I have been involved for over six years with an educational institution that nurtures over 3000 students for competitive exams. I was responsible for classroom teaching along with the development of course materials, daily practice problems, and monthly exam papers. In the course of these years of teaching Chemistry and Maths, my endeavor has been to advance an innovative and interactive teaching approach by involving students for discussions on HHMI lectures, scientific publications, and interdisciplinary science, with an underlying motive to cultivate their inclination towards natural sciences.
I have had years of teaching experience for one of the most competitive exams in India and many of my students have succeeded in those examinations.I have also been part of few start-up involving interactive education system incorporating technology for ease of learning. Most of my classes were in groups of students varying from 20-200 depending on the course. But I have always been keen on making sure every single student grasp the fundamentals really good.
Further inquisitive of knowledge thrived me to perform research over 4 years at prestigious universities like Harvard Medical School and MIT with multiple publication and conferences. These research experience provided me with the concerted focus towards the subject and in the process making me a better teacher with experimental and theoretical skills.
I plan to broaden the interest of students towards the subject with latest publication and research as the backbone of my classes. Along with helping them to envision their goal with renewed focus.
