Hello, I am Alakabha and I am a physics faculty at a University where I teach physics and do research in theoretical particle physics. I did my undergraduate and masters studies from Calcutta University and Delhi University which are among the top Universities in India. I did my PhD from the University of Hawaii in theoretical particle physics. In my present position I teach all levels of physics courses and participate in research funded by several federal agencies. I have published close to 100 papers in international peer-reviewed journals. I have experience teaching undergraduate non-physics majors taking algebra based and calculus based courses as a teaching assistant at the University of Hawaii, and as instructor at the University of Hawaii, Iowa State University, University of Toronto and the University of Mississippi. I have also taught undergraduate physics majors and I have extensive experience teaching graduate courses such as quantum mechanics, quantum field theory and particle physics. My student evaluations have always been excellent. I have also tutored privately college level students in physics and calculus and high school students in math.
Based on my extensive experience working with students I have a good idea of the problems students usually have and I can address them in an effective manner. I can adjust according to the level of the student. Both weak and advanced students will benefit from my tutoring. For instance, sometimes students do not have the proper math background to solve physics problems and for such students I work on their math skills. Physics is a systematic subject and once I make the students understand the basic steps how problems are approached then it becomes easy for the students to do well in their course. I can also help students interested in advanced topics in physics such as quantum mechanics and particle physics.
I like working with students and see them succeed. Some of my top success stories involve students who came in with failing grades and ended up with A and B grades after working with me. I believe teachers can have a huge impact in a student's career and I am still in contact with many of my former students who now have successful careers as professors, doctors, dentists, lawyers, engineers etc. I myself have benefited from great teachers that I had during my student days. I am always looking forward to working with dedicated students and I hope to hear from you so we can schedule a meeting. Thank you for your time and attention.
