I have a PhD in Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine from Rutgers University, and I have been teaching at a public high school for the past 9 years. I have years of experience teaching Honors Biology, AP Biology and college-prep Chemistry. I am a certified teacher and nothing gives me more joy than coming up with various strategies to help students understand material effortlessly. I believe in breaking down complex concepts into simpler, easily understandable and retainable content while still maintaining their depth and accuracy. I am also into connecting content with real-life applications which makes students appreciate concepts at the big-picture level. My experience in teaching AP Biology is definitely an asset to any student entrusted under my care. I will not only help them with the topics they find difficult but also with planning and pacing of the whole AP Bio curriculum along with test-taking strategies. Teaching is way more than just a profession for me- the reward and satisfaction that comes out of student success is beyond expression.
If you are confused with what you are learning in your Biology class and cannot make sense out of all the material covered or if you are questioning the practical application of a certain topic in biology and would love to gain useful and effective test-taking skills, please schedule a lesson with me and clear the fog.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Dr Smita has been an excellent Biology tutor for our daughter. She is not only knowledgeable in the subject but also very good at delivering the lessons in a manner that can be absorbed well by the student. She takes the time to review the subject topics and plans the lessons at the right pace to maximize student benefit from the session. She is also accommodative of upcoming student tests and tries her best to reschedule the sessions as needed to prepare the student for success. Highly recommend Dr Smita for tutoring.

A great teacher I have ever met

I originally could not have any confidence in biology because I felt Biology really hard. However, by learning with Ms. Smita, I gradually become interested and confident in learning this subject because she always encourage me to try and not to worry about whether it is correct or wrong. Ms. Smita also has efficient communication with me and always patiently listens to what I said! Ms. Smita can adjust her teaching based on student’s level. She decides what to teach according to the student’s background knowledge and level rather than simply following standard curriculum! Overall, I really like Ms. Smita’s classes and I really enjoy the learning time with her!

Amazing tutor

She was very encouraging throughout the entirety of the session and made sure that I understood everything that we went over. I really felt as if I had a judgment-free space and that I could learn with someone who was patient enough to work with a student like me.

Knowledgeable and sharp

Smita has been tutoring my son in AP biology. She comes prepared, explains the topics clearly, and is patient. Her teaching is interactive and she covers as much material as possible, yet at his speed. It's been a great supplement for my son and he'll continue meeting with her until he's taken the exam.

Smita's Tutoring

She was an excellent tutor who went in-depth with topics in biology in a short amount of time. She gave me ample information in a short period so I was familiar with biological concepts and well-rooted in them so I could apply them in the future. If you need some quick concept review and you don't have much time, I highly recommend Smita because she will help you get those basics in a simple and easy way to remember!

Fantastic teacher!

Amazing tutor! Patient, knowledgeable and kind. Helped my son get ready for a test by covering the basics before jumping into the harder content. My son felt much more confident in the content by the end. Thank you Smita!
