This is our team.

These tutors have been selected due to their outstanding academic performance, relentless ambition of career goals, and most importantly their ability to explain complicated subject matter in layman's terms.  

The only way peer-to-peer learning works is if it's done in an effective learning environment: these high-achieving students are the ones who ensure that this type of environment is established for every single session.

The tutors work closely with the E-Board to craft a path to success for each and every student. This means creating achievable short-term and long-term goals, a plan to get to these goals and a methodology for tracking progress. 

 

Our tutors also strive to ensure that their clients are not just clients; but rather, companions. The journey of education and improvement is a tough one, and it is crucial that the relationship between tutors and tutees is a healthy, comfortable one. This relationship is conducive to establishing an open, relaxed, and enjoyable learning environment where students never hesitate to ask questions or express concerns.

 

We are confident that you will find a tutor that fits your needs and goals. Please feel free to reach out to Mohak or Rushil to get into contact with any of these students.
