About Alisha

I have a bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering. Chemical Engineering is often called jack of all trades engineering especially due to the almost universal potential for chemistry to be applied in a chemical setting, so I have thorough knowledge of basics and advanced chemistry. My specialized courses were chemical process control; chemical reaction engineering; environmental sciences; process dynamics control; thermodynamics; and polymer sciences.

My experience as a Process Engineer in an Indian Oil Refinery gave me the opportunity to use my knowledge in practical terms, but my love and passion for teaching persuaded me to take up chemistry (organic, inorganic, general) and other engineering courses in my privately owned coaching institute in India. I have over two years' experience as a Chemistry Teacher, teaching over 50 students the basics of chemistry. I have always prided myself on being able to connect with the students by making Chemistry fun for them, and thus, interesting to learn about. Besides Chemistry, I believe Mathematics is a part of everyone's life. Every student should experience the thrill of mathematical discovery. Every teacher can appreciate the elegance of a great mathematical insight. The power of mathematics is part of our shared human inheritance. I also offer tutoring services in algebra 1,2; Pre calculus, calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry and SAT math. My experience in tutoring Maths have led me to compile my own practice sheets in each topic that has helped the students in so many years.

My teaching philosophy is straightforward: teach your students as you would want to be taught - with enthusiasm, and with a passion for the subject combined with respect and understanding for the student.I look to bring this unparalleled love for teaching chemistry and Maths to the students of WyzAnt.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I'm a chemical engineer and well equipped with the knowledge of basic high school and college level chemistry. Organic chemistry is the science of designing, synthesizing, characterizing, and developing applications for molecules that contain carbon. Also, organic chemistry is a wonderful blend of what's known, what's not yet known, and how to apply this information to discover new knowledge, and that's what makes it a very interesting subject.

SAT Math

I have been tutoring SAT maths for quite sometime now, it's an easy concept based math test. My approach of tutoring starts with the complete understanding of the student's weaknesses and strengths. I emphasise more on the basics as I believe that sets the foundation for any subject. My way of tutoring is very interactive and it's a two way process.

Very patient. — I am a returning student and hadn't had chemistry in over decade! I found Alisha's name searching on WyzAnt and didn't know how this was going to turn out; I figured I would give it a try. Alisha was very patient and did all she could to help me understand what I was learning, while encouraging me to believe in myself during those times when I became discouraged. I ended up with an "A" in the clas ...
