I belong to a family of teachers - my mother, my aunts and uncles were all teachers and professors in Colleges and Universities. Raised in this background, I had a natural passion for teaching. My father had a transferable jobs so we moved from one city to another. In this process I got exposed to people from different cultural backgrounds and learnt a lot about their cultures, language, food etc. I love to mingle between people of varied cultural groups.
After my PhD in Microbiology, I got the job of a scientist in a reputed research laboratory in India where I was exposed to extensive lab work and presentation of data at symposia and conferences. It was during one such meeting that a Principal of the Institute of Engineering and Technology offered me an invitation to deliver lectures in Biotechnology to his students. I instantly accepted this tenured offer. I soon became a popular teacher and took pride in this profession.
I strongly believe that teachers must generate curiosity and passion about a subject area to motivate the students to grasp the subject with ease. I have worked in the Biotechnology industry in the Bay area for 8 years.
BS in Botany Zoology and Chemistry
MS in Microbiology
In my opinion, the teacher must have a vision of the goals to be met, have adequate skills, and be able to build a relationship between the teacher and the student. The teacher should be current in her/his knowledge and be able to cite examples relevant to the literature and maintain the process of mutual feedback.In summary, I enjoy teaching and love to read new findings from journals and websites to keep my students well informed ,confident and will help them achieve their career goals.

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.
