I recently graduated from the Columbia University Graduate Schools of Arts and Sciences with a Masters in Conservation Biology. As such, I am knowledgeable with Biology, Ecology, and Statistics (I was a teaching assistant for a Statistics class).

Secondly, I minored in Math in college, at Brandeis University, and took Mathematics courses all the way up to Linear Algebra, which included Multivariate Calculus, Set Theory, Probability, and Statistics.

Finally, I tutor weekly on the ACTs and SATs with a private company, and have been doing so for over 6 months. Though I would not relinquish their secrets, I have gained strong experience in how and what to tutor to help students succeed on these tests.

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.

I have taken several Genetics classes, including Conservation Genetics, college level Genetics at Brandeis University, Genetics lab, and I've worked in two laboratory settings doing laboratory research. In particular, I spent one year working at Massachusetts General Hospital doing genetic research on Hungtinton's Disease.
