Apoorva has over 13 years of tutoring experience in math, sciences, and standardized test prep.

Apoorva graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in biology and minors in chemistry and south Asian studies. During his time at UPenn, Apoorva was also a volunteer tutor in West Philadelphia through the West Philadelphia Tutoring Project, as well as a student mentor through the Sayre Health Initiatives, Education, and Leadership Development (SHIELD) program.

Apoorva initially began tutoring at an afterschool mathematics program and then continued to privately tutor various elementary, middle, and high school students in math, science, English, and basic Spanish. One of his long-term students was a student with ADHD, and the immense satisfaction he got from his student’s grades improving from all D’s to all B’s made him realize how much he enjoyed tutoring.

Apoorva also earned his D.D.S. at the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine and is currently living in Massachusetts.

Apart from tutoring, Apoorva enjoys playing volleyball competitively, dancing, watching football, making and editing videos, watching movies, and hanging out in the sun.
