About Anjali

I am a recent college graduate from Drexel University with a high GPA. I gained my bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences. Since I have had ample experience tutoring in the past, you as a student can expect high quality tutoring sessions from an individual who knows what they are doing. In the beginning I used to only help Biology students (ages 18-22) with their classwork in my college. As word of mouth spread, I expanded into volunteering and tutoring for other subjects such as Math, Physics and English within my college. Recently, I have expanded and I now tutor students from age 6-40 years online and in the West Philadelphia neighborhood.

Though all experiences have involved helping students learn to feel confident in their abilities, each circumstance has been different; as a result, I am quick to adapt to each student's needs, and you as my next potential student will be no different. I believe everyone has a different way of learning - some methods might be faster than others, and it does not mean that the method is necessarily better or worse. I analyze and understand the needs of my students and then appropriately modify each tutoring session to enable the best learning experience possible. I believe patience, enthusiasm, hard work, and respect are a very important part of any teacher-student relationship, and will strive to acquire the same values with you during sessions. You should feel assured there will be no negativity and no judgment when working with me, since there is neither need nor room in learning environments for either.

*Please note: As I do not have a car on campus, I would prefer holding lessons within 1 mile of University City. I prefer meeting in a public place or online tutoring. 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.

College Counseling

I was a student volunteer assisting the Admissions department of Drexel University for more than a year and a half, where I understood the valuable areas a college is looking at in an applicant. During my time in the Admissions department, I was in charge of incoming applications and doing the preliminary read of the applications.

Hindi

Hindi is a native language. I come from an Indian family and I have lived in India for 15 years of my life. While growing up, my parents made sure I have not one of those international children that hardly new the native language of their family. My mother has made sure any gaps that I had learning Hindi from my environment, she would fill those in. I am a proficient speaker, writer and reader of the Hindi language. Over the years, I have taught Hindi to my friends and younger brother as well. I know a simple translation of Hindi to English is not a viable method of teaching as the two languages do not share the same sentence structure. The best way to learn Hindi is by practice, by speaking only Hindi so that students can over time understand the content from context instead of translation (similar to methods used for ESL).

Study Skills

I am a very meticulous and detail orientated individual. In my school days, I have received several awards for being organized and have the best habits for studying. I have a natural talent to see how best to organize one's time and activities to make it most optimal for educational purposes. I believe writing everything down in calendar notebook is very important. In addition, the best way to devote time for a long term project is due split it into parts and do one part at a time. Any one who knows me can vouch for my study skills and my students will be no exceptions.

Tennis

I have been learning to play tennis since I was 5 years old. Now, after 17 years later, I have had experience playing Varsity Tennis for my High School and Club Tennis for my college. Over the years, my experience in the sport has enabled me to teach basic Tennis skills to my family and friends. I am confident I can teach individual students about the techniques of Tennis (including forehand, backhand, volley, serves) and hone the form of current Tennis players.

Angie is one of the greatest teachers I have had!

I was a student at Community College of Philadelphia and my past semester I was required to take pre-calculus 11 in order to gain my Associates Degree. I had to withdraw in the prior Fall semester due to poor grades. I needed help badly and I am so happy I stumbled upon Angie! She is extremely intelligent, kind, punctual and explains math thoroughly and simply to make it easy to understand. She ha
