About Moses

I have a very diverse education comprised of several branches of sciences. My basic degree is in Physics with Mathematics and Chemistry as my ancillary subjects. I also received rigorous training in accounting and business management. I have a Masters’ degree in Advanced Physics with specializations in Solid State Physics, Optics and Astrophysics. I continued my education in the field of biophysics/biochemistry and I was awarded a PhD with specialization in Structural Biology of Plants and Microbes. My postdoctoral research at UMASS Medical School is in the field of Virology where I discovered a novel molecular mechanism utilized by the HIV virus for its maturation and survival. This discovery has now led to the design of new HIV drugs which are currently used in the clinics.

I subsequently accepted a teaching and research position at the Commonwealth Medical College where I continued my profession as a research advisor and course director. In addition to continuing my research in Virology, I also included breast cancer to my research focus to elucidate the underlying specific molecular pathogenesis that lead to tumors. I have supervised graduate research and undergraduate honors projects.
I have held leadership roles in the pharmaceutical industry for over two years. I have over 25 peer-reviewed publications in journals with high impact factors. I also have several years of experience in working closely with medical students and their challenges. I have served in various Executive Committees that oversee student recruitment and education. Therefore, I can be a major source of knowledge and career guidance to students who are considering research or medical professions.

I started my teaching profession when I was in graduate school at Indian Institute of Science where I served as a student mentor for junior graduates in the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology. This experience was instrumental to my later success as a teacher at premier medical institutions in the Nation. I have classroom teaching experience in biochemistry, biophysics, cellular basis of life, neuroscience and the molecular basis of various human diseases. I have tutored high school students, undergraduates, graduate students and professionals. I have also mentored student research projects which have been published in premier journals of International acclaim.

I have a successful record of tutoring students to envision rational thinking and fostered problem solving skills to pursue advanced careers in scientific research. I am experienced in both one-on-one teaching as well as the use of technology to provide online learning tools. In addition to tutoring students, I can also help prepare students for interviews and other such challenges. I have successfully instituted “case-based learning” throughout my teaching career where the study materials will be presented in a problem based format to facilitate quicker learning and better retention of facts. As a well-established scientist, I can also assist students with their thesis projects.

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.

Public Speaking

I have an advanced degree in science which I followed with a doctorate in Biophysics. I have learned several aspects of public speaking and had to practice the talents on several occasions in front of scholarly audience to earn my degree. I continued my career in biomedical research and science education where I supervised student research programs. I have assisted PhD students to prepare and deliver their scientific materials with utmost confidence and high levels of efficiency. This experience led me to facilitate students to prepare for public speaking. I have thus far taught over 25 students and professionals to be confident speakers and efficient communicators from a podium setup.

My teaching philosophy involves a few overarching themes. I teach students to recognize what message they are planning to deliver through their speech. I help them understand how to provide rational arguments to support their message. The rational arguments may be derived from their research outputs or from literature data. Upon assembling these data, I help them connect the data with the appropriate conclusion. Since the data and their conclusion may not always be suitable for a wide-range of audiences, I help them prepare a suitable introduction to facilitate better reception of their message.

My specific teaching style includes many of the following steps to motivate students and enhance confidence:

1. Knowledge of the subject and the audience. Never hesitate to include humor and personal stories when appropriate. This will help the speaker to get more confident and the audience will feel a better connection to the material.

2. Rehearse the speech as many times as possible. Best practice would be to rehearse in front of a mirror first and have peer sit through the speech and provide critical comments

3. Prepare for all of the possible scenarios during a speech.

4. I advise students to pause and smile when they feel like they are getting overwhelmed. This usually clears their nerves and they can continue with their speech.

5. I emphasize the student to concentrate on the message and not on the medium. If the student has enough evidence to demonstrate the message, the audience would be more impressed and the speech would be well-received. This will boost the confidence of the student significantly.
