I am a research scientist at a local national laboratory with experience in molecular biology, microbiology, botany and computational genomics/bioinformatics. I received my PhD with a thesis related to plant-microbe interactions and have an understanding of biology from the molecular to the ecological level.

Classroom teaching isn't always designed for all learners, and I appreciate that a tutor can sometimes give a much needed different perspective on material. I aim to be able to explain difficult concepts in a way that everyone can understand.

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.
