I have a BS and MA degree in biology, and I have worked in the microbiology and molecular biology field for 20 years. Part of my experience was working at Princeton University, where I interacted with students on a daily basis.

My tutoring experience has been with AP Biology and Honors Biology students at the high school level.

Since every person is unique in the way they learn, I try to find out what works best for the student. For example, some students know the material, but they still get average grades on tests because of undeveloped test taking skills, or test anxiety. Other students don't know the best way to study for biology because it is often taught using a rote memory approach only. Therefore, I utilize different tutoring skills, based on what the student and I think is the most advantageous for them.

Thank you! A successful tutoring experience requires dedication, patience, and realistic expectations from both the tutor and the student.

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.

Genetics

I had an undergraduate course in genetics and received a B in the course. This course was part of my required classes toward my BS degree in Biology.

Since then, I have obtained a master's degree in Biology. Also, I have worked in the pharmaceutical industry as a molecular biologist for 15 years, which requires knowledge of genetics on a regular basis.

Microbiology

I had advanced microbiology lecture and lab in graduate school and obtained an A and B+ respectively. Additionally, I worked as a microbiologist for 5 years in the pharmaceutical industry, and continue to work with bacteria on a regular basis as a molecular biologist.
