How Can I Help

I like to teach specialized strategies that I’ve used to do well in classes, and I enjoy teaching concepts from different perspectives so that my mentees gain a thorough understanding of course material.


My name is Akhil Kesaraju, and I am a senior from Lexington, Kentucky. I am studying microbiology and anthropology, and I use he/him pronouns. In my free time, I work in several advocacy-related groups on and off campus. I am also very passionate about films, tennis, and basketball.
