About Sumit

My name is Sumit and I am a graduate from the University of Southern California. Before attending USC, I received my Bachelor of Science in biological sciences from the University of California, Irvine. Recently, I worked as the SAT/ACT Math and ACT Sciences teacher at Elite Educational Institute in Anaheim Hills. Elite helps students improve their scores considerably, with most students having a 300 point increase.

I have been tutoring students since high school and have worked with students of various age groups (ranging from 1st grade up to college). My tutoring specialties are in the fields of mathematics and sciences and I have extensive experience tutoring students preparing for the SAT and ACT. I prefer using tutoring methods which involve fun techniques to keep my student engaged and give them the drive to learn. Seeing a student develop over time in their academics and as a person is one of the main reasons I love to tutor. I hope to instill my passion of the sciences and mathematics into my students, to help them in their future endeavors. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the gym, practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and playing basketball with friends.

I have worked as a SAT/ACT math instructor and scored very well on the AP Calculus BC and AP Statistics Exams (5's on both). In high school, I specialized in mathematics and most of my undergraduate classes required extensive knowledge of mathematics.

I earned my Master of Science from the University of Southern California and have tutored students in chemistry and biology for multiple years. At the University of California, Irvine, I served as a larc tutor for the undergraduate biology classes.

My hours are extremely flexible and I am willing to make the drive to help you achieve your highest potential in your math and science classes. Feel free to contact me at any time to schedule lessons.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

Master of science from university of Southern California
Bachelor of science from UCI
Extensive knowledge teaching chemistry

MCAT

I have a master of science from the University of Southern California, but more importantly, I scored in the 98th percentile on this exam. My final score was a 519, with subscores of 129 on chem/physics, 132 in biology and biochemistry, 127 in verbal reasoning and 131 in psych and social behavior. I can assist you with study tactics that will help you excel on this exam. Having taken both versions of the mcat, I feel I am qualified to help you exceed in your academic endeavors.

Study Skills

I've helped many students increase their SAT/ACT scores. Also, I have a master of science from the University of Southern California, so I spent an extensive amount of time honing my own study skills. I have scored well on all of my standardized tests, including the MCAT and SAT.
