About Aalok


Bio

"I wish I had called you sooner." That's what I hear most often from clients/students/parents.
I am honored to be recognized as one of Wyzant's finest (top 0.3%).
I can help students who are struggling, students who are looking to excel, and everyone else in between.
SAT/ACT is my specialty! In fact, I've trained other tutors as well. I also excel at the GRE/GMAT, scoring a 720 on my first official GMAT. I can especially help you make sense of the math on the GRE/GMAT. Whether you find math...

"I wish I had called you sooner." That's what I hear most often from clients/students/parents.
I am honored to be recognized as one of Wyzant's finest (top 0.3%).
I can help students who are struggling, students who are looking to excel, and everyone else in between.
SAT/ACT is my specialty! In fact, I've trained other tutors as well. I also excel at the GRE/GMAT, scoring a 720 on my first official GMAT. I can especially help you make sense of the math on the GRE/GMAT. Whether you find math difficult or you're looking to earn a top score, I look forward to helping you.
I won't go so far as to say I make tutoring fun, but I make sure it's engaging and meaningful. Tutoring isn't just memorization and repetitive practice drills; that's passive and wastes time. I instill a sense of confidence within my students so they feel they can tackle topics on their own. I've even worked with other tutors and educators to hone their skills and improve their teaching styles.
My experience tutoring so many subjects and exams has given me insight that lets me simplify even the most complex material. That's why I believe myself to be such an effective tutor. I break the material down into simpler concepts.
Experience also allows me to be flexible. Suddenly remember halfway through physics homework that you also have a pre-calc quiz tomorrow and want to spend the rest of our session reviewing for that? You got it.
Education is an investment. Just an increase of 100 points on the SAT, 3 points on the ACT, or a 0.2 increase in GPA can significantly increase merit scholarship awards and dramatically raise a student's chances of being accepted to a better school.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. I'm more than happy to speak with you.
"Each day spent waiting is another class or lecture's worth of material that you potentially fall behind or another low quiz/test score that will only make it harder to recover from. Get in touch today to schedule your free consultation!

Study Skills

An integral part of academic and test-prep tutoring consists of making sure students are studying effectively. I've seen too many students study very hard but not learn anything or retain anything. For study skills, I look to see exactly how the student seems to learn best (writing things down, visually seeing it, or simply by practicing the concept). This yields immediate results and a big boosts in confidence. I have plenty of experience of working with high school students preparing for high school finals and AP Exams at the end of the year, in addition to working with college students prepare for exams like the GRE, MCAT, and college finals.

College Counseling

Over the years I have worked with numerous high school students taking the SAT, ACT, and AP exams. With many of those students, I would sit down with them and look at when these exams are offered and how they line up with final exams or other activities. I also discuss if and when a student should re-take certain standardized exams and when the best time to take certain exams would be (such as end of Junior year or early Senior year). I also sit down with students and parents and talk about course selection, in addition to extra-curricular activities. I spend time going over deadlines in detail and talking to them about early decision, early action, and rolling admissions. I tell my students to work on their essays and the Common Application during the summer so that once the school year starts, they have that much less to do. In addition to that, I discuss with students which teachers and advisers they ask for letter of recommendation. I also help review essays and have helped many students put together applications and edit resumes. I've had a number of parents tell me that I've been more helpful than their son's/daughter's guidance counselor at school.

I have helped several students successfully prepare for the Praxis exam Reading, Writing, and Math. The Praxis is developed by ETS, which is the same organization that develops the SAT, SAT Subject Tests, and the GRE. Hence, the material across all those those exams are very similar. I would make sure the student understood what was on the exam, the format of the exam, and general strategies for the test itself.

I have a degree in Behavioral Neuroscience, so I have taken coursework (some at advanced levels) regarding the content that is tested on this exam. I've tutored several students in the exam and similar exams. I focus on content review when it comes to the math and science sections, and focus on practice when it comes to the reading and English sections. I focus on test-taking techniques and time management strategy. From there I develop a customized plan to help the student bridge any weaknesses and maximize score gains.

Great start

Relieving to have someone who is knowledgeable on the Praxis and gives you tools that will help you to succeed. Would definitely recommend to a friend seeking help with studying for the Praxis.

Kelly, 2 lessons with Aalok

Excellent Tutor!

My daughter is extremely happy, thank you, Aalok! The approach to problems and solutions is something we were looking for: breaking it down to simplicity and clear understanding. We've tried so many different tutors and finally found the professional who can actually break it down in a very efficient and friendly manner. Amazing! Thank you!

Olga, 5 lessons with Aalok

Terrific SAT tutor

My son has only had 2 sessions with Aalok but he has already picked up some very useful strategies for taking the SAT. He has also shown him how to quickly solve some of the math problems that you may see on the test. Aalok has emphasized that just getting the correct answer is not good enough. You want to do it as quickly as possible in order to achieve a high score. We look forward to continuing to work with Aalok.

John, 2 lessons with Aalok

Knowledgeable Tutor

Aalok provide md great tips for the SAT and was extremely patient with the practice problems. He provided a significant amount of practice problems which helped with the actual test.

Ona, 5 lessons with Aalok

Excellent

I'm excelling in many aspects of english and math. He adjusts to your ability and has a lot of patience. I am learning to apply myself more than ever and my confidence in my abilities is gradually increasing since I've been going.

Hunter, 8 lessons with Aalok

Helpful

Aalok provided me with GRE Drill questions previous to our meeting. During our session we went through a number of questions and after completing our session he then sent the answers and the process to get those answers to me which I found to be particularly helpful because I was able to see again where I went wrong at my own pace.

Lorretta, 7 lessons with Aalok

Accommodating and knowledgable

This was out second online tutoring session with Aalok..he tries hard to work around your schedule to accommodate. He is knowledgable in his teachings and keeps the interest of the student..my son does not complain when it's time for tutoring! Do not hesitate when choosing Aalok as your next tutor!

Gina, 2 lessons with Aalok

Helpful and dedicated tutor!

I was struggling in my college-level physics class with knowing how to apply equations and how to set up the problems so that I can solve them. He knew what to do in order to help me and made sure I understood what we were doing to solve the problems we went over. Aalok is a great tutor and went above and beyond with making sure I had all the resources to succeed in my class.
