While at Washington University in St. Louis, Gargi took courses focused on developmental and educational psychology. In addition, she worked as a research assistant in the Memory & Complex Learning Lab, helping with various studies related to understanding the mechanisms of acquiring, processing, and remembering information.
Her interest in education led to her work as a tutor with Princeton Review in St. Louis, Missouri; with Bailey Test Prep in Naples, Florida; and on her own in various cities. When tutoring, Gargi places a special importance in helping her students build confidence and discipline. Test preparation can be stressful and often leads to students feeling powerless and overwhelmed.

In addition, Gargi has a wide variety of interests, particularly in mathematics and language arts, which allow her to relate to her students and incorporate real-life examples into her lessons. Gargi also takes pride in being detailed and organized.
Gargi’s in-depth understanding of educational psychology combined with her years of experience make her an exceptional tutor. She deeply enjoys helping students and positively impacting their lives.
When not tutoring, Gargi also loves running, painting, and reading.
