« Perfect! Very structured in her presentations and gives detailed explanations along with examples to strengthen comprehension of the subject at hand. She's also very patient and engages in personal 1-on-1 learning experiences. Akansha really is also very helpful and gives feedback on homework questions as well as improvising questions to help students have a better grasp of the subject as a whole and not only of its part. Great tutor and would certainly recommend her! »

PhD Chemist with 5 years of experience in teaching General and Organic Chemistry

Methodology

I use powerpoint to prepare lessons as well as whiteboard to solve and discuss problems in class . I prefer keeping classes interactive in order to ensure engagement of students.

Background

I recently finished my PhD in Chemistry. During my PhD studies, I worked as a TA for General and Organic Chemistry. As a TA, I have first hand experienced the difficulties students often face in Chemistry courses. I believe with my 5 years of experience as Chemistry Instructor, I can help in making chemistry courses more pleasant for you.

Perfect! Very structured in her presentations and gives detailed explanations along with examples to strengthen comprehension of the subject at hand. She's also very patient and engages in personal 1-on-1 learning experiences. Akansha really is also very helpful and gives feedback on homework questions as well as improvising questions to help students have a better grasp of the subject as a whole and not only of its part. Great tutor and would certainly recommend her!
