Mitra’s qualifications in specific subjects below.
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 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).
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.
