About Meenakshi


Bio

I am a Molecular and Medical Geneticist from OHSU, Portland, OR and have a doctorate in Biochemistry. I have done bench research and teaching in genetics, biochemistry and chemistry for about two decades now. I have taught these subjects to both undergrad and grad students at RIT (Rochester, NY) as adjunct faculty. I have published 20+ articles in peer-reviewed journals and I love to teach. My students have ranged from 8th grade to med school.

I am a Molecular and Medical Geneticist from OHSU, Portland, OR and have a doctorate in Biochemistry. I have done bench research and teaching in genetics, biochemistry and chemistry for about two decades now. I have taught these subjects to both undergrad and grad students at RIT (Rochester, NY) as adjunct faculty. I have published 20+ articles in peer-reviewed journals and I love to teach. My students have ranged from 8th grade to med school.

I have a good grasp of the subjects and have helped all levels of students achieve their goals. My unique teaching approach keeps students interested in learning and getting good grades. Over the years of teaching, even the students who were not interested ended up loving the subjects I taught them, and went on to doctoral and medicine programs.

I am one of the best scientists to help you achieve your goals. I make the students interested in science and be the best in what they do. I make learning fun and interesting, even dreaded subjects like biochemistry.

Biochemistry

I have a doctorate in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. I did post doctorate in Biochemistry at OHSU where I discovered a novel transcription factor that I named as ZRAP. On further research, I found this gene to be important in Zn regulation (I was at the time studying Wilson's and Menke's disease). This work was published in the most prestigious Biochemistry journal called JBC Vol. 273

Genetics,

Genetics

I have 15 years of research experience in molecular and medical genetics from Oregon Health and Sciences University. I have peer-reviewed publications in this subject.
Microbiology,

Microbiology

As a Ph.D. in biochemistry, the next subject mandatory to be in the program and graduate is to take Microbiology throughout the B.S and doctorate. This includes all aspects of microbiology: medical, molecular, food etc. In addition I have done research work in pure microbiology for years and have publications in B. subtilis, V. cholerae, Salmonella and so on. In Celle, Germany, I worked with the team there to design a molecular method to detect Salmonella in poultry, Salmonella being the most common food poisoning organism.
Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

As a PhD in Biochemistry, organic chemistry is the major that we have to take from BS, MS until doctorate. I also taught organic, inorganic and PChem to undergrad and grad students (chem majors) at RIT, Rochester NY as adjunct faculty.
Physiology,

Physiology

As an MD PhD, anatomy and physiology have been part of my curriculum. In addition to being a biochemist, physiology is a strong subject of mine anyways, having done lab research for more than 15 years. In addition, I have been tutoring and teaching physiology to University students and Med students.
Zoology

Zoology

As a PhD in biochemistry, its mandatory for us to have zoology, chemistry, botany, genetics and anatomy and physiology as majors. In addition I am an MD in genetics.

Well established conceptually in the material

Working with Meenakshi has been very productive so far. Looking forward to meeting her again to finish out this term together strong ! She has helped me with clear explanations to concepts and practice problems as we will continue with PowerPoint slides she has helped students successfully in the past.

Kristen Marie, 1 lesson with Meenakshi

Fabulous tutor

Meenakshi is a very professional, well prepared tutor. She explains the work well and really helps the student distill the key concepts, the core principals and content. Additionally she is able to help with test taking and how to read the question, understand what is being asked for and direct the student. All critical for a successful interaction and outcome!

Sharron, 1 lesson with Meenakshi

Very knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Meenakshi put in 110% effort to make sure that I understood the main concepts that I needed to know for my exam. Without her help and support I would not have been able to score as well as I did. I highly recommend her!

Andrea, 1 lesson with Meenakshi

Excellent tutor!!

She goes over concepts in depth while explaining them thoroughly and clearly. Iv'e really been able to gain a deeper understanding behind the concepts in chemistry and have improved my test scores.

Wonderful To Work With

Meenakshi really knows her stuff and comes prepared! She can fill in the parts of the material that the book neglected and will create a schedule with you to cover the material that you need before exam dates.

Tricia, 3 lessons with Meenakshi

Makes difficult content easy to understand

Meenakshi is very kind and willing to help in anyway she can to ensure you understand the material. She breaks larger concepts down in a way that is helpful. She helps you identify and focus on goals of self achievement. I look forward to more sessions with her!

Knowledgeable Chemistry Tutor

Meenaskshi is a very knowledgeable chemistry tutor. She was very flexible, and she helped our son with his AP Chemistry class. I would recommend her to others, as she's patient, and easy to work with.

Fantastic First Experience

My daughter was extremely reluctant to engage a tutor, overwhelmed, feeling shy about the whole process. But, Meenakshi was fantastic for her to listen to and in just a short amount of time offered her confidence in learning biology! Thankful.

Kaylene, 2 lessons with Meenakshi

Very good tutor!

Meenakshi is very good at explaining things and does not assume that you know things. She is able and willing to over things from the start and does not make you feel stupid. She is very knowledgeable, prepared, and intelligent.
