Suman is a born-and-raised Californian who spent half of his high school years in India, where he taught English and math to underprivileged villagers and thus discovered his passion for teaching. Suman graduated summa cum laude from NC State University with a B.S. in Nuclear Engineering (Tau Beta Pi) and a minor in Political Science. He is currently an analyst at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, where he works on government-sponsored R&D projects. Suman is interested in nuclear non-proliferation and national security law and will start at Harvard Law School this fall to further his studies in those areas.
Suman has experience tutoring students for standardized tests and college-level science and engineering courses. He is active as a mentor for some of MIT’s youth STEM education outreach programs. Suman’s favorite academic subjects to teach are physics and math. He also enjoys test prep tutoring for the LSAT (175) and the SAT II in physics (800) and math (790).
Outside of work, Suman enjoys producing electronic music and cooking. He also plays soccer, reads Stoic philosophy, and watches British television.
