My name is Nisha, and I am a Engineer at a medial device company in the greater Philadelphia area. I have a master's in Biomedical Engineering from Drexel University. I have a passion for teaching and working with students. I have many years of tutoring and mentoring experience. At Drexel University, I helped coordinate many outreach programs to get young students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). I have also 9+ years tutoring high school and college students in Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics (through Calculus); I also have 3+ years helping high school students prepare for the ACT/SAT.

I like to guide students to find the path to correct answer rather than "teach" and lecture methods. I am very versatile and vary my tutoring methods from student to student. I am excited to help your child excel in school and prepare for college.

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.

Chemistry

I have taken both Organic Chemistry 1 and 2 in undergrad and received an A in both courses. I am well versed in the organic chemistry material. I also have experience tutoring organic chemistry both online and in person.

Amazing!! — First off, Nisha came to the rescue at the 11th hour and made herself fully available. Not only did she review my lecture notes, but she prepared her own to share with me and brought her own textbook which had a different approach to some of the topics I was studying. She was so prepared to help me. Furthermore, she was incredibly patient! ...
