Hi, I'm Jason, and I love tutoring science and math. The subjects I'm most fond of are biology, anatomy, and physiology. I've spent the last few years tutoring fellow students while I was finishing my doctorate, most of whom were older adults going back to school. I also have experience working with children in reading, but would also love the opportunity to help kids develop an interest for science as well.

Most recently, I graduated with my doctorate in naturopathic medicine from Southwest College of naturopathic medicine in Arizona, which included coursework in everything from anatomy and physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, and many more medical sciences.

Before that I graduated from Virginia Tech with a bachelor's degree in biological bciences. I spent over a year there working as a research assistant in molecular biology.

I spent the last 2-3 years as a teaching assistant to medical students in anatomy, physiology, histology, and neuroanatomy.

Thanks for viewing my profile, I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anatomy

Anatomy is a specific interest of mine due to my medical background and its role in medicine. I find the movings and workings of the human body to be very straightforward when you start in the right places. I spent three years as a teaching assistant for medical students anatomy lab.

Biochemistry

I've taken both undergraduate and graduate level courses in Biochem and can help you whether you need to see the big picture or the finer details of processes like glycolysis, krebs cycle, and fatty acid breakdown.

Biology

I have my B.S. in Biology from Virginia Tech and am currently in medical school at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. Biology is what I consider my favorite subject and my passion.

Nutrition

I have completed my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, which incorporates Nutrition as a core part of the curriculum. This is a 4 year, post-graduate program which allows graduates to practice medicine in licensed states.

Physiology

Physiology is as much an interest as anatomy, and the way the body works is exciting to teach and see students begin to understand the concepts.
