All of Lisa’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Lisa’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Chemical Engineering

I have a Masters degree in Chemical Engineering from MIT, and 10 years of practical experience in biotechnology lab research. Because of my background, I will be able to assist with this subject matter.

Differential Equations

I have a master's degree in chemical engineering from MIT. For this I took several classes in differential equations. I got a better understanding of the material when I had to apply the concepts in physics and chemistry classes. I also used differential equations in my professional career, solving complex real-world problems.

Genetics

My education covered the basics of genetics. In addition, I worked for many years in companies making medical devices. As part of my job I had to keep up with current developments biochemistry, medicine, and genetics. I also have a personal interest in the subject, and I have been reading about genetics for 30 years.

Organic Chemistry

I studied organic chemistry as part of my undergraduate and graduate degree programs (both in chemical engineering). Organic chem is a bit more complicated than basic college chemistry, but the principles you learned there will carry over, and help make sense of this new material.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
