In the long-term, I aspire to teach science at the university level, alongside conducting scientific research.

I hold a PhD in Neuroscience from Brown University. I have had prior teaching experience in Science, Math and English, whether as a tutor with a test prep organization or as a teaching assistant in college. In the long-term, I aspire to teach science at the university level, alongside conducting scientific research. Needless to say I've always greatly enjoyed the experience of teaching, and it never gets tiring. I take great delight in making the subject at hand understandable to the student through the use of lucid explanations and simplifying analogies. I believe that the process of teaching can be as instructive to me as to the student. Therein lies my strongest motivation to teach, in addition of course to the realization that a proper education can greatly enhance the quality of one's life.

GMAT

I worked as a tutor for Kaplan for nearly two years and acquired plenty of experience tutoring for the GMAT. In addition to teaching multiple students at once in a classroom setting, I also provided one-on-one tutoring to several students who went on to be accepted into various highly competitive business schools. Having taught a variety of other standardized tests besides the GMAT (such as GRE, LSAT) I have become intimately familiar with the format of most major standardized tests. Over the years I picked up several problem-solving strategies, which can be immensely helpful for improving grades on the GMAT.
GRE

GRE

In addition to scoring really well on the GRE when I took it, I have two years of experience tutoring for this test (with Kaplan) along with several other major standardized tests (GMAT, LSAT, etc). I am intimately familiar with the format of these various tests, and over the years, I have picked up several problem-solving strategies that maximize performance on these tests. Surely, anyone taking the GRE can benefit from applying these strategies.

Needless to say, I take writing seriously, and over the years, I have accrued a great deal of experience in thinking critically and writing effectively. I feel certain that by channeling my experience I can help students greatly improve their writing abilities.

Patient and knowledgeable tutor

We had our first session with Avinash and he worked with my 9th grader on English. My son was really happy with the session. He said the time flew by. Avinash was patient and integrated many aspects into the session from vocab to writing. Looking forward to continue working with him.

Kavita, 1 lesson with Avinash

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Avinash taught my 15-year old Physics. My son really enjoyed working with him as he said he was able to explain the concepts in a different way. We will definitely call him again for future tutoring and for test preps. I strongly recommend him.

Ana, 5 lessons with Avinash

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

Avenish is tutoring and preparing my son to take the SAT- math. He is a great teacher! My son says that he explains difficult math concepts so that he easily understands them. We're excited to be working with him!

Wendell, 2 lessons with Avinash

Very knowledgeable

Avinash helped my son on his Research. After discussing with Avinash in various topics my son was able to select one from his list of his interest. Avinash is very knowledgeable and my son was very comfortable with him.

Sujata, 2 lessons with Avinash

Most Highly Recommended

In the first session Avinash very quickly diagnosed the reason why my 11th grader was performing poorly (C's and D's) in his advanced molecular genetics course - he had a knowledge gap in biology and chemistry that were building blocks for this advanced molecular genetics course. Within two 2-hour sessions, Avinash very methodically filled in this gap by ensuring my son not only knew the necessary concepts but also how they fit together in a broader framework. After the first session, my son said Avinash was the best tutor that he had ever had. My son's next four grades after the tutoring began were 85, 95, 100, and 95. With just 1/4 of the quarter left, Avinash helped my son improve by a full letter grade. We will continue to use Avinash throughout the year and I fully expect my son to get A's from here on out.
