Akash Bakshi

Foster City, California

Hi my name is Akash! I tutor Chemistry, Biology, Algebra, as well as Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. If you need any help with these subjects, e-mail me for a free tutoring session!

I have loved Science since my Grandmother bought me my first Chemistry set at the age of 8.

I started tutoring after passing AP Chemistry in High School with a 5. After realizing my passion for Biology in College, I soon started tutoring both Biology and Chemistry to students at the University of California, San Diego. Soon after the Wild Fire Disaster in 2007 I began to teach underprivelaged Middle School and High School Students in and around the San Diego Area as well. I later became a Professor's/Teaching Assisant for General and Organic Chemistry as well as a number of Basic and Advanced Biology Courses. I graduated from UC San Diego in June of 2010 with a degree in Biochemistry and Cell Biology.

I later went on to pursue a Masters at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. In addition to becoming a Teacher's Assistant, I also became a General Chemistry Instructor.

I returned to the US in January of 2012 after completing my Masters in Biotechnology/ Molecular Biology, and began my career as a Life Science Sales Representative/ Business Development Associate at a Reagent Manufacturing Start-up. 2012 has been my first year away from teaching, which has made me realize my interest in Teaching, which has led me to become a tutor.
