I am a graduate student in Materials Science at UPenn, with extensive subject expertise in mathematics, physics, chemistry and statistics. I also have a year of professional experience working as a solar engineer.
I have depth of experience in these subjects, including teaching experience at the college level, but I choose to specialize in high school tutoring because I am great at translating complex ideas to teenage students as they are first exposed to them. I use a conversational learning approach, encouraging my students to think through problems out loud, give me feedback, and structure our lessons together.
I also believe in an integrated approach, often tutoring my students in multiple subjects as well as advising them on their career path and college applications. High school is a critical time where students first encounter challenge subjects as well as form an idea of their interests, and I enjoy making this process easier and more fulfilling for my students.
I have 6+ years experience tutoring high school students in various subjects (math, physics, chem), as well as AP exam prep (5 in AP English, Statistics and Chemistry) and SAT Subject prep (700+ in Physics, Chemistry and Math II).
I also have experience in coaching and advising students with college selection, applications, and major/program selection (past advisees have been accepted to UPenn, UCLA, Berkeley, CMU, etc).

Coming from a chemistry background, it was tough for me to grasp the concepts of Physics and Maths that were being taught in my class. Here's where Prashant helped me.He taught me all the basic concepts, he was patient, he knew where I would falter and guided me through all the pitfalls.
Also being new to this country, I was unsure of how universities worked here, he guided me through all the points that I need to keep in mind while selecting courses and with his help, I was able to tackle my studies without getting overwhelmed.
Prashant is an accessible teacher and takes tutoring seriously, with his caring attitude and a clear sense of purpose I would highly recommend him as your next tutor.
Having Prashant at my side while working on my college applications made the entire process so much smoother and easier. As someone who has previously experienced success in this field, he knew exactly how to help me best frame myself to universities, while still maintaining my individual voice. Prashant looked through each and every one of my supplements, from ones that were a few sentences to a 1000 word essay, offering feedback and very acute critiques. He guided me through resume building, essay structuring, and interview preparations. Without him, I genuinely don't think I could have gotten into top schools like UC Berkeley or UCLA. Look no further than Prashant when it comes to your college app needs!
In my freshman and sophomore years of high school, I had a good amount of trouble with understanding concepts of geometry and trigonometry. I started getting tutored by Prashant, and soon enough, I was getting A’s on every test and quiz! He was patient and kind to me, making sure I understood every problem and solving method. He showed thorough mastery of everything I was learning! I highly recommend him!
