I teach undergraduate courses in economics at Lady Shri Ram College. As part of my tutoring experience, I have taught students of ISBF, Nottingham University, Delhi Technological University and different colleges of Delhi University, thus giving me exposure to diverse syllabi, rigour and learning styles. My areas of interest are microeconomics, mathematics for economics and econometrics. I received my Master's degree in Economics from the Johns Hopkins University (USA) where I worked as a teaching assistant for a year and received the Undergraduate Teaching Award for excellent performance in the role. Between 2012 and 2013, I was Assistant Professor at the University of Delhi, where I taught courses in econometrics, Indian economics and macroeconomics.
I Can Manage Both
While teaching/tutoring, it is my constant endeavour to engage the student by encouraging interaction and questions, as indicated by my consistently glowing student reviews. In addition to emphasizing the intuition behind theoretical concepts, I try to include simple and relevant examples in my explanations to facilitate learning.
Practice a lot of full 4 hour tests on the computer. Purchase one of the manhattan books: that gives 6 full tests. Manhattan is also very good for verbal and reading comprehension sections.
Magoosh is another good website.
Economics is a multi-disciplinary field which combines mathematical rigor along with intuition. An economist is trained in math and data analysis along with writing and analytical skills. A good economist is well-read, has a strong intuition about the impact of policies and is able to articulate his/her ideas in a simple yet effective manner.
A fairly recent field, known as 'behavioral economics' has emerged, which combines psychology and economics. Nobel prize winner Prof. Thaler has done seminal work in this area to answer the question 'why do people behave irrationally and can we predict irrational behaviour using behavioral economics'?
Marginal means additional: so sum of marginal utility is total utility. Whenever marginal utility is positive, total utility is increasing, whenever marginal utility is negative, total utility is decreasing.
Limited or scarce resources with alternate uses have to be employed to meet unlimited economic needs, which is the main problem of resource allocation which the profession of economics attempts to find solutions to. Further, economists are also concerned with the "efficiency" of resource allocation, that is resources should be used in the best possible way without wastage.
Parul mam taught us Econometrics as part of undergraduate course at Lady Shri Ram College (Delhi University). Overall an amazing experience to take the course under her guidance. She helped us understand the concepts using visual representations. Tutorials were taken with utmost sincerity. Wish we could take more courses with her.

I was taught Introductory Econometrics by Parul Gupta during my undergraduate at LSR. She taught the subject in a very enjoyable manner and explained the concepts with examples and coded simulations. She also helped us with Stata. The best part was that she was always ready to hear and solve our doubts, even after the class.

I have had the great pleasure to be taught by Parul mam for four out of six semesters during my undergraduate degree in LSR. She was extremely systematic and organised in her way of teaching. That gave us a clear idea of how we proceeded in class and helped us understand the logical sequence of the subject. Her teaching style was never monotonous. She went the extra mile to enhance our understanding of the subject by conducting interactive sessions, simulations and a variety of presentations. I really enjoyed learning under Parul mam and would recommend any student to learn from her. Economics student from the Batch of 2018

Her dedication and passion towards teaching all the kids to best of her ability. Her approachability and constant motivation make her stand out in the crowd of teachers.

Parul mam is very diligent with her research and none of our questions have ever gone unanswered. No other class was more logically sound and structured. Her classes are very such that we retained most of the stuff. One of the best teachers I've ever had. :)

While there are a lot of good things about Parul Mam's teaching methods, what is most impressive is the amount of effort she puts to teach beyond the textbook, giving her students a well rounded understanding of concepts. Refreshingly different from teachers who make you believe that Economics is too difficult to be interesting. If you want to grasp concepts fully and enjoy the ride that Economics is, she is the teacher you've been looking for.
