About Akshay

My passion for teaching has always come directly from my family. Living with a mother who is a teacher and two sisters who are tutors, I have always witnessed a sense of pure satisfaction in their achievements from working with their students. Throughout schooling, my grandfather who was a math professor would teach me mathematics at the crack of dawn so I could obtain a head start in the fields of algebra, pre-calculus, etc. before I even reached school. Needless to say, these awakenings sharpened my math skills to a fine point, a point which helped me achieve a near perfect score in the ACT Math section and an 800 (or perfect score) in the SAT Math section.

I graduated from Loyola University Maryland in May of 2017. I started working as a credit analyst for a mortgage company named NewdayUSA right upon graduation. Slowly but surely, I realized that my math skills being used for this job weren't giving me the same satisfaction as teaching. In turn, I returned to tutoring.

It is relatively easy for me to connect to and understand my students compared to other tutors since there is less of an age gap. My schedule is extremely flexible; I am available for tutoring all days throughout the week (including weekends). The ultimate goal for myself here is to make sure that my students receive an extra boost of help. When I teach a student, I want to see them learn how to solve all sorts of problems related to that problem, not only the specific problem itself. This will help the student ace any exams, pop quizzes, and quizzes at any given time because the student will understand the foundation of problem-solving via tutoring sessions. Overall, helping my students achieve superior scores will boost their confidence in not only math but possibly other subjects of studies as well.

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

I achieved a near perfect score on the ACT Math section when I took the exam for Loyola University Maryland. ACT Math includes geometry, trigonometry, and algebra, all areas of math that I am highly proficient in. ACT Math is very different from SAT Math and therefore each problem is approached in a different manner, a key step to success that I learned through practice and experience.

Algebra 1

I achieved an "A" in Algebra I and have aced Business Algebra courses at Loyola University Maryland. I have strongly sharpened my algebra skills since then and continue to do so on a daily basis due to my degree in Finance & Information Systems.

Algebra 2

I achieved an "A" in Algebra II and have aced Business Algebra courses at Loyola University Maryland. I have strongly sharpened my algebra skills since then and continue to do so on a daily basis due to my degree in Finance & Information Systems.

Prealgebra

I aced Business Algebra courses at Loyola University Maryland. I have strongly sharpened my algebra skills since then and continue to do so on a daily basis due to my degree in Finance & Information Systems.

SAT Math

I achieved a perfect score on the SAT Math section when I took the exam for Loyola University Maryland. SAT Math includes algebra, word problems, and arithmetic, all areas of math that I am highly proficient in. SAT Math is very different from ACT Math and therefore each problem is approached in a different manner, a key step to success that I learned through practice and experience.
