Anil Reddy

Math Tutor

Working through the pandemic, Anil made sure that the complex theories and ideas in math were able to be explained in an easier way to online students. Studying as an engineer, Anil is on his way to his masters, and is more than capable of meeting students where they may be, instead of relying on them to catch up to him. An avid cricket player, Anil is a star both on and off the field.
