About this tutor

About me: I am a student at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles). I have 3 years of experience in English tutoring. I have received a 800 (perfect score) in SAT English and Writing and I have received a 5 (a perfect score) in AP English Language and Composition which is college-level English.

I am eager to help students who need extra help in reading, writing, and grammar skills. I plan to assess the student's weaknesses and strengths in order to target specific skills. I had to learn English after I moved to the United States so I understand the struggle of learning English as a second language.

English is the language of the world and it has the incredible ability to connect people from entirely different backgrounds. I truly believe that there is so much to discover when learning English whether you are a new learner or whether you already speak it and you are passionate to discover more. It can be a frustrating process, but I will be there with you every step of the way. I truly believe that patience is key and I more than willing to support you in your journey. Thank you for considering me!

  • Anjali V.

    My daughter (age 5) was tutored by Chinmayee for the past 10 months. She is more confident in studying english in school. English is not her first language but Chinmayee was still able to help her.

  • Ram C.

    I enjoyed being a student with Chinmayee. Before I came here, I struggled to write work-related emails and often felt that I couldn't convey my thoughts properly. Her teaching process challenged me but it never felt overwhelming. I would recommend her to anyone!



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When working with a new student, the most important thing to me is to understand their comfort level with the language itself and what they are interested in improving and learning. I will spend time with you to understand exactly what you want to learn during our sessions. Even if you do not have a clear picture, I will guide you along the way. I will provide a test in order to determine your skills and weak points. In each tutoring session, I will work on one facet of English such as literature, grammar, or writing. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge 25 dollars per hour as a standard rate. However, I believe that my price should fit the needs and the pace of the students themselves. Please reach out to me as I am willing to change the price if the situation calls for it. 


How did you get started teaching?

I started tutoring as a volunteer at my high school. I love seeing the spark in my student's eyes as they understand something that frustrated them before. It is the most rewarding thing for me. I truly believe that anyone can learn English and I hope to help as many people as I can. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with many different students from adults to elementary through high school students. I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all method so I tailor my tutoring for the specific student. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would tell the student to look for a teacher who is willing to be patient yet simultaneously challenges them and pushes them out of their comfort zone. Learning a language is a difficult process as language is extremely nuanced and is constantly changing. However, with the right teacher, there is much to discover. There is no one-way-fits-all method to learning English, so please choose a teacher that is willing to customize and work for you specficially. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Please consider the following questions: 

1. What specific skills I am looking to improve upon? (i.e. reading, writing, grammar)

2. How will my English be used in my daily life? Am I using it for school, for work, or for my own enjoyment?

3. How should I prepare for each session?
