I teach chemistry at community colleges part-time and tutor high school students especially AP Chemistry and IB Chemistry. I have a Ph.D. in Chemistry from University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. My aptitude for teaching became evident when I was a teaching assistant, while also pursuing my doctoral degree. I have 5 years experience teaching at community colleges in Texas and Bellevue. I enjoy teaching at community colleges because of the smaller student teacher ratio relative to big universities. At this level the teacher can interact with the students and make a difference.

I find teaching challenging and rewarding. As a teacher I foster intellectual curiosity in my students while also motivating them. I aim towards improving the studying methods of individuals and develop their interest in the subject.

Students can be best guided to start thinking as scientists in their primary years of education. Hence, it is crucial that they obtain good training in their formative undergraduate years and I aim towards achieving that. I understand the importance of student-teacher interaction and the effect it has on the student's progress. Hence, my interest in tutoring.

Chemistry is everywhere and I am hoping to share my enthusiasm.

A great tutor!

Dr. C. really knows her stuff. Better yet, she really know how to teach. What an incredible first session! I've been struggling with chemistry all term and in an hour she gave me a new way to see what we have covered and prepared me for my final exam. I plan to see her throughout the next semester. She's great.

Engaging instructor!

A gifted teacher who loves her subject matter and is able to individualize her instruction to meet her student's learning needs. Very organized, well-prepared, communicative, and enthusiastic. Very student-centered.

Thanks Natalie, this means a lot.

Great Tutor!

Annapurna, or Dr. C, has been an amazing tutor. She makes concepts very easy to understand. She can take 1 week's worth of lectures and teach you all the concepts in 45 minutes! I was struggling in my college chemistry class, but now after Dr.C 's help, the professor regularly request me to assist during lectures and work example problems on the board. Thanks to Dr.C, I will be passing my Engineering Chemistry class this quarter with flying colors.

Thank you for your kind words, Samantha.

Explains the concepts very clearly!

Annapurna has really helped my daughter understand Chemistry concepts more clearly. Just one lesson a week has made a big difference in her understanding, anxiousness about the subject, and preparation for tests. Thank you so much Anna for your time and help!

Excellent tutoring experience.

Annapurna has been a wonderful chemistry tutor for my son. Thorough and an expert in her field, she has given my son the ability to better understand the subject and further strengthen his knowledge and confidence. Highly recommend!

Very knowledgeable and good teacher

Anna came to the rescue for some last minute tutoring for my son with his AP Chemistry class. He had fallen behind and needed help. I liked Anna's profile and thought she would be a good fit for my son. He said she was clear and concise in her instruction. She made it easy for him to learn the material presented. He said he wished his teacher was as clear in his teaching as Anna is in her teaching style. She gets rave reviews!

Great tutor!

Doctor C is a great tutor, very patient and easy to contact! My daughter feels like she has improved quite a lot in her study habits and in chemistry, she happy to be ahead of the class!

Excellent Chemistry Teacher!

Annapurna is a great Chemistry teacher who truly understands the process of teaching. She views each student individually and tries to understand the student in order to properly accommodate them according to their needs. She not only makes Chemistry seem more palatable, but actually approachable and fun with her enthusiasm and encouragement. Her method of explaining even the toughest concepts is amazing. My child seems more confident about AP Chemistry and actually looks forward to her next session with Annapurna. I would highly recommend her!
