About Alisha


Bio

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.

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.

Organic Chemistry,

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.

She knows her topic very well! Very knowledgeable!

Math, Algebra 2. She helped my son with Math quiz review. I wasn't sure about online tutor because I never tried it, but it was very good and manageable. She was on time and I liked the all the procedure.

Hanna, 1 lesson with Alisha

Great first lesson!

She seemed extremely well prepared. We are looking forward to more lessons with Alisha. She was also flexible with our schedule. She was personable and provided my daughter with essential information to help her succeed in chemistry.

Shirin, 7 lessons with Alisha

Extremely helpful and prepared tutor

Alisha did a great job working with my daughter for Algebra II - my daughter said that she learned so much from the first session with her, must more than from even her teacher! Alisha had practice problems and helped my daughter with current subject matter with new tools and formulas to enable finding the answer easier. I would definitely recommend Alisha B. :)

Annie, 2 lessons with Alisha

Patient and knowledgeable

Alisha has been tutoring my son in math for a few weeks now, the impact was immediate. Even my sons school math teacher called me to comment on his performances in class now. She’s patient & has great teaching methods.

Tijan, 16 lessons with Alisha

Great tutor for Geometry!

Alisha was quick to respond to our inquiry for a tutoring lesson. Our daughter is in Honors 9th grade Geometry and really liked working with Alisha. She was very knowledgeable and worked quickly through the material which helped our daughter to cover all the material she needed to in one hour. She met with us at a public library that was very convenient to us. Subsequent to our meeting she even helped us to find another tutor on Wyzant when she was unavailable. She really goes above and beyond! She's a real asset to Wyzant and we highly recommend Alisha for all your tutoring needs!

great job. very patient

She does a great job explaining everything to my son. Is very patient with him and we’ve seen so much improvement

Shannon, 20 lessons with Alisha

Very knowledgeable and patient

Alisha helped my son with AP chemistry and had him strenghthen his knowledge and prepare for a future test. He was very happy and thankful. Will most certainly request her assistance for my son’s future tutoring needs. I highly recommend Alisha.

Maria, 3 lessons with Alisha

The right one!

Previous to joining WyzAnt, we tried a couple other tutoring sites. None worked. Alisha was our first tutor from WyzAnt and my daughter loved her! Seems that Alisha does a great job breaking down the fundamental concepts of chemistry that are necessary to becoming an all around better than average chemistry student. We are signed up for another lesson tomorrow! Thank you Alisha!

Caring essential elements of learning

Alisha teaches precal and PSAT. She is outstanding in supporting my daughter. She focuses the area what my daughter needs the most. She also discuss her thoughts with parents about what she is doing and what is necessary in the future. She is great tutor.
