About this tutor

I am a sophomore at California Polytechnic University, Pomona, completing a Biology major and Physiology minor. I love working with students anywhere from elementary school all the way to high school. Mainly, I find great joy in assisting students with their endeavor to achieve higher grades. I've worked as a tutor for the Irvine High School PTSA department and as an independent tutor for elementary school kids, and now I am open to starting private tutoring for K-12 students. 

I tutor for a wide variety of subjects, with my expertise being in English, History, and Biological Sciences. I have completed around 10 APs classes in the past and have prior experience of working with students in tutoring contexts. I also specialize in essay writing/editing skills and reading for children. In my free time, I am also available to teach Indian music lessons for beginners. I am currently available on Friday-Monday; please text me for times and further details.

    A warm and friendly tutor who genuinely cares about helping her students accomplish their dreams! She helped me get an A in AP Calc BC when I had a C! Super thankful!

    had Sravya tutor my daughter for Spanish 1. Found that my student felt much more confident using her homework help, and her grades increased too. She usually uses Quizlet as a great study tool. That helped my daughter a lot. The only thing is that she does not travel far as she is a college student, so we opted for online tutoring with her.



FAQs


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

It depends on the subject. Usually, I have a conversation with the parents about what their objective is from the tutoring sessions and what they feel is the struggle that their student is having with the material. After, I would have that same conversation with the student. This process helps me understand the gaps in knowledge but also the perception the student has on the material, as compared to how the parents are perceiving their students' struggles. Then, I would work with the student and begin observing them myself. After the session ends, I go over the positives, negatives, suggestions, and next time's material with the student and if needed, the parents. 


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

Always make sure you are looking for teachers that are comfortable with your struggles. Also, make sure that the tutor is open to actively helping you even outside of the few hours you are in a session. Establish a healthy relationship with your new tutor. 


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

I would make sure that the student is duly aware that they are in the right mindset to learn- it's really hard to help a student if they are not putting in the effort to grow. So, the first question would be "do I really need help in the subject or am I lacking the discipline to fix small issues?" 

It's okay if you are lacking the discipline, as that is where I step in, as a tutor, to help fix your lack of motivation. And, if it isn't a matter of discipline, we can always work on the subject matter. 

Also, students should ask themselves about their level of comfort and be open with the teachers. I wouldn't be upset if a student shared their concerns with my teaching. They should ask if they are willing to have an open conversation with their tutor. It becomes easier to target needs if a level of comfort has been established.
