About Priyanka

If you're looking for a tutor who is not only experienced but also works with the psychological barriers and negative self-talk that her student might be facing, I just might be the tutor for you!

Optimism is a key component of my tutorials and students are taught the realistic steps and fundamentals to reach an optimistic goal. Students are challenged to maximize their potential, leaving with them a confidence and self belief that may not have previously existed.

Not only will I cover the content, but I will also teach my students how to manage his/her nervous feelings during the test, and how (s)he can focus on the test itself as opposed to any negative thoughts that pop up.

I have tutored for over 7 years. During my 2.5 years as a SAT instructor and Master tutor with The Princeton Review, I taught and tutored a diverse number of students from an aspiring Olympian to Ivy League-bound individuals. When not exercising my quirky (possibly a little lame) sense of humor, I am working with my student and his/her unique learning abilities, pushing and tweaking lessons to make sure that my student's future is not limited by his/her SAT score, or subject grades. My students have improved by 300+ points in the SAT overall exam, but results vary depending on how diligent each student is in doing homework and assigned practice tests .

By the end of the tutorials, my student will not only have the skills, but (s)he'll look at a problem and have a mental map of how to approach it.

Please let me know if you're interested in having me as your tutor, I look forward to hearing from you. Other than that, have an amazing day!

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.

ACT Math

Not only do I have a strong math background, but I have also been trained by The Princeton Review to teach all components of the ACT.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is a fundamental component of math and some strategies from Algebra 1 also appear on the SAT. I have also been tutoring and teaching Algebra 1 components for over 7 years.

Algebra 2

Taking into account the other components of my math background, Algebra 2 is one of the foundations to move into any other higher component, including Precalculus. I have also spent over 5 years tutoring Algebra 2 students.

Biology

I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Florida International University in Miami, Fl.

College Counseling

College counseling was a part of being an SAT teacher and tutor for The Princeton Review. Not only did I help students attain any information he/she might need, but I also ease fears and reduce anxiety by putting the situation in a different perspective.

Furthermore, students are given a timeline as to where they should be in the college application process at a certain point in time.

Ecology

Part of attaining my Bachelor's degree in Biology was attaining mastery in Ecology.

Elementary Math

Teaching elementary students is not just about knowing the material but also about knowing how to keep a student's attention. I have used games to help students to attain learn math. I also focus on helping my students develop mental math skills.

Elementary Science

After attaining a Bachelor's in Biology, it is safe to say that I have a strong background in science. With elementary students, the primary focus is making the content interesting as well as appealing via games and other activities.

Microsoft PowerPoint

Microsoft PowerPoint is a basic component of any student's learning experience and presentation toolkit. I have been using Microsoft PowerPoint for over 10 years from both a student and a presenter standpoint.

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is an important part of any student's educational experience, from writing papers to taking notes. As such, I have been using Microsoft Word for over 10 years.

Precalculus

Math has always been a strong point, and as such, I have not only taken Precalculus, but have reviewed and tutored the subject.

Proofreading

I have an Associate's degree in English from the University of Florida. The reading and writing assignments not only refined previously existing skills, but developed new components to my writing.

SAT Math

I have been trained by The Princeton Review to teach all components of the SAT. Furthermore, I have completed AP Calculus BC in high school and Calculus 2 as a freshman in undergrad

SAT Reading

Part of my training for The Princeton Review was successfully teaching the Reading component via time saving tricks and strategies that focus on accuracy more than completion.

SAT Writing

The final component of my Princeton Review SAT training was learning the various components and rules of English grammar, as well writing an effective essay.
