I received my BA in biology with a minor in music from Cornell University and my MS in population biology from UC Davis. I have taught environmental biology as an adjunct professor at a community college and have experience teaching general biology and evolutionary genetics at the college level. I also have experience with statistics, especially working with the R programming language. I enjoy teaching biology concepts and breaking them down into components to make them easier to understand. I have not been a paid tutor for a while (since high school), but I have worked with students one-on-one through twice weekly office hours in all of the classes I have taught.
I am also a native Japanese speaker--I am interested in being a conversation partner if you would like to practice your spoken Japanese--and I can also teach basic reading and writing. I am also a musician. I started playing piano at three years old and violin at ten.
