With two Masters Degrees (one from Yale) Tine specializes in college and high school biology tutoring (cell, molecular, genetics, organismal, evolutionary biology, physiology etc). Whether you need urgent help with a paper, midterms, admissions test prep, or want to stay on top of or ahead of your coursework, Tine will explain concepts clearly, help you understand the context so the details make sense, assist you with ordering and writing up your thoughts, suggest study strategies, drill you for tests.
With her undergraduate degree in Translation studies and 4 fluent languages, Tine is also uniquely qualified to help with grammar, writing and conversation in French, Spanish and Dutch. For English, Tine has a finely honed talent for incisive and persuasive writing using graphic word choice and unstoppable flow, which will help you write papers that get you the grade.
Tine has experience working with students with focusing problems.

Request 2-hour minimum for jobs outside Manhattan with bridge/tunnel tolls, or 45min & up travel (one-way) from Midtown. OK to tutor multiple students/subjects to reach minimum.
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 me understand the concepts of the material, and the way she asks me to do them (such as grids and comparison charts) act as good references when facing more complex ideas, as I can refer back to them. No matter what the subject is, she is always able to give great analogies or real world examples that allow me to conceptualize the specifics of a topic. I also love the fact she will engage in my tangential questions and provide me with background information about the material, as long as it does not stray too far from what we are focusing on. I can confidently say Tina has been the most helpful tutor I have ever had, and may even go as far to say that she is the best teacher I have had the pleasure of learning from.
Tina took a personal interest in my daughter and helped her to set realistic goals that motivated her to do her very best. Tina also has many great qualities that make her a great tutor. She has patience, is reliable, punctual, dedicated and responsible. She is very knowledgeable and was able to bring out the best from my child to master her biology class. Indeed, Tina is a great asset to your company.
I'm really happy with my tutor Tina! I was so depressed with my scores in French and Biology and everything changed. I'm feeling more confident and happy to see my scores go up. Thank you Tina for your help and patience!
Tina has been very helpful and patient with my ninth grade son. She has helped him organize his homework and understand Biology. She is very thorough and does a great job of explaining the subject.
Tina is dedicated to helping her students succeed. My daughter's grades in honors biology are higher than ever imagined. We owe it to her hard work, which never would have resulted in such success, if it were not for the strategic guidance and support she receives from Tina.
Thanks Tina for a great lesson. I feel much more comfortable with the material and am ready for the exam!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
