Mitra holds a BS (with honors) from University of California, Davis in Environmental Toxicology (Biomedical and Molecular emphasis). She has been tutoring high school and college students since 2008. In her spare time, Mitra plays the piano, enjoys natural parks and blogs on her co-owned website, Gourmand Out.
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.

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.
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).
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! ...
