About

Born and raised in beautiful Los Angeles, Gopu attended St. Monica Catholic High School before earning a BS in Biology from UCLA and an MD from St. George’s University School of Medicine. In high school, Gopu received scores of 5 on his AP Calculus and AP English exams, and he earned a perfect score on the SAT Math 2 Subject Test. He was an AP scholar with distinction as well as a member of the National Honor Society and California Scholars Foundation.

Gopu has extensive experience tutoring students at the high school and college levels. He has helped students get into top private high schools, such as Harvard Westlake, Marlborough, Marymount, and Windward. After working with Gopu, multiple students have improved their SAT Math scores by over 100 points in just a few weeks, while others have been able to raise their SAT Verbal scores from the low 500s to the mid-700s. Gopu’s students have gone on to attend top-ranked colleges, including Cornell, Georgetown, MIT, and Northwestern. In addition, Gopu has tutored college students in Calculus, Statistics, Physics, and Physical and Organic Chemistry.

Gopu takes a unique approach with every student, helping them build their confidence and reach their full potential. Students appreciate Gopu’s humor, flexibility, and empathy; he helps students redirect their feelings of stress as they learn to view their progress as part of an overall trend. As a result, some of Gopu’s students have been able to improve their unweighted GPAs from 2.5 to 3.5+, gaining acceptance to colleges they had initially considered unattainable.
