About Lohith

I am a science, math, test preparation, and writing instructor with over 8 years of experience. I have helped students from nearly every imaginable academic background achieve success in the subjects I tutor. This includes algebra 1 and 2, geometry, precalculus, calculus, biology, chemistry, physics, organic chemistry, the SAT, the ACT, SAT II Subject Tests, the MCAT, the GRE, and many more. In fact, I can tell you that I am one of the rare people on the planet who actually enjoys standardized tests. This is because I was able to discover truths about them that enabled me to master them from a young age. But unlike other people who perform well on these tests, I can also confidently and accurately explain the step-by-step approach that I took to arrive at the correct answer. This is because I have spent years studying standardized tests so that I could get inside the minds of the people who actually write them. It is a lesson that I teach all of my students who want to achieve the highest scores. My students are consistently amazed by what they learn in my sessions. They develop a level of confidence in their test performance and their understanding of the subject matter that is intensely gratifying for both me and them.
My teaching approach is tailored to the student. If I see that a student is struggling in an area because of a lack of a conceptual understanding, I will deliver a full lecture on the topic so that any confusions are eliminated. With every problem, I then explain the step-by-step procedure and the difference in the approaches used for a certain type of problem compared to other problems of that type. I also learned through my interactions with clients that many times they do not feel comfortable saying that they do not understand an explanation so I often ask them to explain it back to me. I will omit this step if a client makes the request in order to save time. For visual learners, I feel very comfortable drawing concept maps, diagrams, graphs, etc. and I also make use of images and videos from the internet to further clarify challenging concepts. This is especially useful for sciences such as biology and organic chemistry. The vast majority of my students connect with my teaching style.
As for my educational background, I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Binghamton University, and I am currently working on a second degree in Mechanical Engineering at NJIT. I am not the type of person who never looks at the subject matter of a class that I had taken ever again after the completion of the class. In fact, I will continue studying a subject even if I receive an A in it so that I will attain a mastery of it. This is a quality that has made me such an effective tutor over the years. If you are ready to ace your classes or pass the challenging standardized tests, you have found the right person.

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

I have tutored the ACT for over 4 years. In that time I have developed a mastery of the test that I can readily communicate to my students. For the English portion of the ACT, I will thoroughly cover all of the subject matter in detail and I will teach the strategies for effective time management. My students are consistently amazed by what they learn in the sessions. I bring a level of excitement that is absolutely contagious, so even if you dread standardized tests, you will feel that the sessions are far more interesting than you would otherwise expect.

Genetics

I earned my degree in biology from Binghamton University in 2005. My concentration was the cell and molecular biology track. Genetics, especially on the molecular level, was a consistent theme throughout my degree program. In addition to the theory and knowledge taught in the classroom, I also performed experiments in gene expression. After graduation, I tutored students in genetics at Kean University as part of my service as an Academic Specialist. I continued my studies in Cell and Molecular Biology when I attended graduate school in Rutgers from 2007 to 2008, where my knowledge of genetics was further enhanced. Genetics is not an easy subject, but I can comfortably communicate even the most challenging concepts.

Organic Chemistry

As someone with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, I took Organic Chemistry I and II and Organic Chemistry Lab as part of my program. I received A's in all of these classes and I went on to tutor organic chemistry at Kean University. I currently have over 8 years of experience tutoring this subject, so I have really seen it all. I have worked with students from Kean University, Rutgers, and Montclair. My students are consistently amazed by my depth and breadth of knowledge on this subject and my ease of communication.

Praxis

In my quest for teacher certification, I took and achieved a passing score on the following Praxis exams: Biology, Math II, General Science, and Physics. A certificate of recognition is given to those test takers who score in the top 15%. I received this certificate for Biology, Math II, and General Science. In the General Science Praxis, which covers biology, chemistry, physics, and earth science, I scored a 197 out of 200. As a tutor at Kean University, I helped many students prepare for this test. Very few people would be willing to put themselves through the grueling tests that I went through, but I would want all of my clients to trust me as their instructor.

Math praxis awesome — I never had trouble passing any standardized test until meeting the praxis 2 math content knowledge test (5161). I failed three times with scores of 155, 155, and 156 before I decided it was best to find a tutor to reach the 160 needed. After meeting with Lohith about 6 times, I took the test again and received a score of 183. That is almost a 30 point jump! Lohith has an inspiring knowledge of ma ...
