About Rajat

Hi everyone,

My name is Raj, and thanks for visiting my profile.

When it comes to tutoring, I've noticed that a certain category of tutors tend to serve their students best--those who are students themselves. I'm a Ph.D. candidate at Weill Cornell Graduate School, and over the years my academic path has not only facilitated a deep understanding of the basic sciences (Biology, Physics and Chemistry) but has also helped me realize the pitfalls experienced by high school and undergraduate students when it comes to these subjects. In my years of tutoring and teaching experiences, I have learned how to identify the root of a student's problem, the specific reasons behind why an individual is having trouble understanding a concept and finally, how to help them navigate those issues to succeed.

While patience is a hallmark of my teaching method, I also feel that a unless one possesses a deep understanding of a subject it is impossible to explain it to someone in a simple manner. My background is in Biology (B.S. in Neuroscience from Washington State University, B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Delhi in India and Graduate focus in Immunology at Weill Cornell School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences). However, my recent preparation for the Medical College Admission Test allowed me to re-focus on Physics and Chemistry as well. My proficiency in standardized tests has allowed me to be an effective tutor for tests like the MCAT, SAT and the GRE, and with a fair amount of teaching experience at the Undergraduate and graduate level, I am a confident that I would be the ideal tutor for your needs.

In many ways I have a unique perspective on education as I have been through the high school experience in a foreign country (India) and the undergraduate and graduate experience in the United States. I have learned that while the style of teaching varies between teachers and institutions, there are aspects to good tutoring that work everywhere. These include being patient, understanding the basics of the subject in question, knowing when to encourage students to be independent and when to offer assistance, and finally, genuinely caring for the process of education. These are the hallmarks of my tutoring style and I hope to bring this expertise to you.

I hope that you find my desire to help, and my credentials, impressive enough for your tutoring needs. If you have any questions and would like to setup a meeting or speak over the phone, please do not hesitate to get in touch through the wyzant email.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

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.

Biology

-B.Sc. In Biochemistry (University of Delhi, India)
-B.S. in Neuroscience (Washington State University)
-current Ph.D. Candidate (6th year at Weill Cornell)
-Teaching experience from undergraduate students at WSU to Graduate students at Weill Cornell.
-Prior tutoring experience through Wyzant.

Chemistry

My qualifications in Chemistry are from years spent working in various laboratory settings. I also have Bachelor's degrees in Biochemistry and Neuroscience where I picked up valuable Chemistry skills. Lastly, I am a Ph.D. candidate at Weill Cornell Graduate School involved in my thesis research on lymphoma and B-cell biology. In the lab, I utilize principles of chemistry on a daily basis for experiments and this makes me a uniquely qualified individual for teaching of the physical and biological sciences. My previous students have all commended me for my ability to explain difficult concepts and offer a viewpoint on science that allows for the a true and real understanding of the subject matter.

Genetics

I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from the University of Delhi before moving to the US to start my second undergraduate degree in Neuroscience at Washington State University. During my undergraduate education I took courses in Molecular Biology, Genetics, Cell Biology, Anatomy, Biochemistry, Neuroscience, Microbiology, Physiology and Endocrinology among many others. I recently started working on my Ph.D. at Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences and have taken a Ph.D. level course in Molecular Genetics as well.

My understanding of genetics goes beyond the basic module of 'Mendelian Genetics' that is taught in high school and colleges. My expertise is not merely theoretical as I have not only studied the subject at different points in my academic path but have also worked in labs across the country-National Institutes of Health (Bethesda, MD), Washington State University (Pullman, WA), Memorial Sloan Kettering (NY, NY), Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (New Delhi, India)-where the principles of genetics were applied by me on a daily basis for research purposes.

With my strong academic credentials and research experience in bio-medical sciences I am the ideal tutor for anyone interested in learning more about the field. Be it for a high school, an undergraduate or even a Masters student, I can provide you with a theoretical, technical or applied perspective with regards to the field in the simplest possible fashion.

If you want to know more about my background and my understanding of genetics then drop me a line and I will provide answer to any of your queries.
