About Rohit

Introduction / Education:

I graduated from UT Dallas last year with my Bachelor degree in Public Administration and am now working on my Master degree in Higher Education from UNT. I'm a huge movie-buff and occasional anime-watcher. I love listening to music every chance I get in between classes and homework. I've always been a straight-A student, excelling in subjects across the board. I want to eventually work in the college readiness and professional development field helping motivate and assisting low-income students apply and transition into higher education. This is one of the reasons why I decided to further my education in the specific field of higher education administration. I have tutored students in the past and I usually offer a very low-rate since I don't believe in overcharging people for knowledge.


Teaching Experience:

I have taught students on many occasions in the past through both, formal and informal, positions. Most of my experience centers around education, particularly with college readiness programs. Currently I am working at the university Career Center advising students on professional development, such as how to improve their resume, interviewing practice, and helping them think through their major and career decisions. I have also served for three years at a local nonprofit through AmeriCorps in Downtown Dallas that helps students transition from high school to college through the development of 21st Century Skills. During my undergraduate career, I also worked as a freshman seminar instructor at the local university and also as an AVID tutor at the local high school for about three years. Needless to say, I have had the unique opportunity of gaining a large breadth of experience within a relatively short time period.


Teaching Philosophy:

I have worked with students that have no idea where to begin to students that just need little bit of direction. I have taught students who range from middle school to senior citizens, but I mainly work with high school and college students. I do my best to teach students in a manner that is easy to understand and helps students get a good grasp on concepts that can help them now and in the future. I also don't charge a lot for my hourly fee compared to most tutors with similar and often less experience, since I don't believe in overcharging for knowledge and skills. I only use private tutoring as a means to help pay for my weekly food and medical expenses.


Note on Cheating:

I've gotten some inquiries relating to this in the past. If you ask me to take a graded test on your behalf or try to offer me extra money to cheat for you, I will decline. Don't even bother asking.

Thank you Jose. It was excellent being able to work with you. I hope that you were successful in your college classes and thank you for the positive feedback.

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.

Career Development

Currently employed at a university Career Center, which includes assisting students on a daily basis with creating and improving their resumes and cover letters, practicing for potential interviews, as well as guidance in academic and career advising. I have also hired multiple student employees and understand both what the process is like from the applicant and supervisor point of view. Prior to this position, I worked with a local nonprofit program through AmeriCorps, which included professionally developing students using lessons on resume writing, networking, public speaking, and conducting one-on-one practice interviews. Together with my experience and your drive to improve, I am confident that we can help you develop the vital skills needed in today's workforce.

College Counseling

Currently I am assisting with a summer bridge program that helps university students get a jumpstart on their freshman year of college by connecting them with various resources on campus and providing individualized advising on how they can improve as a college student. Prior to this position, I taught for multiple years in a college readiness program through AmeriCorps that helps students gain the skills to transition from high school to college, which included helping students understand the college application process, how to get involved on campus, the various resources available to students, the different types of financial aid, and professional development such as how to interact with professors or improving their public speaking skills. With more than 5+ years of college readiness and transition experience and having gone through the process myself, I am confident that together we can help you get that edge to succeed in college and beyond.

General Computer

In the past, I have assisted with a basic computers class where I taught local community members how to use a laptop and some of the many functions it can do. This can also be extended into understanding basic mobile technology such as how to use an iPhone or Android. I can also help with the physical setup of new desktops or laptops since I've helped adult and senior students with that as well. I have been using computers and technology since I was 7 years old and am very familiar with helping others understand how to better use technology. I am also very proficient with Microsoft Office programs since I use those on a daily basis and am more than happy to provide assistance with that as well.

Government & Politics

My undergraduate degree was in Public Administration, which is the study of the public sector including government branches and nonprofit organizations. During which, I graduated with the highest Latin honors and with a perfect GPA. I also had the opportunity to arrange and facilitate various study groups for different major and related courses. Outside of academia, I also have real world experience working in the nonprofit sector for a few years through AmeriCorps as well as having worked for the state government through a state university institution. Given my academic and professional experience with government, I am confident that together we can help you better understand your coursework and how the government operates in reality.

Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel for statistical calculations and even built my own customized GPA calculator with individual grading inputs in my spare time. I was a teaching assistance for statistics in the past and used Excel in some depth during my graduate coursework. Although Excel can seem like an intimidating tool, I am happy to be of help at both the beginner and intermediate level.

Microsoft Outlook

I'm very familiar with using Microsoft Outlook, both the everyday online version and the desktop program version, on a daily basis. I use the online version for personal use and the desktop program for professional use. There are multiple features within Outlook and it is a very convenient tool. Having used the program for multiple years, I would be happy to be of assistance in helping you understand how to use the Outlook program.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I am very familiar with Microsoft PowerPoint given the numerous presentations that I have built in the past for graduate coursework and workplace presentations. With my past experience as an educator and current position at the Career Center, I often use PowerPoint for my workshops and have helped multiple coworkers and students better understand how to use the program effectively and create presentations that are more professional and user friendly. Given my extensive experience creating and giving presentations, I am confident that together we can help you better understand PowerPoint and how to be a better presenter. I am also very familiar with public speaking and can provide advice on that as well.

Microsoft Windows

In the past, I have assisted with a basic computers class where I taught local community members how to use a Windows OS laptop and some of the many functions it can do. I have been using computers and technology since I was 7 years old and would be happy to help you better understand how to use Windows, including 7, 8, and 10.

Microsoft Word

I have been using Microsoft Word for personal, academic, and professional use. This includes creating documents, letters, essays, and even flyers. I'm very proficient with this program and use it on an almost daily basis. With a little assistance, I am confident that you too will find this program to be of great use to you.

Proofreading

As an educator, I have reviewed countless pieces of writing including academic essays, scholarship essays, resumes and cover letters, among other documents. In my current and past positions, I have proofread documents of some sort as part of my many roles. It is important that documents reflect you in the best way possible and having one that sounds professional and flows makes a significant difference. Whether it's your resume, an essay, or even an email inquiry, I am happy to be of assistance.

Public Speaking

I have given numerous academic presentations for graduate coursework and daily presentations during my experience as a nonprofit educator prior to that. In my current position in the Career Center, I have hosted multiple workshops and also advised students on various occasions on how they can improve their presentation skills. Given my multiple years of experience and personal journey improving my own public speaking skills over the years, I am confident that together we can help you improve your presentation and public communication skills that are necessary in today's workforce.
