About me

If you are struggling to understand any physics concepts, I promise I will help you in making the concepts easier. I am naturally good at communicating hard concepts in easy ways. I believe that it is extremely important to develop deeper understanding of the concepts before worrying about the grades or exams. If the understanding gets better, the student can easily solve any kind of question asked in the exam. So I always focus on deeper understanding of the concepts.

"Karthika is an excellent teacher. She has a strong understanding of the subject and communicates it very well to her students. She is able to break down very difficult concepts and problems into simpler terms so that it is easily understandable. Without her classes I wouldn't have scored as well as I did in my 12th board exams. She is definitely one of the best tuition teachers I have ever had. " "Karthika teaches my daughter Physics. She has sincere interest and concern for her students. She is not only an expert in her subject but also importantly is able to understand the gaps in the students understanding of the subject and comes up with ways to address the gaps. I highly recommend Karthika. "
