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. I hold a Master's Degree in VLSI Design. 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/her 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/her mind on the subject and analyze 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.

Great Teacher

Saravanan sir has been of great help for the past few months. He has significantly helped me with my Engineering courses. He truly cares about his students; he is very patient and understanding when teaching and ensures that the student completely understands the topic before moving forward. His teaching style is very interactive which also enables the student to better comprehend the topics, and it also helps the student connect various concepts quickly. Most importantly, he helps the student relate class concepts to real-world applications. His focus on fundamentals really helps understand subsequent subjects, and he is very open to communication and feedback. He is flexible and always willing to work with his students.

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!
