About Priya

Hi all!
It's great to meet you! My name is Priya, and I would like to get the opportunity to know you as your tutor! In high school, I took a lot of AP courses which built my work ethic and drive for learning. It paid off as CollegeBoard recognized me as an AP Scholar with Distinction in 2011 and 2012! I was in the Top 15 students of my graduating class. After I graduated high school, I tutored at Mathnasium. I worked with students of various ages and ranges on strengthening their math abilities. These areas included basic algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. At Saint Louis University, I graduated with Latin Honors and earned a spot on the Dean's List for multiple semesters. Additionally, I served as Executive Vice President of Alpha Epsilon Delta, the national health preprofessional honor society. I was an inducted member of Tri-Beta, the national Biological honors society. I also was a dance choreographer (Bhangra, for those of you that are familiar!) for the Indian Student Association. During college, I privately tutored a high school student in chemistry and geometry, and I found that I had really missed teaching students. So I pursued teaching by becoming a TA for General Physiology lab at Saint Louis University. I worked to mentor students during challenging labs, and helped them learn physiology concepts while troubleshooting their technical issues. With all these experiences, I have grown to love helping students and watch them progress with their math and science!

I love getting to know students and really try to understand the way they see concepts! I respect the fact that everyone has a unique perspective which affects their understanding of concepts. Embracing the student's perspective helps me best explain an idea! I hope to make the learning experience a good one!

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.

My daughter was a little nervous as this is new for her. Priya made her feel comfortable and she is now looking forward to next lesson.
