Hi, my name is Priya, and I am a May 2014 graduate from Truman State University! I received my Bachelor's of Science degree in Biology with minors in Chemistry and Anthropology.

For the past two years, I have tutored first graders, middle schoolers, and adults preparing for the GED in Kirksville, Missouri. Several of the people I have helped tutor for the GED have gone on to pass their tests! I will be attending medical school this fall 2014 at the University of Nebraska, but I will be in Peoria for the summer. Since I have really loved being a tutor in Kirksville, I am hoping to continue this work in Peoria for the next few months!

I am open to tutoring a wide scope of ages, including grade school, middle school, high school, and beyond, in a variety of subjects including but not limited to: science, math, English, writing, and reading. Hours are flexible, and I am willing to travel to your home for tutoring sessions.

My honors and achievements include membership in the academic organization Phi Beta Kappa, Honors in Biology from my university, and Summa Cum Laude status. I have also published in the Journal of Global Health and enjoy writing, reading, and editing. In addition, I have studied abroad in Cape Town, South Africa, played for my university's ultimate Frisbee team and am a long distance runner.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your educational goals! Please contact me with any questions!

Organic Chemistry

As a Biology major and Chemistry minor at Truman State University, I took 2 semesters of Organic Chemistry lecture and 1 semester of Organic Chemistry lab. Over the course of the first semester, I learned Lewis diagrams, nomenclature, stereochemistry, basic reaction mechanisms including elimination and substitution, and reactions with alkanes, alkenes, and alkynes. In the second semester, I covered reactions for specific functional groups, including alcohols, ethers, epoxides, esters, aromatics, ketones, aldehydes, amines, amides, and carboxylic acids and their derivatives. I also learned how to interpret laboratory tests such as infrared (IR) and NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry.

Because I received A's in all of these courses and also consistently met with other students in my classes to assist them, I am comfortable with organic chemistry. To assist my fellow students, I would frequently ask them a series of questions they could answer step by step to reach the final answer. I also would utilize memory devices such as flashcards and mnemonic devices, as organic chemistry requires a great deal of base knowledge. Furthermore, I reviewed the subject matter once again when I reviewed for the MCAT, which I took in August of 2013.

Books used in class were the textbook from Wade, 7th edition, along with the 2nd edition of Klein's Organic Chemistry I, both of which I still own and can be used for student guidance.
