Saravanan Nanthakumar Tutor Electrical/Electronics Engineering, 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 of the student, into the subject, to be the best. My teaching clearly correlates the theory and the way it is applied. I explain how the concept studied in a particular topic of Science and Engineering, applies equally well, to another topic. 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/RF Circuits, Zero Noise Analog Design and General Theory of Relativity.

I teach interactively. I ask the student to answer questions by intuition derived from the class, so that I have a feed back of the student's understanding of the subject and teach accordingly. I receive direct feed back from students as well. I let the student speak and analyze the knowledge of the student in the concerned subject, to adapt the teaching strategy. I use different types of teaching strategy for students from a variety of background and mindset. I repeat explaining a concept, from all the possible view points, until the student understands the concept that has been taught. I teach with variety of examples and illustrations to make the session mutually beneficial.

Great teacher

He is a good lecturer. He explained clearly to me step by step of calculation in signal processing. He also showed several examples that can be related to signal processing. The price of his class is very affordable. It was a good investment to take his class because it is suitable for future knowledge.

The Best Teacher You Could Ask For

He will try to explain in-depth any question you may have. His classes are extremely affordable and what’s important is that you really want to learn and he will help you to understand the subject. He assisted me in Signal Processing and I managed to answer my homework very well, thanks to him.

Great teacher!

This teacher is really good. I have been learning with him for a few months and I have learned a lot within that time. His explanations of math, and of science is very detailed and easy to understand. Another thing is that he takes interest in my learning and if asked or needed, he extends the class to answer questions. Overall, I would give this outstanding teacher a 5 star review.
