Let me start out with a little about myself. I grew up in the Chicagoland area and am a product of the public school system from ages 4-17. I graduated from Prospect High School in Mount Prospect. While there I was a member of the tennis team, soccer team, math team, chess team, debate team, National Honor Society and an Illinois State Scholar. I went on to college at the University of Illinois and then medical school.
The reason that I tutor is that I love helping people learn things. I believe we are all continually learning. The key, however, is to somehow make it interesting. I realize some things are particularly dry or boring, and not all subjects are appealing to everyone. The basis of success in our society, however, is premised on education and hard work. So sometimes we have to muddle through some subjects that just aren't that thrilling. Other times we just want to know as much as we possibly can about a subject because we are extremely interested. Either way, I hope that I can be of service to you or your child.
I have tutored a wide age group of students ranging from elementary school students through medical school students. My goal in tutoring is to enable a way of thinking and understanding so that, when faced with a similar situation in the future, the student will be able to tackle the issue on their own. Sometimes this isn't as quick a remedy as solving the problem for the student. I feel, however, that this approach will better serve the student in the long run. Learning a thought process and cultivating good habits - both mechanical and intellectual - are very important for long term success.
I will not do any student's homework for him/her while he/she simply watches. My goal is to enable the student to have the skills and confidence to eventually no longer need my services. That can not be accomplished if I keep spoon feeding them the answers. There has to be a willingness on the part of the student to learn. What I can do is to make it easy to understand and learn.
We will outline your goals and timetable from the onset. It is my intent that our efforts will result in meeting or exceeding them. I hope you will give me the opportunity to help you or your child with their educational aspirations. Hello!

For a short concentrated period of time for test prep---i.e. 2-4 weeks / 3-4 days per week / 3-4 hours per day----I would be willing to negotiate on the rate.
Ajit is making math fun for me at the age of 41; well not really fun, but attainable. Ajit is helping me fire-up my brain as I prepare to start an MBA program in a couple of weeks. He has been able to convince me that I can do Algebra again and has a way of explaining things plain English. He is very patient and practical and doesn't seem to get too frustrated with me.
Ajit tutored my son for ACT. He is very patient, knowledgeable, and reliable. My son felt very comfortable with his teaching approach. We are glad that we found him. I strongly suggest Ajit to anyone who is looking for a tutor.
Ajit is a top-notch math tutor. He has a comprehensive understanding of the ACT math testing. Ajit motivated my daughter to study/practice math problems that she would have avoided without his guidance. We are hoping her math score improves drastically.
THE BEST! I really had no confidence in the GMAT, but he made our sessions worth while. Ajit is very helpful and has a good sense of humor. He has his own creative way of teaching not limited by bureaucratic standards. Very respectful and interesting tutor; truly enjoys what he does. "You get from education how much you put in it," is one of my favorite quotes by him. You would be lucky to have Ajit as a tutor.
Ajit really knows his math. He is very patient which I appreciate as I am an older student trying to re-learn algebra. I highly recommend him.
Ajit had helped me a lot with my studying for GMAT. His support, enthusiasm and patience were tremendous in my success. Ajit understands challenges that adult students face and tries to come up with new methods of studying. Ajit was a great tutor for me and great source of knowledge regarding overall structure of the test, topics for the essays and admission process.
Ajit has been great in helping me prepare for the GMAT testing. I always have had trouble with math and with Ajit's help I have been making great progress towards my goals.
Ajit is wonderful. My daughter, who is very picky, loves him! He is very patient, knowledgeable, personable and prompt. I have found it very easy to communicate with him. He always returns my calls in a timely manner. We are very lucky to have found him.
We are very excited to have found Ajit. He is not only punctual, he makes great assessment of what the needs are and accordingly spends time on the areas of weakness. He lays out the plan for achieving the goals and follows through. Our son is always very excited to start the learning session and has very high energy and spirit after the learning session. Besides being a great tutor, I think Ajit becomes a great mentor for his students.
We have only been working with Ajit for five weeks, but have already seen a great deal of improvement in our daughters Science Scores - two A's on two tests. Thanks for making a tough subject matter easy to understand and comprehend.
He was a very good tutor! I learned new ways to solve some problems and I'm glad he helps me a lot.
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.
