"Originally from Calcutta, and have been a US resident for over 25 years. I was an ambitious student and always in the top 5% of my class. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry from Calcutta University in 1983, ranking first among chemistry majors. Subsequently, I pursued graduate work in mechanistic organic chemistry and received my Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992. I spent several years in Industry and 3+ years in different universities (Wilkes, Temple Univ, PENN) mainly teaching sophomore level organic chemistry (lab and lecture) I am skilled at spectroscopic structure elucidation and organic reaction mechanisms. I have taken Physics I, II and III (edX) & Single Variable Calculus online in the last two years.

While not a native speaker of English, I have good oral and written communication skills. I regularly help students over the Internet on Yahoo Answers.

My advice to students: "there is no substitute for hard work." However, attack problems through understanding and not memorization. Confidence can ONLY be achieved by solving many problems before exams.

In truth, high grades on a test are just high grades on a test. Success in life lies in critical thinking skills, creativity, passion, motivation and perseverance.

I work for Airgas SW, Laporte, TX as an Analytical Chemist.

I reside in Pasadena, TX and am willing to travel up to 10 miles to tutor a student.

I enjoy helping students on a one-on-one level hoping to pass on my passion and interest in the sciences to the next generation." less...
