MEET THE INSTRUCTORS
Mr. Doddiah (Sachin) has a B.S. degree in Neuroscience from UCLA; and a Master's degree in Physiology & Biophysics from Georgetown University. He was a Distinguished AP Scholar, having taken 12 AP exams-- the English Language & Composition, English Literature & Composition, European History, U.S. History, Calculus BC, Statistics, Chemistry, Biology, Psychology, Spanish, U.S. Government & Politics, and Microeconomics. At Genesis Academy, Mr. Doddiah oversees multiple subject areas including the SAT/ACT Reading, Writing, Math, in addition to other subject-specific test-prep courses like the AP Biology, Chemistry, to name a few. With over 15 years of teaching experience, Mr. Doddiah helps countless high school juniors and seniors achieve their goal of attaining admissions to their dream schools!
Jinny Lee graduated from UCLA, attended UCI for graduate school and is currently a college professor. She holds degrees in engineering, chemistry, environmental science, and geology. Her extensive experience as a science and math instructor has taught her that each class, each student is different in the way the material is understood. Therefore, a cookie cutter approach to teaching does not work. Her pedagogy is to adapt to the needs of the students and in doing so, make an effort to connect with them, be relatable, and foster a positive learning environment where the material is presented in a manner that is easy to digest. Science and math are often challenging subjects but with the right guidance and encouragement, can be interesting and exciting!
Mr. Adi Gadepalli's first summer job was to help grade papers for a Calculus Class at a Community College in 1999. He was only 15, but a professor was so impressed by his aptitude. Since then, Adi have found that connecting with students offers him the deepest fulfillment. During his studies at NYIT’s 7-year medical program, he tutored Calculus, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and English. He also worked with Princeton Review & Kaplan for SAT. Later he taught GRE Math and GMAT Math as well. In the last 6 years he has been a Private Tutor full-time. He teaches Geometry, Algebra, Precalculus, Calculus, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and English at Genesis Academy. He also teaches a book club to help improve vocabulary, reading comprehension, and critical reading skills. He has also had the opportunity to help a few PhD candidates with their comprehensive exam, dissertation, and defense. Through the years he has worked with a range of skill levels and age levels: developmentally disabled to elite prodigies - primary school students to adult professionals.
For Kate Howlett, there is nothing more exciting than learning (though teaching is a close second!). She had the opportunity to do both while studying at English and Biology as an undergraduate at Stanford University and then through graduate English at Georgetown University, where she was a Writing Center Fellow and taught creative non-fiction courses. Intricacies of grammar, tools of rhetoric, well-crafted language, and the pure joy of literature fascinate and inspire her. Kate finds few things more satisfying than helping students discover deep truths in books and their own voices on the page, and she absolutely insists on having fun while doing so. She's also a lifelong learner across a range of disciplines, from history to sociology to physics to philosophy, and is always excited to explore those and many other topics with her students.
