I have only had two or three sessions with Meeraj for GRE prep-- I am a senior currently preparing for graduate school-- and I must say, his techniques have proven to be very effective, especially given the short amount of time during which we worked together. I had already taken the test prior to our meeting but I wanted to boost my scores up just a bit more to meet the standards for one of the schools I am applying for. And with the techniques that Meeraj had taught me, I recently got the score I have been aiming for on a practice test; and I feel much more prepared and confident before. I would positively recommend Meeraj to anyone who is either looking to start studying for the GRE or improve their scores.

Meeraj was very effective and patient working with my son for a summer Honors Geometry course. He helped my son gain confidence to improve his testing ability, and to better understand concepts. I highly recommend Meeraj and truly appreciate his flexibility to accommodate our schedule. Thank you Meeraj!!

Meeraj is currently tutoring my daughter. She had her first session today, so far so good. She said she likes him a lot and will like to continue her lessons with him.

Meeraj has had only two sessions with my son so far and already has given him so much information to prepare for the SAT exam. He is thorough and explains things in a way my son truly understands. I am looking forward to a confident child taking the SAT because of Meeraj.

My son was struggling since beginning of the school year with Honors Geometry class. Meeraj was able to quickly diagnose issues, thought him tips and tricks to apply when resolving problems, and asked him to put together a formula sheet in preparation for a big test he had coming up. Son got the best test results in his class, and now has a much more positive attitude towards concepts, he is definitely less frustrated and feeling a lot more confident about his ability to master materials and do well in this class. Meeraj is also very responsive via email and/or text messaging, and very accommodating scheduling wise. I believe Meeraj has made a big difference, and would certainly recommend him as an outstanding tutor.

What a great tutor. My son was having difficulty with his 6th grade Math class. I lack the ability to locate his core problem areas and therefore found it difficult to help him.

He helped with old tests and new homework. My son's grade and confidence has gone up tremendously. Well worth the $.

I was only able to meet with Meeraj for several lessons prior to taking the GRE but Meeraj was able to give me a great deal of help for the Analytical Writing Assessment and sections of the Reading Comprehension. He is very knowledgeable about the topics of the GRE and the best strategies to use to tackle each section. Even though I was only able to meet him for a few lessons, I feel more confident in my studies. He is very accommodating and can be reached easily.

My daughter was taught great tips for the reading section of the SAT. She really grasped new ideas and strategies!

Meeraj is an amazing tutor, extremely knowledgeable, and very patient! He helped me prepare for my GRE exam over the summer, giving me tips and tricks to vastly improve my score for all three sections! What makes Meeraj such a great tutor is that he is very patient and always willing to explain anything and everything, even if it was a simple math concept from high school that I probably should have remembered. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for help to study for the GRE/SAT/ACT etc. You are guaranteed to improve your score with his help!

Meeraj is a very dedicated tutor who helped teach my child techniques and vital strategies for taking the SAT. Meeraj tutored my child for several months and we were very pleased with the outcome of the test this November. Most impressive was the score that my child received, in the high 700's, for writing and math. This was a wonderful improvement from before tutoring. We will definitely seek Meeraj's tutoring skills again this spring for upcoming SAT Subject tests. Thanks so much Meeraj for all of your hard work and knowledge! UPDATE: In spring, my child took the ACT and we were thrilled with a 9th percentile result, including a score of 35 in English.

Clarification: the ACT score was in the 99th percentile, not 9th

Yes he taught me well. He has helped me understand certain topics about chemistry. He also starts right away wasting no time.

My daughter likes him. She will continue with him whenever she needs any math tutoring. He has helped my daughter's SAT math. Great math tutor.

Meeraj is very knowledgeable and is an excellent tutor. He tutored my child for the SAT and helped to increase his score by almost 350 points. He scored over 2200 which put him in the 99th percentile. Meeraj is very organized and showed effective strategies for the SAT. He is always on time and easy to reach via email and phone. I highly recommend Meeraj for SAT tutoring.

Meeraj P. prepared my daughter for the SAT's with a concise and thorough plan. He is extremely intelligent, yet able to provide a patient and positive atmosphere. My daughter came home excited about her preparation and confident in her ability to receive a higher score. I would recommend Meeraj to anyone and in a practice test my daughter scored 180-250 points higher.

Meeraj was very helpful from from day 1. In just one session my son has learned a great deal and he easily connects with his students

If your child is struggling in Honors math, Meeraj P. is the right choice in tutor for you. Meeraj began working with my daughter in November 2014 and inside of 3 months her grade increased from a B to an A. He was patient and able to adapt to her learning style. He was extremely competent and explained some complicated math theories, but was able to teach her how to simplify complex problems and maximize test time to ensure completion. In addition, Meeraj was a consummate professional. He was always on time for sessions and even offered to be available if she needed additional help. Thank you Meeraj. Thank you WyzAnt for recommending a phenomenal tutor, who I am looking forward to working with during SAT preparation and would recommend to family and friends.

Meeraj is an excellent tutor. He is very dedicated and easily reachable and responds to emails almost immediately. He is tutoring my daughter for SAT Math, Critical Reading and Writing, and her score has improved by 330 points within a short duration of 6 weeks (2 hours per week) in her practice tests. My daughter is more confident for the SAT test now and she will continue lessons with him for the subject tests. I am so thankful that we found him and would strongly recommend him for tutoring.

After working with Meeraj for about 6 weeks and receiving a perfect 800 on the math section of the SAT, I knew I had to come back and receive additional tutoring for Critical Reading and Writing. His well-organized methods and formulaic structure for every type of question are very effective, especially for a student that responds well to direct approaches. Definitely would recommend for anyone wanting to score higher on their SAT!

Meeraj was an amazing tutor. He prepped me for the GREs in the 5 short weeks that I had. I originally took the test before finding him as a tutor and my scores were far below what I wanted. In 6 sessions he was able to help me bring my scores up 9 points in each section! After taking my GREs again I am very satisfied with my scores! He also have a bunch of strategies and hints that really helped me study!

My daughter is very overwhelmed and nervous about taking the SAT. She has high expectations for herself and when she saw that the October test date was closer than expected, she stared to doubt her capabilities. After one meeting with Meeraj, she was back to her ambitious self. She feels that with his tutoring, worksheets, and techniques, she is going to reach her goal of scoring 2000+ on the SAT. I recommend him and I am going to make arrangements for more training sessions.

Meeraj is an excellent tutor. He worked with my daughter on trig and chemistry. She feels confident for an upcoming test.

Meeraj has tutored my daughter in calculus. He is an excellent tutor. He explains things well, is always prepared, and has a strong knowledge of the subject. My daughter enjoys the lessons with him and always feels that she benefits from working with Meeraj.

My daughter struggled all year with algebra/geometry. She left her first lesson with Meeraj and was instantly more confident. She commented on how knowledgeable Merraj was and most importantly how easily he explained things. He cleared up many issues she was having with just one lesson. She was coming home with average grades all year and after her first lesson with Merraj she got a 90 on her geometry test. I intend to continue having my daughter tutor with Meeraj for as long as she needs it. Thank you.

Meeraj is a great tutor. His method of teaching is very good and helped my son understand the topics. I would highly recommend him for tutoring Physics.

Meeraj is an excellent tutor. He was very well prepared on the topics we went over. He broke down and explained each topic to me until I truly understood the material.

The topics were from human biology/physiology.

Meeraj has been a great tutor and teaching my daughter with SAT Reading/writing/math and my daughter feels more confident with retaking SAT in OCT now. He is a great tutor and very knowledgeable as what I can see. He responds to each and every query on time.

I will provide more feedback as we go through more lessons.

Meeraj is an excellent tutor. He has helped my daughter for Biology SAT very much. I found his help very promptly. He explains everything in great detail, and has helpful methods of making sure that the knowledge is retained. I am happy to have found him. Excellent job.

Meeraj has tutored my daughter 3 times and am very impressed with the results so far. The lessons were very helpful in clarifying difficult/confusing concepts of pre calculus, calculus, trigonometry. In this short time Meeraj was able to help her in understanding things in new ways, solving problems more quickly and efficiently. He showed some new cool tricks.

Meeraj is an amazing SAT teacher. His skills of teaching all three parts of the test have clearly been shown by the lessons. Meeraj has developed new methods of teaching the SAT Verbal. His techniques brought my Critical Reading score from 560 to 660, a crucial jump for me. My SAT scores clearly reflect his teaching methods: 2100, 2150, 2200. I hope that my October test will go well and receive a score higher than 2200.

A great tutor. My son has scored great marks in his geometry test and quiz since he is getting tutored by Meeraj. I would recommend 100% this tutor. My great thanks to him for making my son so smart in geometry.

Meeraj is a very intelligent tutor that understands everything I ask him to help me with. He goes over every topic until it is fully understood. Great tutor not only for school (Math and Physics), but also for SAT and ACT. He is on time for every class and is easy to reach by phone or email.

Meeraj has been a great tutor for my son. He was always available to tutor my son even at short notice. His knowledge of the subject (Physics and Math) and teaching skills turned around my son's grade in a very short period of time. I certainly recommend him!

Meeraj is a great tutor; I needed help with understanding the make up of the GRE. Help knows a good amount of tricks to navigate the sections of the GRE. This tips have help me grow confidence in gaining the score I want on the GRE.

Meeraj was such a help to me. He was able to find my weakness and target it so easily and he worked so hard to help me. I'm so thankful to have found him in time to help me take my AP tests. I felt so ready because he was a better teacher than I have ever had. He was very patient and very prepared. He didn't waste any time and really worked to teach me. The greatest part was that he cared about it and made sure I was prepared.

The AP tests were AP Calculus and AP Biology

Meeraj has given my son many lessons to teach him Chemistry of High School level. He has very deep knowledge of Chemistry, works with my son patiently and prepares good questions to test him.

I also asked Meeraj to give few Physics lesson too, he was equally good at Physics too.

He covers a lot during each session. Compared to other tutors who I contacted, he took fewer lessons and was spot on from day one. I am glad to find him through WyzAnt. Thanks

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I teach students the grammatical material they will need for the ACT English in an intuitive, easy-to-understand way by avoiding formal grammatical terminology and pedagogy and relying instead upon visual cues, common sense, and simply stated precepts. I also teach them cutting-edge strategies (including many of my own invention) that will boost accuracy, speed, and confidence. Results are often noticeable immediately upon completion of the content coverage.

Through years of tutoring math for the ACT as well as for courses such as trigonometry, precalculus, and algebra 2, I have not only become intimately familiar with all the content and problem types that appear on the ACT, but am able to teach all this content in an intuitive, logical way with faster-attained and far superior results to the competition.

I have identified the common trends/clues that appear in each of the four types of ACT passages (Prose Fiction, Humanities, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences) and can teach students how to spot this information to enhance their understanding. Used correctly my methods enable students to attain greater accuracy and confidence than they ever thought possible.

Despite the name, the ACT Science section is actually a modified reading comprehension test. This unique test incorporates graphics such as charts, tables, graphs and diagrams to test certain skills relating to data interpretation, trend prediction, etc. Many of these passages overwhelm and intimidate students; however, I teach my students an innovative strategy that dramatically simplifies the test and results in drastic improvements in accuracy and confidence.

Algebra is the basic language of all higher math, and that is exactly how I teach it - as a language of symbols. By teaching students to recognize key words and verbal cues in word problems, I students to "translate" the problems into equations with relative ease and solve the problem! From the weakest math students to the most advanced, the results of my method are always apparent from the very first lesson. Students learn to think of algebra intuitively and logically resulting in sustainable long-term improvements in their performance which in turn translates into increased confidence in future math courses.

I also offer algebra review for test prep, including SAT Math and the SAT Subject Test in Math.

Algebra 2 focuses on advanced mathematical operations, such as those pertaining to complex numbers, factorization, linear systems, matrices and elementary functions, which comprise the essential knowledge base for trigonometry and precalculus. Often times, students struggle because they lack the essential foundational knowledge or skills to work through the problems with speed and fluency. When teaching Algebra 2, I first focus on instilling proper technique and effective problem-solving habits that are not always covered thoroughly in standard high school courses. I then work with the student to improve their speed and confidence without sacrificing accuracy resulting in significant improvements in relatively short time.

I also offer algebra 2 review for test prep, including SAT Math and the SAT Subject Test in Math.

I have taken anatomy courses at the collegiate, pre-medical and graduate school levels and am familiar with the general scope and content of the subject matter as it is relevant to aspiring medical students and nursing students. When tutoring anatomy, I often tie the material back to relevant examples and applications in medicine and biology to ensure optimal retention and comprehension. by emphasizing the classic "form-fits-function" theme. As much as possible, I try to explain the material using visual analogies to emphasize how anatomical "form" fits biological, evolutionary and physiological "function".

Due to my Biomedical Engineering background, you can expect a strong mastery and grasp of Biology. What I bring to my tutoring sessions for Biology sessions is a new way of looking at every aspect of the subject.

With the extensive use of analogies and examples, I transform even the most advanced concepts and intricate details into an easily understood and readily recallable framework of knowledge. I emphasize visualization and creating connections between new material and old material to better store information and enhance understanding at the deepest level.

My lessons will cover a lot in each session, but it will never feel that way. I will show you superior strategies and ways to organize information into a hierarchy that makes learning meaningful and enjoyable.

I have experience tutoring for both the AP and SAT Subject tests in Biology with great success stories.

I have tutored students in calculus at the regular, AP, and collegiate levels and scored a perfect 5/5 myself on the AP exam when I took it in high school. Factoring in my engineering background, I am well qualified to tutor in this subject and have received many positive reviews and testimonials for doing so.

My lessons will reinforce the conceptual side of calculus by relating everything I teach you to real-world applications in physics, biology, business, and economics. I also teach students to see calculus as a "visual" science by demonstrating how every concept has a graphical interpretation that is useful for deriving formulas, retaining information, and essential for understanding which concept to use in which problems.

In addition, I will show you superior problem solving strategies to solve problems with greater speed and accuracy that makes Calculus easier than you ever thought it could be!

(I also provide intensive review for prerequisite math subject matter including algebra, geometry, algebra 2, trigonometry and precalculus.)

I have experience tutoring for both the AP and SAT Subject tests in Chemistry with great success stories.

I have taught geometry to students at the regular, accelerated, and honors levels as well as for the SAT, the SAT Math Subject test and the GRE general test. Success in geometry relies on the ability to recall and combine specific concepts given geometric clues such as parallel sides, related angles, proportionality and more. I teach students how to "read" a geometry problem so that they will know instantly which concepts to apply and how to reason their way through the problem using the given information. I also show them intuitive math tricks and content-based strategies to work faster and more effectively.

I hold a 99th percentile score on the revised GRE and have extensive knowledge of the layout and content of each section of the test.

My strategies for the verbal and AWA sections along with my content coverage of the quantitative section are bound to boost scores and alleviate test anxiety if applied diligently.

I have taken anatomy and physiology courses at the collegiate, pre-medical, and graduate school levels and am familiar with the general scope and content of the subject matter as it is relevant to aspiring medical students and nursing students. When tutoring these two intertwined subjects, I often tie the material back to relevant examples and applications in medicine and biology to ensure optimal retention and comprehension. As much as possible, I try to explain the material using visual analogies to make the material seem as intuitive as possible.

Through visual methods emphasizing the interpretation of graphs and conceptual methods built around easy-to-understand analogies, I teach students powerful and effective ways to master precalculus and retain their knowledge. Precalculus is cumulative in many ways and is a gateway to calculus and higher math; therefore conceptual understanding is key.

For those struggling with prerequisite math subject matter for precalculus, I also provide intensive review of relevant concepts for algebra, geometry, algebra 2 and trigonometry. I also provide test-prep oriented review for the SAT Math subject test.

As a tutor, I have extensive experience proofreading/editing student papers and have often provided critical support and feedback on term papers and college application essays.

Too often, SAT students make the mistake of viewing the SAT as a "trick" test which can be "gamed" or a test which can only be beaten if they learn to be better test-takers. As a result, they invest in expensive courses and prep books filled with empty "tricks" or generic test-taking strategies that are in turn recycled from different test prep books and most of which are highly ineffective. This is both a waste of time and money.

I have written SAT math programs for test prep companies, and have developed my own content-based curriculum built especially for the unique types of questions seen on the SAT. I know EXACTLY which materials, techniques, and concepts are relevant how to apply them to the SAT. As a result, I have had numerous success stories including several perfect 800 students.

This is both a waste of time and money.

For the SAT Reading section, I have developed a highly effective set of content-based strategies that utilize important textual clues hidden in the passage and the question stem to 1) arrive at the correct answer before looking at the answer choices 2) effectively eliminate "trap" answers. Students will see their speed, confidence and accuracy improve tremendously as they learn to literally "pull" the answers out of the passage!

Used correctly my methods will save a great deal of time and energy when taking the SAT Reading sections and allow you to see immediate improvements in score through the proper application of strategy.

The SAT Writing section is actually the easiest of the three sections in terms of achieving score increases. It consists of a holistically graded essay + a multiple choice grammar test.

Unlike the flat formulaic essays that result from forcing students to merely follow a formula, the essay I teach a student to write develops a mature voice and distinct style.

First, I teach students instead about the components of any good essay (thesis statement, attention grabbing headline, transitions, flow, creative language and compositional risks) and how to properly edit and revise to tighten up the language and tone of the essay.

I then show them how to properly integrate supporting examples into an argument and how to develop an argument to demonstrate critical thinking skills.

For the grammar sections, I teach students how to rapidly and easily eliminate wrong answers and recognize the most commonly tested types of grammatical errors to choose the correct answer.

The keys to success in trigonometry are a strong grasp of 3-4 basic concepts (such as the unit circle, the concept of inverse functions, periodicity, and the pythagorean identity) and learning how to apply them to various situations. Too often students struggle with trigonometry because of the sheer number of different formulas and identities involved; under my tutelage, students learn how to generate and derive knowledge rather than simply memorizing and regurgitating it. I show them effective and reliable substitutions and content-based strategies to enable them to solve trigonometry problems with greater speed and accuracy.

I also offer intensive review for prerequisite math subject matter such as algebra, geometry and algebra 2. For physics students, I provide thorough coverage of trigonometry as it pertains to vector math as well as test-prep oriented review for students taking the SAT Math Subject test.

The more you do with a word, the more likely you are to remember it. I use only the most up-to-date and cutting edge approaches to improve vocabulary. Traditional study methods such as flashcards, mnemonics and verbal puns are combined with the latest theories on learning and cognition to maximize retention and optimize recall on a test.

I attained a Master's Degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Creative Writing.
