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.

ADD/ADHD

I have taught two elementary school students with ADD/ADHD and have been involved with adults having ADD/ADHD in providing them general help with day-to-day chores.

Anatomy

I work in the anatomy department of a medical school where I help students with their anatomy questions

Biology

I am a biomedical scientist and have been in the field of biomedical research for long time. I have helped high school students and undergraduates as well as medical students, and I still do it at the department where I work in.

Ecology

I have studied Ecology as a part of Genetics curriculum and have worked in an Evolutionary biology lab for two years helping junior students. I regularly answer questions on Ecology for Wyzant students and shall be able to help advanced Ecology students.

English

My daily work includes extensive writing in English for grant applications and scientific articles in peer reviewed journals. Therefore, writing and editing comes easy to me and I can impart those skills easily to students who are attempting various writing projects.

ESL/ESOL

Over this weekend, I just finished correcting and improving English for a book chapter written by a Brazilian university professor. About a month ago, I transcribed and translated a Voice of America Hindi program from CD into an article in English. I have helped many colleagues in improving English for their scientific articles for peer reviewed international journals and I am usually sought by colleagues for such help.

General Computer

I have been using computers for typing, database search, figures and slide preparation for over 25 years. it indeed is fun to learn and impart these skills to others so that they can have the same fun!

Genetics

I have a PhD in Drosophila Genetics and I have worked in molecular genetics laboratories for over a decade.

Grammar

I am a biomedical scientist and for my everyday work in the lab, I write many grant applications based on the guidelines of the funding agency. Accurate grammar and good write-up skills are very important for successful grant applications. I do have extensive experience in writing and very good grammar skills.

Hindi

I have taught Hindi at the middle school and high school level in Calcutta, India. In US, I have volunteered at India School in Bethesda teaching Hindi at intermediate level to children as well as students. Hindi has been my first language throughout my grade school years and I have also taken a Hindi course from Prayag Samiti in India. It is equivalent to college degree. Recently, I took DLPT test administered by DoD for people who know Hindi and English at native level. Since last August I also became a member of NLSC providing exclusive Hindi and English services for federal agencies.

MCAT

I work at Anatomy dept of Medical school and have been involved in biomedical research for about 25 years. In my current position, I write grant applications on rare human diseases and their possible cure through research.

Microbiology

My microbiology experience comes from my many years at NIH where I worked in research labs using microbiology techniques and attended many seminars on the topic. I have helped Wyzant as well as many other students with microbiology needs.

Needlework

I had been knitting since I was four years old! At that age, I used to knit with Chinese chop sticks. Through out my grade school years in India, I spent winter break (approximately three weeks) knitting sweaters for family members. I used to finish one sweater in 4 days. Similarly, I have done lot of needlework embroidering saris, dresses, table clothes etc. I have taught these skills to many who wanted to learn.

Nutrition

I have been involved in volunteer nutritional counseling to disabled clients for over six years.

Physiology

I work with anatomy students helping them with their physiology and anatomy needs.

Reading

Reading is my most favorite activity. I have volunteered as a reading volunteer in Montgomery county public schools. I have also helped in reading to adults with limited abilities. It indeed is gratifying to see someone read better and take reading as a hobby.

SAT Reading

I have helped many students who hated to read, I was able to motivate them to take reading as relaxation rather than a chore. They picked it up as hobby and were able to improve their SAT scores.

TOEFL

I worked in an international scientific institute, NIH, where many colleagues came from non-English speaking countries. I helped their families with English needs and it was a pleasure to see them becoming proficient and succeeding on the tests.

Writing

My daily work includes extensive reading plus writing grant applications and helping graduate students with their dissertation write up as well as research reports. I have published in peer-reviewed international journals and have also translated in English from other languages.

Zoology

I have completed my PhD from Zoology department of Calcutta University, India. In addition, I have worked with animal systems during my training at NIH.
