Hi, I am Dhruv Sharma, graduated with a MS in Bioengineering from Santa Clara University, CA. I am currently volunteering as a tutor in a non-profit organization, BioCurious in Santa Clara. I had a passion to teach since my school days. I had been a Teaching Assistant and had lectured on Medical Anatomy (Thorax) during my college summer vacations. I had also given classes on Molecular Biology, Cancer Biology and Immunology.

I put my sincere effort present and express the established concepts and facts in an interactive and interesting manner, widening the cognitive horizon of the performers and digging out the potential buried within - enhancing their logical reasoning and analytical acumen.

I believe that a picture is worth thousand words and thus make sure to provide pictorial representations while teaching. I also include interesting videos and put my level best in giving analogies from day to day life in order to simplify the scientific facts making them comprehensible.


Background

I am currently volunteering as a tutor in a non profit organization, BioCurious, Santa Clara.
I had lectured on apoptosis and working in designing the study material and course syllabus for teaching.

I was a junior research fellow at MGM Medical College, Mumbai, India where I was also a teaching assistant in my capacity and had given classes on Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Cancer Biology and Immunology to batch of around 5-8 students.

During my summer break while pursuing my MSc. in Molecular Biology and Human Genetics, I had given 10 lectures on Medical Anatomy (Thorax), to Diploma in Ophthalmic Technics (DOT) students. It was a class of around 15-20 students.
