About Satya

I am doctorate (Ph.D) in Bio Chemical Sciences. My passions are for science, biology and chemistry in particular. Originally from India, I worked as a Research Scientist at Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai, India (This is a prestigious school like Harvard in India) where I have done extensive research as well as teaching bio sciences. Later I joined as Senior Research Associate at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), Portland where I have done extensive research studies on microbiology, bioremediation, biochemistry, environmental chemistry, molecular biology, nano-sciences etc. and also mentored and teach to many middle school and high school students during their summer internship programs at OHSU. I have published more than 25 research publications and I am very good at publishing research data in peer reviewed Journals and present at national and international conferences.

My first experience tutoring was in at my high school. I was a peer tutor in the school and helped fellow classmates with writing, Science and math. In college, I continued to volunteer as a peer tutor in general biology, Ecology, genetics, biochemistry, and general chemistry. I love to help people understand how fun and awe-inspiring new topics can be.

My tutoring methods start by finding out what the student needs help in: homework, concepts, study skills, etc. I put responsibility on the student to come to each session prepared, meaning they have an idea of what they need help with. I don't want to just briefly review everything that goes on in their class. I want to develop the concepts and skills that the student is struggling with. I like to encourage good organization, study habits, and resourcefulness. I try to integrate aspects of the students life, e.g., extra-curriculars, as analogies into the subject and try to shed light on the "real-world" context of the subject at hand. Most importantly, I want to make learning fun!
