My name is Jessie, and I absolutely love teaching biology! I am a young, passionate and energetic new teacher. As much as I enjoy teaching, I love learning from my students as well. I am certified to teach biology, but can also provide math tutoring!
I received my bachelor's degree in biology from Simmons College, and received my master's in teaching there as well. I have taught biology at the high school level and in a variety of settings, to many different students with different learning styles.
As fascinating as biology is, I realize that it is a very tough subject for many students. I try my best to make biology accessible and relative to my students' lives--keep it simple and fun! As a tutor, I hope to bring the subject to life and help students gain the confidence they need to conquer any subject, just as my own tutors in the past have done for me.

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 received my bachelor degree in biology at Simmons College, and previously studied pre-pharmacy courses at Mass. College of pharmacy, which included many biology courses (general, micro, and biochemistry). I have a very strong background in biology, not to mention a huge passion for the subject! I would love to teach more people about the wonders of life through biology!

Genetics

I have studied genetics in college through many arenas, and now I teach concepts in genetics as a high school biology teacher. I have also tutored students at the college level in genetics.
My background, my bachelor's degree in biology, and my current job all show that I am skilled in understanding and teaching genetics.
Genetics is the study of how genes get passed on from an organism to its offspring in sexual reproduction. Includes: Basic Mendelian genetics, human inheritance patterns, meiosis, sex-linked genes, epigenetics, chi-square analysis.
