Qualifications & Experience

I have a Bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and molecular biology, Master’s degree in human pathology, PhD in human pathology and post-doctoral training in molecular microbiology/ virology. Over all I have 17 years of research experience and over 10 years of teaching experience from the classroom and private one-on-one teaching to laboratory setting. I believe in students and their future and to make less enthusiastic students more enthusiastic and make them hard-working, prepare them for nothing but to “Ace” in exams, as I myself is a perfectionist and was top in academia. I have a broad understanding of scientific principles and techniques required to prepare the students in facing their examinations and for them to be eligible for various career paths. My main aim would be to instill their “inner enthusiasm and passion” through my life-long passion, love, findings and commitment for science and medicine. I will also update and bring interest of my students with the latest cutting-edge discoveries of science mainly to elevate their interest and increase the retention power of their subject matter. I will incorporate these concepts in a fun, more interesting and in a concise manner and teach them the proper strategies of studying hard to understand concepts and note preparation etc. Overall, I can educate students in the following subject areas and/or in any related areas: general biology, biological chemistry, biochemistry, nutrition, molecular biology, microbiology, virology, bacteriology, mycology, parasitology, zoology, botany/plant science, general immunology, vaccine biology, laboratory methods/research/laboratory science, scientific techniques, scientific method, infectious diseases, reproductive biology, cell biology, basics of pharmacology and drug science/metabolism, pathology (animal, human, plant and microbial) and mechanisms of human disease. Also, specialized sub-areas such as, basic forensic or related laboratory techniques, recombinant DNA/RNA/protein technology, biotechnology, plant/animal/microbial taxonomy.
