Algebra 1

I have always enjoyed and been strong in math. While in college and graduate school I tutored and number of people in college algebra with great success. In my experience math students rarely don't understand the topics as they come up, they simply get the wrong answer in the end. Most of the time this is caused by minor errors in easy calculations rather than a misunderstanding of principles. I'm confident I can help you get through your math fears!

Biology

I have a PhD in biology and can help any student at any level of most biological disciplines. My dissertation focussed on evolutionary ecology and population genetics and today I am a evolutionary developmental biologist. I have taught many classes at the college level including general biology, genetics, conservation biology and non-majors biology. I also have extensive research experience in molecular biology and genetics. Contact me and I'll help you with your biology!

Elementary (K-6th)

Tutoring elementary children involves being able to coach them on numerous subjects including math, reading, grammar, social studies and sciences. I believe I have enough general education to be a help to any elementary student in any of these subjects. I have quite a lot of experience working with children. I have 2 children of my own who attend a school where parent volunteerism in the classroom is a critical component of their early education. I have volunteered in 1-2 classes per month (and sometimes more frequently) for the last 5 years and so have worked with children in first through fifth grade individually and in small groups covering subjects like reading, math, social studies and science. In addition, I have developed a science program in my children's elementary school, during which I present a science topic to the class which was followed by hands on experiments and exercises to help demonstrate the topic to the children. Our group of volunteers did this on a monthly basis for every grade level in the school. I developed all of the curriculum and experiments for these "science days". While all of my experience with elementary age children was on a voluntary basis I have many, many hours of experience working with children in first through fifth grade.

Genetics

I have taken the following as an undergraduate and graduate student: general genetics, molecular genetics, evolutionary genetics, population genetics, molecular genetic techniques, molecular evolution and ecology and theoretical population genetics. I have taught the genetics portion of general biology as well as general genetics at CU Boulder. In addition I have worked in population genetics as well as molecular genetics laboratories for many years including currently.

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