During college, I tutored part-time for SAT, ACT and Computer Science topics.

Hi, I'm Prateek. I am a software engineer based in California. I graduated with a Bachelors in Computer Science from UC Irvine. During college, I tutored part-time for SAT, ACT and Computer Science topics. I have a passion for teaching, because it allows me to empathize with the student, and provide guidance regarding the subject matter, learning, and test-taking methods. I particularly like 1:1 tutoring, because it allows me to tailor the subject matter to the student, and offer highly effective and personalized insights to help the student master core concepts.

ACT and in specific ACT Science is quite a unique type of test. It does not rely on your ability to memorize subject material. Rather, core learning concepts such as contextualizing information, and understanding the question are far more important skills in excelling in the ACT Science test. My style of teaching aligns perfectly with this subject: I tend to not only teach the subject matter but also how to approach questions. In my four years of tutoring, I have helped my students increase their ACT Science scores by 25-30% on average. Personally, it is my favorite ACT subject, and I take quite a bit of pride on achieving a perfect score in it(36).

I currently work as a Software Engineer, where I write enterprise level code in JavaScript (React.js), Python, and Java (Scala) on a daily basis. I am proficient in 7 programming languages. However, I believe the most important thing about computer programming are the fundamentals, and that is what I teach to my students. I have helped students to master the fundamentals, which in turn allows them to learn programming languages, and apply them in school or work very easily.

My tutoring method comprises of the subject matter, the student's proficiency in the fundamentals, and the student's ability to learn. I tend to focus on all three aspects while tutoring, so that I can set the student up for success not only for the upcoming test, but any subsequent times the subject matter needs to be applied by

Prateek is amazing! One of the best tutors available!

Prateek was extremely knowledgeable and competent. I had a lesson for school and needed some guidance to understand the material. The session was well thought out and the instruction answered all my questions!
