She has over 30 years of writing, training and production experience in high technology, education and broadcasting, and has been teaching at the Palo Alto Adult School since 2007.

Her deep and broad experience has been instrumental in her successful approach to teaching as well as in her creation of an innovative series of courses. Mitra’s students run the gamut, from college professors, visiting scholars, post-doctorate students, executives, engineers, and professionals, to college or college-bound students, and stay-at-home parents. Mitra loves teaching international students as it gives her a chance to learn about other cultures and languages.
