" Indrani was fantastic! She is very personable and really wants her students to do well. She goes out of her way to help and makes you feel worth her time."
" Indrani is amazing! She is always quick to reply to emails and is very helpful in every way she can be. I will miss her very much once this course has ended."
" Indrani was always well prepared, knew her material, and involved everyone. She effectively led the activities, and the discussions were always productive."
" Indrani is the best!!! She is so clear, I feel very comfortable asking her questions, she knows the subject matter, and seems to be interested in it too. I purposely asked her what final review session she was teaching because I wanted to review with her in particular. I'm so glad she was my TA, because she really helped me understand concepts that I would not have understood originally if it were just in lecture."
"Indrani was a great teacher for the evolution Writing in the Majors class. Through discussions, presentations, reading, and writing assignments, she did a great job of incorporating several different learning styles into the structure of the course. Throughout the semester, she tailored the course to best fit the needs and interests of the class, keeping us all engaged. She made sure each student grew as a scientist and as a writer, and cares about each one of us dearly. If I ever had a concern or needed more assistance, Indrani would never hesitate to meet with me and work with me so that I could reach my fullest potential in the course. I have learned more about the writing process after taking this course with Indrani than I ever had in my writing focused classes. She helped me cultivate my own interests in a field of biology I had never really thought about, and challenged me to think in ways I never had before."
"As my instructor for Writing in the Majors in Evolutionary Biology and Diversity, Indrani was always prepared, knowledgable, and engaging. The weekly discussions reinforced the course material in ways that lecture cannot, and provided the students an opportunity to explore the material in a highly engaging manner. Indrani took the time to identify all of her students learning goals, and worked with each of us to adapt the course to our interests and needs. She was always fair, and provided us ample opportunities to get assistance with coursework. I definitely grew as a writer thanks to Indrani's teaching and hope that I am fortunate enough to have an instructor as passionate as her in the future."
"I met with Indrani for help on my graduate school application essays. She was always incredibly helpful and willing to go the extra mile to help me understand. During our weekly meetings she was always very good at explaining any improvements in content development and structure of my essays which included how to address the audience and how to show, rather than tell, my experiences on paper. With Indrani’s help I made great progress each week and ultimately received an acceptance letter from the program I had applied to. Indrani was always very kind, professional, and dependable and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone that needs help with their writing"
