About Chaitanya

I really enjoyed teaching anatomy and neuroscience during medical school after obtaining my undergraduate degree from UCLA. I like to communicate concepts and focus on comprehension of knowledge and how we can use this for solving problems. I like the "a ha" moment when we figure out a challenging concept or problem. Learning for me is life long and very enjoyable. I like when students see improvement in their homework, presentations, examinations, as well as receiving constructive analysis from their teachers and tutors. I also learn from others.

I enjoy being part of an academic community and sharing science concepts across multiple disciplines. Our society needs good scientists, engineers, and technically skilled youth to advance our understanding of difficult areas of research and science. I have experience tutoring Anatomy, Neuroscience at the Medical School Level. I have also helped classmates prepare for the USMLE Step 2 CS (Clinical Skills) exam during my clinical rotations.

I am looking forward to working with motivated, curious, bright, honest & hardworking students.
