About Sriram

I love being able to convey ideas that I have assimilated and get a sense of satisfaction from doing so. This pretty much explains my enthusiasm for teaching. As a bachelor's student, I used to volunteer with a non-profit organization to teach math and science subjects to high school students. That experience pretty much defined and shaped my interest in academic teaching, which was furthered by my experience as a TA when pursuing my Ph.D at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Although I only taught a lab course, I used to routinely invite students and help them with related mainstream courses. I was awarded a Milton E. Mohr University fellowship as a recognition for my exceptional performance as a TA.

I am well trained in biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, molecular biology and related subjects. I have the practical research experience to back up my knowledge in these areas. Having been a senior researcher and trained so many students in a laboratory setting for conducting scientific research, I have found interactive tutoring to be very effective when explaining concepts. I love to ask questions and give step wise clues to have my students get to the answers.

I am most interested in the ultimate goal of students understanding. And so I have had to slow down several times, and go the other direction as well, to keep them challenged. I am always open to newer methods of teaching and have lately taken a liking to using short online videos for explaining some basic concepts. I am usually flexible with time and don't mind going over time when explaining something. As for cancellation/re-scheduling, I would prefer a 12-hr notice.

I currently work as a research scientist. I am available for tutoring after work hours (say between 6 and 10 in the night) Monday through Friday, and for a few hours on Saturday and Sunday (PM).

I look forward to enriching my own learning experience via tutoring students who may needs some help in my areas of expertise.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biochemistry

I have a Ph.D degree in Biochemistry. During graduate school, I was a teaching assistant for 2 Biochem courses. I was recognized for my Biochemistry teaching skills with a distinguished fellowship award. I have authored several manuscripts in the area of Biochemistry.

Genetics

Genetics was one of my main subjects when doing my masters and my masters thesis project involved a hardcore genetic system - Isolation of negative dominant mutants of Gals3p in Sacharomyces cerevisiae. I have also studied and applied Genetics during the course of getting my Ph.D degree. My Ph.D thesis project involved studying structure-function analysis of Rubisco protein in Chlamydmonas. I have done matings and progeny analysis as part of my thesis as well as post-doctoral work.

Microbiology

I have been working in a Microbiology department/laboratory for the past 10 years. I have extensive experience growing microbes and learning various techniques pertaining to microbiology. I have attended several meetings specific for microbiologists and have co-authored manuscripts in this area.
