Need a little extra help? I'm happy to be in your corner!
My name is Pooja and I am a recent Cornell grad with a pretty varied background -- so I can help with multiple subjects.
I have experience with physics, chemistry, math (multilevel), biology (this was my major), English, and many standardized tests (if you are looking for test prep guidance).
In the past I have taught college-level physics (kinematics and electricity/magnetism) to premedical students and physics majors (at Cornell University). I have tutored math levels ranging from elementary to college calculus, helped students with the SAT, ACT, SAT II, PSAT and several AP tests (such as AP English Language, AP Literature, AP Calculus AB and BC, and AP Physics B and C). I have also taken the new SAT and MCAT myself, so if you're preparing for either of those, let's chat!
I also used to work for my college admissions office, so if you need help with college apps and essays, we can review your approach.
Moreover, I have taken over 21 credits in English literature and composition/creative writing etc., so if you need writing support, we can work on that too!
I know how it feels to struggle in a subject -- especially math -- so I would like to begin by casually meeting you to introduce myself and get a better idea of what you are hoping to gain from the tutoring. This would include any goals, fears, strengths, weaknesses etc., as well as a realistic estimate of how much time you feel comfortable devoting to our sessions.
I also like to look over any syllabi, notes, or textbooks you will be using, so that I can familiarize myself with the way material is normally presented. That way if we hit a roadblock and the material is presented in a confusing or contradictory way, I will be able to present it from another angle that might make more sense.
Then we get started! I'm pretty flexible and really enjoy teaching -- so we can meet as often as you need/want. I will even bring you cupcakes, because I love baking, and the sugar will get us through!
If I sound like a good match for your needs, please don't hesitate to contact me -- I look forward to meeting you!
