She's very helpful in going over the subject in depth and in detail. She helps put the information in context so that you may not only understand how to do it but also why you should learn how to do it. I feel as though in math now, I don't have to memorize 100 different formulas but just learning about the concepts within each lesson, I have to learn only a few out of the many I'm taught in school.

Sowmya is very knowledgable, she provides great examples which cement the course materials. If your a santa clara university student she is conveniently close and can help on fairly short notice.

Sowmya has proven to be an excellent math tutor. She is a master in Pre calculus and trigonometry . She has been an outstanding mentor and I thoroughly recommend her without hesitation. I got an A this semester from a C in a span of 4 weeks. Probably that speaks for itself. I always look forward for her lessons.

I am currently a sophomore and I would recommend this tutor to students in higher levels of math. Previously, my tutors did not understand what I needed help with and just explained it the way they learned it in school. However, this tutor goes through everything step by step and teaches the topic from the textbook. She also gives practice quizzes and tests a couple nights before so you are sure to ace the exam. I wish I found her over the summer so I could have gotten ahead in Trigonometry and Precalculus.

Sowmya is a really great tutor and is really helpful when it comes to my math homework. Knowing that i have someone who knows what their doing to help me with math is hopeful for me, because my family has no idea what their doing. I really am greatful for her!

I have been tutored by Sowmya for trig since June 28th. I was having a very hard time preparing for my calculus placement test for Rochester university. Then my mom introduced me to Sowmya for a trial class after having read the reviews on this website. I think it was the best decision I have made to go with her . She helped me improve my scores significantly. I realized how much I enjoy math now than I would ever before. She is extremely patient , friendly and persistent in motivating me to excel. I just gave my test yesterday and scored a winning 97%. I can only keep thanking her. And off I go to New York for undergrad!.
She is someone I would highly recommend. Her pricing is fair for the amount of interest she took in me.

Sowmya makes math fun. I'm always looking forward to her lessons because she perseveres and explains the problems perfectly. She has made me more confident about calculus.

We only had one session with Sowmya but were satisfied with her tutoring abilities. Her fees and requirements do not match our needs at this time.

Sowmya is OUTSTANDING! She tutored my daughter in math for her final of high school. She was extremely good, compassionate, and patient. My daughter "hated" the idea of working with a tutor prior to meeting Sowmya. They absolutely bonded and Sowmya became someone that my daughter natasha looked forward to meeting with. My daughter is off to college now, having passed all of her high school math courses with an A! THANKS Sowmya!!

I whole-heartedly feel that this tutor has been the reason my grade has gone from a 71% to the 86% it is now. With finals coming up, I can feel more confident and composed after these sessions.
Would completely recommend to anyone else with trouble in calculus BC or AB.

Somya is a great tutor. She helped our daughter get an A in Algebra II honors in her freshman year and is currently preparing her for Trigonometry Honors in her sophomore year starting in August. She traveled to our home for 1 on 1 tutoring every week, sometimes twice a week. Very pleasant, patient, knowledgeable and professional.

My daugher recently started meeting with Sowmya who is tutoring her in pre-calculus/math analysis. She is thorough and reliable. My daughter really enjoys working with her. After just a few sessions her grade is on the way up. Recommend her highly.

Sowmya is a very patient and helpful tutor. She has been tutoring me in Physics and I was able to receive an A average on my test scores. I highly recommend Sowmya as a tutor because she actually takes the time to help you understand your materials.

I was having a very hard time in Geometry but then this website helped me find sowmya and the rest is history! She is very dedicated, extremely smart and helpful, very nice, and dependent. Any questions and she will not let you down! After one session with her my grade has gone up by almost 3% that's a crazy large improvement after one session! I have been with many tutors and they all are not as smart, enriching, and dedicated as Sowmya. She wants you to succeed and will make sure that you do end up doing well! She is also open to having you send emails about any further questions you have. Trust me having Sowmya as your tutor is like taking the heaviest burden taken off your back. I used to HATE walking into math class but now I'm excited because not only am I ahead but I am surpassing my classmates! There is no mistake with Sowmya, the only mistake is not working with her! There is nothing left to lose but SOO much to gain!

As a junior in high school, I can say that it's been a great deal of help having Sowmya tutor me. In regards to math, she helped me to review pre-calculus for the SAT math subject 2, and she has taught me a great deal of methods and tricks to handle the varying problems. As for physics, she is incredibly knowledgeable about the all of its many aspects. Her problem solving methods are easy to understand and efficient. I'm incredibly lucky and grateful to have her tutor me on these subjects. I would definitely point anyone in need of help on math or physics toward her way.

Sowmya is very good. She has been working with my son for the past month and is very patient, making sure he understands before moving on. She has been very flexible and is willing to meet at any time that fits our son's schedule. I highly recommend her.
