About Menaka


Bio

My name is Menaka. I graduated from Northeastern University with honors and Honors Distinction, with a major in Biology and minor in Business. I have 7 years of experience tutoring friends in an informal setting. I have tutored in General Chemistry 1 and 2 as well as General Biology for non-biology majors in college. Often, these friends had to complete a science requirement for their major and needed extra help. They came to me with their notes and textbooks and we worked through concepts...

My name is Menaka. I graduated from Northeastern University with honors and Honors Distinction, with a major in Biology and minor in Business. I have 7 years of experience tutoring friends in an informal setting. I have tutored in General Chemistry 1 and 2 as well as General Biology for non-biology majors in college. Often, these friends had to complete a science requirement for their major and needed extra help. They came to me with their notes and textbooks and we worked through concepts that they did not understand during their lecture or homework problems. We also worked through practice exams and discussed tips and tricks to make taking tests a little easier. I also helped a family friend who was struggling in high school biology.

As a biology major, in addition to tutoring in Chemistry and Biology, I have had a rigorous background in both biology and chemistry. Not only have a taken classes in both areas every semester while in college, but as Northeastern student, I also have work experience in the science field. Therefore, I have to know various concepts AND how to apply them for my experiments in labs at both Northeastern and Harvard Medical School. These experience have given me a great understanding of what would be beneficial to students in both the classroom AND work environment. I have specialized in cellular biology, with a particular interest in genetics and stem cells.

I have liked STEM subjects since middle school and love to share my interest in the subject. I feel that sometimes that ideas and concepts seem daunting at first, but with the right perspective and a little guidance, anyone can learn to appreciate the forces and concepts that make our world the way it is. I want to help struggling students, or even those who want to get ahead, as much as I can. Therefore, I welcome suggestions of what the students or their parents would like to focus on (such as particular areas of confusion or specific topics of interest) so that I can make the most of my students time.

I am excited to be a part of such a vast network of shared knowledge and interests. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or if you are interested in lessons.

Patient and knowledgeable

Menaka is helping my daughter with HS Chemistry. She was patient and went over several homework problems my daughter was struggling with. She took the time to go over things step by step and then asked my daughter to show her how to approach the problem just to make sure she understood. She has helped my daughter online when she is stuck on a particular problem on short notice. We're very happy to find such a competent tutor.
