VARSHA AGRAWAL

Founder & Math teacher

I started my career in India where I had my Masters in Engineering, and worked as a data analyst for 15 years in the U.S. I also volunteered as a part-time tutor to refugees in Dallas ISD, coming up with a custom curriculum  that helped them prepare for the SAT.

After having two wonderful daughters, I created Murphy Learning Center in order to get back to doing what I love. I specialize in math, and my favorite feeling is when I can help kids have that "aha!" moment. At Murphy Learning Center, we know exactly what your child needs to meet their educational goals, and we'll do everything to make it happen.
