I am a graduate of U.C. Berkeley, C.U. Boulder and C.U. Denver. I hold an M.A. in philosophy, a Post B.A. in secondary mathematics, a B.A. in philosophy and a B.S. in premedical studies.
I moved from Bucharest, Romania to the U. S. in 1988. For the next four years I took English as well as general education classes at Los Angeles City College where I also enjoyed tutoring physically handicapped students. Several years later I was a certified mathematics teacher working with struggling inner city students in the Denver metro area. In the evenings I taught adults at two private Universities. My teaching philosophy has always been based on the belief that true learning stems from an inner curiosity to know. Instilling such curiosity in my pupils is what still permeates my teaching style.
Besides studying to gain admission into the Medical school of my choice or into one of the certified anesthesiologist assistant programs, I enjoy cooking, attending cultural events at my local church, hiking and/or salsa dancing.

What transpired throughout my career was that my infectious enthusiasm for knowledge, learning, and teaching not only kept students engaged but piqued and deepened their interest in the subject matter at hand. Once thirst and joy for knowledge set in, nothing could stand in the way of their success.

Hello Dikshya,
I saw your request for a SAT prep tutor. I would be happy to help you succeed on this important test.
I am an experienced educator currently working with a variety of students in mathematics and sciences, as well as test preparation.
What transpires during my tutoring sessions is that my infectious enthusiasm for knowledge, learning, and teaching (be it a specific subject matter or test prep), not only keeps students engaged but piques and deepens their interest in the task at hand. Once thirst and joy for knowledge set in, nothing can stand in the way of their success.
If you're interested in working with me please feel free to contact me soon. I look forward to your reply. Thank you.





We're not looking for people who equate part-time hours with part-time effort. This is less about the number of hours you work and more about the heart you bring to that work. And that engagement will go both ways here. You'll have a dedicated manager who's committed to your success. You'll be treated like a valuable addition to our team, you'll be invited to our company holiday party, and you'll be considered for some of our most iconic annual awards. In fact, some of our most indispensable colleagues are part-timers who have found their place here and now thrive doing their very best work.

You'll work hard, often in the evenings and on weekends when students are available. And you'll also interact with parents who occasionally present you with customer service challenges. But you'll have the training and support of your home office, clientele who appreciate your contributions, and the satisfaction of knowing you're doing important work that helps kids get where they're hoping to go.

Who are we looking for?

First, a few basics. You'll need a four-year college degree and the ability to score in the required percentile for your chosen subjects:

ACT/SAT, Subject Tests, or AP exams: 99th percentile or above in selected subjects if you wish to tutor
Academic subjects: 95th percentile on the associated Subject Test(s)
GMAT and GRE tutors: 90th percentile
But grades, test scores, and degrees don't encapsulate tutors (or students). So here's a little more about the type of person who will thrive here.

We're looking for someone who makes work a way of life without making it your actual life. Someone who'd rather be challenged by something important than phone it in for something mundane. You want to commit to a calling that matters to you, and you have high expectations of yourself, your job, and your employer.
You believe that great teaching is an art, one that deserves to be nurtured, valued, and put to the best use in helping students.
You are very comfortable relating to teens while simultaneously presenting yourself as a professional to adults. You're astute, like a smarter, more responsible older brother or sister who remembers life as a teen but also knows the ropes around grown-ups.
You earn a reputation as someone who can be counted on. When you promise you'll show up, literally or figuratively, you always show up. And you don't need a list of policies to know you should be on time, prepared, and professional.
You believe that every student has potential and you relish the chance to help them discover it. When a student struggles or a lesson just isn't resonating, you see it not as a frustration that impedes your progress, but an opportunity to showcase your pedagogy.
You're comfortable flying solo but you also love lending a hand and being helpful to others. You enjoy success together with a team as much or even more than you do alone.
And most importantly, you believe in the vision of Collegewise. You want to be part of a smarter, saner approach to improving grades and test scores.
