Saravanan Nanthakumar Tutor, Electrical Engineering and Physics

I teach with strong emphasis on fundamentals. The student learns from intuition, then proceeds to the phase of developing Theory and Equations, which makes the insight into a subject, a lot better. My teaching very clearly correlates the theory and the way it is applied. I also very clearly explain, how the concept studied in a particular subject applies to the concept studied in another subject. The students feel the happiness themselves, in acquiring knowledge by intuition, rather than memorizing theory and equations.

I am an independent researcher in Electrical Engineering and Physics. My area of interest in research spans Analog/Mixed-Signal Design, RF Design, Zero Noise Analog Design and General Theory of Relativity.

I teach interactively. I ask the student to answer questions by his intuition, so that I have a feed back of the student's intuition of the subject and teach accordingly. I receive direct feed back from students as well. I allow the student to open his mind on the subject and analyse the knowledge of the student in the concerned subject. From this I adopt the teaching strategy. I adopt different types of teaching strategy for students from a variety of background and mindset. I repeat explaining a concept, until the student gets it right. I teach with variety of examples and illustrations to make the session mutually beneficial.

Finally an teacher that teaches the fundamentals instead of tricks

Saravanan is teaching me for 3 months and he is an honest and passionate teacher. His interactive teaching style is very unique as that is exactly what makes the lessons very great and intuitive. Rather than learning tricks he will encourage you to think intuitively which was very new to me. But his way of teaching will make you confident as it will teach you the fundamental basics which you need to understand the whole concept. In the long run it will make you more relaxed about topics and subjects.

Instead of learning 5 different subjects Saravanan will teach you 2 basic fundamentals which will cover them all. This is not only efficient it will make you a better engineer.

Rather then learning tricks Saravanan encourage you to think for yourself. In the end you have to make the exams and he is right about that.

Saravanan is someone who needs reference to understand what kind of basics you need. Saravanan is able to interrelate basics very quickly. A lot of students wants to have the quick fix but Saravanan rather wants to give you the " REAL STUFF" this is what makes you a real engineer rather then a one pony trick person.

Knowing Saravanan as a really kind and decent teacher who is not only always punctual but always honest and nice and patient during lessons.

Saravanan is always honest if he has an opinion because he wants to let you understand things from the basics. This might be new for rote learning students as they will not always understand that things sometimes are simpler then the formulas they have learned. Don't get discouraged by that because Saravanan will explain it as much as needed.

That is the difference between him and other teachers is that he first wants that you master one thing at a time rather then doing 10 different things which you do not fully understand.

Thank you so much Saravanan for al your help.

Saravanan is one of the theater's greats.

He is a great tutor. I just finished up my electrical engineering classes and he helped me grasp many of the concepts which were giving me the most trouble. He has an excellent method of teaching and is very friendly. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is struggling with concepts. I really appreciated his time and will definitely be using him again! Best $ I ever spent on my education!
