My strengths are in microbiology, genetics, bioinformatics, and math (up to calculus I). I have a minor in chemistry as well and I am comfortable teaching organic chemistry and biochemistry (both are essential for the Mcat). I currently conduct research in marine microbiology and have used most of the techniques and instruments presented in genetics textbooks. In addition, I am also a master's student but flexible on hours. Scientific writing is also an area I am well versed in. I have written abstracts and held presentations on research data in academia. I use a visually oriented approach and utilize illustrative skills to present topics in a different perspective for students. Many times there is nothing "difficult" about a subject, it is just presented in the wrong manner. I present material in "normal language", as I like to call it, and draw simple diagrams that make a world of difference. I have utilized these approaches in tutoring my peers in courses such as virology, genetics, microbiology, and microbial physiology. Though I have no formal tutoring experience, every peer I have helped has improved in their course work. ESL was another interest of mine and I have in the past developed lesson plans for Spanish speakers learning English. In summary, if you have a child struggling in the sciences or if you yourself are having difficulty, I can show you what is really going on and break down the subject into a simplistic version.
