I got my PhD from the University of Pennsylvania studying Biology and now I am a postdoctoral researcher at Georgetown University. I was a regular Teaching assistant in my department at Penn teaching BIO 101 and 102 introductory Biology courses to a class of 20 undergraduate students. I have 5 years of experience teaching in the department and have tutored students for multiple courses.
My proficiency lies in teaching any level of undergraduate biology course with special emphasis on genetics and molecular biology. I have excellent teaching reviews from my students and have been actively involved in mentoring students as well.
My teaching mantra is to make the students understand the basic concepts and let them build their knowledge on their own. According to me, the way to tackle any problem is to break into smaller steps and begin with the smallest ones first. Active learning techniques are stressful initially but go a long way in developing a sound foundation for understanding and independent thinking.
My strength lies in the fact that I am very patient with my students. Learning is not an easy process but once it is mastered then my teaching method will be extremely fruitful. Constant encouragement and free thinking along with focus on gaining knowledge is my teaching strategy.

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.
Biological anthropology is the branch of anthropology that deals with physical development of the human species. The key study areas in biological anthropology include human genetics, anatomy and paleoarchealogy.
It deals with the understanding of human migration and trying to draw parallels with how it has influenced human evolution. By looking at fossil records and physical traits present in different human populations an evolutionary history of home sapiens can be traced and studied.
