About Vinayak

I've kept an excellent track record and rapport with students, expressing a can-be-done attitude toward any challenge. I've helped teens and adolescents prep for their SHSATs, ELA, SATs, ACTs, and TACHS exams, and helped them write essays and get into schools like Xavier, and Brooklyn Tech, Columbia, and Harvard. I've also worked with adult learners helping graduate students get a better understanding of cryptography and python. I've also had the opportunity to teach 8 year olds the game of Go!

My strategy is very simple: first, evaluate the unique challenges students are facing in their education. Second, identify what problems and questions they find most difficult and explore specifically why these questions are difficult. Third, customizes solutions to help them overcome those setbacks.

I have a knack for breaking down traditional hard-to-grasp concepts into more consumable real-world analogies. I believe it’s not enough just to know the right answer and emphasizes understanding the logic the question is designed to challenge. In this way, my students are prepared for all sorts of curveballs on their exams as well as in life.

Vinayak worked far longer than the one hour for which I've been charged. He stayed late, went the extra mile to look up questions he couldn't immediately answer, and sent detailed answers to them as well as a video on a procedural question I had. He could not have worked harder!
