#### Experience

Have been teaching undergraduate students, mentoring PhD students and high-school students for more than 10 years in the areas of applied mathematics and chemical engineering. Patience and clarity are my strengths.I also help people with Technical Writing (Journal Papers, Reports). I teach a variety of Chemical and OTHER engineering subjects (below listed and more). Students majoring in other engineering subjects like MINING, MATERIAL SCIENCES, are very welcome for courses which include the below given subjects. Post-Graduate Diploma students in engineering are very welcome as well. My emphasis will be high on fundamentals and in problem solving.

******* TESTIMONIALS **************

"Dr M has greatly assisted me with my studies. He has worked through material at a pace which suits my learning best, and is able to provide help with all the difficult questions I have brought to him. I have found his expertise to be an invaluable aid." - Max

" Hey mate ! Just thought I would say thank you all your help over the summer. Just received my results and did well and passed the subject. Cheers" - Ryan (Engg. Math - 1)

====

"Hey mate ! Just Received my uni results ! I got a credit in the maths ! Thank you for all your help over the past semester !" - Ryan (for Engg Math -2)

"Hi Murali

I just want to thank you for the time you spent with Miles getting him up to speed. I believe you made him more confident in maths and stopped his downward spiral. He was quite happy with the HSC, so time will tell. Thank you for all your effort which was greatly appreciated and I wish you success with all your commitments. Hopefully in the future you might have a bit more free time to help tutor my daughter, but for now, I hope you get some time to relax over the Christmas period." - Jane (HSC Math Extension)
