Hello! I'm Ravi and I am 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 University of California, Berkeley and degrees from Columbia University, and The Johns Hopkins University. I was a Fulbright Fellow in Prague, Czech Republic during 2018 to 2019 at the Academy for Performing Arts. But I would rather not be called Doctor. You can 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 The Johns Hopkins University I began teaching advanced math to gifted children through the CTY/IAAY Distance Learning Program. As a grad student at Columbia I tutored underprivileged youth in Harlem through a program called Streetsquash. 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.

I have also worked with college students prepping them for GMAT and GRE as well as in preparing their admissions applications. I have been trained by Princeton Review to teach GMAT prep.

Most recently I was teaching undergraduates while earning my PhD at UC Berkeley.
