Writing an outstanding statement of purpose, personal statement essay for college and university applications.

Every year, universities and colleges receive thousands of applications from which they make final offers to a fraction. An excellent statement of purpose / personal statement essay is often the reason behind a selected and rejected application.

How do you emphasise the strengths to your best advantage? Do you want your statement of purpose/ personal statement in your college application to stand out?

I can make a substantial difference to your application. I have experience in writing hundreds of essays and can help you make the final cut to get into your dream college. I have a good understanding of how admission committees at various universities evaluate essays and can therefore help you put your best foot forward on your application.

About Me

I am Dr S Iyer. A tutor with over 17 years of teaching experience including over 11 years of online tutoring as of 2021. I have worked with students in all continents- Americas, Europe, Middle East, and Asia and thus have a good understanding of cultures and curricula followed in various parts of the world.

I have been very successful at making many students perform very well in the subjects that I have tutored, which makes me a sought after teacher. I would be able to provide you with a reference from one of my students so that you can check about my teaching.

My Approach: I believe in teaching the student and not the subject. That is adopting a teaching style that is customized to the learning style of the student. Hence I undertake only one-on-one tutoring. I am patient and friendly, yet firm. I understand student psychology and can strike a chord with students of different age groups.

Said in one line, my aim is to teach you the way I would have loved to have been taught, by making learning "alive and fun" leveraging the use of interactive technology.

Please take a look at the short video clip on my profile.

Dr S Iyer is a very professional, polite and excellent Maths teacher. He immediately wanted to determine my child's ability and learning stage, customising the lesson to meet his needs and targeting weaknesses. I am very pleased indeed!
Dr S Iyer is a wonderful teacher for my teenage son (pre-IB student). He puts a real effort into the lessons. He is always prepared, explains well and suggests adequate exercises to practice and deepen the discussed material.
Dr S was a pleasure to work with. He was patient, flexible with time (he gave me 10 mintues extra) therefore that makes him very understanding and kind. His work was fast delivered and well done. I will be definitely purchasing his services in the future.
A great teacher! Explains very well
Superb experience with Dr S Iyer. Very easy to schedule, responsive, preparation before class and follow up after class. He helped my child understand concepts that were unclear, he has profound knowledge of the subject, he knows how to get my child interested and it helps to learn when one is engaged, I was present in the room during parts of the lessons and I could see he cares about my child liking what he is teaching, but is also focused on making sure she gets it. Via zoom it is very easy to have the lesson. Thank you very much Dr. S Iyer!

I am Dr S Iyer-a tutor with over 17 years of teaching experience as of 2021 and students from across the globe. I teach one-on-one online (over Zoom/ Skype/ Google Meet) using a pen tablet and the screen-share feature. I teach from high school level to Masters level including professional certifications. I have helped several students from various parts of the world do remarkably well in several subjects like Corporate Finance, Investments, Accounting, Microeconomics, CFA, FRM. But more than that, I trust that if I can replace fear of a subject with love for it, then I would have truly made a difference to the student.

I am Dr. S Iyer- a tutor with over 17 years of teaching experience as of 2021 and several hundreds of students from all parts of the globe. I teach one-on-one online over Zoom/ Skype/ Google Meet/ Teams using a pen tablet and the screen-share feature. I have good experience in both "spiral" and "mastery" based homeschool curriculum such as - Saxon Math, - Harold Jacobs - Teaching Textbooks, - Math U See, - The Good and the beautiful - A Beka, - Singapore Math, - Life of Fred, JUMP, - RightStart, - Horizons, - Strayer-Upton etc. Depending on and tailored to the learning style of the student (visual, kinesthetic/ tactile, etc.) my teaching adopts a great deal of "Learn by Viewing" or "Learn by Doing" methodology that leverages the power of web-based interactive tools so as to build a solid foundational understanding. I have helped several students to do remarkably well in all areas of math like Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus, Statistics. I also have experience with various syllabi and therefore, a good sense of what is emphasized by each of them. These include: IB Diploma, Cambridge AS and A levels, Cambridge IGCSE, AP Calculus, Saxon Math ICSE, CBSE I also prepare students for competitive tests like the ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, Oxford MAT, TMUA, STEP, etc. More than anything, I trust that if I can replace the "fear" of a subject with "love" for it, then I would have truly made a difference to the student.
