I have a Master's degree in Human Genetics and work as a board certified genetic counselor. This is a field where my main responsibility is to transform complex medical terms and genetic information into something that my patients understand. This is similar to tutoring. In my practice, I take cues from patients about how they best learn and this is an important tool both in my job and as a tutor.

I teach only genetics and I typically tutor students at the college and graduate school level. I will tailor my work specifically to each student and try to use whatever methods you respond to the best.

I would love to work with you! Thanks!

Genetics

I am a genetic counselor with a Master's degree in Human Genetics. As a genetic counselor, my job is to take complex genetic and medical information and transform it into easy language for patients to understand. This is very similar to tutoring as they both involve working together to understand the information presented to them. Throughout my work and graduate training, I tutored graduate students in both genetics and embryology. These students benefited greatly as I was able to gear their lessons to their specific learning styles.

Great Genetics Tutor! — Emily was a really good tutor in a subject which is very specific (Genetics)and is hard to find tutors for. She was very nice, and professional, and knew the material well. She was easy to reach by phone and email, and I would recommend her to any students looking for help in Genetics. I only wish I had found her earlier in the semester! ...
