About Anita

I have always been keen in doing research work and teaching in the field of botany. With a total of 3+ years of tutoring more than 200 students so far, for tests like SAT/ACT and college exams, I can take on almost any challenging teaching position. My extensive research into the various pedagogical styles of tutoring has helped my students a lot in the past.

My first teaching assignment was when I was in college. I taught classes for students appearing for high school exams (botany and zoology). All passed with good grades. I had taught about 15 students, all of them coming to me individually at separate times. I went on to teach my own juniors in college (subjects such as genetics, microbiology and biochemistry) to pass their semester examinations.

My forte is genetics and bio-statistics, for which I often use audio-visual tools to explain well.

I have always been fascinated by nature. It's discovery through the science subjects is enthralling to me. I like imparting excitement in a student's mind about scientific discoveries and their applications to understand Science and score well.

Almost all of my students have excelled in the SAT and ACT in the past.

I am extremely punctual, and teach keeping in mind each student's benefit and better understanding of the subject. For this, I share my lecture PPTs and assignments at the end of each class.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Well prepared and knowledgeable

I like having a tutor for accountability, like having a life coach. Otherwise I might not be as disciplined as I would like to be and then fall behind. Anita is great with keeping me on track and also explaining the complexities of microbiology to me. I wish I had found her at the beginning of my course!
