All of Shashi’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Shashi’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

ACT Math

I have tutored high school students in test preparation (ACT/SAT/SATII/AP) for 3 years at Advantage Testing of Westchester with a focus on both content and strategy.

Algebra 1

I have taught all high school math classes ranging from prealgebra to AP calculus BC as well as International Baccalaureate HL Math multiple times at multiple schools. I have written the curriculum for Algebra 1 at 3 different start-up high schools.

Algebra 2

I have taught all high school math classes and have written the curriculum for algebra 2 at three different start-up high schools.

Calculus

I have taught all high school math classes ranging from pre-algebra to AP Calculus BC as well as International Baccalaureate HL Math multiple times at multiple schools. I have also tutored high school students in test preparation (ACT/SAT/SATII/AP) for 3 years at Advantage Testing of Westchester. In addition, I have tutored Columbia University pre-med students for MCAT preparation.

Physical Science

I have taught physical science, physics, AP Physics B & C, and International Baccalaureate Physics multiple years at multiple high schools. I have written curricula for these courses at 3 different start up high schools.

Physics

I have tutored students at Advantage Testing of Westchester for SATII Physics and AP Physics. In addition I have tutored Columbia University pre-med students in physics as they prepared for the MCAT.

Prealgebra

I have taught all high school math classes ranging from Pre-algebra to AP Calculus BC as well as International Baccalaureate HL Math. I have written the curriculum for Pre-Algebra at 3 different start up high schools. I have also taught at a middle high school and tutored multiple students in Pre-Algebra.

Precalculus

I have tutored high school students in test preparation (ACT/SAT/SATII/AP) for 3 years at Advantage Testing of Westchester. I have written the Precalculus curriculum for 2 start up high schools.

Probability

I have written the probability curriculum for 2 start up high schools. I believe that probability is amongst the most challenging fields in mathematics for high school students (more so than calculus) and instruction will focus on both theory and simulation.

PSAT

I tutored at Advantage Testing of Westchester for 3 years. During this time I prepared students for the PSAT/SAT/SAT II/ACT and AP exams. I also wrote the curriculum for a PSAT/SAT prep class at Bow High School in New Hampshire and taught the class for several years. While a high school student, taking the PSAT allowed me to qualify for a National Merit Scholarship.

Regents

I have written curricula for new high schools in New Hampshire and New York with an eye to aligning the curricula with state testing standards. I have tutored hundreds of students for standardized testing ranging from GED to ACT to SAT to AP to MCAT. This combination of experiences connecting school curricula to standardized testing is at the heart of preparing for excellence while taking the Regents.

SAT Math

I have personally done all SAT Math questions from every released test over the past 20 years and can certainly share that experience with students.

SAT Reading

I have personally done all SAT Reading questions from every released test over the past 20 years. I can share strategies with students who are slow readers as well as those who wish to improve vocabulary identification.

SAT Writing

I have personally done all SAT Writing questions and essays from every released test since the Writing section was added to the SAT and can certainly share that experience with students.

Study Skills

I have taught in high school classrooms from 1989 to 2008 in New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Washington DC. During this time I have worked with teenagers from every background possible with the full spectrum of learning needs. In addition, I have made a living as a full time tutor since 2009 with a wide spectrum of students including those aspiring to Ivy league schools, GED track students, and home schooled teenagers. I have an expansive background regarding learning styles and am adept at assessing students learning strengths and weaknesses, followed by recommending suggestions for extension or remediation. I believe that I can quickly determine specific organisational skills that may benefit a particular individual.

Trigonometry

I have written the Trigonometry curriculum for 2 start up high schools. I have ample experience in simplifying the proof of trigonometric identities.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
