To promote students' interest and learning, I use visual tools and emphasize practical applications of the course. I incorporate videos to teach different chemical processes such as acid-base reactions and chemical equilibrium.
To keep students engaged, I use humor and story-telling. I believe that the students learn best when their minds are relaxed. While teaching difficult concepts, I use humor which helps make content memorable and the course enjoyable.
To include all students to learn together as a team, I use hands-on activities in class.
My first introduction to teaching was as a Lecturer in Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences where I designed and lead "Organic chemistry" and "Medicinal chemistry" courses. I also taught Physical chemistry as a Lecturer in Akal College of Pharmacy. During my PhD, I spent four semesters as a teaching assistant for Introduction to Chemical Analysis and Organic Chemistry laboratory courses and one semester as a recitation assistant for Introduction to Modern Chemistry course. In this capacity, I worked one-on-one with students and trained them in resolving organic synthesis problems using chemical analysis. I also co-taught weekly 3-hour lab sessions and trained students in applying technical skills in lab. My lab classes included short lectures, quizzes, hands-on experiments, discussions and I allotted time for questions and "think-pair-share" activities. As a teaching assistant and recitation assisstant at Carnegie Mellon University, I took distinct trainings to equip myself with skills necessary to lead a lab section and recitation.
During my training at Yale, I explored and honed my teaching skills by participating in mentoring activities and teaching workshops. To enhance my pedagogical skills, I took a course on Theory and Practice of Scientific Teaching for life scientists offered by the Center for Teaching and Learning at Yale. During this course, I learned several strategies to promote student participation in class, to develop effective assessments and to teach inclusively. As a teaching fellow in Foundations in Cell Biology course at Yale, I independently designed and conducted weekly one-hour discussion sections, graded students' weekly homework, designed exam questions and graded exams.
After a bachelors degree in Pharmacy and a Master's in Pharmaceutics from India, I have done a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh.
I have taught analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry and medicinal chemistry courses for four semesters as a lecturer in India.
As a graduate student teaching assistant at Carnegie Mellon University, I have taught Lab I: Intro to Chemical Analysis in Fall 2008, Lab II: Organic Synthesis and analysis in 2009 and Spring 2010.
As a recitation assistant at Carnegie Mellon University, I have taught Intro to Modern Chemistry I course in Fall 2010.
I have been a Scientific Teaching Fellow at Yale in 2018.
I have been a Teaching Scholar for Foundations in Cell biology course at Yale in Spring 2018.
