About the Tutor

Hello, everyone! My name is Shiv and I'm a currently junior. I really like Astronomy, math, music, and Cricket. I'm a Nepali native, but I currently live in the PA US. I have always been good at math, but I was never really fond of math until I took Calculus, which change my whole perspective on math and made me realize how useful it is in the real world. I have spent a lot of time doing math and have helped my fellow friends after I realize that math can be hard for some people. My goal is to help my fellow friends around the world and learn new things in life, especially in math, astronomy, and basically everything else. I'm looking forward to seeing you in one of my sessions and helping you tackle your problem.
