I have been in love with biology since childhood, encouraged by my parents and teachers. What followed was a single-minded pursuit, leading to a Master's degree and a PhD. After doing research in biology at Stanford for 4 years, I had a good fortune to return to my home country, India, and teach in a new undergraduate college. This gave me a taste for teaching biology, something that allowed me to talk about the subject I love, dabble in other biologists' ideas and work, and return to the college environment, full of young and energetic minds. I am now back in the United States, and want to continue my passion for teaching here. I want to start small. I too will be learning as I teach.

I have a Master's degree in Zoology, with specialization in Genetics. As a 'Refresher's course" I am currently taking an on-line course given by Prof. Eric Lander of MIT, where he devotes 14 lectures altogether to Genetics, Molecular Biology, Recombinant DNA and Genomics. During my Ph.D. and Post-doctoral research, I worked with Drosophila melanogaster, an organism amenable to genetic manipulations. I am well versed with modern genetic manipulation techniques, and molecular genetics.


I have a Master's degree in Genetics and a Ph.D. in Developmental Biology. I have been teaching and tutoring biology for almost 3 years. My experience as a researcher has helped me create enthusiasm in my students. I am fully qualified to teach biology to MCAT students.

Fantastic Biology Tutor I was struggling in my General Biology for Engineers course and so I decided to meet with Narmada. She was extremely knowledgeable and helped me gain a much more comprehensive understanding of DNA replication, RNA transcription, and Protein Translation. Narmada was patient and willing to explain anything that I was confused with. I will definitely meet with her again next time I'm struggling. ...
