I graduated in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in biology and a minor in chemistry. I have a strong foundation in the sciences, including general biology & chemistry, cell biology, microbiology, organic chemistry, and biochemistry.
I have experience in lab techniques for all of these subjects. I also have a well-rounded, successful writing background, in both general and scientific research, as well as persuasive, problem/solution, and informative essays. I have been a certified pharmacy technician for several years. I am passionate about the pharmaceutical field and medical-related scientific research. In a pharmaceutical retail setting I have mastered all skills and knowledge that can be acquired hands-on in the work field. I can teach and train for all areas of this job, including testing for certification. In a laboratory setting, I have succeeded in techniques learned alongside classes I have taken, and spent my last year of my undergrad working as a research assistant for my professor.
I love to teach and am patient with the student, whatever the learning pace may be. I have a can-do attitude and an encouraging personality. I've trained many pharmacy employees to do the more difficult tasks of a technician, and having worked with many personalities, understand the need for patience, and the reward of watching someone succeed.
I have successfully completed a botany course, including lab and lecture, required of science majors by SHSU. I can assist a student in learning and understanding the following topics:
Introduction to science, botany, and chemistry; macromolecules; plant cells; cell types; cell function; energy; photosynthesis; glycolysis; citric acid (krebs) cycle; genetics; DNA and biotechnology; plant tissue and organs; roots; stems; leaves; flowers; seeds; hormones; tropisms; nutrition; transport; plant ecology; plant ecosystems; taxonomy.
General chemistry I: chemical changes and laws governing them; nomenclature; introduction to thermodynamics; reactions involving oxygen, hydrogen, acids, bases, and salts; ionization; metathesis; the periodic table, and atomic and molecular structure.
General Chemistry II: descriptive chemistry; gas laws; equilibria; kinetics; thermodynamics; electrochemistry; oxidation-reduction reactions.
Organic Chemistry I & II: See description under organic chemistry.
I have completed both organic chemistry I & II, mastering all topics that make up this area of chemistry. Passing each part was dependent upon not only testing by the professor, but in addition, a standardized final prepared by the American Chemical Society. I can assist a student with the following topics:
Organic Chemistry I includes structure and properties of organic molecules, including alkanes, alkenes, & alkynes; stereochemistry; alkyl halides: nucleophilic substitution & elimination reactions.
Organic Chemistry II includes structure, synthesis, and reactions of alcohols; properties of and reactions involving ethers, epoxides, sulfides, aromatic compounds, ketones, aldehydes, amines, carboxylic acids & derivatives; infrared, mass, UV, and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy; conjugated systems; orbital symmetry.
I have successfully completed the zoology lecture and lab required of science majors by SHSU. I have gained a full understanding of the following topics and can assist studends seeking to do the same:
Introduction to evolutionary & ecological principals of biology; emphasis on animal anatomy, behavior, ecology, taxonomy, and lab dissection technique.
Great Tutor I would highly recommend her — Afifa has been an excellent tutor for my 16 year old son. She is always on time and works well with him on his Chemistry lessons. She makes is easy for him to understand the lessons and builds his confidence. ...
