Naman Satish, Indian
Outreach Officer & Tutor
Hello! My name is Naman Satish, and hopefully I will be helping you achieve your academic goals. I’ve helped students in my school with Math and Chemistry, two subjects that I can personally assist you with. I enjoy helping others overcome challenges that prevent them from succeeding, and Kara Tutoring has reinforced my ability to help you. In the past, I have been in a similar situation where I didn’t have access to help, while most of my peers did. However, my experiences forced me to reflect and improve my ability to overcome challenges and how to help others overcome theirs. International communication and tutoring others have shown me how to be a better learner, communicator, and global citizen. Hopefully, if you apply either as a tutor or as a student to get help from the Kara Team, I’ll be there to greet you and help you succeed. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. I promise that I will be thrilled to hear from you!
