About

I am an experienced Mathematics teacher with over 12 years of teaching in both secondary schools and as a Private teacher. I am a post graduate in Mathematics; qualification is B.Sc. (Computer Science), B.Ed., M.Sc. (Maths). I have experience in private teaching in Melbourne, London and India (Secondary level maths) with specialization in VCE Maths Method, Specialist Maths and Further Maths. Currently I am teaching Maths to students from leading Private, Public and Selective schools in Melbourne.

I also specialize in crash course in preparation of VCE Maths Method, Further Maths & Specialist Maths.

Rate/Hr:
Individual - up to year10 is $40 and $45 for Year 11 & 12.
Group of 2 - up to year10 is $25 and $30 for Year 11 & 12.
Group of 3 - up to year10 is $20 and $25 for Year 11 & 12.

Key aspect of my teaching experience is that I have seen/taught so many students who hated maths before but now maths is their favorite subject and they are doing really well after I helped them in maths. My aim while teaching is to make students understand how a problem works, rather than simply trying to find a correct answer. With this approach, I try to focus on overall understanding of the problem, break down the problem into individual parts, and encourage students to think through and then solve the problem. My strength is Determination, Positive attitude, punctuality, sincerity, and commitment towards hard work, self-confidence, quick adaptability to new environment and learning from every moment of life.

I hope I can help you reach success. Looking forward to hear from you.

Reviews

Pooja is a great support who has helped me out so much in 1/2 methods this year. I personally struggle in maths and from the get go, she has always been supportive and encouraging in the subject, which has undoubtedly helped me improve. Every week, Pooja goes above and beyond, always ensuring that I am absorbing concepts, by providing in depth examples and extra materials to supplement my schoolwork. Best of the best. Thank you Pooja!

Pooja has been tutoring me in Specialist and Maths Method and I must say that she is really knowledgeable in maths. She simplifies the complex problems and finds multiple ways to explain it until you understand it. She motivates you to logically solve the problem and helps if you are stuck. During Covid time, we did our classes using Zoom and it was as effective as in-person teaching. It's been a great experience in learning with her and I highly recommend her for VCE

Pooja tutored me for 3/4 Methods this year and she was absolutely amazing! As someone who didn't like maths and wasn't the best at it before, I can confidently say that Pooja's patience and explanations genuinely helped me understand concepts and apply them in a range of questions. These skills truly helped me when approaching questions in all my SACs and exams. Pooja encourages you to work through problems step by step, in a simple and logical manner and our classes are very collaborative. She always pushes me to try my best and replies very promptly whenever I send her any doubts or questions I don't understand. Pooja is not only an incredible tutor but also extremely knowledgeable with maths - she also teaches Further and Specialist Maths and she has an excellent understanding and ability to teach all these subjects. She has been so supportive throughout the craziness of 2020 and I don't know what I would have done without her as my Methods tutor! She is also so kind and encouraging and we always have a laugh in our classes. I would very highly recommend Pooja to anyone looking for maths tuition!
