« Perfect! THANKS SO MUCH! The class was so much fun! i really needed help before the exams and for once i actually enjoyed learning. i mean i go to Allen but honestly you cleared all of those doubts which nobody else could. i still remember how you explained surface tension and talked about metastable equilibrium. like blew my mind. honestlyin those classes I learnt more than two years in Allen. not only that I just enjoyed it so much. you're just the best.

With awards from IIT Madras and IISc, Bangalore - I'm a vibrant Science and Mathematics educator with extensive experience in personalized tutoring!

Methodology

As someone who has been awarded by IIT-M and IISc for my talents in communicating and excelling in science, my approach to teaching involves exploring Science and Mathematics in as fun and entertaining a manner as possible! Just jog through the reviews from learners from all over the world below! We don't all like the same genres of shows, the same types of books, or even the same movies. The one unifying aspect that characterizes who we are is our diversity - albeit in opinion, culture, or character. So the question then becomes is the same sort of generic broad-spectrum educational treatment going to always work its magic? If we judge everyone on how tall they can build their buildings, we won't only find swiss cheese holes in the inflated foundations, but also a lot of frustrated builders and plenty of lacklustre architecture that they've given rise to.

I've got a pretty different and much more effective approach as the reviews stretching from all across the globe will vouch for. With each concept that we're on a journey to discuss I try to rope in as many vivid examples and visualizations I can! If the quest behind science is to explain how to universe works, what better way to teach it then delving into topics such as outer space or putting yourself in stints from your favourite shows or bits of your favourite novel. Showing him or her how everything is interconnected and laying out the big picture is what really helps as it establishes a sixth sense of sorts in how we perceive things while truly boosting his or her problem-solving skills immensely as well. I usually start with stories from various different contexts, from history to economics to sci-fi and even movies and shows, to get the student involved, I then move through the various nuances of the topic with loads of thought experiments and jokes to keep the atmosphere jovial yet really educational. That's finally topped off with problem-solving sessions. This three-prong approach bolsters his or her creativity as well as passion! It's much like happiness if you genuinely find the run enjoyable then you won't need to count on the finish line to provide you with the inspiration to get on your feet!

It's not just that though, you've gotta learn to put yourself in their shoes and see things from their perspective while painting a picture for them. It's only when you figure out where you stand that you can chalk out a path for where you want to be headed. I can't stress how important this is, I honestly can't make headway without growing a bond! Once you get a feel for where he or she really shines, you can build on those strengths and interests and achieve whatever it is that you've set your sights on! And that's been at the heart of what motivates me to prep for hours to tailor each class into a complete learning experience, which as in turn helped me lend learners from several countries all over the world a hand in being the best they can be.

Just give me one chance and I could promise you that you'll honestly enjoy the learning experience to every last minute!

Background

A true to the heart science lover, I've had the privilege of having sharing the stage with Nobel Prize winners and Fields Medalists and having engaging conversations with them on a wide variety of issues, I really aspire to follow their footsteps someday!

My talents in communicating and excelling in science have won me several awards from prestigious institutes across the world, including those from the Indian Institute of Technology - Madras (IIT-M) and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc).

I've worked with the Indian Institute of Astrophysics and the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research on collaborative research involving Pre-Main-Sequence Stellar Astronomy and Exoplanetary Sciences.

But like Dr Kalam once told me, being an educator is something that honestly tops it all. I'm grateful to have helped out underprivileged kids coming from all kinds of backgrounds and abilities and that's really bolstered my extensive teaching experience! One of my most exuberant attributes is that of communicating science and engaging everyone in a personalized manner by crafting stories that contain the essence of the subject and guiding him or her through the beauty of Physics and Math while additionally immensely improving their problem-solving abilities. If you could find the time to run through the reviews from learners spanning several fascinating places across the globe below, you'll really love what you hear!

Having helped tons of students from various corners of the world, I'm sure that I'd be able to bring the best out of anyone who needs a hand! Feel free to reach out to me just once and I promise I'll try my absolute best to make it worthwhile! Thanks a lot for taking the time out to get this far!

Perfect! THANKS SO MUCH! The class was so much fun! i really needed help before the exams and for once i actually enjoyed learning. i mean i go to Allen but honestly you cleared all of those doubts which nobody else could. i still remember how you explained surface tension and talked about metastable equilibrium. like blew my mind. honestlyin those classes I learnt more than two years in Allen. not only that I just enjoyed it so much. you're just the best. Thank you so much again!!!

Surya's response

Oh come on Rucheera, I ain't all that great :D. Thanks a bunch for letting me know how much you love science right now, really keeps me going. I'm just glad I could help!

Anumita

Perfect! As a parent i wanted someone to help my daughter with calculus. She was struggling with integration and i can surely say as a teacher myelf from experience that Surya is one of the best teachers I've ever met. really i admire how concerned, how cooperative and understanding he is. Whenever we were busy he was always okay with rescheduling and he never charged for the extra half an hour every now and then. And my daughter got outstanding results in all her tests. As someone who never used to study and hated math, he helped her discover and learn to do well in it. As a parent, he's really the best teacher I could hope for

Surya's response

Thank you so much ma'am! It was honestly more her and less me, she always had it in her and I knew she was smart the moment I could see her face light up when I started explaining every little thing to her without leaving anything out. Just makes me happy that she enjoyed the sessions and could find it in her to love the subject and do well!

Naman

Perfect! Excellent sir. thanks for the entertaining and fun classes. i wasn't sure whether to do science after 10th standard but Surya opened a new world for me. one of the best teachers i couldve ever wished to have. makes me proud. Thanks a lot sir

Surya's response

Don't mention Naman. I had a great time too! Just focus on keeping at it and working hard, gotta say you've got loads of potential, I'm just happy I did my bit bringing it out

S
Soham

Perfect! you're like an inspiration to me man! i mean how many people can teach you math with game references and pizza! its not even how fun it was, they show in the results. I didnt think we were going fast enough initially but now ive just got 77/80 in my math exam! loved the classes!

Surya's response

Thanks! Can't beat the feeling of having someone enjoy your work! (Guess Pizza always does the trick)

Mariana

Perfect! I loved the class! English isn't my native language but god I understood everything. It was so much fun, really looking forward to our next session. I love how jokes and facts just make the classes so good :) Thanks

Surya's response

Cheers Mariana! Can't say I could've have had a better time. Just love the way you kept guessing what comes next, always fun to have someone figuring things out in advance

Rishabh

Perfect! THE BEST LEARNING EXPERIENCE I'VE HAD HANDS DOWN! So I needed some help in 11th physics and maths and he's just AMAZING. He connected what I was learning to comic books, real life stories and amazing space stuff that got me hooked. I mean I spent two hours with him and it was like listening to a story :D. It wasn'tj just simple it was really rigorous cause I covered and lot and now I understand it! I had so many problems struggling to remember what I read but the way he teaches it gets printed in your brain. Really recommend him for everyone and anyone who needs a great teacher. Thanks a lot Surya :)

Surya's response

Had a great time with you too Rishabh! Always a treat to see a student who genuinely likes all the cool science I talk about!

Surya is just such an inspiration! he's honestly the best of teachers out there cause he truly brings the best out of you!! I loved the physics sessions we had the most cause he's just brimming with passion and that love for the subjects rubs off on you too xD! It was just so much fun the classes we had cause his approach to education is just so unique in that he tries making the all those abstract concepts so relatable to real life with jokes and some great problems and questions for you to ponder about! I just loved every class we had and I can personally vouch for just how amazing of a teacher he is!!!

Sabina

Surya was just an amazing educator but what really got to me was how great a storyteller he was! God I honestly loved the classes so much! He used to roll out all these difficult concepts in such a brilliant manner with a backstory to pique your interest it was just great. studying was never really easy for me with ADHD but with Surya it was more of a conversation, like an exploration and it was just really nice. you truly need an amazing teaher to do that!

N
Nadeen

Surya is just perfect, he's like so understanding! I was feeling really low at one point and Surya never hesistated to lend a hand, i just loved conversing with him, so he caters his style of teaching exactly according to what you'd like! What makes me smile is how he used to bring in a new concept, you could never guess what he's talking about but it generates so much interest and exuberance in you! And we had problem solving sessions which were so useful in arming me for the SATs! He's just one of the very best out there! Good luck!!!

Lauren

Surya was mindblowing!!! I sometimes even miss those lessons! um what I liked the most about surya is how he used to keep you guessing, i think that's something that says a LOT about a teacher, surya doesn't give you the answer but brings you to it and that literally helped so much! like so many times where i was stuck i used to remember the questions he used to ask me to throw me off balance and i kinda worked my way again and that is just amazing! thanks a bunch Surya!

Amy

Surya was just great! Loved the classes!!!

Kyle

Surya is just incredible! So much knowledge in like one dude LOL! I wasn't really a big fan of math but he knows exactly how to lay it out, all those parts which didn't really make sense like even the most simplest stuff like the factorial of zerp and everything he literally explained it all, but the best part is you dont even realise youre doing math cause its like a whole story with him bringing him concepts from everywhere so it really feels like you're learning something new. that's legit how i wish they taught in school LOL. surya you're fantanstic!!

S
Stita

I had such a blast!!! Loved every class, so i needed help with some algebra and some AP Physics and it was so fun I aced every one of my tests and he even helped me with the applications :) he's the best!

S
Satit

Trust me when I say Surya is THE BEST pal and teacher Ive come across, he's literally so good! he ropes in a story to explain whats going on and he talks about cutting edge research out there which is like so cool. If you truly want studying to be super fun and informative just talk to him once, you'll love it! Thanks again mate!

T
Tanmay

My teacher introduced me to Surya and believe me hes the best teacher Ive had. He has now become a mentor and friend of mine. Really hes just my inspiration at this point. To be that knowledgable, funny and great with teaching is just an amazing skill only he has. I dont even like tuitions but hes really the best even including the teacher who introduced me to him

N
Neera

As a parent I have to say Surya was a great teacher. My son was struggling with physics and had even fought me over tuitions. Surya was recommended to me by a teacher in my sons school who was his mother and he really was worth it. I could see Raghav starting to enjoy the classes, he spent time with Surya talking about math and physics but he really seemed to be interested in what he had to say. Surya was always punctual and always on time and helped my son secure 92% in his tenth grade CBSE board exams.

Review from Surya

QUESTION 01 | 07
What motivates you to teach & why?
Surya — The answer's buried right there in the question - Why? Let me explain - Spare a minute to look at the world around you - take that clock out there clinging onto the wall, or those little glowing dots that poke holes through the darkness of the night sky, or those bolts of lightning that shoot across the skies. It's a fair bet that you've probably seen them all at some point in your life but shrugged it away and got on with the better things in life. Teaching science and mathematics is a lot like poetry, it's about drawing inspiration for the universe and communicating the beauty behind what you see. The simple clock that's been perched against that very same wall for so many years now houses within it a quartz crystal that shivers whenever jolted by electricity, the very same shiver that spell's out each tick you hear. That burst of lightning that slices the night sky in two is just a flash of electrical energy escaping it's imprisonment. Meet the photon - Not just any photon - Your photon. What is a photon? The fundamental unit of light, a submicroscopic jot of pure energy. Nothing appears to distinguish your photon from the trillions of others that pour out of the surface of the distant star. All are forged in the star’s fiery core. All have survived the turbulent, outbound journey from the star's beating heart to outer space. In fact, only one thing sets your photon apart from the others streaking across space and time. This photon is destined to enter your eye. This photon belongs to you. After centuries in the voids of interstellar space, it plunges into the Earth’s atmosphere, fortuitously avoiding annihilation by air molecules and dusty pollutants. Meanwhile, darkness has fallen on your side of the Earth. Strolling underneath the night sky, you look up. The photon enters your eye, strikes your retina, and turns over its luminous energy to the biochemical process we call “sight.” Your photon, plus countless others that precede and trail it, paint in your consciousness the impression of a luminous speck in the heavens. On this clear, dark night, thousands of such specks are visible, altogether a twinkling stellar tapestry arching high above your head. This poetry of the natural world is what I love to communicate.
QUESTION 02 | 07
When did you start developing an interest in your subject area?
Surya — Well science has always fascinated me since I was a kid, I loved to read and I used to fill myself up with amazing facts about the world but I guess I really had my calling around 11th grade. It's when science and mathematics really started to get intense and understanding how everything fit together to dictate the laws of the universe really blew my mind.
QUESTION 03 | 07
If you had to think of a role model for your work, who do you think of & why?
Surya — Can't narrow it down to one but it's Richard Feynman, Newton, Galois, Mozart, Einstein, Hans Zimmer, Carl Sagan and Ramanujan vying for first place. Well I guess you can break geniuses down to two types - those who're amazing but leave you with space to wonder if you could've made it too if you'd just been focused enough to see yourself through. The other's are just so insanely creative you struggle to comprehend how they could've done what they did, and that's where, I believe, true genius lies. Newton never had a father in his life and had to see his mother walk out soon after he was born and come back with another family. Ramanujan's life was an intricate compounding of depression and pure genius. While the fun and challenge in physics lies in its complexity, nobody could break everything down like Feynman, Einstein and Sagan, like the quote goes - If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't really understand it yourself!
QUESTION 04 | 07
What is the biggest obstacle you had to overcome in mastering your craft?
Surya — When you're into science full time you've really gotta balance things out between your love to read and debate, play that one game you've been wanting to for so long, your research and your studies. Time management is something that's been really tough to master. I guess the biggest obstacle though has been in having the guts to follow my passion and doing my best to make myself better each step of the way!
QUESTION 05 | 07
In your opinion, what makes someone excel in your subject area?
Surya — I guess there's no clear cut pathway to excellence and as the Nobel Prize winner Sir Anthony Leggett once told me, serendipity is always a factor! Ultimately it comes down to what are you looking for. If good grades motivate you the most then that's nifty, use that to propel yourself forward. But if you truly want to uncover the inner working of the physical universe, I guess it comes down to creativity, curiosity and commitment. The important thing is to not stop questioning - curiosity has its very own reason for existing. It's not just the questions, it's about working hard enough to find those answers out too. As Carl Sagan puts it - Exploration is in human nature. We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars. You've just gotta ask yourself if you're ready to take that leap of faith!
QUESTION 06 | 07
What would you say to a student who says, "This is too difficult, I give up!"?
Surya — You've gotta love physics, the yearn to explore is encoded within your cells. If you hate it, it is only because you had a bad teacher. Yeah it sure gets tough sometimes, but that's you just getting started. You're better than that. Einstein failed his college entrance exam the first time around, They told Faraday he was too stupid to pronounce words let alone think up the laws of electricity that makes that smartphone nestling on your bed a possibility. It's okay, I've scored pretty darn bad too sometimes and I haven't been my best all the time, but there's a way forward. Despite all the darkness, life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, notice those pretty flowers, and those smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams!
QUESTION 07 | 07
How does someone become a Super Prof?
Surya — You don't. It's really just about trying to find a good laugh or two in your classes while you try to discover science yourself - It's about having fun and finding something nice to learn each time around. It's not about being a Super Prof, it's about being that one friend you talk to right before the exams cause you know you'll just adsorb everything he say's!
