About Arjun

I attended Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, majoring in Molecular and Cellular Biology and minoring in music. I graduated in 3 years, and I currently remain at Hopkins to complete a one-year master's program in Molecular Biology, while also applying to medical schools. Before college, I attended the Illinois Math and Science Academy (IMSA) in Aurora, IL. I scored a 36 on my June 2012 ACT, and more recently scored in the 96th percentile on my MCAT.

I tutor ACT/SAT as well as most school subjects, and I am very comfortable working with students. I always stress understanding the core concepts rather than just learning "how to pass the test," so that students are able to tackle difficult and unfamiliar problems. Frequently, I will ask students to answer questions of my own, rather than just problems from a textbook, to help them understand a certain concept. Furthermore, as someone who has recently taken these subjects and standardized tests, I relate well with students and always let them know what worked for me when I was in their shoes.

I am an Eagle Scout, and working with younger scouts— whether it was teaching them first aid or how to tie knots— has helped me become a better teacher and has given me the patience to explain concepts to others. During high school, I was a writing tutor and frequently helped my peers with their assignments, from chemistry to math to biology. Currently, I am a teaching assistant for the Hopkins department of applied math and statistics.

Outside of classes, I enjoy researching in one of Hopkins’ biology labs, giving tours on campus, and running the Hopkins Cricket Club. I also play the piano, guitar, and drums, and I direct one of Hopkins' a cappella groups.

I tutor both on the JHU Homewood Campus and in the Chicago area, depending on my current location. Please feel free to send me any questions you may have while trying to find a good tutoring fit. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Composition (Music)

I have been playing musical instruments for about 15 years: Piano (15), Singing (8), Percussion (4), and Guitar (3).

As a music minor, I have taken 4 formal music theory and music history courses, and I plan to continue them over my undergraduate career. A significant portion of these classes is being able to compose music and write parts. I also have arranged music for several instruments and for the a cappella group, which I am director of. Lastly, I compose and arrange music on my own time. Through all of these, I have a wide variety of experience in composing several genres of music, from classical to pop music.

Ear Training

I have been playing musical instruments for about 15 years:
Piano (15)
Singing (8)
Percussion (4)
Guitar (3)

I learned piano via the Suzuki method, which emphasizes ear training instead of sight reading. I have near-perfect and excellent relative pitch, and can easily detect intervals and chord types.

As a music minor, I have taken 4 formal music theory and music history courses, and I plan to continue them over my undergraduate career. Listening to music is essential to all of those classes. I also direct an a cappella group, which involves listening for blending and pitch accuracy.
