Priya earned a B.S. in Chemical Physics from the Rice University Honors Scholar Program. Her interest in teaching was initially sparked in college after she saw first-hand how many students drop-out of chemistry, physics and math classes confused and discouraged from further study. After earning her degree, she decided to make it her mission to translate these subjects into a language that people can comprehend and even enjoy!
Priya has worked as a scientist in the field of nanotechnology, and has taught high school math and physics, college statistics, and SAT/ACT/GMAT/GRE prep courses. She has also tutored students in a wide-range of subjects, and has seen first-hand the impact that one-on-one instruction and mentorship can have on young people.
Priya enjoys painting, singing and cuddling with her German Shepherd Teddy!
