Master's Degree in Chemistry @ Osmania University
I am really passionate about online tutoring. Other than this I love playing with kids, cooking and playing badminton with my friends. I love to travel to different places with my lovely family and friends. I’m a food lover and whenever I feel stressed or bored, I go to kitchen and try to cook different variety of foods for my loved ones.
I have been tutoring chemistry online for 5 years. I have delivered hundreds of sessions for middle school, high school and college level students from India, Us and UK according to their National curriculum. I have conducted personalized one-on-one online tutoring sessions and group sessions to help the students with their homework and concept clearing classes. I have used virtual classroom to provide audio, chat and video based tutoring sessions. Tutoring has become my passion, I love to interact with the students from all over the globe and help them with their subject needs. I always approach interactive teaching methodologies; I ensure all my sessions would be a 2-way conversation between tutor and student rather than one way communication. My philosophy of teaching has always been to try and make students love this subject (Chemistry). I do this by bringing in our daily life examples and connecting them with the topic I teach. Luckily Chemistry gives you ample scope for that. I admire the following Chinese proverb in learning process “I hear and I forget" " I see and I remember" " I do and I understand” So I believe involving the student in learning process yields better results in many ways.
Chemistry which is one of the basic sciences is having much importance in the human's life and it acts as a linkage among other branches of science. Chemistry is all about the matter and its properties, as we know everything around us is made of matter. So it's important for all of us to have knowledge on chemistry. I love to teach chemistry and try to make students love to learn chemistry. I try to use real life examples to explain the subject.
As we know everything around us is made of matter which is defined as anything that has mass and occupies some space. We apply so many real life examples and do some activities to understand about the matter.
Chemical substance is a form of matter, after getting to know about what is matter, we discuss about chemical substances, how the different substances are formed, their properties and importance to human life.
Periodic table is a tabular representation of elements that are discovered till today. It has systematic arrangement of elements into groups (vertical columns) and periods (horizontal rows) according to some similar properties shown by elements. In this chapter we discuss about following things 1). Evolution of periodic table over the years. 2). Types of elements and their properties. 3). How the elements are arranged into different groups and periods? 4). Physical and chemical properties of elements. 5). Trends in the periodic properties of elements.
We know matter is anything which has mass and occupies some space. Mostly matter exists in nature in three physical states that are solid, liquid and gaseous states. In this chapter we apply real life examples and do some activities to understand following topics 1). The different states of matter and their properties. 2). The inter-conversion of matter into different states. 3). Effect of energy and pressure in inter-conversion of matter among different states.
Nuclear chemistry is a branch of chemistry which deals with the study of changes in nucleus of an atom, radio activity of elements, reactions occur in nucleus (nuclear fission and nuclear fusion) and their importance. In this topic we also learn about some importance concepts like carbon dating method, half-life of radioactive elements and properties of alpha, beta and gamma rays.
The study of the relationship between electricity and chemical reactions.
Organic chemistry is a branch of chemistry that deals with the study of carbon compounds that contain carbon along with some other elements such as hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and less frequently sulfur and halogens. In this chapter, we learn about 1). Importance of organic chemistry to human life 2). Sources of organic compounds 3). Various functional groups and their physical, chemical properties 4). Isomerism 5). IUPAC nomenclature of organic compounds etc. Many students feel difficulty with organic chemistry; I feel this is very easy to understand once we know the basics. I have different strategies to deal with organic chemistry to ensure the student understands it easily.
The study of the relationship between work, heat, energy, and temperature with respect to different states of matter. And the spontaneity of a chemical reaction is studied.
Chemical kinetic is a branch of physical chemistry that deals with the study of reaction rates. Here we determine the speed of a chemical reaction and learn how fast or slow a chemical reaction would occur in nature. We look into various real-life examples to understand the speed of a chemical reaction and factors affecting the speed of reactions. For example 1). The rusting of iron is a slow reaction when the iron is exposed to moist air a thin film of rust is formed, which is a hydrated ferric oxide (Fe2O3. xH2O). 2). Burning and explosions are very fast reactions.
Here we discuss the matter, its existence in 3 different states and properties of these states. We do some activities to understand the properties of matter.
