Hi! I graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor's in Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics, and followed up with a Master's in Microbiology at SF State University. After graduating from UCLA I worked in a biotech company where I was involved in the genetics sequencing, starting from extracted DNA and working through various techniques to get the final genetic sequence of organisms. While pursuing my Masters at SFSU, I conducted my Masters thesis research on induced pluripotent stem cells at Stanford University. I recently moved to Seattle to work with a company focusing on researching the molecular pathways of the innate immune system.
In addition to college, working in biotech and academia, i've been tutoring high school math and science courses for over ten years. I have privately tutored these subjects as well as taught preview classes over the summer, supplemental classes during the school year, and preparatory classes for SATs and APs. I focus on ensuring that students understand the fundamentals so they can apply their knowledge to problems they see on homework, quizzes, and tests. Practice is key to improving speed and understanding. To help this, I supplement sessions with worksheets and practice tests to help the student better prepare for upcoming quizzes and exams. Once students are more comfortable, I encourage them to teach me or their family members the material they have learned. Teaching helps both me and the students understand what weak points we need to strengthen.
Outside of work I like to spend as much time outdoors as possible. Rock climbing, soccer, and snowboarding are my top three favorites. When the weather is not optimal, I like to spend time baking and decorating cupcakes and cakes.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Devi has been tutoring my daughter for over a year now and my daughter loves her. Does a great job of simplifying concepts and explaining them in different ways.Laura, 9 lessons with Devi
Devi is incredibly helpful!!
After a 30-second introduction Devi started right in with my daughter and was so amazing at guiding her through the homework she had been struggling with. I was surprised to see my daughter's reaction to Devi's questions and skillful direction - she reacted so positively and was able to complete many half-finished worksheets with apparent ease!!Eli, 1 lesson with Devi
Devi came to tutor my son for the chemistry subject test. She arrived on time, was very easy to talk to and quickly got to work with my son. She helped tremendously with his understanding of the topic. They came up with a great lesson plan and we will see her next week. Thanks!Anne, 1 lesson with Devi
Very helpful with AP Calculus for high school students
Very knowledgeable. Works independently with my son to set up tutoring sessions. Knows here math and science very well. Resourceful and on time. Highly recommended.Steve, 54 lessons with Devi
Great bio tutor!
Devi covered a ton of content in one session in order to prepare me for an exam. She explained difficult concepts well, and helped me strategize on how to study for my exams going forward. She even took the time to email me extra resources after our session ended. For anyone looking for a bio/sciences tutor, I'd highly recommend her!Jessica, 2 lessons with Devi
Devi P. greatly helped me with my AP Biology course. She is an excellent tutor who has thorough knowledge of the subject and made me understand the concepts really well which I could not have managed on my own. Thanks!Sunny, 2 lessons with Devi
