About Dipalee

My goal as a tutor is help students better understand the material and build a strong foundation of knowledge to help them in the future. Rather than simply teaching material and helping prepare students for testing, I aim to help my students succeed in the long term by emphasizing proper understanding of the basics and fundamentals of each subject. The students who succeed the most as they continue their education are those who have continued to build upon what they have learned, and thus, the stronger one's foundation is, the more he/she will shine in his/her future studies.

During a tutoring session, I aim to keep my students on their feet and solving problems at all times. Rather than simply teaching them, I allow my students to attempt practice questions and sample problems to better understand where they struggle and then I mold my tutoring based on each students individual needs. My goal is to guide students to not only learn material for an upcoming exam, but to help them connect the dots between what they learn and thus help them better understand and retain the material. By doing so, my students slowly started to strengthen their knowledge of the basics and fundamentals and that will make it easier for them in the long run.

My students are definitely very well prepared for their exams and classwork, but they also walk away with a strong foundation in subjects they once struggled with. They leave with the confidence and ability to apply their knowledge far into the future.

I am a UCLA graduate with a BS/BA degree in Physiological Science and Study of Religion, and I will be starting physical therapy school in February 2014.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I took Organic Chemistry courses at UCLA, and I received an A. Organic Chemistry is generally a very tough class for many students, but I have developed many techniques that have helped me in the course, and I would be happy to help other students using those techniques as well. In order to excel in Organic Chemistry, students must do a lot of practice, and I have many different sources that can help in additional practice.
