About this tutor

I am a semi-retired civil and mechanical engineer currently teaching Math, Physics, Software Development, and Deep Neural Networks for the love of it. I worked 25 years developing technology software, so I am pretty good with applied math too. 

I believe in setting high expectations and hard work. I teach for mastery. We go over concepts until we get them right. And we will use a data driven approach to track progress

My goal is to make you succeed!

When I see the proverbial "light bulb" go off for my students, it really makes my day. Success breeds self confidence and enthusiasm. Seeing that enthusiasm on my students faces is what I enjoy most.

    TODAY was the day I finally passed my test, I am so thankful. You were patient and kind and took your time to really look at my strengths and weaknesses and determine where I needed help the most! I finally obtained my GED, again thank you! Totally recommend! :)

  • Jaden Richards

    Prior to hiring this tutor I had not done any math in over 15 years. I was very insecure in my ability to complete the assigned Math course for my college degree. With the help of my tutor, I went from scoring grades in the low 60s to scoring 80s and above without assistance. I am very happy with my results and more confident in my Math course.

    I liked that I someone contacted me the next day because I really needed tutoring asap! The tutor that contacted me was Dhar who was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly, he made the math easy to understand!! 💯 recommended!!

  • Elton Salazar

    First of all Dhar was very easy to talk to and understand. He made algebra easy for me. He broke down the problems step by step and simplified them. I was really struggling but, now I know it's just a matter of understanding and breaking down the problems in steps, which he did. I 100 % recommend Dhar for any type of math!! Thanks again Dhar!!
