Hello! I am a PhD from the department of Rhetoric at UC Berkeley who has over a decade of tutoring and teaching experience. In addition to several years teaching at UC Berkeley, I have privately tutored for the following tests: SSAT, ACT, SAT, LSAT, and GRE. I have also worked with clients on reading and writing skills, aided students with college and graduate school applications, and I have done work with youth (high school and middle school) on general education work.
My style is based upon experiential learning. I want students to learn to assess their skill sets, and then I want them to take the steps to improve what needs improvement. How and what a student does to improve is often tailored to his/her interests and ability. For example, if a student needs to improve vocabulary and is interested in Science Fiction, we will approach vocabulary building by reading Science Fiction together and then working on words that appear in the story.

I found Sanjay very knowledgeable, able to explain abstract concepts clearly. He was very polite, on-time, and was able to get to the core of my problem, finding a solution I was able to understand. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would rank him a 4.5 because he was able to assess my weakness and advise me what I needed to do to improve.
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.
