Santhosh Tutoring Services
My name is Santhosh Rajendran and I'm currently a First-year at The University of Virginia. I am currently residing in my hometown of Essex, Vermont for the summer and until further notice from my school. My experience as a recent high school and middle school student can assist the student with learning on a more personable note. I have spent countless hours volunteering at the local library and even spent some time working as a Tutor at a tutoring center in Burlington.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
My typical process consists of me first getting to know the student and their work habits. By doing this, I get to understand what pace is healthy to move forward with. Then, I would try to understand the holes in the understanding of the material, regardless of what subject it is. From there, I would give practice problems to test their understanding of certain difficult topics.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have grown up in Essex Junction practically my whole life and with this, comes great teachers and educators. I've learned a lot about teaching from these individuals and have applied it with several opportunities. I first started at 14 by helping out tutoring at the local library. I set up a program and students would come in with problems or review that they would need help with. I then was looking for employment related to education so I inquired a tutoring agency in Burlington, Advantage Learning Center. I worked there as a tutor for Math, English, ACT, and the SAT for almost three years. At The University of Virginia, I will be a Teaching Assistant this upcoming semester.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I don't have a strict pricing plan. I am looking for $25/hour but this can always be modified depending on the student's needs.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with several different students. Certain students have had learning disabilities and have shined through greatly. Other students may be at the top of their class and are looking for an extra challenge.
