I am an astrophysicist with a PhD in theoretical physics. I currently work at the University of Southampton as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Mathematical Sciences department. Prior to this, I was a research fellow at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel.

I have lectured and tutored courses in Physics and Mathematics at University level and graduate school level. I have also taught Math and Science to secondary and high-school students.

I have co-lectured a course on Introductory Mathematics for Chemists and Oceanographers at the University of Southampton covering topics from basic algebra to calculus, and presented lectures in Physics (Electromagnetism) and 2 graduate level (Msc/PhD) courses in Mathematics. During my "PhD-days" I was a Teaching Assistant where I led discussion-based classes in Physics.

Over the almost 9 years in academia I have come across various students and noticed how each student has his/her own unique way of learning and understanding concepts. I find that the best way for a student to learn is to discover ideas and concepts on their own, and my duty as a tutor will be to guide them through the correct channel built uniquely for them.

From my personal experience, I have noticed that learning math and science goes a long way than just passing grades and making progress in school/university - the problem-solving skills developed at this (early) age goes a long way.

Here are my four cornerstones to effective teaching/tutoring:

* Enthusiasm is contagious - an exuberant and enthusiast tutor can inspire a student.

* Stimulating curiosity and interest are one of the key ingredients.

* Effective questioning is a very important tool that fosters critical thinking.

* Introducing concepts either with its applications to the ongoing research or by telling the history behind the making of the concept helps the student understand the relevance.

Abhay**From Chris (5/5): ** *(University Maths)* Abhay is one of the most intelligent people I've had the pleasure of meeting. He adjusted his teaching style to my needs and pushed me to a level I never thought I could achieve. He set me work to further my learning but was careful not to overload me.

Abhay**From Susan (5/5): ** *(University Maths)* An excellent and conscientious tutor who inspires a real interest in Maths. Abhay makes difficult concepts understandable and usable. My son's confidence has increased no end and we would definitely recommend Abhay to anyone struggling with Maths.

Abhay**From Ella (5/5): ** *(University Physics)* Really helpful. He always explained everything clearly. He gave me extra work as well. He is the best tutor I've ever had.

From Alex (5/5):(University Maths)Abhay is such a nice guy and so easy to get on with and of course an excellent tutor! He made everything so simple and I could feel myself improving with every session, and I was actually enjoying maths! Before any sessions with Abhay I thought that I would never pass my exam but with Abhay's help and guidance I passed! I would recommend Abhay to anyone.
