About Dharshini

My name is Dharshini, but out of convenience people usually call me Darsh or “Dee.” Please feel free to do so too! I’m of Sri Lankan background, which is an island off the southern coast of India. I was always interested in how the human body functioned, so I pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from NJIT and Rutgers. After university, I went on to pursue medicine by earning my MD from All Saints University School of Medicine. While at NJIT, Rutgers, and ASUSOM, I spent time teaching classes and tutoring students in Organic Chemistry, Calculus, Algebra, Biology, and various test preparations (SAT, MCAT, GRE, GED, and GMAT).

I have over 10 years of experience identifying students' individual learning styles and developing an action plans to guide them through the struggles they experience while trying to master a specific subject. Often, I assess what sparks a student's interest in a subject and play off those interests to fully engage them in their study plan. I strongly believe that every student learns differently, and focusing on their individual learning style leads to success.

Some people are visual and others are auditory or kinesthetic. While others are repetitive and need to read and write out what they are learning to grasp a topic. I have methods for all these different types of people. I usually try to teach a topic in at least three different ways so that the person will have the choice of what makes sense to them.

I have found that, because of big class sizes, students are only taught one way of looking at material. And, if they struggle to understand it or if their teacher is not very good at explaining the matter then they are overlooked and the class moves on. Most classes tend to build on previously taught lessons. This is how students are left behind and struggle to pay attention to something they feel they have already failed at.

But, they haven't failed. Students haven't even scratched the surface of their true potential. And, my job is to get them to realise what they are capable of. We build confidence and strengthen understanding in the subject together to the point that that the student no longer needs me. My goal at the end of the tutoring is to be ahead of the class material. And, I look forward to achieve this goal with you!

If you would like to take me on as a tutor or have any questions or concerns please feel free to e-mail or call me. Would love to hear from you and help you with your material!!

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.

Organic Chemistry

I have been teaching organic chemistry to students since college. I received A's in both my organic chemistry classes and my chemistry classes as well. Along with getting good grades I was in the honors program in NJIT due to my chemistry acuity. The student I'm teaching now through wyzant approached me and is working with me because my method of teaching is solid. He seems to understand the concept better and so is performing well above the rest of his class and will be taking orgo 2 with me as well. I would like to help other students with this subject as well.
