Hello! I'm Ravi and I'm an experienced tutor who has helped students get high scores in classes and standardized tests and gain admission to highly selective private high schools, colleges, and graduate schools.

I have taught to a diverse audience - from underprivileged kids in the Bronx to undergraduates at UC Berkeley and PhD students in Prague.

I hold a PhD from UC Berkeley and degrees from Columbia University, and The Johns Hopkins University. I was recently a Fulbright Fellow in Prague, Czech Republic. But I would rather not be called Doctor. Please call me Ravi.

Here's a brief timeline of my Teaching Experience:

I began teaching guitar lessons as a high school student in Pennsylvania at the request of friends and admirers which grew into 15 students per week. While I was an undergrad at Johns Hopkins I taught advanced math to gifted children through the Center for Talented Youth (CTY) Distance Learning Program. As a grad student at Columbia I tutored Harlem youth. At the same time I began teaching music production after school to children in the Bronx. After finishing at Columbia I shifted in to tutoring Manhattan kids (and some celebrities) focusing on gaining them acceptance at selective private schools and universities. I have helped students score in the 97th percentile and above on ISEE, SSAT, SHSAT, ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT. I also have had great success with math students in Pre-Algebra through Calculus.

My students have attended and/or been accepted at the following schools: Stuyvesant, Bronx Science, Brooklyn Latin, Riverdale, Columbia Prep, Dwight, Horace Mann, High School of American Studies at Lehman College, Baccalaureate School for Global Education, Browning, Trevor Day, Birch Wathen Lenox, and others.

My students have attended and/or been accepted at the following colleges and universities: Columbia, Vassar, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, The Johns Hopkins University, Cal Poly, Tulane, Rollins College, NYU, Fordham, Brown, Indiana University, Williams, and others.

Ravi has been so helpful!

Ravi has been so helpful teaching my son SHSAT skills. He has assessed my son’s areas of strength and weakness really helped him improve the areas where he needed the most help.

Jackelyn, 10 lessons with Ravi

Encouraging, patient, and efficient!

We covered quite a bit during our lesson and Ravi answered all of my questions easily. He is very patient, skilled, and most importantly understands what I'm trying to ask even with my awkward beginner vocabulary. I am very excited to continue violin lessons with him.
