About Sanjay


Bio

Hello! I am a PhD from the department of Rhetoric at UC Berkeley who has 15+ years of tutoring and teaching experience. In addition to several years teaching at UC Berkeley, I have privately tutored and taught Kaplan courses 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 grad school applications, and I have done targeted work with youth (high school and middle school).

Hello! I am a PhD from the department of Rhetoric at UC Berkeley who has 15+ years of tutoring and teaching experience. In addition to several years teaching at UC Berkeley, I have privately tutored and taught Kaplan courses 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 grad school applications, and I have done targeted work with youth (high school and middle school).

My core area of interest is the college application process (test prep through admission). I enjoy helping ease both students and parents through this oftentimes trying period.

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 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 always strive to keep realistic expectations and open, engaged communication.

I am, of course, more than happy to provide references.

College Counseling

I've tutored for more than 20 years. I've helped dozens of students through the college application process (my specialty is ACT/SAT and applications). In addition, I was a dedicated undergrad counselor for my department at CAL, and I sat as the student rep on our graduate admissions team. I also was a counselor during undergrad at the University of Michigan assisting low income and underprivileged students with the application process and college course loads.

Highly Qualified

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.
