About Shilpa

If you are interested in a tutor who is friendly, caring and has a supportive approach, then please contact me. My aim is always to raise the achievements of my students beyond their own expectations with challenging and rewarding lessons. I will also try to make sure that learning takes place in a relaxed but studious situation.

I hold three Masters degree in scientific fields such as Microbiology, Biotechnoloy and Healthcare Management from reputable universities in the US. I am originally from India who came to the US for higher education and been here for almost 20 years. Whatever I have achieved is on my own terms through pure hard work and dedication to what I do, and hence I know the value of quality teaching. I have been in teaching assistant in graduate schools for undergraduate and graduate level courses and also did tutoring while I was in India for elementary level kids. I scored highly on TOEFL when I was applying for graduate schools in the US. I am also proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint. I have used these applications vastly throughout my professional career.

I have a elementary age daughter and I tutor her regularly. She is excelling in her school, is a part of the gifted program and ready to skip a grade. I can teach students tailored exactly to what he/she requires. I will discuss the needs of the students carefully and aim to build their confidence in the subject. I find that practice in exam techniques invariably helps to rapidly improve grades. I am currently available in the evenings and weekends and ready to travel up to 10 miles for tutoring needs. However would I prefer to teach in the Westlake public library during library hours if such an arrangement can be worked out with the student.
