About Sankalpi

I am Sanki (short for Sankalpi) with a PhD in Genetics from Michigan State University and a BS with summa cum laude in Plant Biotechnology from the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka. I have been a permanent resident in the US for 12 years and have been working in sustainable energy research and education for 6+years in MO.

I hold a certificate in Scientific Teaching of Biology from Michigan State University and also take cutting edge research to high schools in MO and IL to inspire the next generation of scientists. I also conduct workshops to train high school teachers. Being an Education Programs Facilitator at the Donald Danforth Plant Science center inspired me to teach high school students and my goal is to widen the scope of science education and teach students easy ways to grasp complex concepts in biology, genetics and biochemistry.

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.

Botany

I have a BS in Plant Biotechnology and my PhD thesis research was on plant developmental biology. I have 16 years of experience in plant research. I have taught botany and plant biology for a year and have mentored undergraduate and graduate students to conduct plant research.

Genetics

I have a PhD in Genetics and have taken 800-level graduate courses in plant genetics, microbial genetics and human genetics at Michigan State University.
