About Nilanjana

I have a PhD in Chemistry from Tufts and many years of experience as a Research Scientist in the pharmaceutical industry.

During my graduate years at Tufts I worked as a teaching assistant for many undergraduate chemistry courses. I ran recitation sections, lab sessions, and helped students with their chemistry problems during office hours. I also taught an Organic Chemistry course at Tufts right after I finished my PhD.

When I was working as a scientist I missed working with students, and started tutoring as a pastime. I enjoyed my tutoring experience so much that I decided to become a full-time high school teacher.

I have taught AP Chemistry, College Prep Chemistry and Organic Chemistry in high school for four years now.

My goal in tutoring is to try to understand the basic challenges that the student is facing and explaining and solving the problems at a level that is easy for the student to understand. I believe that solving problems together is the best way to understand complex concepts. I always encourage my students to ask a lot of questions. I encourage them to come up with their own ways of solving problems and thinking about things. I believe that to be the best way to learn.

Very Helpful, Patient, and Thorough!

I currently go to Boston University and used Nilanjana when I was having a little trouble in that pesky organic chemistry class. Nilanjana was a great tutor and not only taught me how to solve the problems I had at hand, but taught me how to approach any type of problem and work through it in a clear way to ensure I have the correct answer. It can be stressful during tests when you are under a tim
