About Saurabh

I have a Doctorate degree in Cell and Molecular Biology and have been a scientist at Harvard Medical School, Boston. Currently, I am a scientist at UC Irvine. I have been an active tutor and Teaching Assistant for many years. I was also nominated for the Best Teaching Assistant during my tenure as a Doctoral Student. I tutor different subjects of biology starting from AP Biology, Honors Biology, Accelerated Biology, College Biology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Physiology, Genetics up to grad level Cell Biology and Molecular Biology. I have also been an invited GRAND JURY JUDGE (Biology) in Science Competition Fares: Orange County Science Fair, Huntington Beach Middle School Science Fair, LA County Science Fair, California State Science Fair and ISEF (International Science and Education Fair). My students have never got a grade below A!!!

Learning is fun for me and should be fun for everyone. Although, we need to pass our grades with the highest possible scores, learning should not be a mere subject to pass tests or courses. Rather it should be presented as an interesting information which would intrigue the student more. My passion for teaching goes back to my undergraduate days when I used to teach middle school and high school kids. My love for teaching has given me immense satisfaction and gratitude in the last 15-16 years that I have actively participated in tutoring both officially and unofficially. Teaching for me is a way to channelize my knowledge into others and make them understand how it affects our everyday life.

My students have done exceptionally well in their assignments and tests and have been consistently coming back to me for Biology. I specialize in teaching concepts in a way that the student can never forget. I have always taught students using innumerable anecdotal evidence from everyday lives so that we do not memorize but conceptualize things as it happens everyday and we realize it through our acquired knowledge. It is my great privilege to share that some students are still in regular contact with me even after 10 years have passed after I stopped tutoring them. From time to time I help out students remotely with their homework, concepts and editing their scientific abstracts/proposals. In short, I love science as I am a scientist and more than that I love to share my knowledge through teaching.

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.

Genetics

Educational background included Genetics: B.S.: Human Physiology, genetics and Biochemistry. M.S. in Biochemistry and Genetics.

I've tutored Genetics to College students, and my Ph.D was in Cell and Molecular Biology which does include Genetics.

Excellent Tutor — Saurabh was excellent!!! He taught me how to breakdown words so I could understand their meaning. His tips on how to study made a big difference. I have my last final this Wednesday and even though I found him late in the course he is making a big difference to me. I appreciate his patience and genuine interest in my understanding this subject! ...
