About Atul

I am an engineer by background. I hold an MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rutgers University, NJ.

I enjoy working with students (elementary, middle, and high school) and have helped a number of students become proficient and independent in many different subjects. The best part about tutoring for me is working with students one-on-one and knowing that I played a part in their academic success.

I stress fundamentals and go the extra length to make sure that students really understand the subject. Once the foundation (in the subject) is built, students start enjoying the subject and they don't need my help any more. Over the years, I have developed an approach to present the mathematical / science concepts in a easy-to-understand manner so the students are able to follow the subject easily.

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 English

ACT English Review with Standard Prep Books (Barron / Peterson etc..). Review new words, grammar, and punctuation with the student.

ACT Math

ACT Test - Trigonometry, Geometry, Algebra, Coordinate Geometry using ACT Test Books.

Test taking strategies will also be covered.

Verbal Expression (VE)

The result is an improved score.


Having worked for last 30 years in different organizations, I have been exposed to deal and operate in different kinds of business environments. A broad experience of working in different fields in different businesses has given me a background and perspective that I can convey to students to deal with different kinds of day-to-day business issues, problems and challenges. I can teach various aspects of doing business, e.g. conceptual ideas (to start a business), market research, different channels, response evaluation, start-up proposals etc..
