My name is Dharshini, but out of convenience people usually call me Darsh or “Dee.” Please feel free to do so too! I’m of Sri Lankan background, which is an island off the southern coast of India. I was always interested in how the human body functioned, so I pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from NJIT and Rutgers. After university, I went on to pursue medicine by earning my MD from All Saints University School of Medicine. While at NJIT, Rutgers, and ASUSOM, I spent time...
My name is Dharshini, but out of convenience people usually call me Darsh or “Dee.” Please feel free to do so too! I’m of Sri Lankan background, which is an island off the southern coast of India. I was always interested in how the human body functioned, so I pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from NJIT and Rutgers. After university, I went on to pursue medicine by earning my MD from All Saints University School of Medicine. While at NJIT, Rutgers, and ASUSOM, I spent time teaching classes and tutoring students in Organic Chemistry, Calculus, Algebra, Biology, and various test preparations (SAT, MCAT, GRE, GED, and GMAT).
I have over 10 years of experience identifying students' individual learning styles and developing an action plans to guide them through the struggles they experience while trying to master a specific subject. Often, I assess what sparks a student's interest in a subject and play off those interests to fully engage them in their study plan. I strongly believe that every student learns differently, and focusing on their individual learning style leads to success.
Some people are visual and others are auditory or kinesthetic. While others are repetitive and need to read and write out what they are learning to grasp a topic. I have methods for all these different types of people. I usually try to teach a topic in at least three different ways so that the person will have the choice of what makes sense to them.
I have found that, because of big class sizes, students are only taught one way of looking at material. And, if they struggle to understand it or if their teacher is not very good at explaining the matter then they are overlooked and the class moves on. Most classes tend to build on previously taught lessons. This is how students are left behind and struggle to pay attention to something they feel they have already failed at.
But, they haven't failed. Students haven't even scratched the surface of their true potential. And, my job is to get them to realise what they are capable of. We build confidence and strengthen understanding in the subject together to the point that that the student no longer needs me. My goal at the end of the tutoring is to be ahead of the class material. And, I look forward to achieve this goal with you!
If you would like to take me on as a tutor or have any questions or concerns please feel free to e-mail or call me. Would love to hear from you and help you with your material!!
Dharsh was very helpful in getting my knowledge up to date for the math GED. Thanks so much Dharsh :)Michael, 2 lessons with Dharshini
> 5 stars!
My daughter said Darsh taught her lots of shortcuts and explained things in a new way that really clicked with her. No other tutors had been able to do that before.Amy , 6 lessons with Dharshini

Great at breaking things down!
She is very patient and able to meet the student at their level. She is also very encouraging. My child is comfortable with her.Jamye , 7 lessons with Dharshini
Patient and helpful
Dharsh was great. She took her time to explain every question I asked. If the solution didn't immediately come to her then she talked through it until we got the answer which was helpful for me to see the process work itself out. She is friendly, has a solid base of knowledge, and the ability to explain WHY answers are correct.Grace, 10 lessons with Dharshini
I had little time to prepare for the test and she helped me organize in a way in which i prepared for the GRE's in a month. I also have some language barriers which Dharshini has been helpful with by sending me vocabulary and practicing a lot. She is punctual. I absolutely recommend her for test prep!Merissa, 1 lesson with Dharshini
The patience she has shown my son is worth it alone. Not only does she help him she brings up his confidence. Best decision I ever made.Marcy, 15 lessons with Dharshini
