About Lakshmi

I have been tutoring for about 8 years now, in areas ranging from academics to visual arts. I began tutoring in my second year of high school when I discovered my love for teaching others and helping them grow. I have had great success with my students over the years, all ranging from elementary school to high school level and even non-traditional college students.

I began as a Mentor in my middle school and continued as one in the National Honor Society in high school. I taught ACT and SAT test prep in high school. In college, I worked as a Supplemental Instructor for chemistry, where I led bi-weekly instruction sessions for the course and tutored individual students one-on-one. Later, I was hired to be a Peer Mentor for a general biology course for my college’s biology department.

I enjoy working with students one-on-one and in small group sessions, where I believe they get the most amount of tutor-student interaction. Through my own experience as a tutor and as a student, I think I have the determination and skill to solidify the material reviewed. I look forward to working with you in achieving your test scores and GPA goals!


The ACT Mathematics section consists of 60 questions with 60 minutes to finish the section. With subjects ranging from pre-algebra to pre-calculus, ACT Math is one that requires consistent practice and review. I have scored in the 98 percentile on the Math section. My drive to lead students to success, my intimate attention to detail, and persistent nature serve as beneficial tools to my students. I give my students practice problems, worksheets, and previous exam questions administered by the official ACT administration. Additionally, I will use Princeton Review, Kaplan, and McGraw Hill resources to assign homework problems to my students. These assignments will further reinforce the concepts of discussed during the tutoring session.

I look forward to succeeding with you on the ACT Math section!

Being a pre-medical student in research-oriented university, I have taken several upper level biology classes and have succeeded in them. Physiology is a unique biology subject in that it requires incorporation of anatomy with biological chemistry. Throughout my studies, I have created study techniques to understand the intricate human body and the functions that make the human body less daunting and more approachable. During my sessions, I will share these techniques with my students in order to ensure their success with physiology lessons.

I began my pursuit for the Spanish language in my 7th grade, when my World Languages teacher invited me to sign up for her class. Since then, I fell in love with the Spanish language and am still a student on the language in college. I studied the language throughout my four years of high school and am still studying it as I am pursuing a Spanish minor. Having taken rigorous classes that emphasize culture, grammar, vocabulary, literature, and having first-hand experience volunteering in a Hispanic organization, I have experience Spanish beyond the classroom that I will pass on to my students. Being a trilingual student, I have established ways to learn and relate the structure and syntax of the language back to English.

I look forward to helping you out with this fascinating language!


The ACT English section is the first section of the test covering usage/mechanics and rhetorical skills of English grammar. This 75-question test consists of five passages with various sections underlined on one side of the page and options to correct the underlined portions. I scored in the 98 percentile on the English section. Through rigorous practice and a strong grasp on the conventional English grammar and syntax, I could lend a helping hand to my students and help them achieve the scores they desire. Using practice problems from old ACT exams and books from leading preparatory companies, I assign my students practice problems that will guide them through the English section on their own time. This practice outside of tutoring sessions will prepare them for the test during real time conditions.

I look forward to working with you on the ACT English section!

*I also tutor ACT Mathematics*

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about my sessions or any material matter. I am free through email 7 days a week and respond within 5-6 hours. Whatever subject you’re learning, I’d be happy to work alongside with you in achieving your goals!

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 scored in the 98th percentile in ACT Math so I completely understand the amount of work that goes into scoring high in this section. I'd be more than willing to help you out with this section.
