Boston University (Master's)
My name is Aparna, and I'm an experienced and qualified math, English, and SAT prep tutor. If you are looking for someone who is dedicated, creative, and passionate about her students' success, then I may be the perfect tutor for you!
I am currently a Ph.D. student and Associate Instructor at the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University. Prior to starting my Ph.D., I completed my master's degree in Economics from Boston University and worked for two years as an economic analyst. As a high school salutatorian and recipient of the prestigious Trustee Scholarship at Boston University, I have personally experienced the joys that academic success can bring to one's life, and I look forward to passing this joy on to others. I believe that I possess two qualities that make me an effective tutor: 1.) a strong grasp on the academic material I teach, and 2.) the ability to effectively communicate and explain concepts to my students.
I have a confident and thorough understanding of all the subjects that I teach. I was fortunate to receive a fantastic education and was an "A" student throughout my academic life. I received a perfect GRE score, my SAT score was in the 99th percentile, and I graduated among the top in my class in high school as well as college. Along my academic journey, I picked up valuable study skills and tactics, which I pass on to my students.
In addition to my own academic strengths, I have significant experience teaching elementary, middle, and high school students. Most of my experience is in one-on-one tutoring for various math subjects (algebra, geometry, and pre-calculus) as well as SAT and test prep.
I am also a certified instructor in the art of Kenpo Karate, which I believe adds a unique dimension to my teaching techniques. My 4 years of experience teaching karate has provided me with valuable coaching and interpersonal skills. Over the years, I have taught 150 students, ages 4 to adult and also trained 6 new assistant instructors. I understand how to inspire and motivate students to do their best, something which has helped me tremendously as a tutor.
In general, I favor a "concept-based" teaching approach. In my tutoring sessions, I first explain a concept and then drill that concept in through dozens of examples and practice problems. They say that practice makes perfect, and when it comes to learning something like math, grammar, or SAT prep, this could not be more true. In my experience, one-on-one tutoring is the best way to learn a subject, as the teacher can explain concepts in a way that makes sense to the student. I firmly believe that everyone has the skills and capacity to be successful academically; it's just a matter of finding a method that works for you. I therefore customize my teaching approach to the needs and interests of my students. I am thoroughly invested in my students, and I go above and beyond to make sure that they are successful.
I look forward to hearing from you! Hello everybody!

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.
