About Nilay

Welcome to my page on WyzAnt. It’s nice to meet you!

As a private tutor for the past 17 years, I have learned as much from my students as they have from me. I see my role as not only providing subject content, but also realizing hindrances to my students’ development and empowering them to overcome these difficulties. Doing well in a subject is as much about one’s proficiency in it as it is about one’s thoughts about it. To ensure success beyond the time spent in a tutoring session, I equip my students with core skills that are vital to learning, such as organizational and time management techniques.

Having graduated from New York University, with a Bachelor’s Degree (BA) in Philosophy (Major) and Psychology (Minor), and Sydney University School of Medicine, with a degree as Medical Doctor (MD), I am aware of the hurdles that one needs to overcome to achieve success in an academic environment. Thus, my subject experience is vast and my students from a wide age range. I tutor, the majority of the time, in Math, Science, English and preparation for multiple standardized examinations. I also help write and proofread personal statements, resumes and curriculum vitaes.

I am patient, persistent, supportive, collaborative, and results driven, which means that I value feedback. Feedback can take the form of Report Cards, grades on examinations, school-teacher feedback or parental feedback. Collaboration works and when my students do well, I do well.

You are always welcome to write to me with any questions or queries that you may have.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

-Nilay

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

IELTS

I have taught both in IELTS and in TOEFL previously. My expertise comes from the fact that Australia, where I have lived and worked, allows international medical graduates only to take IELTS to pass the medical requirements for registration in Australia. I am well versed in the IELTS examination requirements and questions.

MCAT

As a Medical School Graduate who has taken the MCAT and who has been exposed to the expectations of the Medical School Curriculum, I can work with you (the prospective Medical School matriculant) to help you understand what is important for the MCAT examination and why. During sessions, I will address each topic tested on the exam, provide you with practice questions and alert you to test taking techniques/strategies.

Pharmacology

I have taken Pharmacology and passed without difficulty in this subject during medical school. I have also helped other students understanding concepts in pharmacology in the past. I would be happy to teach on this subject.

Regents

My high school education took place in NY (Herricks High School, New Hyde Park, NY 11040) and as such I took all of the required Regents examinations. I have tutored in these subjects previously and understand the examination well.
