I would like to explain to you why I would make an excellent tutor, teacher or mentor by reviewing with you my qualification and then give a brief description of my philosophy on tutoring. I have a B.S. in Cell and Molecular Biology and an M.S. in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. I have worked in a diverse number of occupations including office work, sales and computer training. Of greatest value to the development of my ability to self-learn and to communicate that learning to others is the year long internship at The Scripps Research Institute in San Diego. This is a prestigious research institution with a strong focus on the biomedical and biotechnological. There I had to learn and apply principles of organic chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, bioinformatics, precalculus concepts and extreme organizational methods to keep it all straight. My specific research involved gene modification and the study of cellular models of the disease Friedreich's Ataxia.
Tutoring is, in my view, more effective and time saving than most other approaches to learning. I believe it is the job of the tutor not only to explain the material but to enable the student to have the confidence and capability to learn independently as well. To be able to crack open a book or article and sort, memorized and extract information on one's own is a profoundly important ability in school and professions at the higher end of the income spectrum. Ultimately, however, it is you, the student, whom I will tailor my tutoring approach to. My goal is to help you achieve the goals of your own that led you to seek out a tutor in the first place. I look forward to being of service!
