Anita Agasaveeran

Academic Tutor

I was born in Newark, California, and raised by two parents who cultivated my love for physics and engineering. As a child, I was always encouraged to take things apart and see how they worked, but it wasn’t until my senior year of high school that I realized that I wanted to study physics. In fact, throughout my high school years, I think I didn’t like math, and it took a good physics teacher to change my perspective and show me the importance of math in describing how the world works. 

I pursued a bachelor’s degree in astrophysics at Michigan State University, where I also conducted nuclear and astrophysical research. My academic pursuits culminated in completing and presenting a thesis on determining properties of type II supernovae progenitors.

Throughout my time at university, I spoke at numerous conferences and found that I not only enjoyed learning about physics and math but also enjoyed teaching people about it. This encouraged me to pick up tutoring with a local program where I taught pre-calculus and physics. Eventually, I was afforded the opportunity to help high school students conduct nuclear physics research and present it at national conferences.

At AJ Tutoring, I aim to continue encouraging the next generation of students to share my joy in the physical sciences. While calculus and physics are complex subjects, I believe everyone can understand and enjoy them with the right resources.

Outside of tutoring, I enjoy hiking with friends, reading novels, listening to music, and playing piano.
