Information About Sumon
This is how 2 referees rated Sumon:
COVID -19 Update: Currently, due to the ongoing situation , my delivery platform is 100% Online. All my existing students has seamlessly shifted to the online platform and is currently engaged in uninterrupted learning.
Fall 2020 is going to be unlike any other term with subjects being taught in the "Quadmester" system. This will likely put more pressure on the students to be able to wrap their heads around complex concept in such an accelerated time frame. Feel free to get in touch with me if you have questions or concerns on how to navigate through this.
- Educational credentials and Academic achievements of the tutor should matter
- Depth, Experience and Expertise of the tutor in the subject should matter
- Knowledge, Experience and understanding of the tutor in the curriculum being taught should matter

2. Tutored close to 50 students in Mathematics and Physics for the Joint Entrance Examinations for admission to the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology, India ( IIT), National Institutes of Technology (NIT) and Engineering Institutes of National Importance ( INI). 2 students gained admission into IIT Kharagpur, India and close to 20 got selected through the Joint Entrance Examination in various NITs and INIs.
My approach is tailored to each student' need. It is geared to help the student understand the fundamental logic or thinking process behind the problem.
Most often I have witnessed diligent students trying to jump to conclusion in mathematics or physics without grasping the fundamental behind the solut
Practice makes any skill perfect and it is especially true for Mathematics. I consult a variety of sources to pose challenging and interesting questions to my students so that she/he can think beyond his/her school syllabus and prepare for college/university admission.

|Positive Feedback Provided:|
I am humbled by the opportunity. Thank you for your trust in me.
Sumon is a fantastic teacher ,he invests a lot of energy in understanding the student's needs and devises a strategy that would work for the student in collaboration with the parents.
Key highlights from our ongoing engagement for Sumon
Sumon does not wait for parents to reach out. He proactively provides feedback
He works with the schedule of the student using various methods to teach. During the COVID period he quickly switched to online delivery and ensured there is no interruption to learning
Clear and Concise
Sessions and Instructions are very clear and easy to follow.
Willing to go the extra mile
Sumon puts extra effort in ensuring the student understands the concept, allows time for questions and spends extra effort if needed.
Practice and Assessment
He continually provides practice assignments for students to follow up on what they learnt. Reviewing the assignments provides feedback in a timely fashion. He also does assessments on a regular basis and sets up sessions with parents to talk about status.
Prepare for Future
Sumon while focusing on the task at hand also looks for future learning and where the student wants to go. He guides the students around learning strategies for various courses and university programs.
Keep up the good work that you are doing Sumon in preparing the future generations!!!
I am humbled. Many thanks for the opportunity.
Currently my son is attending grade 11 Physics and Maths lessons with Sumon.
My son is truly enjoying his lessons and is tremendously benefiting from him.
Sumon teaches according to every student's capability and level, and challenges them to perform better.
I really appreciate his feedback regarding how well my son is doing.
Overall I can say he is great motivator and teacher! I am really happy to get his help on right time!
I am sure he is going to be a big contributor in my son's success.
your son has great potential to succeed academically. Thank you for providing me the opportunity.
You are an inspiration to students. Thank you so much!
I had got in touch with Sumon through FirstTutors when scouring various websites for tutoring assistance with Grade 12 Math for my son. Opposed to my expectation of the standard ‘to the point’ conversation when he first met up with my son and I, Sumon spent the whole time talking to my son, wanting to know his likes, wants, learning practices, future ambitions etc, all with the intention of customizing his tutoring approach. Going by what I hear from my son, Sumon’s approach is not focused on getting you from point A to point B, but ensuring you understand why you need to make that journey, what tools or means are available to you, and thinking for yourself of possible outcomes or solutions. Owing to this, my son now fully understands and enjoys his lessons, altering his way of thinking to focus on the approach and not just the end result (his words!!).
Again, I really appreciate and thank Sumon for his support and selfless dedication. His immense energy, enthusiasm, and passion for tutoring places him a class above the others in what he does. Greatly recommend and happy to provide reference whenever needed.
On marks: before Sumon took him under his wings (from Dec 2017) our son was averaging 78% in Math. Today, our son is on a consistent +92% - with his class (**Web Address Removed** 10) working at a median of 78% in Math.
Under Sumon’s guidance, we have seen our son continuously grown in self confidence, motivation and perseverance. Grateful to see the way his mind is strengthening by everyday while following Sumon’s schedule; this association has transformed our son’s personality while keeping him humble and stay focussed to the real goal.
Not only as a tutor but Sumon is a great mentor! He guides our boy to keep focussed and stay relevant to the future. With Sumon’s accomplished professional background in Canada, USA and India coupled with his discipline & education accomplishment; one cannot expect a better mentor than him. We would highly recommend Sumon for any student for continuous growth in their formative years at Math/ Science (Sumon also teaches Science for High School and beyond) to this every day changing world.
Again, we don’t know how to thank Sumon enough; it was difficult to comprehend all in short. Therefore, we reached out to our son for his sum up comments about his tutor. Below are his comments on his “mentor”.
* Helped me to increase confidence
* Kept me ahead of material taught in class
* Prepared us consistently with tests and quizzes
* Teaches me multiple ways to approach a problem
* He teaches me how to apply math to real life cases.

Thanks for your comments. It is quite humbling. It is a pleasure to work with Sheil.
He has a good approach on how to instill interest in Mathematics and very fair in assessing the needs and gaps in a student's knowledge.
Sumon is dedicated to making his students understand the math concepts and very methodical in his teaching. He spends extra time where required by explaining the unclarities and encourages students to come forward with any questions they might have.
Sumon is a dedicated, energetic and enthusiast tutor, always going the "extra mile" for the students to ensure theyhave a good understanding of the topics taught, following up on the homework and making himself available for questions in addition to the time allocated for the tutoring sessions.
humbled by your kind comments. Sincerely appreciated.
it has been a pleasure interacting with your family. Sincerely appreciate your kind comments and thank you for providing me with the opportunity. I thorough enjoy the sessions with Dino and will continue to help him succeed at all levels of mathematics.
