About Ketki

I graduated with a B.S. in Neuroscience and will begin dental school at New York University College of Dentistry this fall. With two years of experience tutoring Biology and Chemistry I have developed effective teaching methods that consistently bring high grades for my students while inculcating good study habits in them. I have proficiently completed courses in Physiology, Microbiology, Neuroanatomy, Human Anatomy, Immunology, Molecular Biology, Ecology, Genetics at UC Berkeley and UC Riverside which has consolidated my fundamentals and given me a thorough understanding of Biology. In my time before dental school, I want to devote my time to two of my passions - Science and teaching.

Students report that they learn fast through my comprehensive notes, flow chart diagrams, animations and tests. My efficient study techniques gives students confidence in their preparation while saving them time and stress. Through years of taking competitive tests myself I have established winning test taking strategies that enhance my students' performance during tests.

Biology topics commonly covered are the following (but not limited to): Basic Chemistry (Properties of Water, Organic Molecules, Chemical Reactions in metabolic processes), Cells, Cellular Respiration, Photosynthesis, Cell Communication, Cell Division, Heredity, Molecular Biology, Evolution, Biological Diversity, Plants, Animal Form and Function, Animal Reproduction and Development, Animal Behavior, Ecology

General Chemistry topics usually covered are Chemistry Fundamentals (Density, Formula and Molecular Weight, The Mole, Empirical Formulas, Percentage Composition by Mass, Chemical equations and Stoichiometry Coefficients, The Limiting Reagent, Oxidation States), Atomic Structure, Periodic Trends and Bonding, Phases, Gases, Solutions, Kinetics, Equilibrium, Acids and Bases, Thermodynamics, Electrochemistry

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 earned a B.S. in Neuroscience in 2014 and also completed a year and a half of laboratory research in medical Neuroscience. I recently took my Dental school entrance exam (DAT) and scored above the 95th percentile in Biology. My extensive study of General Biology and advanced subjects of Biology such as Physiology, Microbiology, Neuroanatomy, Immunology, Molecular Biology, Ecology, Genetics at UC Berkeley and UC Riverside has consolidated my fundamentals while giving me a thorough understanding of Biology. As I wait to start dental school at New York University College of Dentistry this fall, I want to devote my time to two of my passions - Science and teaching. I am eager to help you achieve your goals in Biology!

Physiology

I have taken Physiology coursework at UC Berkeley and completed it with an outstanding grade. Additionally, I have been exposed to Physiology through my own lab research in medical Neuroscience and through my undergraduate Neuroscience course work at UC Riverside which I completed with excellent scores.
