I am a dedicated teacher and mentor motivating students with my experience in science, math, and lifelong learning! I bring my diverse experiences in teaching undergraduates, high school students, and even research to drive thinking, discussion, and learning. I earned a PhD in Biochemistry with a Nobel Laureate and have taught college level chemistry courses.

In tutoring, I emphasize understanding the fundamental concepts and use the Khan Academy materials to reinforce materials from sessions. I'm a big fan of using puzzles (especially in Organic Chemistry) to teach critical thinking.

I love engaging young people who have a furtive interest in learning and advancing their skills in academic skills and transferable skills! It brings me great joy to watch a student grasp a concept and excel! I continue to improve my presentation skills by practicing Public Speaking as well as being a civic leader in the community. I've been a speaker at community events and larger gatherings, as well as having excellent experience in presenting scientific material at international conferences.

I have worked with several continuing learners of all age groups in advancing computer skills, writing skills, and life coaching.
I hope that I can help you or your student advance in any of the following areas.

Biology, pre-Algebra to AP Calculus, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, ACT Math/Science, SAT Math, Chemistry Lab Skills, Physical Chemistry (Quantum), GRE test prep, MCAT Chemistry. JAVA, R, Python

PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT: Public Speaking, Speech Writing, Life Coaching (Certificate in Coaching)

Hello, I'm a Toastmasters International Member and I've conducted 2 Youth Leadership Programs for Middle and High School Students sponsored by Toastmasters Club 5759 in Strongsville, OH as well as participating weekly for the last 2 years in this club. I've also attended the local Toastmasters District 10 Conferences. I've completed my first level of public speaking accomplishment at Toastmasters: Competent Communicator Certification. To complete this I have given 10 speeches in areas like "Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.'s shared Ideas and Ideals," "It'll be just 1 minute: Using journaling to become more mindful," "The Ice-breaker: Embracing the Nerd I Am." Thanks. -Sujata

Biology

My PhD was in the field of chemistry and Biochemistry. I've taken courses in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, and Computational Biology, in addition to basic Biology courses. I have worked with living biological cells and my thesis topic was observing the effectiveness of the cellular uptake ("eating") system and how we could trick cancer cells to "eat" cancer killing drugs.

Biochemistry

I have a doctoral degree in Chemistry and Biochemistry. I've spoken and published on topics in biochemistry at the American Chemical Society Conference in 2010 in Boston, MA. Additionally, I've been a founding member of a startup for which I co-invented a biochemistry-based technology.

Organic Chemistry

I taught two organic chemistry labs at UCSD in addition to working in an organic laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University. Additionally I received a B in organic chemistry I and an A in organic chemistry II while at CMU. Also I've taken bio-organic chemistry. I have publications verifying my organic chemistry work in lab. I organized quizzes and tests for Organic Chemistry lab as well as led recitation for that class. My most memorable and challenging question for my students was an intramolecular fisher esterification reaction using a 5-carboxy pentan-1-ol. They still write me about that one.

Friendly, helpful tutor!

My daughter has anxiety and had no problem working with Sujata on resuming pre-calculus lessons via Khan Academy. Sujata was friendly and helpful. Looking forward to more lessons!

Tutor responded:

Joan, your daughter is bright and clever. I'm glad I could make her feel comfortable, while still challenging her in learning. Looking forward to continuing to work with her and you!

Super Tutor

Sujata is wonderful. We highly recommend her. She coached our daughter on science and presentation skills. She has great insight and knows how to work with young people. She is very enthusiastic and friendly.

Peter, 2 lessons with Sujata

Excellent Tutor!

Sujata has been working with my 10th grade daughter for 6 weeks on Hon. Chemistry and AP Government NSL. We have been seen my daughter’s progress. She has a great way of explaining and taking time to go over the material until my daughter understands the concept. She is helping my daughter to gain confidence. We would definitely recommend Sujata. Thank you again.

So patient and extremely knowledgeable

Sujata has been working with my 11th grade daughter for two weeks and I am starting to see results already!! Her patience in explaining and taking the time to go over material as needed is much appreciated. She had a great way of explaining things and helping my child excel. Thanks Sujata!

Tutor responded:

Thanks for your thoughtful comments, Melissa. I look forward to working with your daughter each week and am grateful that you have trusted my guidance. She's a great young lady with big goals and she knows that with her self-effort she will achieve!

Really connected with my teen

Sujata worked with my 15-year old daughter on her Honors Geometry. She reviewed some common mistakes she was making and taught her some tricks to avoid those mistakes.

Debbie, 2 lessons with Sujata

Excellent, highly recommend

She tutored me in Chemistry, and gave me her full attention throughout the entire sessions. She had a very good way of explaining things and she wouldn't give up until I got the concepts. I would definitely recommend her, as I had a great experience and will definitely be using her in the future.

Challenging concepts are a breeze thanks to Sujata

Sujata's approach to tutoring is special. She has a knack for taking complex topics and distilling them to the essential ideas, making previously challenging concepts manageable. Initially, I saw biochemistry was a daunting course, however with Sujata's assistance, I have been able to get ahead in my course with a much deeper understanding of the material in comparison to my classmates. As an instructor, she knows when to be teach and be authoritative, but also when to take a step back and allow the student to come to an understanding on their own. Mastering this balance is what separates good tutors from great ones, and there is no doubt in my mind that she falls into the latter category. I highly recommend Sujata as a tutor.

Scott, 10 lessons with Sujata

Great first session

Very professional and knowledgeable. Although only the first meeting, our daughter is excited about her prospects to really grasp the material. She found Sujata easy to work with, good with explanations, and completely at ease with the material.

David, 6 lessons with Sujata

She is the best

She explains every thing in very easy way. Starting from the very beginning point she'll make you understand your classes.
