I'm a MENSA member who loves to see students that care get the help they need. I prefer to use analogies, pneumonic devices, and drawings when I teach, so if you learn best through seeing or visualizing material rather than rote memorization or repetitive listening I will be a great match for you. I have previously taught lab sections for Introductory Biology at Cornell University and TA'd for the graduate level Advanced Plant Genetics. I feel very comfortable discussing and explaining biology and chemistry at any level.
I received my B.S. in Biotechnology from Rutgers (minor in Biochemistry), and M.S. from Cornell in Plant Biology where I was a part of the Plant Cell and Molecular Biology program. I'm an excellent molecular biologist with a desire to help people understand more about life from molecules and up! I currently help my students with Biology, Chemistry, and Molecular Biology. I also help students prepare for the SAT II and AP in Biology and Chemistry. I'm currently (Spring 2013) looking to pick up one student in Physics at a discounted rate and one student in Organic Chemistry at a discounted rate. I performed well in both those courses, but I need to practice tutoring in them, hence the currently discounted rate.
I feel that its best to receive help early, before you get too far behind! The earlier you get to me, the more I can do for you, but don't be afraid to schedule a last minute cram session: sometimes desperation can lead to inspiration! Please contact me with any questions you have.
