About me

I was born/grew up in: India 

I now live in:   Brampton, Ontario

I completed my training/education at: Masters in Manufacturing Management (BITS Pilani, India), Graduation in Mechanical Engineering (Punjab Technical University), Certificate in Data Science (University of Toronto)

What I do at work

During the day, I work as a Business Analyst. Then I do in-home tutoring in the evening. In my job as a business analyst, I do a number of different tasks. My main role is to work with business leaders to help identify the types of information they need to make decisions. After we collect and analyze the data we collect, I will work with the business leaders to look at the changes that can be made to improve the efficiency of the business and add value. These changes can be in how things are done, the way products are made or how new software or hardware can help. When I recommend changes, I have to balance them against what the financial costs are and the potential benefits.

In the evening, I tutor students up to Grade 12 in math and science. I try to make the learning meaningful and fun. I enjoy using my knowledge of math and science to help them succeed at school.
