I am a biologist, and I have been associated with Newton Public Schools, Newton, MA for the past two years. Additionally, I hold a Massachusetts Preliminary Teaching License in Biology (Grades 5-12) and General Science (Grades 5-8). Currently, I am a graduate student in the Secondary School Teaching Licensure Program at Brandeis University, Waltham, MA.

I have been connected with the field of education during my entire career. My passion for Biology prompted me to do a Doctorate in Botany from India. I continued my research after moving to the United States during which time I switched my field of investigation from Botany to Cell Biology. I studied proteins involved in disease and development and published my work in several peer-reviewed journals such as Molecular Biology of the Cell, Biochemistry, Cell Signaling and Journal of Cell Science. While working as a post-doctoral research associate, I realized, as much as I enjoyed doing basic research, I also enjoyed training fresh graduate students who joined the laboratory. This led me to seriously consider a career in teaching where I can share my enthusiasm and knowledge for the subject as well as a first hand experience in a laboratory setting with our younger generation of students and our budding scientists.

In today’s world, health care is one of the most important areas of human development. Medical breakthroughs are instrumental in making us live healthy and live longer than our ancestors. In order to continue this positive trend we need a future generation who will be able to compete globally to make our health care world class through research and innovation. Although we have made enormous progress in the field of medicine, our complete understanding of the biology of many diseases still remains enigmatic. Integration of classical chemistry and cell biology has given us a unique opportunity to develop drugs that can target specific molecule(s) in our cells to prevent devastating diseases. It is extremely important for the young students who harbor ambitions to join the medical profession or pursue careers in basic or clinical research, to understand basic biology as well as the current cutting edge technology of modern medical science. I have obtained a world-class education from a famous Indian Universities with a major in Botany. I obtained University Second Rank with High Honors in my undergraduate and master’s programs. My graduate thesis was on studying naturally occurring growth regulators from specific plants. My post-doctoral research was focused on a very specific field of biology where I studied mechanisms of extracellular signal transmission into the cells to control development and disease. Extracellular signals are captured by the cell surface receptors and transmitted inside the cells to activate or inactivate intracellular signaling pathways is critical for maintaining healthy cellular activities. Impairment of one or more of these cellular functions, often termed as signal transduction, leads to cell death or cell transformation causing cancer, cardiovascular diseases or neurodegenerative disorders. Drugs targeting one or more of the receptors may repair the damages done during disease progression.

My ambition as an educator is to develop a community with a strong scientific background that will be compatible with the future global community, bringing new ideas to improve our ways of living. My primary teaching philosophy is to work towards developing critical thinking among young students so that they acquire strong analytical and logical thinking skills. This is instrumental for innovation and scientific progress. I possess the five most important qualities of a successful teacher: I am passionate, creative, and flexible and most importantly I possess integrity and connect well with my students.

To my understanding, biology is one of the best scientific faculties that can challenge students to think critically and independently because a lot remains unknown in the field of bioscience. Understanding biology is essential because it is directly associated with health care, which is one of the most critical aspects of human wellbeing. My general scientific philosophy is shaped by the view that the serendipity of life may sometimes lead to seminal discovery, but there is the presumption or assertion of causality that needs to be questioned. With this worldview in mind, I will always strive to encourage my students to think critically, ask questions, and not merely accept my ideas and opinions as a rule. I am confident that by successfully connecting to my students, I shall provide them with a strong scientific foundation that will help them choose their career paths and accomplish their future goals.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biology

I have a Massachusetts Preliminary Teaching License for Biology (Grades 5-12) and General Science (Grades 5-8). I have served as a substitute teacher for Newton Public Schools (F.A. Day Middle School and Newton North High School) in Newton, MA from 2012 to the Present. I am currently studying for Secondary School Teaching Licensure in the Education Program, at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA (2013-2014).

I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Boston University in Boston, MA for the project "Lung Epithelial Morphogenesis" from 2009 to 2010. I was a Postdoctoral Fellow/ Research Associate at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA for the project "Rho signaling- Role of heterotrimeric and monomeric G-proteins in cell transformation and gene transcription" from 2001 to 2009.

I received my PhD in Botany from the University of Calcutta, India (1991-1997). My doctoral thesis title was "Isolation, characterization and bioassay of naturally occurring growth regulators from plants of economic importance including mangroves of the Gangetic delta."

Hindi

I had Hindi as my second language in school (second to twelfth grade), as well as during my undergraduate course. While in college, for my outstanding grades in high school Hindi course, I also received a Hindi scholarship. I am well versed in both writing and verbal communication and I am confident that I will make my students enjoy the language.
