Andrew Nayyar

Test Prep & Academic Tutor


A native of beautiful Newark, California, and a graduate of Cal State East Bay, I have been passionate about and involved in education for my entire professional life. I have worked as a tutor, instructional aide, basketball coach, and flag football coach. I have worked with students of all ages and ability levels.

It is a great joy for me to nurture young minds, and I truly love to see students reach their academic and athletic goals. I approach teaching with an understanding of diversity and tailor each session to the unique needs of each student. I am a firm believer in strong work ethic, and believe that with patience, diligence, and hard work, all students are capable of reaching their goals!

Here at AJ Tutoring, I’m a long-standing HSEE test prep tutor, where I focus on improving a student’s test-taking skills, comfort level with the exam, and time-saving strategies. I enjoying helping students with their homework, study skills, and test prep. I find great satisfaction in seeing my students succeed!

I also specialize in academic math, English, and study skills tutoring. As an academic tutor, in addition to working on content, I help students improve their time management and organizational skills, which are tools that go well beyond success in the classroom. Study skills tutoring enables students to develop lifelong habits of staying organized and balancing their time. My goal is for students to leave with an executive functioning base that will allow them to thrive in school and get the most out of their educational experiences. Many students struggle with the organizational foundation necessary to succeed in school, and I help them see the benefits of solid study skills in a fun way.

I’m currently pursuing my multi-subject teaching credential. In addition to tutoring and teaching, I am still coaching basketball in the afternoons and on weekends. I also enjoy watching sports and taking long bike rides!

Happy parents and students.

 The most helpful part is going through problems that I don’t understand step-by-step so that I understand how to do similar problems in the future. The tutors are great and they have one for every subject I need help with.  Read what others are saying
