I have been a biology professor and personal tutor for the past 3.5 years. During this time I have taught Biology I and II for both majors and non-majors and Microbiology. However my Ph.D. is in Genetics and Development so I am extremely knowledgeable in these subjects as well. I currently teach at Richland College and the Northeast Campus of Tarrant County College, however, I have also taught at SMU.

Although I started off tutoring mostly college students, over the past couple of years my focus has turned to high school students attending both public and private institutions including Highland Park HS, St. Marks, Plano East HS, Hockaday, Bishop Lynch and Ursulin. I have extensive experience (over 200 hours) mentoring students in both regular and AP biology. Additionally, I have helped several students prepare for the AP Biology exam.

Because I am a biology professor, my lecture notes (PowerPoints), quizzes, reviews and exams are all available to the students that I tutor/mentor. Additionally, I have access to certain online homework systems (Mastering Biology, Mastering Microbiology and Learn Smart) which also provide extra review materials for my students.

I have had great success tutoring high school students of all skills and backgrounds. So whether you are looking to maintain a high level of study throughout the semester, you need to improve your grades for college applications or if you need help studying for an exam, I'm your tutor. For instance, last year I started tutoring someone who was failing AP Biology. By the end of the spring semester, she had earned an A in the class with my help. Not only that, but she was exempt from even taking her final exam in Biology!

Typically I only take on a couple of students each semester depending on my work schedule and the needs of each student. My evenings are available for tutoring however my schedule is usually flexible. My hourly rate reflects upon my credentials, experience, provided materials and the demand for my services.

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.

Genetics

I have a Ph.D. in Genetics and Development from UT Southwestern which I obtained in the fall of 2010. During the first two years of my graduate career I excelled in numerous classes specializing in genetics including Developmental Neurogenetics, Advanced Genetics I and II, Experimental Approaches to Complex Genetic Disease and Gene Transcription. Additionally, my dissertation research focused on using various genetic approaches to identify various regulators of neural stem cell proliferation during development and after injury. The title of my dissertation was "The role of glutamate transporters in early postnatal neurogenesis." Moreover I have given numerous presentations relating to my expertise and have several publications.

Microbiology

The study of microscopic organisms', which are defined as any living organism that is either a single cell (unicellular), a cell cluster, or has no cells at all (acellular). This includes eukaryotes, such as fungi and protists, and prokaryotes. Viruses and prions, though not strictly classed as living organisms, are also studied. Microbiology typically includes the study of the immune system, or Immunology. Generally, immune systems interact with pathogenic microbes; these two disciplines often intersect which is why many colleges offer a paired degree such as "Microbiology and Immunology".

Microbiology is a broad term which includes virology, mycology, parasitology, bacteriology, immunology and other branches. A microbiologist is a specialist in microbiology and these related topics.

I currently teach Microbiology at Richland College and have and have experience working in a Microbiology laboratory at UT Southwestern.

The best! — I met with a couple tutors for help on biology before meeting with Jennifer, I must say that she is the best and gives your complete moneys worth. She comes prepared and doesn't waste any time covering everything I needed help with, which is what it should be like when paying for help. She helped me achieve an A in biology, and is now helping me master microbiology. Jennifer puts what I felt li ...
