About Jyoti

**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. Apply soon!

"Well Prepared Tutor"

- Randy, Cupertino, CA on 5/2/14
Jyoti replied on 5/2/2014

I've been impressed with Robert's ability to grasp and apply concepts so quickly. While it's unfortunate that I don't have time to introduce all the new concepts/facts to him now, I would like to practice free response questions with him. If he does well on that section, I would expect him to get a 5.

He should also consider trying out the Biology Olympiad. He has an analytical brain which is always a huge plus in such exams.

Thanks!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Great Teacher

My 10th grade son had Jyoti for his AP Biology (self study). Jyoti is a phenomenal teacher and explains concept very well. My son loved her teaching. He was able to self study AP Biology with her assistance and got a 5 in the AP exam and also got 800 in SAT Bio. He was struggling with honors chemistry initially but with Jyoti's help, his score dramatically improved from borderline A- to high A+
