About Gitanjali

Patient and knowledgeable tutor specializing in math and science subjects.

I hold a master's degree in medical sciences and a BS in biology. I am 33 years old and currently work as a full-time tutor.

Despite some positive reviews, I am not a hard-core, know-it-all tutor; in fact, there are many times I have to refer or review material myself. For me, being HUMAN, but striving for knowledge, is most important and most legitimate. I try to customize my approach and lesson plans according to the student's needs. Everyone is different with their individual learning styles, and so I will try to adjust to a style that is right for you. A majority of the sessions involve simply addressing material students already have from school and working through and understanding this material. I often email students with worksheets for extra practice, and at times create games or use powerpoint to supplement the sessions.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

General Computer

I spend a lot of my time on the computer with online tutoring and other tasks. This experience has allowed me to master general computer usage such as opening and closing software, organizing hard drive, managing files and folders, microsoft office, online searches, email, etc. In today's fast-paced society, it is critical for people to gain skills in general computer usage. The internet is an incredible source of information . . information that may have once been inaccessible by some people. I love to help people take advantage of the resources provided to us by computers.

Genetics

Having a MA in Medical Sciences and a BS in biology has given me much exposure to genetics. I can help you with population dynamics, the punnett square, pedigrees, Mendelian Inheritance, and other concepts related to gene linkage and meiosis.

MCAT

I have successfully taken the MCAT myself. Having an expertise in Biology, I am offering Only MCAT biology tutoring. So, come to me for all your MCAT biology needs. There is a lot to plow through here, and I can make it more interesting and easier for you.

She started teaching Biology and since she was a very effective tutor we asked her this summer to tutor math to prepare our daughter for SAT exam in October.
