Hi there! My name is Meghna and I have been tutoring kids in math, Spanish, and writing for over eight years. I began tutoring while I was still in high school and continued during my time as an undergraduate at Columbia University. At Columbia, I tutored through the Columbia University Tutoring and Translating Agency (CUTTA) and I was in charge of a group of students with whom I met once or twice a week to help with various math classes. I believe that there is a fundamental difference between having a skill and being able to teach that skill, and luckily I fit both categories. As the oldest of four children, I have been a mentor to others all my life and hence, tutoring is a huge passion of mine because the results are so tangible. I find tutoring to be incredibly rewarding, especially when students themselves see results from the help I am able to give. Contact me if you'd like to set up a session! Hi there!

I charge $75/hour for SAT tutoring, but for general tutoring, my rate is $60/hour.
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.
I held several internships during my time in college, and worked at a law firm after college where Microsoft Outlook was the email program that was utilized. I am familiar with all basic functions of the program, in addition to less standard applications. I also have experience introducing this program to those I have worked with who have been less knowledgeable on the program.
I have been using Microsoft Windows since I was a young child, throughout high school and college. I have specifically helped my grandmother learn how to use Windows, and am an expert with a vast knowledge of Windows shortcuts as well.
I started photographing when I was in high school, and learned how to process my own photographs in the darkroom. I switched to digital photography later on and continue today, working mostly in fashion and event photography. I am familiar with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom and I have taken classes at the International Center of Photography to hone these skills.
When I was a junior and senior in high school, I had the opportunity to tutor middle school students at my school in math. I switched from public school to private school when I was in sixth grade, and I found that the teaching methods I encountered during each experience were incredibly different from each other, though I was learning similar subject matter. (I was in the advanced program in public school, so when I switched to private school, much of the material was repeated to me at first). This difference in teaching methods helped me develop a greater understanding for the study of prealgebra because I came to learn the subject twice and was able to grasp the subject in two completely different ways.
I have recently been working with a few students who are preparing for the regents exam. In particular, I have been working with them to prepare for the math section of the exam which covers algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2, and trigonometry. I have tutored in each of these math topics since I was in high school and consequently I have a solid understanding of each of them.
I scored in the 99th percentile on the PSAT and was a National Merit Scholar.
Having scored a perfect 800 on the Writing section of the PSAT and a 760 on the Writing section of the SAT, I am confident about my skill set in SAT Writing. The SAT Writing section is all about grammar. I had a particularly strong grammar program in my high school, and even today I still use the notebook I wrote in during that class when I am editing my own writing or another student's writing. I also took two prep classes while I was in high school to prepare me for the section on the test, but most importantly, I have an inherent sense for how to teach kids the proper way to study for this section.
I am a singer/songwriter. I have been singing since I was a child, and picked up guitar when I was in middle school which facilitated my transition into songwriting. I am constantly writing and listening to new music, and singing is my true passion. Although I have transitioned into more electronic music lately, I still maintain roots in acoustic singer/songwriter music.
