Hi! My name is Peter P., and I would like to specialize in tutoring in biology and math, especially AP biology and college level biology classes, including upper division biology classes. I have an undergraduate degree in molecular and cell biology (with emphasis in immunology) from UC Berkeley and a PhD from the University of Connecticut.

I have tutored in the past, covering everything from precalculus to ESL, although in the past few years I've focused primarily on biology. I'm currently working as the chief science officer for LEI, a small program that focuses on teaching science to health care professionals.

Thank you, and I hope to hear from you soon.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Genetics

I have a ph.d in genetics and developmental biology and most of my post-doctoral work revolves around genetics. If you have questions in genetics I'm the perfect tutor for you!

MCAT

I received a 36 on my MCAT when I took it. Also I have a ph.d in genetics and developmental biology. While I'm well versed in all the material on the MCAT.
