Viewing education through the eyes of the learner
Careers of the 21st Century require skills in Science, Technology,
Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Schools have been
responding to this need by incorporating STEM skills into the
curriculum, but this does not always translate into an enhanced
learning experience for students.
In fact, despite all the efforts, it is estimated that more than 80% of high school seniors in the US are not proficient in mathematics and not interested in a STEM career because they feel that it’s hard or uninteresting.
We, at Learnercentric, offer a solution to this problem.
Through learner-centered approaches grounded in Neuroscience, we make
learning a meaningful, joyful and rewarding experience nurturing
confident, motivated and independent learners.
Whether you are a parent trying to help a child struggling with Algebra, or a student wishing to make sense of Calculus, or an adult learner needing to enter the world of Programming, we would love to help!
We work with learners online one-on-one, in small groups and in a blended model as needed.
“ As an undergraduate science student who has never been too strong in math classes, I was seeking help in a Calculus 2 class that I was very much struggling in. With Mr. Dommety’s help, I was able to genuinely learn, as well as excel, in a class that I was initially struggling in. Mr. Dommety implements learning styles that are tailored to the individual student, and focuses on a strong foundational understanding of subjects, which is crucial as students advance in STEM subjects. Through his patient and optimistic tutoring style, I felt very comfortable to be honest about how I was feeling and if the pace of our classes needed to be changed. I was able to become confident in a subject that I used to dread, and I could not have done it without Mr. Dommety’s teaching and help.”
“ Our daughter was having a difficult time in her math class. We started to explore after school tutoring options, and came across Mr. Dommety. Initially, we were skeptical because the sessions were online only, however, we decided to give it a try because it was more convenient. We were interested to see the results of the session. Within a few weeks, we started noticing changes in our daughter, she was happy, confident, and her grades were improving. Three years later, and our daughter is continuing her sessions with Mr. Dommety. Thank you Mr. Dommety for all that you do. The world is result oriented, and Mr. Dommety delivers. ”
“ As someone who had just switched into a STEM major, I was extremely overwhelmed with my coursework. During my first two semesters as Applied Math major, I found that many of the classes I enrolled in were very intensive and fast-paced. Ananth made it a point to take these factors into account and develop strategies that really allowed me to become more comfortable with the material in my classes. Whether it be computer science, upper-level calculus, statistics, discrete math or virtually any other STEM related topic, Ananth is extremely adept at breaking down complex topics into simpler more digestible concepts. Also, it is very clear that he truly enjoys teaching and is very much invested in his student’s success. He regularly goes above and beyond by making it a point to always be available and take care of any lingering questions or problems you may have. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to brush up or broaden on your quantitative skill-set. ”
“ Mr. Dommety helped me develop a better understanding of the
material I was covering in my Honors Algebra 2 and Trigonometry
class. Mr. Dommety always made me feel comfortable with asking
questions and reaching out for help. Even after my sessions, he
was flexible and always provided me with many resources to review
on my own. With his help, I left every session less stressed and
more confident in my ability to compute. Mr. Dommety has also been
a tremendous help in helping me raise my SAT Math score.
Over the course of the year and a half, I have seen great improvement in my grades and in my ability to understand more complex material.”
“ I was struggling in Algebra 1 when I approached Mr. Ananth. Throughout our weekly meetings, he was very patient, kind, and caring. Mr. Ananth offered several strategies which made the concepts clear to understand. I very quickly noticed a positive change in my grade, as well as less stress. I enjoyed math again and learned to be curious. Furthermore, Mr. Ananth is very quick to answer questions and will take the time to explain. I became better prepared for quizzes and confident taking tests. If you are a person who wants to excel in math and enjoy what you’re learning, I recommend Mr. Ananth. ”
“ As a student who has generally struggled in math and science,
Mr. Dommety has aided me in becoming more confident in my
abilities, by showing me what I am capable of.
Mr. Dommety has taught me in both math as well as physics. All across the board, he is extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to explain not only the concept, but the logic behind it. It is due to his teachings that I was able to excel in my rigorous high school math classes. He was patient with me even when I was frustrated and at wits end.
I am very grateful for the help he has given me, and would highly recommend him for anyone who is looking for a tutor who not only cares about teaching you, but cares about your growth as an individual.”
“ Mr. Dommety helped me throughout the year with AP Physics 1 and AP Calculus AB. I gained a much better understanding of the Physics material from each of our sessions. Mr. Dommety made Physics material enjoyable and I gained an appreciation for the subject matter. He is extremely available to answer questions and helped me prepare for in class exams as well as my AP exams. I am so grateful for his help.”
“ Since the first session I had over zoom with Mr. Dommety, I was so shocked and happy with how patient and understanding he was when I had difficulty in any subject. My weekly sessions with him really helped me and very quickly I was able to start seeing a significant improvement in my grades, maintaining an A average in my AP Statistics and Calculus classes. Mr. Dommety also helped me prepare for AP exams during May. He was organized, responsive, and always available when I needed help. I was able to get great scores on my AP’s this year with his help. He is such a great teacher and I felt he really cared about making me feel more confident in the subject matter. Thank you for your help Mr. Dommety! It is so appreciated. ”
“ Mr. Dommety’s tutoring helped me understand my AP Statistics material a whole lot better. Before he started working with me , I was extremely stressed out with the class and was struggling trying to figure out how to manage it. With his help, I was able to actually focus on learning and understanding the material well enough for the exams and was able to use the class time and other times that I’ve spent on this class to focus more on the projects for this class and the other work that I had to do. It really built up my confidence and self esteem and helped me understand what my teacher was teaching more. Mr. Dommety’s method of preparing me for free response helped me a lot. It also heavily lowered my anxiety because tutoring with Mr. Dommety helped me with being able to stay focused on the material and being disciplined enough to want to do well in it. It helped me achieve in confidence each time I studied and helped me relax a lot more before exams. ”
“ Mr. Dommety helped me gain my confidence when I was failing my honors Physics class. He took the time to teach me the foundations before delving into more advanced problems so I could understand key concepts better. After working with him my grades improved significantly by over 20%! He was always extremely patient and kind, and took the time to help me understand what I was learning no matter how long it took. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to improve their grades and confidence! ”
“ I first started taking classes in middle school, when school curriculum was transitioning to common core. I struggled to catch up with the subject matter due to the lack of teaching and physical textbooks. Getting help from Mr. Dommety, particularly with Geometry and Algebra, made everything I was learning much clearer. Every session was focused on developing my understanding of key concepts, and Mr. Dommety was incredibly caring and patient through it all. Having regular classes improved my understanding of the subject and my grades quickly, and they made me a better learner as I continued through high school. ”
“ Besides his in-depth subject knowledge and expertise in
teaching, Ananth’s genuine interest in his students’ success is
