About this tutor

I have been tutoring for several years now (1000+ hours) and really make an effort to personalize my efforts for each individual student. I try to never have more than 5-6 students at a time so that I can provide the best possible personalization of teaching to each student. For my volunteering-based SAT/ACT/math/reading tutoring efforts in Los Angeles, Order of the Laurel and the Palm, the highest honor accorded to undergraduates completing their programs of study.

Furthermore, being at a similar age to many of my students helps me relate to them a lot better than some older tutors can; I have more recent experience with taking the test and with taking the same courses as my students and this helps a lot in my tutoring personalization. 

I love being able to connect with students beyond the structured environment of most classrooms and tutoring/prep academies. I try to provide my students with just enough structure so that they know how to study, how to test, etc., but enough autonomy so that they can learn how to succeed on their own. 

Helping students navigate this fine line is really meaningful, as many of my students have reached out to me after starting college talking about how the study habits we built together were really helpful. This means a lot to me and I look forward to helping more students develop similarly powerful habits.

    Got help with college apps - Mihir had great and efficient methods to inspire unique answers for my essays. I had no idea where to start with these vague prompts. Mihir really helped me identify a story that actually resonated with me and was super helpful in every step of the college application process.

    Mihir has been tutoring me for about 2 months now for math and reading. Working with him has been so helpful in improving my ACT math score from a 24 to a 31 and my ACT reading score from a 25 to a 30, in just a couple months. I have ADHD so it is a little difficult for me to make my own study plans, but Mihir has helped so much with that. I definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a new tutor!
