About Priya


Bio

Teaching is an art, and a good teacher always listens. As an adjunct professor in the Biology Department at NVCC (Manassas, Annandale, Alexandria) I teach college level Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Microbiology both as in-class and online formats. I have listened to many students who say they understand the subject matter, yet have trouble on tests and exams. The problem is biology and other such sciences have a language of their own.

Teaching is an art, and a good teacher always listens. As an adjunct professor in the Biology Department at NVCC (Manassas, Annandale, Alexandria) I teach college level Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Microbiology both as in-class and online formats. I have listened to many students who say they understand the subject matter, yet have trouble on tests and exams. The problem is biology and other such sciences have a language of their own. My teaching philosophy as a professor and a tutor is to "keep it simple" by giving "bite size information that is readily digestible" and connecting them to the expected scientific language. I help my student's understand by using lots of examples, real world scenarios, appropriate video sources, smart board, and other visuals. A lot of mentoring is active conversation, which helps stimulate critical thinking and fosters learning. As a volunteer parent I enjoy helping elementary students with their sciences, English reading, writing and vocabulary as well. I am firm believer that everyone can learn, no matter what their level of understanding. The joy on a child's face when they "Really Get It !" is priceless. This is why I became a tutor.

A Medical Technology undergrad at VCU, I have always been fascinated by the world of microbes. My paper on MRSA was rated "Best" by my professors. I was given an award of Excellence in Microbiology for my class at graduation. I have a Masters degree in Anatomy & Physiology from the Medical campus of VCU and a published dissertation. In my spare time, I love to read and keep current with new biological research.

As an instructor, I understand the need of being available for student needs, so rest assured that I will do the same for your child. Your student can email me with their questions and I will respond in a timely fashion. Learning is a lifelong journey and it helps to have support along the way. I would truly love to guide your student on their journey through their studies.

I prefer to teach online, however if you live cl

I have taught 100, 200 and 300 level biology course in college. Often my non STEM students are required to take a STEM lecture/lab course. I find inventive ways to teach these students, while keeping the required rigor of the course for those whose track is in the STEM fields.

Very helpful to my daughter for Anatomy!

Priya was punctual, responsible and very helpful to help my daughter prepare for her Anatomy test. Would definitely recommend her and will use her again.
