Hi all! I'm a third-year PhD student in Michigan State's Genetics program. I also did my undergraduate work at MSU, so if you are an MSU student, odds are good that I've taken many of the same classes you will be taking. I graduated in four years with a degree in Physiology and a degree in Zoology (Genetics concentration). In the past, I've been a TA for both ZOL 341 (Fundamental Genetics) and MMG 302 (Microbiology Laboratory), and I really enjoyed teaching both of them. I always try to focus on explaining the science behind a question so that it is clear and understandable, rather than ask students to memorize things.

I'm done with all of the coursework for my PhD, with a GPA of 3.705. So I have a very thorough understanding of the fundamentals of biology. My specific areas of expertise are genetics, microbiology, biochemistry, biostatistics, and evolution.

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.

Biostatistics

As a graduate student, I've had to do a lot of statistical analysis on my own data. To facilitate this, I've taken two graduate-level courses on Biostatistics through MSU's Epidemiology Department.

Subjects I know include:
-Basics of SAS and R statistical programs
-Probability (discrete and continuous)
-Estimation
-Study Design
-Hypothesis Testing (t-test, Chi square test, Fisher's exact test, Power calculations, etc.)
-Regression and Correlation
-Multisample Inference (ANOVA, etc.)

Genetics

I'm a third-year PhD student in Michigan State's Genetics program. I specialize in eukaryotic genetics, and I have significant experience in human/medical genetics as well. I've TAed ZOL 341 at MSU, and I took the course myself as an undergraduate there. If it's taught in an undergraduate genetics course, I can teach it to you.

A few subjects I know include:
-Phylogeny analysis
-Restriction mapping
-Linkage analysis
-Probability
-Transcription and Translation
-Lac and Trp Operons
-Mendelian and Non-Mendelian inheritance

Microbiology

My training as a geneticist has involved a lot of coursework in microbiology. I've taken graduate-level courses on prokaryotic cell biology, eukaryotic cell biology, and human cell biology. I've also been a TA for an introductory microbiology lab.

Zoology

I majored in Zoology as an undergraduate at MSU, with a concentration in genetics. Courses I've taken include: Genetics, Cells and Development, Ecology, Evolution, Neurobiology, and various associated lab sections.
