Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Science

The ACT Science test evaluates scientific reasoning skills and comprehension. In graduate school (biology) I took a reading course individually with a professor, where you had to explain every diagram in a tall stack of scientific papers. Analyzing scientific information relies on understanding graphical representations of data, logic and critical thinking. I can explain the concepts clearly and help students spot key points and inconsistencies. I have 2 Master's degrees in Genetics, Molecular, Cell and Developmental biology, and did lab research for many years.

Biology

I have 2 Masters in biological sciences: Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology from CUNY, and Genetics from Yale, along with several semesters of undergraduate teaching at CUNY and 10 years of laboratory research on various topics including fruit fly genetics and evolutionary biology. I have experience tutoring high school and teaching and tutoring undergraduate biology.

Dutch

As a native speaker of Dutch and with an undergraduate degree in Translation Studies (Dutch, English, Spanish, minor in French), I am uniquely qualified to tutor Dutch conversation, writing, grammar and usage. My graduate education in biological sciences may be useful for students seeking to focus on Dutch for scientific use.

French

Having grown up in Belgium and France speaking French with half my family and half my co-workers, and having taken French from elementary school to college, I am ready to help you with your French lessons. Grammar, vocabulary, spelling, fluency. Such a beautiful language, n'est-ce pas?

Genetics

With a Master's in Genetics from Yale and one in Molecolar, Cell and Developmental Biology from CUNY, plus years of research in Drosophila genetics and genomics, I am well-equipped to help students with any topic in genetics. From basics such as pedigree analysis, Punnett squares, dominant/recessive alleles, to experimental design, gene mapping, recombination, gene regulation, genomics, transgenes, development, and population genetics.

MCAT

As a tutor specialized in college/pre-med level biology topics, and as a biologist with a thorough knowledge of all the subtopics covered on the MCAT (biochem, molecular, cell, genetics, physiology and biomedical research), I am well placed to help you prepare for the MCAT. I propose that the student complete a few practice tests, and determine which modules need the most attention. We will cover those first, with the aid of a textbook, MCAT review materials, excellent diagrams and high-tech study aids. To ascertain progress, we turn frequently to more practice questions, until the student is confident of his/her desired score.

Spanish

I have an undergraduate degree in translation English and Spanish, and some of my current (non-tutoring) work requires me to use written and spoken Spanish on a daily basis. I am well-versed with vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. I explain everything simply and effectively so it will stick. Spanish is not my native language, so I have a good understanding of the difficulties that may be encountered by other non-native speakers. My other languages are English, Dutch, French and I have passive knowledge of a few more; I can relate Spanish to your own language.

Writing

I am experienced helping to write research papers (college, grad school, upper high school), and I can help you with organizing your thoughts and building up your argument in your papers: outline, introduction, methods & results (in the case of a research paper), literature review, discussion, abstract, and references. Plus, I can help you with sharpening up your prose, grammar and word choice, improving clarity, making the story flow, and making sure you leave no loose ends.
I am a biologist, but I have helped with papers in other fields including engineering and the social sciences. Because writing can take time, for a multi-hour assignment requiring only one car or subway trip, I take the price down. Email me for details. Thank you for your interest.

Easily one of the best tutors I have ever tried — Tina always comes prepared with lesson plans, yet is flexible in her strategy depending on my needs or questions for the session. She is very patient and is always willing to re-explain subjects that I find complex or confusing. She has made an effort to best address my specific style of learning which comes from more of an engineering/kinesthetic background. The homework she gives me always helps ...
