About this tutor

My career in Computer Science started when I was 11 years old, working with basic computer peripherals and then learning about applications. I started programming when I was 15. While I am in college majoring in Business and Computer Science, I developed a couple of open-source projects and tutored high school students the AP Computer Science in the past. I love teaching students to code and work with IT. We work together by understanding concepts and then learn to apply them practically. You'll learn skills that are actually useful (most services teach fancy concepts but are never used in the real world).

Because of my passion for Math, I have been tutoring since Middle School. This means I have experience working with students of all ages. My main goal is to facilitate students and teach them to use their cognitive abilities when working with problems. This way, they'll be more confident in tests and they won't "blank out."

While in school, I would travel to other schools and after-school programs to help students in their homework, prepare them for tests and build their confidence up for tests. Because it's important to note that it's the student that writes that test, not the tutor. I ran a club in high school that teaches how to tutor and perfect skills because I wanted to share my knowledge so others can tutor. 

Check out my profile and the different packages I offer! I look forward to working with you!

I love to learn more about my students. It's not students that learn something new every day but also their tutor. I love to work with students and be a team together rather than be a superior figure to them.

    He is so good at helping with understanding python, amazing.

    I’m 42 and I haven’t taken a math class since HS (1995). Abhi taught me algebra from scratch and tutored me through Algebra 121. There is no way I could’ve learned it on my own, let alone pass the class without him. He was available when I needed him and spent as much time as necessary, sometimes 3-4hrs a night. I highly recommend Abhi to anyone. Abhi is a math BEAST!

  • Abhinav Vemulapalli

    It was great, I was able to understand a lot of new Computer Science topics especially topics that I didn't understand like Polymorphism and so on. He also helped me a lot with specific Java coding which was great. Regarding math, he helped me understand why I got certain SAT Math problems wrong which was incredibly helpful because I could figure out where I needed to improve. Overall, great tutor!

  • Sahendra Reganta

    I like working with Abhi because he explains in full detail in any part of the subject. And he knows the subject thoroughly. I asked him a question and he explained it and also gave a great example. I would like to have more classes with him.

FAQs


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

The first session is a more relaxed session. I take the time to not only know more about my student but also see their mathematical/computer science abilities. From there I ask them what their main goal is in the subject and what will they need me for. Having them construct a goal will allow them to stay focused rather than come for an hour and work on anything. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have taken 4 years of math in high school and I am currently taking it in college, so I am still in touch with the subject. My past experiences gave me the insight to work better with students and I feel this is more crucial than ever.

Mentioned earlier, I have experience since I was 11. I made projects since then and tutored students in computer science for the past 4 years. 


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

For K-12 Math, I usually suggest an hour. I charge $60/hr

If you can't attend a session a 24-hour notice is required. 

A late notice - $50 fee

For Computer Science: I usually charge $75/hr. 

If it is a project/ assignment where a student needs temporary help, I do one of the following:
  1. Charge 100-300 dollars and they can spend as much time (no hourly limit) as they need with me (we can work the rates if needed). Note that this rate varies based on the help you need.
  2.  The student can buy hours from me. (an a la carte sort of thing)  $80/hour. They can divide the time however they need to and can schedule time with me beforehand. There is a cancellation fee. For instance, you can buy 2 hours (90 dollars in total) and you can divide that time to your needs. Say you want to have your first session be 20 minutes, you can schedule that time with me and we can have a video call for 20 minutes and work on whatever you like. You will then have 1 hour and 40 minutes left. Once hours run out, you can buy them again.

How did you get started teaching?

I started in middle school when I used my lunch time to teach my friends math. We would group together during lunch and I would help them in anything they find confusing. It helped them so much that they became more confident in tests. I wanted to help more people, so I continued to teach and tutor since then. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with elementary students in the beginning and then I have worked with Middle School Students and High School Students in recent years. I also prep college students in their courses as well.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I am a Boston Celtics Fan and I love playing the drums ;)


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

Find someone that can not only help you but someone you can connect with. Teachers are facilitators and mentors so find someone with a balance. 


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

Do you need tutoring? If so, why? What do you expect from your tutor?
