Steven’s qualifications in specific subjects below.
I am a Teaching Assistant for Anatomy and Physiology (I and II) at SUNY Brockport.
After earning both a Bachelor’s in Biochemistry and a Master’s degree in Biology, I can say with confidence that I will be able to work with a variety of different students who are interested in improving their skills and knowledge in the life sciences. Whether its at the microscopic level, in relation to an organism, or entire ecosystems, we will be able to boost both your grade and understanding of any number of different areas of Biology.
My B.S. is in Biochemistry, with chemistry being of general interest and study since high school. Recently, I scored in the 97th percentile for my PCAT chemistry section, which includes both organic and inorganic chemistry.
Presently, I am nearing completion of my Master's work where I study the spatial expression pattern of Anoctamin-1, which is to say where this gene is expressed, in the zebrafish gastrointestinal tract using in situ hybridization. This project deals extensively with advanced topics in molecular biology and genetics. My experience in my previous job allowed me to work with many different transgenic mouse models. My coursework has also extensively prepared me for any kind of coursework relating to genetics.
I took the GRE several years ago so I'm very familiar to the testing format and how one can prepare more efficiently for the exam.
Though I have not taken the MCAT, I have taken the PCAT (91st %tile), which is the pharmacy entrance exam. These two exams cover nearly the same material, save for the MCAT including more physics and less organic chemistry.
I tutor this subject at SUNY Brockport.
I am a Teaching Assistant for Anatomy and Physiology (I and II) at SUNY Brockport. I tutor this subject as well.
I have a Regent's diploma from Irondequoit High School ('02), as well as degrees in Biochemistry (BS) and Biology (MS) from SUNY Geneseo and Brockport, respectively. I am more that qualified for all the subject matter required of this subject, as well as having sufficient knowledge of the Regents exam and how it is structured.
I've been playing, refereeing, and watching soccer since I was very young, which makes me very familiar with the rules, the strategy, and how to train for the sport.
Track & Field
I competed on the Irondequoit and SUNY Geneseo track teams, winning the 2002 sectional title in the 400m Hurdles, as well as winning several team titles during my career at Irondequoit. I love the sport and have plenty of experience training and competing in the hurdling and mid distance events.
