About Venkatram

I am a retired PhD chemist from a Fortune 500 multinational company. I was an assistant professor at Tulane University for five years, before joining the industry. Thus I have experience both in academia and in industry. I have tutored pre-high school kids in math and science. My teaching philosophy is to introduce kids to think independently and understand fundamentals of science and math rather than feeding them with lots of information. My belief is once the kid understands the fundamentals then he can independently study and understand just about any field of study and he can choose the subject he loves to pursue in the future.

I have more than 30 scientific publications in peer reviewed journals and have contributed chapters to books. These books are primarily used by advanced researchers and are a compendium of the current level of knowledge in the field. Most of these publications are in the field of analytical chemistry in environmental science.

With my advanced degree and experience in research and development I am confident that I can very easily teach elementary, middle and high school level subjects in math and sciences and advanced chemistry, biology, biochemistry and physics subjects.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a PhD degree in Chemistry from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA.

I am sure with this I should be able to teach an elementary math student.

Hindi

I am from India and have studied Hindi at high school level. I also have a PhD in chemistry.

Organic Chemistry

I have a PhD in Chemistry from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA. With my advanced degree and experience in research and development I am confident that I can very easily teach elementary, middle and high school level subjects in math and sciences and advanced chemistry, biology, biochemistry and physics subjects.

Study Skills

I have a doctorate degree in Chemistry from LSU, Baton Rouge. I was a senior scientist at a fortune 500 chemical company doing research. Any science or math subject at high school level is quite simple for me. With my background my focus will be more on fundamental understanding of the concepts rather the mechanically solving problems. Once you have a clear understanding of the principles and concepts your ability to independently think and arrive at the right answers will be enhanced.
