About Ashwin

Hi, I am an Education Consultant and a resident physician at Stony Brook University Hospital. Simply, I hope to help students with test prep, application review, as well as interview prep in my spare time.

I have been part of many application committees for undergraduate and graduate programs at Stony Brook. Specifically the combined B.S./M.D. program. This has given me an unparalleled perspective into the admissions process and how to create the most effective application and personal statement. I have also tutored many Science and English courses in high school, in college, and in medical school.

In detail, I have tutored the following courses at Stony Brook University as a paid teaching assistant: Undergraduate Biochemistry, Physics for Life Sciences, Organic Chemistry, and 20th Century Literature. I have also worked as a Student Athlete Mentor and Tutor as well as a Tutor for the Student Government's PASS Tutoring program, helping students build good study habits and balancing their busy schedules. I lectured on the fundamental concepts of biochemistry such as metabolic pathways and enzyme kinetics, worked closely with students in small groups weekly, assisted students individually and in study-groups, and held weekly workshops, daily office hours, and organized large scale review sessions before exams.

Currently I am working as a resident physician at Stony Brook for 1 year before transitioning to Weill Cornell Medical Center; as a result my hourly rate will vary depending on my duty hours available. Please contact me via text/email for any questions. Thank you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

As a physician going into Neurology, I have experience with ADD patients. Specifically, adults and children in the office/hospital setting. Additionally, I have worked with many students with special needs as an undergraduate tutor through Stony Brook University's PASS Tutoring Program.

I have found the best way to help most ADD students stay on track is to study with them in the environment that is best for them and to move at the rapid pace they want to in a session but to repeat the key highlights three or four times during the session for sustained retention.

Basketball

I have been 6'3" since I was 14 years old and was naturally drawn into the world of basketball. It was not a natural sport for me, but with years of Varsity coaching at Jericho High School, I was able to learn the game and become an asset to my team. I continued to play at a recreational level in college and still do via Stony Brook's intramural leagues. Given my personal vast improvement in basketball with guidance and coaching, I believe I can help others do the same.

Public Speaking

As a physician-scientist, student-teacher, teaching assistant, student-investigator, and student-researcher, I have given many talks about my research, projects, or patients that I am caring for.

I regularly work with medical students junior to me, to help them develop public speaking skills so that they can effectively present patients at morning rounds and afternoon conferences.

The key to effective public speaking is confidence which naturally comes from mastery of the topic at hand and practice.
