About Divya

Hello!

I am a Doctoral Candidate in Clinical Psychology, and with a Master's degree in Economics and undergraduate degree in the health sciences. I enjoy teaching, and look forward to becoming a professor at some point in time after I finish my doctorate. In the meantime, I'm here helping people by tutoring. :)

I enjoy working with people and have tutored students from the 1st grade through high school. My teaching philosophy is to relate the material to the student's personal life, when possible, to help make the material more personally applicable. I also focus on helping the student understand the thinking behind why, for example in math or physics, a formula is used to solve a particular problem, rather than simply memorizing. For standardized exams, I can help by working on speed with mental math drills and math tricks.

My credentials are in my personal education background and standardized exam scores. I scored 5 (out of a total possible of 5) in high school AP tests for Biology, Statistics and Calculus. I scored in the top 90th percentile, or higher, for the ACT, SAT I, and the SAT II subject tests in Biology, Physics, Math IIC, and Writing. I also scored in the top 95th percentile on the GRE.

In addition, I am happy to help students prepare college applications by reviewing essays and conducting mock-interviews. Please reach out to me to let me know how I can help you. I look forward to hearing from you soon, Thank you!

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.

Anthropology

I have taken college-level cultural anthropology and find the subject matter very interesting. As I start my doctorate degree, I look to continue exploring how culture impacts our day to day lives.

Career Development

I have been a business consultant and mentor to young talent in the industry for many years. So, I am well positioned to help people think through their strengths, weaknesses, and how to use those to advance in their careers. I have experience coaching interview candidates, conducting interviews, and editing resumes.

College Counseling

As someone who has studied at a top-ten college in the United States, I am well-qualified and eager to help high school students prepare for their journey ahead. I can help students consider which colleges to apply to, help them prepare for college interviews, put together their college applications, and revise their essays.

Hindi

I am a native speaker of the Hindi language. I can read, write, and speak Hindi fluently. Additionally, I enjoy learning languages myself, so am familiar with how foreign languages are taught to new learners, for whom it is a second or third language.

Linear Algebra

I have studied math through college, up to the Calculus level. I have taken several standardized math exams in which I always received top scores. These exams include SAT I, ACT, SAT II Math IIC, AP Statistics, AP Calculus, and GRE. Linear Algebra is a subject I learned in high school and am very comfortable teaching the subject to any interested student.

Microsoft Windows

As a business consultant I have had to develop a very high, professional level of proficiency in Microsoft software. This includes the entire Microsoft Windows suite of products, such as Power Point, Word, Excel, Outlook, Visio, and Publisher. My extensive experiences using these technologies make me very comfortable in teaching youth and adult students how to effectively use these productivity tools. The biggest testament to my excellence in teaching computer skills, is my mother, who after learning from me, now teaches computer skills classes herself at her local library!
