About Rajesh

I have completed my B.S. in engineering. I have also completed my MBA. I tutor on weekday evenings, weekends and holidays. I also tutor using WyzAnt online tutoring platform that provides white board, texting, voice call, and screen share over the internet.

I have taught math, science, computer science, business and test preparation to many students.

I teach math to all levels of students. I teach math courses like elementary math, Prealgebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus, Trigonometry, SAT Subject Tests in Math Level 1/ Level 2 etc.

I tutor students for science courses like Physics, AP Physics, Chemistry, SAT Subject tests in Physics and Chemistry, ACT Science, General Science, Physical Science, and Science Olympiad.

I teach math, physics, chemistry, and computer science to International Baccalaureate (IB) students as well. I teach MYP Math, Math SL/HL, Math Studies SL, computer science SL/HL, Chemistry SL, Physics SL/HL.

I prepare students in math and science for tests like SAT, ACT, PSAT, ISEE, SSAT, PSSA, Keystone, GED, AFOQT, ASVAB, Math Counts, and Math League.

I guide all my students on study skills. These are the key skills that help a student succeed. They include reading comprehension, note taking, test taking skill, math skill, time management, understanding (vs. memorizing), and goal setting (vs. procrastination). They help improve the grades of the students. This is evident in student feedback that I have received on WyzAnt from time to time.

I help/advise Business/MBA students in variety of subjects. Please contact me for your specific need.

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

I give a practice test for ACT to find student's weak areas. I emphasize those areas when teaching ACT Math and also teach Math study skills, and reasoning skills for ACT to the student.

ACT Science

I tutor ACT Science students to solve problems in all the three question formats used on ACT Science test.
- Data Representation
- Research Summaries
- Conflicting Viewpoints

I tutor students in general knowledge of natural sciences for this test. Advanced knowledge in science subjects is not required for this test. This test emphasizes scientific reasoning skills over recall of scientific content, skill in mathematics, or reading ability. The Science Test measures the skills required in the natural sciences: interpretation, analysis, evaluation, reasoning, and problem solving.


Based on student's liking/aptitude, I teach student for specific AFOQT composite subtests. I also give helpful tips to help him/her succeed in getting selected for specific officer program.

Awesome tutor!

Rajesh is an amazing tutor! I struggle with math a lot and I could never find someone that could break down each problem step by step for me, but Rajesh can. He makes sure that we answer every single problem together and double checks to see if I understand. It's always a pleasure meeting with him.
