Excellent All-Around Tutor for all ages (incl Undergrad / Post-grad)
I have always had a passion and love for teaching and tutoring anyone who wants to learn something new. The feeling that one gets when a student has a "light bulb" moment and the material just clicks for them is indescribable. I strive every time for that "click," driven by the desire for every student to realize their own potential and really understand that their capabilities are limited only by their minds.

I have always had a passion and love for teaching and tutoring anyone who wants to learn something new. The feeling that one gets when a student has a "light bulb" moment and the material just clicks for them is indescribable. I strive every time for that "click," driven by the desire for every student to realize their own potential and really understand that their capabilities are limited only by their minds. As a private tutor in the past, I have always felt that everyone has the capacity to learn absolutely anything as long as they are ready to put in the hard work, time, and dedication to really learn the material. That being said, I also understand that every student learns in their own unique manner. I have become quite adept at quickly picking up and understanding that uniqueness for each of my students, tailoring the lesson plans for each student accordingly. With that, I like to plan my lessons to keep my students challenged and engaged with the material, but also keep them in check and make sure that they are not moving forward too quickly in any coursework. Almost all subject matter requires that the previous work's foundation is strong before moving forward. In that spirit, I will assign homework if/when it is necessary, and I will assess the student's familiarity with the material through frequent assessments, occasional quizzing, and periodic progress reports. I will work with the student and the parents (if they are involved) to establish an overarching plan with an overall goal in mind (for example, achieving a better grade in a particular class or getting a better score on a standardized test) and a set of definite checkpoints where the student's growth and mastery over the material will be more formally assessed. These checkpoints will allow for all parties involved to see whether or not the tutor/tutee interaction has produced the results that are expected, and if they have not, to discuss changes that should be made and how to course-correct. I tutor students for all grade levels up to some early collegiate coursework depending on the material. For Math, I tutor in all math subjects, inclusive of most general Computer Science coursework. This includes Elementary Math, Algebra 1, 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-calculus, Math Analysis, Combinatorics / Probability, all the way up to Calculus AB and BC along with Multivariate/Discrete/Vector Calculus, and Linear Algebra. For the hard sciences, I can tutor students in the following: Biology, including Anatomy, Physiology, Microbiology, and any of your core Medical Science subjects; Physics, including Classical Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Astrophysics/Astronomy, and Particle Physics / Quantum Mechanics; Chemistry, including Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Structural and Metabolic Biochemistry For liberal arts and the soft/social sciences, I can tutor students in the following: English Literature, including Reading, Writing, Grammar, and proof-reading; Philosophy, including Epistemology, Metaphysics, Empircism, Logic and Logical Fallacies, Ontological Constructs, etc.; World History & American History, including Early Humans, European, Asian, and African history. I am generally available on weekdays (M-Th) from 1 PM to 1AM; on the weekends, I am available from 12 PM to 2 AM. These times can be adjusted depending on the circumstances, and I am more than happy to work with the student(s) and/or parent(s) to come up with a convenient time to meet. I will travel to meet students in person within the Bay Area (<12-mile radius from the Saratoga area). I can meet beyond that radius, but rate adjustments will need to be made to accommodate the additional mileage and gas costs. For online tutoring, I am always available to meet students through the Wyzant Online platform. For in-person lessons, a discounted, 90-minute first session is provided to establish the tutor-tutee relationship, the goals of the student/parents, and the logistical paradigm. This first session will be charged at $70 for the entire 90 minutes (discounted rate of $46.67/hour). After this initial session, I charge a base rate of $60/hour for any subsequent in-person lessons, and the minimum amount of time I allow for a single subject is 1 hour. All online lessons will be charged at $45/hour. I prorate to the nearest 30 minutes. Lessons with short notice (less than 24 hours notice) will be charged at $75/hour for all students; very short-notice lessons (less than 6 hours notice) will be charged at $90/hour. Please contact me for more details and to set up an initial 90-minute session! I look forward to helping you realize your potential and succeeding in your academic goals!

Very cool and relatable!
Mayank is so much more than a tutor. It is truly amazing the level of attention and guidance that he provided to me and my son before the tutoring even began! He has provided guidance on school classes, helped us to get set up for online tutoring, quickly assessed my son's skill level and provided information about next steps, provided information about SAT prep services and how to focus study and even took the extra step to research current requirements for my son's High School math class. This must certainly be his passion as his level of obvious dedication to the success of students is clear! My son did not originally have interest in online tutoring but after is first session with Mayank, he said that even though he will have to adjust, he knows that Mayank can help him. That's more words than I can usually get this very cool 17-year-old teen to ever say. :) Mayank, I really look forward to working with you!!Alexia, 1 lesson with Mayank
Structured and knowledgeable
AP Calculus AB : Mayank gave an overview class on limits and the topic was clearly explained. He was very engaging, and had prepared before hand whatever materials were necessary. Overall good tutor.Rekha, 1 lesson with Mayank
Patient and knowledgeable
Worked with her on AP Bio giving her understanding around lesson. Follow up lessons coming soon with him again.Samantha, 2 lessons with Mayank
Willing to commit time to his students
He is a great teacher that really wants for the student to understand what the lesson was about before he leaves. He will even stay late in order to reinforce the concepts.Judd, 1 lesson with Mayank
Great AP Physics tutor
Mayank knows his stuff and, most importantly, knows how to teach. He's thoughtful, structured, plans out what to cover, and communicates well with me, My son likes his style and has helped him understand the material.Mike, 1 lesson with Mayank
