About Darshan

I current;y attend medical school at Edward Via - Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine and graduated from Temple University in December 2013 with a BS in Biology and a Distinction in Biology Research. In my free time I enjoy tutoring and helping kids, teenagers, and young adults succeed in their own passions! I was a tutor at Temple University and I was a tennis instructor for players of all ages.

I scored a 2140 on my SATs (800 Math, 720 Writing, 620 Reading) and an 800 on SAT II Math Subject Test. In high school, I passed both AP Calculus AB and BC exams with a score of 4 or greater.

As a medical student, I am fine-tuned in the sciences. I have taken Biochemistry, Anatomy, Immunology, Genetics, and Microbiology just to name a few.

I was a three-year Varsity tennis player at High School and was the co-captain my senior year. I also went on to win the Most Valuable Player award my senior year. I am not the typical tennis instructor. I will make you work but have fun doing it.

I am not the typical teacher. I always look for fun and engaging ways to attain success in any endeavor. "I can tell you where to look but not what to see. I can give you wings but can't teach you to fly." Please contact me if you would like a fun tutor who is serious about success!

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.

Basketball

I have played basketball since the age of seven, recreationally, for the community, and for my middle school team. I played as a shooting guard/small forward. I am exceptionally experienced at ball handling (dribbling) and quickness on the court, which aids during any part of basketball.

College Counseling

At Temple University, I was the Biology Department's Student Advisor & Ombudsman. I would counsel my peers to help with their future careers and advise them in many situations. I also was a mediator when grievances were filed in the department.

I am a sprinter and hurdler that ran for High School. I was the fastest freshman on the team and was selected to run in the Penn Relays. I am very much aware of the techniques needed to be a successful runner.
