Arvin Vohra Education (AVE) provides a range of innovative educational products and services to its discriminating clients. Whether working with individuals or larger institutions, AVE seeks to provide educational solutions of uncompromising quality. AVE avoids the quick-fixes and shortcuts which only serve to weaken a student's intellectual foundation, and instead works to develop the student's core cognitive and reasoning skills. In an age in which it is considered acceptable to teach students math by teaching calculator techniques, AVE stays true to the principles of classical education.
In a larger sense, AVE places the cognitive and educational development of the student above all other concerns. It continually strives to pioneer better educational methods to improve the quality of services available to its clients. Moreover, AVE has chosen not to offer certain high-demand services that do not develop students' abilites. For example, AVE does not offer any service that writes college essays for students. Instead, AVE offers intensive guidance for the essay writing process, in which the student learns the craft himself. Although this process is much more involved, the student's writing skills develop dramatically, and the end product is usually of much higher quality. By maintaining its integrity, AVE sets an example for its students, and encourages their growth as leaders among their peers.
Arvin Vohra's most recent credits include such innovations as Vocabulary Synapse, Rapid
Analytical Reading, and the Arvin
Vohra Accelerated Math Curriculum. He teaches many of AVE's seminars, and tutors in nearly every subject area.
Arvin's passion for educational innovation began while he was studying at the Landon School in Bethesda, MD. He learned algebra in a few weeks to advance a level in math, and even attended college courses as early as eighth grade. In high school, he received a score of 5 on 10 AP exams to become an AP National Scholar. For 6 of those exams, he did not take the corresponding AP class, and instead relied on intensive outside study. He was also a National Merit Finalist, with the highest SAT and PSAT scores in his graduating class. On the SAT, he received a score of 790 on both the math and verbal sections. He also received a perfect score of 800 on both the Math IIc and Chemistry SAT II tests. For his efforts he was awarded the Rensselaer Medal for Math and Science in his Junior year. During this time, Arvin worked actively as a tutor for younger students, most notably at the North Chevy Chase Elementary School.
Arvin attended Brown University, where his passion for educational innovation continued to grow. He worked as a tutor and teacher as part of the Wheeler School's Aerie Program. At Wheeler, he designed accelerated and nontraditional curricula for students ranging from second to eighth grade. Later, he worked as a consultant for the Hamilton Institute for Learning Differences. After graduating from Brown University with a B.Sc. in mathematics and a B.A. in economics, he received a perfect score on both the GRE and the GMAT. He also passed two actuarial exams in a single testing period while working as an actuary at GEICO.
After founding Arvin Vohra Tutoring, the forerunner of Arvin Vohra Education, Arvin began investigating the cognitive processes associated with learning and problem solving in a more systematic and rigorous manner. This process lead to the development of many of the tutoring methods now in use, while laying the foundation for such developments as Rapid
Analytical Reading, the Advanced
SAT Seminars, and the Arvin
Vohra Accelerated Math Curriculum.
