About Priya


Bio

My name is Priya Nandy. I graduated summa cum laude with a BS in Biology from Case Western Reserve University. Currently, I am a 3rd year medical student at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.
Why is Tutoring Important to Me: I've experienced confusion in class and needed extra help. Tutors were very helpful as a sounding board - to bounce ideas off of and clarify the concepts in my own words. I found the subjects I enjoyed the most were the ones that I could engage with and freely discuss....

My name is Priya Nandy. I graduated summa cum laude with a BS in Biology from Case Western Reserve University. Currently, I am a 3rd year medical student at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.
Why is Tutoring Important to Me: I've experienced confusion in class and needed extra help. Tutors were very helpful as a sounding board - to bounce ideas off of and clarify the concepts in my own words. I found the subjects I enjoyed the most were the ones that I could engage with and freely discuss.
How I am As a Tutor: My goal is to recreate the joy of learning I experienced when I mastered a subject for you, my student. I will help you assess where you may be having gaps in understanding a subject, tailor lessons towards your needs and learning style, review material based on lessons I create (with reference to any material you provide) and practice questions. I will also work to develop a personalized schedule of studying and practicing so you can reinforce the knowledge and stay on top of your goals. I want you to develop the skills and learn the concepts so you can confidently answer the questions on test day!
My Tutoring Experiences: I tutored in high school and college. In college, I volunteered to tutor students from elementary school up through high school on Saturday mornings, helping with homework and test prep. During lessons I emphasized the fundamental concepts and worked through problems featuring those concepts, so students had the confidence and understanding needed to answer questions by themselves. I also worked as a college Peer Tutor - specializing in Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Statistics.
Goals For tutoring on Wyzant: I want this to be a student-centered experience. I am open to incorporating outside resources into the lessons I create. I will do my best to respond to any questions, requests, etc as fast as possible and accommodate requests in terms of scheduling lessons and pricing. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

I have studied Biology for many years (Honors Biology, AP Biology, college degree, and medical school), so I know the content very well. I have also served as a biology tutor for 3 years - working on concept explanations, homework problems, and reviewing exams. Biology classes I have tutored for include: Intro Bio and Evolution, Genetics, Microbiology, Cell and Molecular, Human Biology, Anatomy, etc. I specialize in human biology concepts -- not plant biology.

Test Preparation

MCAT,

MCAT

I am a current medical student who has taken and passed the MCAT as well as USMLE Step 1. I have 1 year experience tutoring for the MCAT, but I mainly excess at tutoring the science sections (eg. Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Psychology). With my experience taking MCAT and USMLE I can provide many application examples which connect content with medical conditions. Additionally, I have many test taking tips and study tips. I provide lessons on content I create from MCAT resources.
