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.

Biochemistry

My teaching expertise include structure, function and regulation of enzymes in catalyzing biological reactions; substrates and enzyme specificity, control of enzyme activity, metabolism (glycolysis, Krebs cycle, ETC, oxidative phosphorylation, metabolism of fats and proteins); DNA structure and function (see genetics course description); protein synthesis (see genetics course description); eukaryotic chromosome organization; control of gene expression in eukaryotes.

Biology

I teach all levels of Biology, including college, AP and honors.

Topics I teach are: Enzyme structure, function, specificity and regulation; basic metabolism; DNA and protein structure, function and synthesis; Eukaryotic cell organization and gene expression; Microbiology of Fungi; Virus Structure and life cycle; Prokaryotic cell structure, growth, physiology and genetics; Eukaryotic cell components structure and function (membrane bound organelles, plasma membrane, cytoskeleton, cell cycle and mitosis, apoptosis); Evolution (natural selection, speciation, ontogeny and phylogeny, origin of life); comparative Anatomy of chordate features and vertebrate phylogeny; Physiology (see physiology course description); Genetics (see genetics course description).

Chemistry

I offer chemistry tutoring for all levels, including college, AP and honors.

Topics I teach are: electron structure and periodic table; bonding; phases and phase equilibria; stoichiometry; thermodynamics and thermochemistry; reaction kinetics; solution chemistry; solubility; acids and bases (acid-base equilibria and titration); electrochemistry; atomic structure; nuclear chemistry.

Genetics

My expertise include DNA structure, composition and function; central dogma; DNA replication mechanism for both prokaryotes and eukaryotes; repair of DNA during replication and mutations; recombinant DNA techniques (i.e. restriction enzymes, hybridization, gene cloning and PCR); protein synthesis; genetic code; transcription and translation, and its regulation; Mendelian concepts; meiosis and genetic variability; analytic methods (i.e. Hardy-Weinburg principle and testcross).

Physiology

General eukaryotic cell components structure and function; nerve and muscle cell components structure and function; systems: nervous, circulatory, lymphatic, immune, digestive, execratory, muscle, skeletal, skin, reproductive and development.

Very good at explaining things! — For me, I understand general concepts, and I just have many specific questions. Mitra is very good at helping me with those small details and explains everything very clearly. I've only had her for a couple weeks now, but I haven't forgotten a single thing she has told me. The way she explains the concepts gets the information stuck in your head. Thank you, Mitra! ...
