About Sankar

I teach biology and chemistry at local Community College. My teaching style is to give a template of my method to the students; they will build their responses based on the template and I'll make sure their responses are correct. They should focus on critical thinking, not rely on spoon feeding from the teacher. That will help build their confidence and interest. Until and unless they find interest in the subject, they will be burnt out. Students should understand the basics first before they go for detail of the subject. Study in group is a great asset for the student community. I prefer group teaching rather that one-on-one even though one-on-one is not a problem for me. My logic is that in a group there is lot of interaction; different students have different queries and that makes a more complete understanding of the subject. As a teacher, I must expect students to turn in their homework and quizzes on time. Students take tests after each chapter and I expect them to perform well. Most important, I expect the parents' feedback. It is the parents who spend the most time with students and determine how much time they devote for study and how serious they are about their study. Parent-teacher interaction is very important for the students' success. I teach biology and chemistry at local Community College.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I have my bachelor's in Chemistry where organic chemistry is more than 50% of the total syllabus. I also have my master's in Biochemistry where a major portion is also organic chemistry. I teach biology and chemistry at a local Community College.
