About Ela

I have a doctorate degree from the University of Jena, Germany, from the faculty of Biology and thereafter worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Bronx, NY, and of late at RPI in Troy, NY. In addition to research, I have taught students and mentored undergraduate and graduate students. My goal is to simplify the scientific concepts so that it can be accessible to general public and as well as elicit interest of K-12 grade students in STEM fields.

I immensely enjoy sharing of knowledge and the excitement the field of science brings with it. So my style of teaching reflects this - I get the students curious and make them feel the wonder and awe of biological sciences and learn by asking questions. Children and young adults are curious by nature and love asking questions - so when they learn by asking questions, they end up learning in the most natural way.

I have extensive knowledge (both theoretical and practical application) in the field of biology as I have been working in the academic research setting. Besides teaching the basic concepts I am also looking forward in helping students with their science projects and show them the way how scientific research works.

Please do contact me so we can discuss what are your expectations out of me as a tutor and we can discuss how to plan and proceed. The process of learning is a beautiful one and with proper communication we can make it very effective. I charge $65/hr in person and $50/hr for online help.
