I’m passionate about science and find it very rewarding to nurture students’ curiosity and interest in their natural world. My primary objectives are:
1. To inculcate good study habits and improve test taking strategies.
2. To identify academic weaknesses and tailor courses to students' needs.
3. To enhance intuitive understanding of all the diverse scientific facts so students are no longer intimidated or bored by concepts.
I try to foster an exploratory atmosphere where students feel comfortable asking questions and sharing their thoughts. I believe in conceptual learning and strive to make connections between abstract theory and real-life applications. I always bring plenty of worksheets and multiple choice questions of the complexity level you will actually encounter in your exams.
I have excelled in diverse courses during my Bachelor's, Master's and Ph.D studies, receiving amongst the highest GPA scores. I have a particularly strong foundation in Biochemistry, Genetics, Immunology and Microbiology. I have experience teaching SAT II, AP level and college biology and chemistry.
Currently, I am tutoring high school and College students in AP Biology, Genetics, Physiology, AP Chemistry and Honors Chemistry. I'm also mentoring students in developing research proposals/projects for science competitions/fairs. I've coached two students who were both USA Biology Olympiad finalists in 2013 and 2014. Previously, I have served as a teaching assistant in several graduate level courses. I have led small group discussions with first year graduate students in Introductory Immunology. I've delivered lectures to a class of 20 first year medical students in different concepts of clinical Biochemistry. I have also enjoyed the opportunity to mentor an undergraduate student in hands-on science at my laboratory at Stanford University.
I welcome gifted students who are preparing for competition or Olympiads to join during summer. Apply soon!
