About Ranjani

Hi all, my name is Ranj! I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in Classics and History from Georgetown University in 2013 and am currently enrolled in an MA/PHD program at UCSB, studying the development and history of religions. I was born in Maryland and have been an east-coaster my whole life, though I have to say that I'm quickly growing attached to the west coast!

Although I have only just joined WyzAnt, I have tutoring experience. I tutored students in Math, Science and English through the NHS program in high school, worked to improve students' writing skills at the Georgetown University Writing Center, and have been teaching South Indian Classical Violin to interested students for ten years. I was also a tennis coach for beginning-intermediate tennis students and privately tutored students in Latin and Ancient Greek. I have a rigorous yet fun approach to tutoring - I believe that students learn better when they are truly interested and can relate to the material at hand. That's my focus - to make the material fascinating and maximize the students' learning potential. I truly love teaching and want to teach as a professor upon graduating from my PHD program. I have had great success with all my students in the past and hope to help you as well!

My subjects: I have a knack for languages, having been brought up speaking two South Indian languages along with English and having studied French, Latin, Ancient Greek and Sanskrit throughout high school and college. Other areas of specialty include Writing, Literature, History, Languages, and Test Prep for the SAT and GRE.

I hope to see you soon!

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.

Archaeology

I was a Classical History major at Georgetown University and as part of my major requirements, I spent a semester in Rome at the ICCS (Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies), a Classical Archaeology program through which I visited various archaeological sites (temples, fora, city centers, bathhouses, etc) and studied the archaeological techniques and tools used to excavate these areas. I wrote my final paper for my major on Christian conflict in the early Roman Empire as seen through the archaeological record. I will continue to use the archaeology of the Mediterranean world to support my doctoral dissertation.

Classics

I majored in Classics at Georgetown University and my GPA within my major was between 3.9-4.0 unweighted. I have studied Classics for four years at the University level and have done research with various professors on Classical religion, history and languages. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Classical and Ancient Mediterranean religions at UCSB.

Religion

My education in world religions began in high school through AP World and AP European history courses, as well as a specialized course on Comparative religions. Since then, I have made the history of religions throughout the Classical, Medieval, Renaissance and Modern worlds my focus, gaining a degree in Classical History and a minor in History. I am now enrolled as an MA/PHD student in the Religious Studies department at UCSB. I have taken various courses including Hindu Religious Traditions, Religions of Rome, Ancient Greek religion, Development of Early Christianity, Problem of God, The Reformation in Europe, Medieval Christian Literature, Christian manuscripts, etc.

Excellent tutor! — My son was thrilled about his first session with Ranjani for his A.P. History. She was perfect all around. We highly recommend her. She is punctual, responsive and knows the material inside out. Her enthusiasm for the subject makes it easier for my son to learn. ...
