About Pranjal

I graduated in the top 5% of my class from a Pennsylvania high school in 2017, and I'm now pursuing a computer science degree at UT Dallas. I'm a National Merit Scholar, and I'm also a part of UTD's honors program. I believe in teaching the theory behind concepts along with concepts themselves. I like this approach because it allows students to very easily expand their knowledge beyond what they know already, especially in topics like math and computer science. For example, knowing the core concepts behind computer programming, rather than knowing a specific programming language, makes it much easier to learn new programming languages.

I enjoy tutoring because I am a constant learner, and I feel that teaching a concept is one of the best ways to gain an even deeper understanding of it. I also enjoy helping people, so I'm a natural fit for tutoring.

I have always been an excellent math student, earning a 5 on my AP Calculus AB exam, with an extremely high overall grade throughout the class. This performance has been consistent with my past math courses, where I have always earned A+ grades.

After finishing AP Calculus in my junior year, I was invited to tutor current students after school. I gladly accepted and have worked with numerous students from my high school on AP Calculus topics. Along with my AP Calculus tutoring experience, I tutored underprivileged members of my community in Pennsylvania through a community center.

I've been programming since a young age. I was first introduced to computer science via Scratch, an MIT Media Labs production, when I was in fifth grade. My love for computer science has blossomed since then. I began making iPhone apps when I was 11, and one of my more recent apps was even accepted into Facebook's FBStart Accelerator program, where I received mentorship and resources from Facebook's marketing and product development teams.

I'm always readily available via email, so feel free to reach out anytime. I look forward to working with 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.

Algebra 2

I have extensive experience tutoring late middle and early high school students in math that goes from Algebra 1 up until Calculus, and I've also tutored my classmates in the subjects over the years. I'm currently enrolled in a computer science degree at the University of Texas at Dallas, where I am taking math classes in calculus and linear algebra.

C++

I've been writing C++ code for 3 years. I've written C++ code to create cross platform functionality on my mobile apps. In addition, I've worked extensively with graphics technologies like Metal and OpenGL ES on mobile platforms. Finally, I've succeeded in my C++ coursework at UT Dallas, where I'm currently a computer science student.

Computer Science

I got a 5 on the AP Computer Science A exam, and I've also been programming for several years. I've written programming tutorials on the Swift Language, where I covered high level language concepts such as the type system, protocol extensions, value vs. reference types, and more. In addition, I've created and launched 2 iPhone apps, one of which was accepted into Facebook's FBStart accelerator program, where I was able to work with Facebook's product design and marketing teams to enhance my app.

Swift

I've been working with Swift since it launched. Since then, I've released a series of programming tutorials via appcoda.com, which can be easily viewed at this link: https://www.appcoda.com/author/pranjalsatija/. At AppCoda, I've talked about Swift as both an iOS programming language, and as an agnostic one. I've covered topics like the Swift type system, protocols and protocol extensions, higher order functions, and more. In addition, I've released an app called ephemera, which allowed its users to share encrypted photos and videos.
