About PORO


I'm working as an Associate Researcher at Mt. Sinai Hospital and love to teach. I love to each math, geometry, science, trigonometry, and algebra.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Neuroscience. Since the past six years I've been working on high level research in the field of Neuroscience, Psychology, and Psychiatry. I did three years of research in Nicotine Addiction and three years of research in Schizophrenia.

Through my last six years of research and work experience, I've had to take classes in different subjects to give me a better background to conduct my research. These subjects included math, geometry, trigonometry, neuroscience, chemistry, physics, biology, anatomy, etc. I've also taken my GRE and my GMAT, which have content specializing in math, English, and writing.

I worked as a private tutor and as a research assistant in college. As a private tutor, I taught various subjects (the ones I took classes in mentioned above) and as a research assistant I was responsible for training the students to get specialized in handling hardcore research. In doing so, I had to explain the basic concepts of science and math to the students. I worked as a private tutor and as a research assistant for three years in college.

So yes, I do have prior experience in teaching students. I love to teach students and help them to achieve their goals and their potential.

I have my own unique way of teaching students. I love to be organized and love to explain the materials to the students in the simplistic manner possible. I generally request the student to provide me with the materials or the subject content which needs to be taught nearly one week in advance. I go over my notes, prepare power point slides and print out the slides for the student. When I meet up with the student, I go over the PowerPoint slides and make sure that if the students needs to add any additional notes that might come up during the lesson, then he/she can write it down on the printouts which I hand out to the student. I generally start the lesson with a brief review of the previous lesson I taught him/her (if he/she had a previous lesson with me) and end the lesson with a small quiz with the subject matter I went over during the lesson. This complete approach helps the student to be attentive during the lesson and the student grasps the material faster.

In my teaching experience, I've always noticed that students have questions all the time and that it's very important for the student to find his/her instructor to be easily accessible. I am very accessible to my students. I give my students the freedom to ask me a questions related to their subject matter at any time. If they are running short on time, I don't even mind doing an online session with them. This really helps the students to resolve the questions in their mind in a very short time. Hence, they learn their material faster.

Teaching is my passion and I work round the clock to make sure that my students achieve their goal. So please feel free to contact me if you or your student want to achieve his/ her goal.

Hi Tanasha,

Thank you for writing a review. I first would like to say that I'm deeply saddened and shocked to see this review. I thought that we had a really good and professional parent-tutor relation. I wasn't expecting this at all and would like to clarify some points which you have mentioned above:

1) You do mention that I did a good job in tutoring your daughter; I really appreciate your kindness and I humbly accept it.

2) You go on to state that "I bugged you for a review and for you to share your contacts to me. After I referred him to many parents, he thanked me for all the people he received as clients".
This is completely false. I've never asked or requested you to write a review for me or even for you to share any of your contacts with me. You have never introduced me to anybody else and I've never asked you to. The tutoring sessions have been strictly professional and I've had no interaction with you outside the study session; except for the phone conversations between you and me for the scheduling of the two sessions that I taught your daughter.

3) You further mentioned that I "stood up your daughter twice". This is also completely false. If you check the WyzAnt system, there are no scheduled classes which I didn't attend.

4) Next you mentioned about me "using you for your contacts and not being passionate in helping your daughter"; this is again completely false.
If I've never asked you to introduce me to anyone and if I've never spoken to anyone whom you know, then how is it possible for me to use you for your contacts?
As far as being passionate about teaching your daughter is concerned, after every lesson that I taught your daughter, I wrote in detail about what I taught her. The fact that you say I did a 'good job' in teaching your daughter itself shows that I took interest in helping your daughter improve her grades and was passionate about teaching her.

5) The last point that I would like to
Mention is that it is of utmost
Importance for me to see to it that
My students do good in their respective subjects. You never scheduled a third lesson or told me to help your daughter for her finals. If at all you need my services as a tutor to help your daughter for her finals, then we can schedule a lesson asap to make sure that your daughter's grades don't get affected.

"Very patient"

Approved subjects

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.

ACT Math

I've good understanding of mathematics. I did a whole lot of math during my undergrad and for my GRE preparation. This gives me a good background to teach ACT math.

Algebra 1

I love Algebra. As you can tell from the qualifying test that I took (got 100% correct), I really understand the concepts of Algebra and love teaching it.

Algebra 2

I really love Algebra and love to teach its principles to students.


I took anatomy and physiology class in college. I also took the lab for the anatomy class back in college. I'm well adversed with the human anatomy and would love to teach it.

Disappointed — I worked with Poro twice for my daughter and although he did a good job. He nagged me for a review and for my contacts. After I referred him to many parents he thanked me for all the people that he received as clients. Now he has stood my daughter up twice without calling or even an apology! As we desperately look for a new tutor to help her prepare for her finals in high school I am clear this tu ...
