I believe there is a scientist in everyone. Sometimes, it just takes a little bit of understanding in a topic to eventually develop a passion for it. Tutoring helped me develop an interest in biology even though science can be one of the most difficult topics to understand - there is a way!

I'm a visual learner so I needed demonstrations and analogies to understand complex subjects in biology. This is why I would make a great tutor - I guide students through visuals to help them grasp the material and remember it forever.

My major is Molecular Biology but I am comfortable tutoring in all biology concepts. I have done exceptionally well in my lower division biology courses, including the upper division biology courses I have recently taken. Last year, I completed an internship at the Department of Biology at Stanford University, mostly focusing on ecological experimentation. This has broadened my understanding of biology, especially working with world-renowned researchers in the lab.

I feel confident tutoring in topics such as: The structure and function of macromolecules, cell structure and organelle functions, cellular respiration, photosynthesis, cell communication, the cell cycle, meiosis, Mendelian genetics, the chromosomal and molecular basis of inheritance, gene to protein processes, viruses and bacteria, DNA technology, mechanisms of evolution, classification of organisms (including prokaryotes, protists, seed plants, fungi, animals, invertebrates, vertebrates), plant form and functions, animal nutrition, circulation and gas exchange, immune system, osmoregulation and excretion, endocrine systems, reproduction and development, nervous systems, sensory and motor mechanisms, concepts of ecology (including behavioral, population, and community ecology, ecosystems, conservation and restoration ecology).

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.

Biology

I have a solid grasp on all of the concepts presented in Campbell and Reece Biology; the most widely used textbook for lower division biology. In addition, I have tutored students successfully using other textbooks. I received an A in AP Biology in high school, with a 4 on the AP Biology exam. Additionally, I feel confident tutoring students in all biology courses in upper-division biology in college and received a B+ or better in those courses.

Genetics

I completed an internship at the Department of Biology at Stanford University. I am comfortable tutoring students in human and general genetics where topics may include: the nature of human inheritance, the molecular basis of inheritance, Mendelian genetics, population genetics, cancer genetics, cytogenetics, common human genetic diseases, factors affecting human diversity, and the social and moral implications of recent advances in genetics.

Public Speaking

Being a communications minor, I have taken several courses related to public speaking and feel very comfortable speaking in front of an audience of various sizes. In addition, I assisted other students in being confident, enunciating words, and drawing the audience in when speaking publicly.
