About Ketki

I'm currently a dental student at the New York University, College of Dentistry and received a Bachelors of Science in Neuroscience as an undergraduate. I have two years of experience helping high school and college students in Chemistry and Biology. I have successfully prepared high school students for general and Advanced Placement classes and SAT subject tests in Biology and Chemistry. My methods consistently bring high grades for my students while building good study habits, note taking and test taking skills. I have proficiently completed courses in Physiology, Microbiology, Neuroanatomy, Human Anatomy, Immunology, Molecular Biology, Plant Biology/Ecology, Genetics at UC Berkeley and UC Riverside.

Students report to learn fast through my comprehensive notes, diagrams and choice of video animations. Solving several practice questions together enhances their confidence in the subject. My efficient study techniques save students time and stress.

General Chemistry topics usually covered are Chemistry Fundamentals (Density, Formula and Molecular Weight, The Mole, Empirical Formulas, Percentage Composition by Mass, Chemical equations and Stoichiometry Coefficients, The Limiting Reagent, Oxidation States), Atomic Structure, Periodic Trends and Bonding, Phases, Gases, Solutions, Kinetics, Equilibrium, Acids and Bases, Thermodynamics, Electrochemistry.
Biology topics commonly covered are the following (but not limited to): Basic Chemistry (Properties of Water, Organic Molecules, Chemical Reactions in metabolic processes), Cells, Cellular Respiration, Photosynthesis, Cell Communication, Cell Division, Heredity, Molecular Biology, Evolution, Biological Diversity, Plants, Animal Form and Function, Animal Reproduction and Development, Animal Behavior, Ecology

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

I have a strong background in Biology through my research and coursework in general Biology and the advanced sciences - Physiology, Microbiology, Neuroanatomy, Immunology, Molecular Biology, Ecology, Genetics at UC Berkeley and UC Riverside. I have had two years of experience teaching Biology to students ranging from high school freshman to college students. I have helped students perform successfully in AP Biology and the SAT subject tests. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals in Biology.

Chemistry

I have two years of experience helping high school and college students in Chemistry. I have successfully prepared high school students for general and Advanced Placement classes and SAT subject tests in Chemistry.

Physiology

I have taken Physiology coursework at UC Berkeley and completed it with an outstanding grade. Additionally, I have been exposed to Physiology through my own lab research in medical Neuroscience and through my undergraduate Neuroscience course work at UC Riverside which I completed with excellent scores.
