MY TEACHING METHODOLOGY:
1.STRATEGY – Learn section-specific strategies to eliminate any mistakes that are due to inefficiency in your approach. This allows for more accurate diagnostics.
2.DIAGNOSTICS – Complete a test or section. Review it with me. Identify EXACTLY why you got something wrong, & learn any concepts or skills you need to fix it.
3.INTEGRATION – Apply what you learn to fix your mistakes. Reinforce all learnings with targeted homework. Repeat steps 2 – 3 till target is reached.

Due to this highly adaptive method, my lessons are streamlined, high-yield, & 100% personalized. No one-size-fits-all approach. No bloated syllabus. No vague “tips & tricks”. Just content & strategy. Assuming they do the homework, most students get their best score in as little as 1 session per week over 2 – 3 months.

With a Master's Degree in Creative Writing and over 8 years of experience tutoring students for the SAT Writing section, I am uniquely qualified to help students with various writing projects. Unlike the flat formulaic essays that result from forcing students to merely follow a formula, the essays I teach a student to write reveal the gradual development of 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, structure, creative language and compositional risks). Next, I show them how to properly integrate supporting examples into an argument well as how to develop their argument to demonstrate critical thinking skills. Finally, I show them how to properly edit and revise their essays to tighten up the language and enhance the tone of the essay.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

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,

Algebra 2

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.
Biology,

Biology

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.
Calculus,

Calculus

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.)

Geometry,

Geometry

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.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

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.

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

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.

Effective Tutor

I had a pleasant experience with Meeraj on the GRE exam, and will recommend his services to others for the following reasons: Strategic - Meeraj followed a data driven approach to draw insights on what my weaknesses were. Through this he was able to craft a succinct game plan where the agenda for each lesson and homework targets were set Flexible - I had to take the exam over the festive period and Meeraj was flexible to accommodate my schedule in such a busy period Effective- My encounter with Meeraj was over a short period of time, in 5 lessons I was able to achieve a score improvement of 9 points on the GRE because of his guidance

I recommend him without reservation for your tutoring needs!

A friend of my son's highly recommended Meeraj's service to us, and I must say that I'm very glad they did. My son takes AP classes at his school and gets As, but when it came to the ACT, he needed a tutor to help him realize that same academic potential. We worked with Meeraj for a total of 14 hours, and it was certainly worth it in the end, as my son earned a 34 on his ACT and a 35 superscore. He also secured a very high score on his SAT, and we're both very happy with all of these score results. It was very convenient having one tutor to provide all of the practice tests and materials as well as to manage all the instruction and homework for all sections of the 2 exams. The flexibility of the online lesson format was a definite plus, as was Meeraj's flexibility in scheduling (and rescheduling) sessions, moreover. I recommend him without reservation for your tutoring needs!

Knowledgeable and effective tutor

Meeraj really knows what he is talking about when it comes to the GRE. He provided helpful resources for review and always explained concepts with useful visualizations and detailed notes. With his tutoring I improved my GRE score by 13 points overall. Totally recommend!

Knowledgeable Tutor

Meeraj quickly diagnosed my daughters issues with the math portion of both SAT and ACT and got right to helping her with the Geometry section. He is quick to respond and has great advice on improving your test taking skills.

He is excellent!

Meeraj's tutoring service is exactly what my son needed! After about a month of lessons, he got a perfect score on his ACT, and he credited Meeraj's lessons as being instrumental to his success, saying that both the high-level methods for strategically handling each section and the really simple breakdown of even very advanced or obscure topics provided the finish he needed. That perfect 36 is going to go a long way in securing a seat at my son's top choice schools. Well worth it!!!

Great Test Prep Tutor

My daughter worked with Meeraj on SAT and ACT prep. He taught her some really useful strategies for all 3 sections, and the sessions were very stream-lined and super-effective! Over 11 hours of tutoring, one hour per week, her SAT score rose considerably to the point where she consistently achieved 1500+ on her practice tests. After some thought, we also took about 7 ACT sessions in order to be prepared for any contingency (given the uncertainty of testing dates over 2020-21). Her ACT score also improved with Meeraj's strategies, as she averaged 34 out of 36 on practice tests. In the end, she was finally able to sit for the SAT and super-scored a 1530. This score was a factor in earning her a merit-scholarship, and we'll be sending our second child to work with Meeraj too!

Great SAT Tutor

In just 4 lessons with Meeraj, my son improved his SAT score by 170 points! The lessons were super-efficient: he took one Reading lesson, 1 English lesson, and 2 Math lessons, learning key strategic points and valuable tactics for each and every section. He scored a 1550 out of 1600 and received a perfect 800 on Math. We gave Meeraj's name to a friend, and absolutely recommend his tutoring!

Great SAT Tutor

Meeraj is a very friendly and communicative tutor, as he helped my son through 10 weeks in many different aspects of the SAT. His strategies are straightforward and concise, and my son was able to attain a 1500+ score with consistent practice with him. Overall, Meeraj is a great tutor for those who would like a more relaxed yet comprehensive SAT service. I highly recommend him for any students taking standardized tests soon!

Thanks so much for everything, Meeraj!

Meeraj tutored me in all 4 sections of the ACT over the course of 2020. What I liked most about Meeraj's tutoring was his ability to optimize our use of time. Both in our sessions and in the homework, there was always a nice balance between dealing with new issues that came up on my practice tests and retaining older material and strategies as time went on. Having just one tutor to deal with all four sections in this way was a HUGE convenience - it would have been much harder if I had to work with different tutors for Verbal, Math, and Science, but Meeraj was able to help me juggle all of this in just one hour a week! My score improved substantially as a result of our lessons: within just 2 months of starting the tutoring I saw myself scoring consistently between 33 and 35 overall by using his strategies. 2020 was a rough year to be in high school thanks to the pandemic, and it was frustrating to see my test dates get cancelled over and over again, but Meeraj kept me focused on my test prep and helped me stay motivated and sharp all throughout this time. Eventually, I was able to take the ACT in October, and I scored a 34 composite on my test! Seeing the 35 on Reading especially (which used to feel like my Achilles heel) felt like the perfect end to a crazy year! Thanks so much for everything, Meeraj!
