Gold Medalist in M.Sc (biochemistry), Decade of teaching experience (Online/ Offline) for Grades 4-10 (Science), Grades 11-12 (Biology/ Chemistry ) and Grades 4-8 (Math)

Methodology

I use different modern teaching aids like power point presentations or different new age digital teaching aids (depending on the institution and availability) and I modify my approach to the subject depending on the student audience. I use multiple dimensional reinforcement techniques so that each and every student grasps my concepts well. I use diagrams and experiments in various degrees to explain the same concept. Depending on the school board and their needs, I modify my approach to suit the teaching needs of the student. As much as I am a patient teacher, I am also a patient listener and always encourage getting feedback from the student by involving them in my lecture so that I can calibrate my session with utmost accuracy.

This has been well accepted with my students in Toronto.

Smitha 's response

The twin kids of Pramiti are well mannered and intelligent. They put in their hard work and get nicely involved in my teaching lessons which helps me as a tutor. Any tutor’s delight. The family is also very nice and professional.

A great tutor. Smitha ma'am is very knowledgable and conveys her knowledge in a manner that is easily understandable. She is patient and always has a positive attitude. She tutored me in biology for a year. Taking her classes improved my grades drastically. I would highly recommend taking her lessons.

Me, my wife and our son are big fan of Smitha. One of my friend recommended her as a tutor for our son for online tutoring. Initially I was sceptical about online tutoring experience as our son is naughty and he was not at all obedient when it comes to studies. He is in 9th grade and we tried few tutors in London but he was not happy with any. Finally we decided to try online tutoring and it turned out blessings for us. I’m extremely thankful to Smitha the way she handed online biology and chemistry learning experience for my son. Initially my son was reluctant before starting but then Smitha made learning and tutoring so interesting and easy for him. She has an excellent fundamental knowledge of both subjects. Once me and my wife have observed them studying and I got impressed looking at my son paying full attention and he was involved like never before. Smitha’s delivery and explaining things are too good. She uses different ways and makes online tutoring joyful for learners. She is very punctual and polite. My son started loving subjects he used to hate it before. I strongly recommend her for online tutoring. Hardeek

My son was always afraid of biology & chemistry subject and it was difficult task to teach him his subject specially during his grade 8. Fortunately, I received Smitha’s reference from my colleague who highly recommended her online session based on his experience with his daughter. (He was full of praises for smitha). And his recommendation turned out true for me as well. Smitha’s teaching technique or skills made my son very confortable with the subject and slowly he started taking keen interest in biology and chemistry. All thanks to smitha’s who has been persistent in her approach and puncutual in conducting online session with my Son. Also highly appreciated her patienece in clearing multiple queries of my son. A big thank you from me and my son to Smitha.

I came to know about Smitha through one of my friends whose daughter she had taught for grade 10. Smitha developed an excellent rapport with my son , whom she has been tutoring online for the past 2 years , when he started grade 6 in Toronto. My son's interest in science has increased manifold . Her concepts are strong , and her content knowledge and delivery is very good. She is very sincere and always inquisitive about how much my son has grasped and always looking to improvise . Highly recommended.
