Vidya's Bio

An outgoing tutor who makes friends wherever she goes, Vidya is passionate about sharing her love of learning with others. She holds a BS in neurobiology with a minor in psychology from Boston University and an MS in biomedical sciences from Lincoln Memorial University - Debusk College of Osteopathic Medicine. After college, Vidya worked for a year as a research intern with a focus on diabetes in an endocrinology lab at Boston University Medical School before entering graduate school. She is now a medical student, studying remotely while tutoring test prep.

Vidya started tutoring in 2011 while in high school and continued through college and her graduate studies. “As someone who participated with teachers as a student, I love when I foster that same mentorship relationship with students and they feel comfortable asking me for help,” she shares. She has tutored students from kindergarten to college level in a variety of academic subjects, including science and math. In test prep, she has taught the PSAT, ACT, and SAT. Vidya's tutoring style is influenced by her own experiences with studying for exams. “As a student, I learned there are many different types of learners, and so I try to find what style fits each student best and supplement with material that will help.” For example, Vidya tends to be a visual learner and often draws out diagrams or watches videos to ensure she fully understands concepts. “I believe if students can figure out what type of learner they are it helps them make the most out of study time,” she says, explaining that it is more important how effectively you study versus how long you study.

Vidya has played tennis since she was young and was on the high school team for two years. She enjoys being outdoors as often as possible and recently became more of an avid hiker. She has always loved creative outlets from painting to sewing and, more recently, graphic and interior design. There are many places she hopes to travel to but for now, she enjoys learning to cook things from some of her favorite places. Her fun fact is that she didn't learn to ride a bike until she was sixteen.
