Hi I'm Mahitha! I am currently a rising third year undergraduate student at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I am a psychology and biology double major. I have tutoring experience with students through elementary school to high school student age in English/Reading. I enjoy reading, writing, and especially helping students with grammar and comprehension for standardized tests such as ACT/SAT.

I have tutoring experience from working at Kumon Math and Reading Center. I worked with mainly preschool age children in both Math and Reading. I have worked as an after school tutor in mostly Reading to middle school students at Mount View Middle School. I enjoy tutoring because it provides a learning platform in which not only knowledge is being exchanged, it is really a wonderful experience to see students develop and improve strategies that not only help them in one specific subject, but in many subjects as well.

My first encounter with psychology was in high school, and I realized I had a passion for the subject. I ended up choosing that to be one of my majors, and since then I have encountered it repeatedly throughout the long list of courses the major requires me to take. I have research experience working in a psychology lab. Our field of study involves being in the lab and also going to the homes of research participants. The study primarily focuses on preschool age children.

I have taken the ACT and SAT, and spent a lot of time thoroughly prepping. My strongest scores were in the English and Reading category, and thorough preparation for these standardized tests not only improved my scores over time, but my grammar and comprehension on a daily basis. Essay preparation for these tests strengthened my confidence in writing essays in general. I took both the old and new version of the SAT, and taking the old SAT really pushed me to expand my vocabulary. I also have a thorough spelling bee background, and competed in various levels (school, county, state-wide) as a part of various bee organizations. This has also shaped my vocabulary and comfort zone in learning more about words. I have a published book of poetry, and although poetry is very different from the styles of writing usually shown in standardized tests, it has definitely strengthened my overall skills in English.

Please feel free to contact me in case of any questions. I am often quick to respond and am pretty flexible. Thank you!
