Nupoor Wadekar

Branch Manager

Hello! My name is Nupoor Wadekar, a senior in your nearest competitive CA high school, taking a multitude of AP classes and currently under applications stress. Over the course of six years, my family and I moved to India, which besides being responsible for making me multilingual, taught me a series of skills and traits I use (and aim to continue using) towards the entrepreneurship opportunity TTL has given me! The most significant of them being my deep respect for learning - witnessing hundreds of young teens having to struggle for basic education gave me perspective, and spurred my passion for instilling actual knowledge in the youth of the world, not just memorizing textbooks or acing the short term test. During the weekends, I am an avid Model UNer, player of the grand piano, marathon runner, and a hoarder of Malcolm Gladwell books!

Our Tutors

Nikhil Kumar

Hi! My name is Nikhil Kumar, I am a senior in high school and I see myself as hardworking, independent and friendly! I am and have been in numerous AP classes throughout high school. In addition to being a student, I'm a Boy Scout with Troop 237, an officer of the Vista Del Lago Key Club, and a member of the Folsom community. With the time I have, I always strive to stay up to date on whatever tasks I have to do, but during my free time, you can find me around town catching whatever I can while I play Pokémon Go! But, the single most important thing you should know about me is that I'm a firm believer that any obstacle is surpassable with enough effort and determination! No matter how difficult a class may be, there are always ways to relieve some of the pressure! And hence, I believe I am ready to help do just that through Top Tier Learning!

Hi! My name is Srikar Arani. I believe that I am a very outgoing, cooperative, and hardworking person, Both at home and at school.

I see myself following computer science and engineering as a career and have plenty of experience in both. My days are also filled through school clubs as I participate in many different clubs. I belong to the school business club, Model United Nations, and programming club. Outside of school, I am also a school swimmer and have been swimming in swim teams for almost 10 years. I have also interned for Congressman Ami Bera for many months and used the opportunity as a time to work on improving my work ethic and working on time management. I am excited to help students through Top Tier!

Hi! My name is Param and I'm a very friendly, diligent, and fun-natured person.

Outside of school I like volunteering, job-shadowing, and hanging out with my friends. I participated in the Ami Bera internship last year, and the Kaiser internship this year. I would like to go into either business or medicine in the future. My hobbies consist of playing various sports like soccer, volleyball, and basketball. I also love working as a soccer referee to stay with the game as much as I can, which in turn helped me in my communication skills. Besides already having past tutoring experience, I enjoy helping other kids learn and improve in various skills. I look forward to working with Top Tier!

Shreya Acharya

Hey! My name is Shreya and I'm currently a senior at Vista Del Lago. I see myself as outgoing, diligent, and I try to find the fun in everything, whether that's AP testing or finals. I love science, math, and music! I'm always a part of our school's musical productions and am active in more contemporary music around campus and around Folsom. Being able to interact with other musicians at Vista has helped me develop communication and collaboration skills, and of course has let me make valuable friendships. I aspire to go into either medicine or music in the future, so I try to take all of the opportunities available to me to explore these two very different fields. In my spare time, I like to pick up a book, binge-watch House M.D. and Game of Thrones, or record covers for YouTube. I look forward to helping other students through Top Tier Learning!

Hi! My name is Charvi. In school my favorite subjects are math and history, and in the future, I aspire to have a career in the business field. I'm a leader in both the Musicians club and Photographic Arts club, and an active member in several others.

I enjoy nature photography and love to be outside with a camera in my hand. I've been playing the piano for eleven years running. I teach piano and play as a music therapist for folks who are ill. Learning to carefully juggle my time between my hobbies and school has made me excellent at time management.
