**Ranked as one of Wyzant’s Top 100 Tutors Nationwide
**70+ Testimonials - more reviews than the combined staff at most tutoring centers
**Holder of 99th Percentile (Top 1%) Scores on the SAT, ACT, & GRE
**10+ years of experience with 10,000+ hours in 1-on-1 lessons, classes, & workshops
**State-of-the-art curriculum, featuring battle-tested techniques & high-yield approaches for every section & question type

Ten years ago, I taught my very first SAT class, substituting for a certified high school teacher & highly experienced test prep instructor. At the end, I overheard one student tell her friends as they left the room: "For the first time since I started this class, I actually get this stuff. I wish we had this new teacher earlier. Hope he stays." Her friends nodded in emphatic assent. From that moment, I have been hooked on teaching.

The best tutoring firms in NJ - Integrated Educational Services (IES), Summit Prep (formerly Ivy Plus), EMBRACE Tutoring - have recruited & hired me to teach students, train staff, develop curriculum, & design cutting-edge techniques to give our students a commanding lead. I have retained the best of these methods for my students, & most of these are unavailable anywhere else.

My results far outstrip industry standards. Given sufficient time/effort in preparation, test scores typically improve by 250 - 600 points on the Old SAT, 150 - 300 on the New SAT, 5 - 9 points on the ACT, & 6 - 20 points on the GRE. Many students have achieved perfect 800’s + 36’s on all sections of the SAT & ACT.

I regularly receive online tutoring requests from all corners of New Jersey & New York, & even have online tutoring requests from as far away as California, Hawaii, Dubai, & Bolivia.

Past students have received numerous scholarships & acceptances to such excellent institutions as NYU, Columbia, UMass, UMich, Johns Hopkins, William and Mary, Rutgers, Wesleyan, Northeastern, & many more.

TEACHING STYLE

1. SEE WHAT GENIUSES SEE - When students struggle with a task, a common complaint is that they “have no idea how to approach it”. They also assume that those who perform better have abilities beyond compare. In reality, however, top performers just have better strategies and a good idea of when to use them.

Consider tennis champions. Most people attribute their success to superhuman reflexes. However, these players simply spot clues that others miss (i.e. see their opponent's body mechanics), link them to a past scenario (predict where the ball will go based on past observations of such body mechanics), & match the scenario to the appropriate tactic (know where to stand & how to swing). In short, if they see X, they do Y.

My teaching style reduces to "If you see X, do Y”. I teach students to match concepts to clues and tactics to common scenarios, thereby putting an end to the days when they did not know how to “approach the question”. My students learn to see the same clues top-performers see, gaining a competitive edge.

2. ELIMINATE WEAKNESSES - When studying on their own, few students can actually improve their own performance. This is because they know where they struggle, but not how or why they go wrong. As a result, they cannot learn from their mistakes.

My sessions follow this structure: A) Identifying specific aspects of their performance to improve - i.e. setting up an equation, writing a stronger thesis; B) Teaching concrete, applicable, step-by-step strategies that produce the desired effect; C) Having them apply those strategies to fix their mistakes on their own, as proof of what they have learned; and D) Re-enforcing each lesson with targeted and deliberate practice.

VERDICT OF PARENTS & STUDENTS
“I took ACT lessons from Meeraj over July and August and took the September ACT. My composite score was a 35: English 36, Mathematics 35, Reading 34, Science 36. I really cannot thank Meeraj enough for all his tips, strategies, and encouragement. With his advice and lots and lots of practice, I raised my composite ACT score from a 29 to a 35 in just shy of 2 months. In particular, my ACT Reading and Science sections grew from 24 to 34 and 26 to 36 respectively. I'm very grateful for all of his help!” ~ Maggie Wang

“Meeraj tutored me for the ACT and SAT tests, and was definitely a key factor in helping me get a 1520 and 35, respectively. He gave me excellent advice on the reading/english sections, helping me get perfect scores on them for both tests. Since math is a weak spot for me, he helped considerably by giving me useful calculator programs and tips for some key questions. He was very professional during our meetings, and was very accommodating, offering to have Skype sessions if I was unable to come in…” ~ Jeremy Lister

GRE,

GRE

For over 10 years, I have taught and tutored for standardized tests for the SAT and ACT, of which the GRE (and its sister, the GMAT) are often referred to as "harder versions". I scored in the 99th percentile when I took the GRE myself, and have helped many GRE students attain their best scores. ***NOTE: The number of hours I have tutored for the GRE on Wyzant is only a VERY small portion of my total hours tutoring for this test.*** Whether it is the Verbal section or the Quantitative section that gives you the most difficulty, I have developed finely tuned techniques for each question type and the most lucid, relevant explanations of each concept on the market. My teaching style is content-based, NOT gimmick-based: you can expect to learn lots of challenging content in a surprisingly clear and accessible way. Past students have improved by anywhere from 4 - 20 points on the revised test with top scores on the AWA (essay) section.

ACT English,

ACT English

The ACT English section is actually the easiest of the 4 ACT sections on which to improve your score. For the ACT English section (commonly referred to as the "grammar" section), I teach students how to use visual clues in both the passage and the answers to 1.) identify the grammatical topic or stylistic consideration being tested and 2.) recruit from memory and apply the correct information to answer the question. My students learn to rapidly and easily eliminate wrong answers and recognize the most commonly tested types of grammatical errors. Many of them report learning things "they never knew" about the rudiments of grammar and punctuation, and find their performance and confidence improve drastically! Numerous students have achieved perfect 36's and many more have scored in the 33 - 35 range. A large number of them have reported that these increases were "more rapidly attained" and "far superior" to what they got when working with my competition. ***NOTE: The number of hours I have tutored for the ACT on Wyzant is only a VERY small portion of my total hours tutoring for this test. I can also provide you with many more reviews and testimonials than you will see here upon our first meeting.***
ACT Reading,

ACT Reading

For the ACT Reading section, I have developed a highly effective and innovative 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! I have developed finely tuned methods for dealing with different aspects of the test experience, including timing/pacing, skimming passages for details, determining the main idea, and more. I have also 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. Used correctly my methods will save a great deal of time and energy when taking the ACT Reading section. Many students have improved their Reading Score by anywhere from 3 - 10 points and there have been many perfect 36's. A large number of them have reported that these increases were "more rapidly attained" and "far superior" to what they got when working with my competition. ***NOTE: The number of hours I have tutored for the ACT on Wyzant is only a VERY small portion of my total hours tutoring for this test.

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.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

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, been invited by even more to develop their curriculum, teach classes, and even train their staff. Most importantly, I have retained the best material for my own students as I 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 and how to apply them to the SAT. As a result, I have had numerous success stories including several perfect 800 students. A large number of them have reported that these increases were "more rapidly attained" and "far superior" to what they got when working with my competition. ***NOTE: The number of hours I have tutored for the SAT on Wyzant is only a VERY small portion of my total hours tutoring for this test.

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.
Writing,

Writing

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.

Science

ACT Science,

ACT Science

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. In addition, I also help students fine-tune specific skills and applications such as extrapolating and interpolating for data, identifying trends, and much, much more. Numerous students have achieved perfect 36's and many more have scored in the 33 - 35 range. A large number of them have reported that these increases were "more rapidly attained" and "far superior" to what they got when working with my competition. ***NOTE: The number of hours I have tutored for the ACT on Wyzant is only a VERY small portion of my total hours tutoring for this test. I can also provide you with many more reviews and testimonials than you will see here upon our first meeting.***
Anatomy,

Anatomy

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".
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.

Physiology

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.

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.

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.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

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, been invited by even more to develop their curriculum, teach classes, and even train their staff. Most importantly, I have retained the best material for my own students as I 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 and how to apply them to the SAT. As a result, I have had numerous success stories including several perfect 800 students. A large number of them have reported that these increases were "more rapidly attained" and "far superior" to what they got when working with my competition. ***NOTE: The number of hours I have tutored for the SAT on Wyzant is only a VERY small portion of my total hours tutoring for this test.

Test Preparation

ACT English,

ACT English

The ACT English section is actually the easiest of the 4 ACT sections on which to improve your score. For the ACT English section (commonly referred to as the "grammar" section), I teach students how to use visual clues in both the passage and the answers to 1.) identify the grammatical topic or stylistic consideration being tested and 2.) recruit from memory and apply the correct information to answer the question. My students learn to rapidly and easily eliminate wrong answers and recognize the most commonly tested types of grammatical errors. Many of them report learning things "they never knew" about the rudiments of grammar and punctuation, and find their performance and confidence improve drastically! Numerous students have achieved perfect 36's and many more have scored in the 33 - 35 range. A large number of them have reported that these increases were "more rapidly attained" and "far superior" to what they got when working with my competition. ***NOTE: The number of hours I have tutored for the ACT on Wyzant is only a VERY small portion of my total hours tutoring for this test.

ACT Reading,

ACT Reading

For the ACT Reading section, I have developed a highly effective and innovative 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! I have developed finely tuned methods for dealing with different aspects of the test experience, including timing/pacing, skimming passages for details, determining the main idea, and more. I have also 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. Used correctly my methods will save a great deal of time and energy when taking the ACT Reading section. Many students have improved their Reading Score by anywhere from 3 - 10 points and there have been many perfect 36's. A large number of them have reported that these increases were "more rapidly attained" and "far superior" to what they got when working with my competition. ***NOTE: The number of hours I have tutored for the ACT on Wyzant is only a VERY small portion of my total hours tutoring for this test.

GRE,

GRE

For over 10 years, I have taught and tutored for standardized tests for the SAT and ACT, of which the GRE (and its sister, the GMAT) are often referred to as "harder versions". I scored in the 99th percentile when I took the GRE myself, and have helped many GRE students attain their best scores. ***NOTE: The number of hours I have tutored for the GRE on Wyzant is only a VERY small portion of my total hours tutoring for this test.*** Whether it is the Verbal section or the Quantitative section that gives you the most difficulty, I have developed finely tuned techniques for each question type and the most lucid, relevant explanations of each concept on the market. My teaching style is content-based, NOT gimmick-based: you can expect to learn lots of challenging content in a surprisingly clear and accessible way. Past students have improved by anywhere from 4 - 20 points on the revised test with top scores on the AWA (essay) section.

Impressive SAT tutor

I chose Meeraj to be my son's SAT tutor based largely on reviews. And I must say he more than met my expectations. After tutoring for 8 1 hour sessions, 1 hour a week with assigned homework/ practice tests, my son scored over 1500 on his December SATs ( which is over 99th percentile) on his first try. The practice was focused on reading and grammar which were my son's weaker areas. Even after their first hour together, my son said he already learned some new reading strategies that could have helped him on his PSAT had we started a couple of weeks ago. I was impressed as my son tends to be a bit skeptical. I also felt that my son started being more serious about the upcoming SATS after spending time with Meeraj. I recommend Meeraj very highly. Best money I ever spent on my child's education.

Olga, 9 lessons with Meeraj

Strongly Recommended!

My son is a high achieving student, and we wanted to make sure his SAT score reflected his potential to colleges. He took 5 lessons with Meeraj - 2 Grammar, 2 Reading, and 1 Math - and scored a 1560 out of 1600 on his SAT. I am very pleased with the result, and I strongly recommend using Meeraj's support and guidance to help your child reach their potential!

Very professional ACT tutor

My daughter is in her junior year in high school and we planned for her to take the October ACT. She started out with a 28 on her first full-length ACT, but she wanted a much higher score. She met with Meeraj for an hour once a week every week starting at the end of August and leading into the October test. From the very first meeting, she felt that she got a lot out of each lesson and responded well to his strategies. Meeraj also was very professional and started the lessons immediately. He always assigned homework which targeted specific type of questions that she struggled with. With the help of Meeraj’s tutoring, she improved by 11 points on the English section and by 5 points on each of the other sections on the October ACT. This raised her overall score by a total of 6 points from a 28/36 to a 34/36, placing her in the 99th percentile. My daughter and I were very pleased with the result. She plans to take the ACT one more time in February (just to see if she can improve by another point or so), and we will definitely be reaching out to Meeraj again!

Rubina, 10 lessons with Meeraj

This is the one

We have tried several English tutors in the past: local, remote, friend recommendation, web recommendation. My child was never impressed or motivated. I don’t know what magic Meerag plays in his first two lessons, she finally said he is great and would expect his class. Couldn’t be happier.

Super Knowledgable, Kind, and Responsive Tutor!

Meeraj has been tutoring me for the GRE General Test for over two months now. Thanks to him I'm in the target GRE range for my speech-pathology graduate programs! He knows the "ins and outs" of this test, provides practice materials, and shares foolproof strategies for each of these topics! He helped me arrange a study plan according to my test date, listened to my needs, and checked in with me if some time had gone since our last session. It was great that he gave me homework because that motivated me to practice. I'm not sure how much practice I would have done on my own if I hadn't had him as a tutor. I heard about Wyzant through a family friend and found his profile, which I was very impressed with. I previously went to an academic tutoring center near my town, but was overall unimpressed by their lack of knowledge of the GRE and their teaching style. I wanted one tutor who could tutor me in each of the areas: quantitative, verbal, and writing. Meeraj can do it all! His strategies are KEY!! I tried learning with various apps and books on my own but nothing compares to having a qualified tutor in front of you(r screen) explaining tips/tricks/problem areas. I really appreciate that he cares about his students, tailors lessons to their needs, and answers texts/emails promptly! He had great flexibility in scheduling lesson times and I loved the convenience of our lessons being online! (I didn't feel like the virtuality of our lessons ever compromised my learning.) I definitely recommend Meeraj for his overall subject knowledge, test knowledge, caring personality, fantastic strategies, and finesse in teaching through Wyzant's online platform. Fantastic rate for all of you get!

Incredible, Patient and Knowledgeable Tutor

Met with Meeraj to review SAT reading comprehension. He was very efficient and jumped right into the work. He knew what he was talking about and showed tips and tricks and how to approach a comprehension question. He was very patient and helpful and was able to give many useful strategies for how to answer the question correctly. Awesome tutor. Highly recommend!

Personalized, Strength Seeking, Weakness Attacking Tutor

I'm heading into my senior year and Meeraj has tutored me in the SAT since February 2017. Meeraj helped me greatly. In my first attempt I scored 670 on English and 770 on Math. Meeraj's lessons are completely personalized. He found my strengths ,and focused on those initially. Once I mastered what I was good at, Meeraj attacked my weaknesses. He's helped me greatly and upped my chances of gaining acceptance into a Tier 1 school. I'm taking the SAT a final time in August and fully expect my English score to improve. A 1500+ is in sight.

Great first lesson

My son is preparing for his first standardized test , we were very lost with the approach . We got books but did not know the strategy to follow . Meeraj put us at ease at the first meeting. He knows what needs to be done .

Surdeep, 4 lessons with Meeraj

Helped raise GRE scores!

Meeraj helped me prepare for the GRE's and without his strategies, planning, study tips, and coaching I would not have been able to increase my GRE scores for both quantitative and verbal parts of the test. I came to Meeraj with very little confidence on how to tackle such an important exam and with very limited time to prepare for my following exam. Through his coaching I was able to come out of 5 weeks of tutoring with more confidence and knowledge about how to pace myself and tackle certain problems. Without these GRE strategies I would not have been able to obtain the 5-7 point increase I needed to apply to the graduate school programs I intended on applying to for a Masters in Speech Pathology. With Meeraj's help, the process of applying to grad school has become less of a burden because of the GRE score requirement for most schools. Currently I am waiting to hear back from programs such as Montclair, Temple, Columbia, and Adelphi University and none of that would have been possible without out Meeraj's help!
