About Ani

I am a pharmacist with more than 3 years of private tutoring experience with elementary school, high school, college, and nursing school students. I am deeply passionate about teaching and science and enjoy sharing my knowledge with students. I am very patient, caring, and like to tailor my lessons to meet the learning style of the student I am working with. I try to make my lessons fun, interactive, and memorable. I have the most experience tutoring general biology including college level and AP, general chemistry, and physiology. I also work with elementary school children to improve their reading and math skills.

A few more words about my background: I am a practicing pharmacist and also have a BA in Biological Sciences from USC. I greatly enjoy teaching and tutoring science; it has always been a great passion of mine, and I hope to make this subject fun and interesting for you.

In addition to tutoring science, I am also available to help with college personal statements, college application process, and any other college or career related concerns as I have been through the whole process myself several times.

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.

Biology

I have a BA in Biological Sciences from USC and several years of tutoring experience in all levels of biology including honors, AP, and college level. I am highly passionate about this subject and love teaching it! Biology can be a struggle for students because of the amount of information and the unfamiliar terminology. I will meet you where you are and help organize the information in such a manner that will make it easier to remember.

If biology is a weakness for you, don't hesitate to contact me!

College Counseling

I am currently a graduate student at USC, and having applied to both undergraduate and graduate programs throughout my life, have the knowledge and information necessary to help you with college applications and choosing a career path. I have experience studying for the PCAT and the GRE and am able to recommend tips on how to go about studying for these exams and what materials might be good resources to use. I can help you brainstorm your college personal statements or proofread one you have already written. Don't hesitate to contact me if you need help with preparing college applications, personal statements, choosing a college, counseling, and any information in general pertaining to college.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an abundance of experience working with K-6th grade students in a variety of subjects. I have worked with students one on one at a local elementary school in order to help them improve reading, writing, and math skills. I also have a younger sister and two cousins whom I have helped with homework and studies since the day they stepped into a classroom.
I greatly enjoy working with this age group because I love kids! The most important aspect in working with this age group is making lessons fun, interesting, engaging, and applicable to real life. These are all qualities I incorporate in my lessons.

Physiology

Physiology is one of my most favorite subjects and I have several years of experience tutoring high school and nursing students in this subject. Taking several physiology classes at USC and UCLA has greatly reinforced my knowledge and understanding in this subject and I would like to pass that on to you. Physiology can be difficult for students due to the amount of material that gets covered; however, I can help you gain a deeper understanding of the concepts, and this will make it easier to remember the vast amount of information.

If you need help in physiology and are willing to do your part, I can help you be successful in this subject!

Very skilled tutor.

My son is ADHD and Ani's handling of him is amazing. I know a teacher with training in the field and Ani is comparable. She has a natural aptitude and I agree her patience is remarkable. The work she did with my son was noticeable in his classroom within a week. She is a gentle girl and my son loves to work with her. He just responds to her and it is incredible to me how she gets him to sit down i
