About Sharang

I have a passion for conveying science information in an understandable format. During undergrad, I found work designing medical diagrams, used to teach medical students at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Weill Cornell.

More recently, I have been keeping myself occupied by editing a popular science book on developmental psychology.

To get a better understanding of the prose best suited to capture the attention of contemporary audiences, I draw on the works of authors such as Steven Pinker, Michael Pollan, and Siddartha Mukherjee in order to teach scientific information in a digestible way. I attempt to visually illustrate more complex concepts, and I encourage students to so as well, as it has been demonstrated that encoding in a variety of media improves retention.

I have several years of experience as a researcher and have maintained a 3.6 Science GPA throughout my bachelor's.

I have two publications in scientific journals, and I have assisted in editing the upcoming developmental psychology book "Scienceblind", aimed to teach the general pubic about biases in our cognitive development. I have also received a perfect score in the MCAT's English/Critical Analysis section.

519 MCAT score (98th percentile), including 132 English/131 Life Sci/130 Physical Sci/126 Behavioral Sci. I use many diagrams to teach, and encourage students to use drawings of their own to encode information. I have previously illustrated anatomical diagrams for education of Cornell and MSKCC's medical students.

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.

MCAT

I received a 519 on the MCAT (98th percentile), including 132 English/131 Life Sci/130 Physical Sci/126 Behavioral Sci.

I have previously illustrated anatomical diagrams for education of Cornell and MSKCC's medical students.

I attempt to visually illustrate more complex concepts, and by encouraging students to so as well I improve their chances for success, as it has been demonstrated that encoding in a variety of media improves retention. I also use analogy to convey information in a manner which students can more easily understand.
