He has instructed close to 150 students one-on-one over his career as a tutor. He specializes in Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Mathematics, Critical Thinking, Essay Writing, and general test preparation. Ashwin has also served on the admissions committee at his medical school & has worked with many students on crafting successful applications.
