**Summer projects for students interested in Artificial Intelligence and Health Care**

I’m passionate about science and find it very rewarding to nurture students’ curiosity and interest in their natural world. My primary objectives are:

1. To inculcate good study habits and improve test taking strategies.
2. To identify academic weaknesses and tailor courses to students' needs.
3. To enhance intuitive understanding of all the diverse scientific facts so students are no longer intimidated or bored by concepts.

I try to foster an exploratory atmosphere where students feel comfortable asking questions and sharing their thoughts. I believe in conceptual learning and strive to make connections between abstract theory and real-life applications. I do NOT believe in mere transference of facts to passive students. I will NOT make you memorize random facts but present the information in an integrated, coherent form.
I always bring plenty of worksheets and multiple choice questions of the complexity level you will actually encounter in your exams. This is specially true for the redesigned AP Biology and AP chemistry exams.

I have excelled in diverse courses during my Bachelor's, Master's and Ph.D studies, receiving amongst the highest GPA scores. I have a particularly strong foundation in Biochemistry, Genetics, Immunology and Microbiology. I have experience teaching SAT II, AP level and college biology and chemistry.

Currently, I am tutoring high school and College students in AP Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry, Physiology, AP Chemistry and Honors Chemistry. I'm also mentoring students in developing research proposals/projects for science competitions/fairs. I've coached four students who were all USA Biology Olympiad finalists in 2013 , 2014, 2015 and 2016. They went on to secure admission at Harvard University and MIT. Previously, I have served as a teaching assistant in several graduate level courses. I have led small group discussions with first year graduate students in Introductory Immunology. I've delivered lectures to a class of 20 first year medical students in different concepts of clinical Biochemistry. I have also enjoyed the opportunity to mentor an undergraduate student in hands-on science at my laboratory at Stanford University.

I work at Zoic Capital, Venture Capital firm as a Research Analyst where I source and evaluate new investment opportunities in Life Sciences.

I welcome gifted students who are preparing for Science fairs, Olympiads or College courses to join during summer. This summer I am teaming up with a Machine learning professional to develop exciting science projects for students. Here is a synopsis: This course provides the necessary foundation to do an Artificial Intelligence project. We will complete two group projects within this 8 weeks program (10 weeks with a 2 weeks July break). It is meant for high schoolers planning to do AI-based bio apps in their senior year, as their extra-curricular projects. In this course, the students will learn the nuts and bolts of Deep Learning, how it's different from Pattern recognition and Machine learning, the various applications of AI, how it can be used for diagnosis of health conditions based on automated image analyses. We will also introduce the architecture and algorithms. The students will work on an actual problem - diagnosing breast cancer from biopsy samples of 700 women based on 9 features. This problem has been simplified by already assigning the appropriate weights to the classifiers. However, students will still learn how to construct the Neural network and tweak the conditions to increase efficiency of prediction. In the second more complex problem, students will use computer vision to correctly identify the type of human blood cell from a sample of several different cells in whole blood. This is an open challenge on Kaggle and students will have an opportunity to compare their algorithms with the solutions submitted by advanced researchers. For this we have rented a very high-end machine from Amazon and students will also have a go at it. We are trying to give them a feel for the process rather than mire them with the complicated math and computation. By the conclusion of this course, students will be ready to write about their insights from these projects in their college essays.

Knowledgeable and patient

Jyoti is very knowledgeable and patient! While going over the study material, Jyoti makes a point to ensure the student have a solid grasp of the material. She will spend more time on area the student needed help the most...very efficient use of time.

Ben, 1 lesson with Jyoti

knowledgeable tutor .

She is very knowledgeable and patient tutor. She is very well organized. After finishing her lesson, she came up with a plan for future. My daughter likes her very much and looking forward to have more lessons with her

Mali , 3 lessons with Jyoti

Professional, effecient, knowledgable, warm, friendly

My daughter warmed up to Jyoti immediately. Jyoti is knowledgeable about the sciences and provides a lot of instruction. Jyoti builds confidence in students by conveying to the student what they know and understand. This leaves room to discuss what still needs to be learned.

Exceptional Tutor!

Jyoti is very knowledgeable and provided exactly what my son needed to prepare for the Biology Olympiad. She is always responsive and supportive! Jyoti was more than happy to work with his time constraints and went above and beyond to make sure he understood the material. She answered all his Biology questions quickly and thoroughly. Overall my son had a great experience and I would recommend her to anyone who needs help in Biology and Biology Olympiad.
