Yash Jhaveri graduated with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree from Columbia University concentrating in Mathematics and Visual Arts. He has also completed his Master’s degree in Mathematics at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. His proclivity for math started early, taking the SATs in 7th grade and courses at the Johns Hopkins CTY summer program. Before starting NYU, Yash worked at the law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz as a corporate paralegal.
While at Columbia, Yash served as a Teaching Assistant in the Department of Mathematics. He worked with calculus and linear algebra students during weekly office hours to help them understand theory and concepts, work through challenging assignments, and prepare for exams. Yash also served as a Teaching Assistant in the Visual Arts department at Columbia. After studying abroad in Madrid, Spain at La Universidad Autonoma, he spent a summer as a Counselor for New York State’s NYSSSA School of the Visual Arts aiding high school students to develop their passion for painting, drawing, sculpting, and printmaking.
Yash’s teaching philosophy relies on approaching problems from many different angles. He uses specific examples, both mathematical and nonmathematical, to illustrate major concepts. Many areas of mathematics were developed to help gain a clearer understanding of the world and how it works; therefore, Yash believes it is important and effective to help his students connect what they are learning to their personal lives. Yash offers private tutoring and standardized test preparation in all areas of advanced math for middle school, high school, and college students. He specializes in helping students to prepare for the ISEE, SSAT, SHSAT, SAT, ACT, and AP exams as well as Regents and state testing.
In his free time, Yash enjoys solving brainteasers, reading, and playing squash, tennis, and golf.
