I have over 35 years of experience as a Chemistry professor. I achieved various meritorious teacher awards throughout my career as a professor. I am extremely patient and supportive to my students and consider their success as a biggest achievement.

My primary subject area is organic chemistry, but I have taught general chemistry as well. I have written five books and 52 publications and those are used by many Phd students. I have delivered lectures to young chemistry faculty at various colleges and universities.

My teaching style is to keep it simple and start from the basics so that students build an interest in the subject in a way that students relate the subject to some of their daily activities. This enhances their ability to retain the knowledge.

As a student I was a member of the basketball team at my school, in college (was captain of college team) and at the university. I remained president of University Basketball Club for twenty years. On the basis of my coaching, guidance and intensive involvement, the teams won the inter-university championship for many years. In addition, I umpired the tournaments of various clubs.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am science graduate and possess considerable knowledge about various subjects to teach students of K-6 grades. I have studied the languages, chemistry, biochemistry, math, botany, zoology, geography, history, political science, etc. and have taught these subjects to students for years. As a teacher my main task is to foster understanding, and not rote learning. I am extremely empathetic, have patience and understand that each individual needs a different teaching approach. My purpose is to leave an individual unperplexed, exuberant and with better knowledge of the subject that I find absent in the beginning.
Teaching is my passion that I am continuing for the last 40 years. I am of the strong opinion that a person must start learning at an early age to achieve the success. The child with the grasp of language, math and science can accomplish the goal of his or her life. Consequently, it is pertinent to begin the learning process as early as possible and lay ahead of others.
I was, in fact, professor of chemistry in the university and came across a wide variety of students. It made me aware that family, education and good schooling play a significant role to make obvious aficionados of any discipline or trait. An erudite person becomes a creative thinker, an innovator; achieves higher cognitive luster and strides oneself on a trajectory to be the leader among the pantheon of the next generation. I want to show them that anything can be done, no matter their background. Hence, I reckon to devote significant time to tutor the students of young age, in addition to my chemistry teaching to college and university students.
Kindly inquire about hourly rates as I understand the family circumstances and can be quite flexible.

Organic Chemistry

I am PhD in organic chemistry and post doctorate with Nobel laureate. I have 35 years of experience of teaching and research of organic chemistry. I correlate the subject to the needs of daily life. I start the topic with basic concepts and thus build the confidence of the student to learn and understand the subject conveniently and with an interest. The student then becomes keen to know more about the subject and promote his or her learning process with ease.
I am recipient of Meritorious Teacher Award and was the resource person to educate the young faculty of colleges and universities so that they remain abreast regarding the latest developments and use of the new teaching techniques in the subject.

Study Skills

As a professor of chemistry, I taught the subject for 35 years to the students of various disciplines and have the honor to receive the Meritorious Teacher Award. I am the author of five books, review and research articles and have delivered plenary and invited lectures in international conferences, symposia and workshops. I was subject referee and editor of research journals.

After my retirement I have started tutoring job and try to clarify the basic concepts so that students do not face any difficulty to understand the subject. Every student needs a different teaching approach, so I adapt patiently to teach the subject. A good teacher can convert the untapped potential of a student into knowledge, just how an automobile transforms the hidden strength gasoline to energy.

Excellent Tutor and a Wonderful Person Ranjit was very helpful in my preparation for organic chemistry. Before I started receiving tutoring from him, I was quite anxious as I had heard all sorts of things about how difficult organic chemistry was. However, with the guidance of Ranjit, these worries soon dissipated. Ranjit has a knack for explaining difficult concepts and aptly correlates these concepts with everyday life, making each l ...
