About Rohit

Introduction / Education:

I'm currently an undergraduate student at UT Dallas and used to attend STEM Academy through Berkner High School. I'm a huge movie-buff and an occasional gamer. 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 non-profit/education field helping motivate and assisting low-income high school students apply and transition into higher education. This is one of the reasons why I am majoring in Public Administration/Affairs and minoring in Sociology. Hopefully this private tutoring gig will help me get a few steps closer to achieving my goal and be a great learning experience for both the student and myself.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught students on many occasions in the past through both, formal and informal, positions. Currently I'm working 2 jobs, one where I assist in a college transition class and another where in the AVID program. Both of which help students reach the next level of their lives through higher education. This past summer I served through AmeriCorps at a local non-profit that helps children in downtown transition from high school to college and learn 21st Century Skills. I was also given the title of teaching assistant for my contributions that went above and beyond in my social statistics college class. I held weekly homework sessions, exam review sessions, and made myself available before and after class. Before that I was a group tutor for a general chemistry college class. This was also held once every week and before exams. I've also organized/led multiple study groups throughout the duration of high school and college in various classes. Outside of academia and work, I've volunteered to help assist in a basic computer and technology class for seniors during summer. Although I am fairly new to WyzAnt, I've been an independent private tutor for a couple of years prior to this shift.

Tutoring Feedback / Teaching Style:

All of the students that went to my various tutoring sessions thought it helped them greatly improve their grades and understanding of the material and can provide their feedback upon request via compiled excel document. I have taught students who range from middle school, all the way up to senior citizens and plenty in-between. I do my best to teach students as simple as possible and to help students get a good grasp on general 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 or 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 food and health costs. Also people often tell me I have a slight Texan accent when I speak since I was born and raised here. Don’t feel afraid to mention it if you’re curious cause it’s honestly just the way I grew up speaking at school and among my friends.

Personal Background / Work Ethic:

A little more personal information about me that explains what kind of person I am. I grew up in a very low-income family, contrary to the typically Asian family whose parents are engineers or doctors. My dad works as a flea marketer selling electronics and games while my mom works as a temporary employee through a staffing agency. I was never able to ask my parents for help on homework growing up since they didn't have the knowledge or education to do so. I spent most of my nights in high school trying to just get through the homework. Most of my peers only spent about 2 hours a day doing their homework, while I spent about 4 hours trying to do the same work. People often assumed when I was growing up that all the stuff we learned in high school and college just came easy to me and that was why I was able to make such high grades. However, people fail to realize that the reason I excel is because I put in the work to understand and master everything I chose to learn. Even though I was a slower learner than most my peers, I still gave it my all even if it meant spending more time doing math homework, leaving earlier in the morning so I could ask my teacher for help with writing an essay, or deciding to skip lunch at times so that I could keep up with the reading in my world history class. I could have easily cheated like many of my peers and even some of my friends, but I didn't and was still able to graduate high school with a perfect GPA of 4.0 and honors and am continuing to succeed throughout my attendance at college. So when I say I'm going to help you to the best of my abilities, I absolutely mean it.

Note on Cheating:

I've gotten 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. So don't even bother asking.

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.

ACT Math

I placed in the 93% percentile on the ACT exam. Currently I work as an education intern, helping students with ACT/SAT prep. I've also taken up to Calculus 1 and received A+ in that class and previous math classes. I've also tutored math students in the past, both as a group/private tutor and as a statistics TA.

Algebra 1

I've studied up to Calculus 1 and received an A+ in that and previous math classes. I've often tutored peers in basic Algebra when I was a TA for Statistics and during study groups for a Physics class. For many students it was their first time using math with variables in a while. Algebra is very widely used in multiple fields and with a little help, it can be really easy to learn as well.

College Counseling

Currently I work as a education intern helping with a college transition class and as an AVID tutor at the local high school. In the summer I worked at a non-profit that helps students transition from high school to college. I've helped students navigate the admissions process, study skills, involvement on campus, interacting with professors, and how to get that edge to succeed in college. In the past, I've also taken a college transition course in which I made an A+. Although college can be a very difficult process for any student, it can be an incredible learning experience.

General Computer

I've been using computers since I was about 7 years old. In the past, I've assisted with a basic computers class where I helped teach local community members. This can also be extended into mobile technology such as how to use an iPhone or iPad since I am very familiar with that technology. I can also help with the physical setup of new desktops/laptops since I've helped adult/senior students with that in the past as well.

Government & Politics

My major in college is Public Administration/Affairs, which is the study of the public sector: government and nonprofits. I've also led multiple study groups in various PA classes. All the participants thought it was very helpful in grasping the material. I found that once I went over the main concepts, the rest of the information could be more easily deduced by the participants. I received an A+ in all my major classes, in both core government classes, and an A+ in the high school government class, as well as extremely positive feedback from the study groups I've led in the past.

Microsoft Excel

I've been using Excel since I was about 12 years old and have become pretty comfortable using it. I've used it for statistic calculations and even built my own GPA calculator with individual grading inputs in my spare time during high school. The majority of people don't use Excel but after using it when I was a TA for a stats class and playing around with it in my spare time, I've gotten really familiar with showing others how to use Excel at beginner and intermediate levels.

Microsoft Outlook

I'm very familiar with using Microsoft Mail and their online Outlook program. I've been using their line of mail programs since I was about 12 years old. I've helped others with how to sign up and use their email in the past when I used to assist in a basic computers class in my local community.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I've been using PowerPoint since I was about 12 years old, mostly for college classes and high school projects that required us to present our material in front of the class. I'm pretty familiar with the program since I've built numerous presentations of all kinds in the past. This is also another program which I assisted others with when I used to help out in a basic computers class in my local community.

Microsoft Windows

I'm extremely familiar with Windows 7. I've been a user since its original release and still currently am. In the past, I've assisted with a basic computer class that covered this operating system. I'm also very familiar with the previous versions of Windows (Vista/XP), but those aren't in popular use anymore. I can also be of assistance in learning the basics of the new Windows 8 operating system.

Microsoft Word

I've been using Microsoft Word since I was about 12 years old, mostly for writing school papers as well as for building basic advertising flyers. This is another program that I also assisted with in a basic computer class within my local community. I'm very familiar with this program and use it quite often, so with a little help, it can be quite a useful tool to anyone.

Physical Science

I've taken multiple college level Physical Science classes such as: Contemporary Physics, Phenomena of Nature, & Oceanography. I've also taken an advanced high school class known as AP Physics B. In all these classes, I received an A+ as my final grade. In 2 of those classes, I've led study groups as well as helped multiple peers outside of those groups understand Physical Science/Physics material.


I tutored multiple students when I was a TA on a 1-on-1 and group basis because they didn't have the basic Algebra skills to succeed in the statistics class. After working with them and explaining the underlying concepts of Algebra in a simple manner, they were able to finally understand and eventually pass the class. I've also made an A+ in Calculus 1 and the classes preceding it. With a little help, Algebra can be a much easier topic than you might think.


I'm a college student so I frequently have to proofread my own work as well as a few of my peers on occasion. I've also helped a few high school seniors that I know with their project papers, mostly checking for grammar and word flow. It can be a bit time consuming, but they always found my critiques very helpful.

SAT Math

I received a 710 on the mathematics portion of the SAT, putting me at the 94th percentile compared to the average SAT student. I've also received an A+ in Calculus 1 and all previous math classes. I currently work as an education intern at a local high school helping students with SAT/ACT prep. I've also been a private tutor in math, a group tutor in chemistry and a statistics teaching assistant.


I have taken many sociology courses at the college level, to the extent I even decided to add it as my minor. As of now my minor GPA stands at a perfect 4.0 / 4.0. Subjects I have taken include Race & Ethnicity, Social Stratification, Immigrants & Immigration, among others including the Intro class. I have helped many friends understand these topics through multiple study groups I have had the pleasure of leading as well as helping some students on a one-on-one basis.
