously an expert in her area and was able to handle all the doubts and questions that my son had and went over all his work with him. She showed him short- cuts and quick ways to tackle problems in the practice exams.
The result of all this excellent tutoring was that our son got a perfect 5 in the AP exam. He took the SAT Subject test in Chemistry right after that and scored a perfect 800!
Thanks a lot Vaishnavi! We wish we could find a tutor like you for other subjects too.
My daughter, Emily, first worked with Vaish in 8th grade. She was a huge help to Emily and is a pleasure to work with. Vaish is always on time and makes the most of the allotted tutoring time. Emily really enjoyed working with Vaish and learned so much from her. When Emily needed math and chemistry assistance last year in 10th grade, we immediately turned to Vaish. With her help, Emily obtained strong grades in two very challenging classes with even more challenging teachers. We strongly recommend Vaish and will turn to her for any tutoring needs in the future.Original recommendation
It is not easy at all to find a tutor like Vaishnavi. We are very glad we found her. She has been tutoring our daughters for almost a year now. Excellent tutor. Very dedicated, Focused, Patient, and most importantly she teaches from her Heart. Our daughters and us are very satisfied with her teaching. Wish her All the Best with her Tutoring.Original recommendation
Vaishnavi helped me so much with my IB Chemistry class and exam. I felt like I learned so much in every tutoring session, and topics that had seemed impossibly hard before seemed easy once we had covered them. Before she started tutoring me, I was expecting to get a 2 or 3 on my IB exam, but after only 4 months of tutoring, I’m expecting a 5 on the exam (I haven’t gotten my scores back yet), and I think if she had been tutoring me for a longer time I would have gotten a 6 or 7. It was also easy to contact her if I had any homework questions. I definitely recommend her!Original recommendation
