Final score of 38 in the IB Program
I am a recent graduate from McGill University. I graduated with First Class Honours in Anatomy and Cell Biology and I also hold a Minor in Pharmacology. I have experience working in labs and I have been tutoring students for over 5 years in a variety of subjects. I am comfortable working with ESL students, and am fluent in Hindi and Tamil. I can also handle conversational French.
While at McGill, I have privately tutored students in physiology while at McGill University, and later was hired by the university as Teaching Assistant for the most intensive lab course in the Anatomy department. As a TA, I instructed a group of students for 2-3 hours every week in the cadaver lab, proctored the final lab exam, and marked their papers. I continued to privately tutor high school level biology after finishing my degree at McGill.
I love seeing people learn, and encourage my students to be conscious of concepts rather than grades - grades will follow a conceptual understanding of the material. I also provide an intersectional approach to learning, whereby similar concepts are applied across different styles of problems. This is to ensure that students are not 'memorising' ways to solve problems; instead, I teach them to recognise conceptual similarities in their assignments.
Passing on my knowledge is something I hope to continue in my current role as the Community Development Coordinator at the Alliance for South Asian AIDS Prevention (ASAAP). I truly enjoy teaching and find it an incredibly rewarding experience. You will be hard pressed to find a more enthusiastic and reliable teacher. I am also capable of teaching people at varying skill levels. Age is also not a problem: it's never too late - or too early! - to learn a subject.
HobbiesI am pretty well rounded. Some of my hobbies include sketching, reading, and writing. I really enjoy writing poetry with terminology from my anatomy courses - the human body is wonderful inspiration, and I love the inflections in my poetry which arise from such specific vocabulary. I also enjoy working out, cooking, debating, and discussing. I consider myself progressive, amiable, and love to interact with people. My volunteering experiences include: working at anonymous help-lines, patient/resident interaction at hospitals/nursing homes, and teaching children and young adults of all ages.

To students of both sciences and arts backgrounds, Shriya Hari is a highly educated, charming and incredibly talented student of both disciplines. Her ability to connect with her peers and her capacity to explain fundamental to even complicated concepts are truly admirable. Shriya has excellent written and verbal communication skills, is extremely organized and is reliable both as a friend and as a teacher. Moreover, she accomplishes the difficult task of instruction with a very positive attitude. In conclusion, I recommend Shriya without stipulation.
