I have a Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics. I am founder and eight years as director of a cutting-edge clinical genetics laboratory. I have two awards as teaching assistant in Genetics laboratory at UC Irvine.
I am a certified teacher in biology and chemistry (2011). I provide targeted assistance for the specific foundations that need rebuilding, and for particular topics missed. Comprehensive assessments, performed mostly on your own time, not mine, with guidance, to minimize your costs. Extensive hands-on experience with SOL preparation and remediation, including math foundations as well as science.
I have extensive experience teaching study skills, including effective use of memorization aids such as electronic flashcards for wide range of subjects. But I also address other techniques to reach higher cognitive levels and deep understanding, as well as knowledge that is retained long after the course ends. Also, I teach motivation and addressing root causes of procrastination. Levels include middle, high school and college study skills. I have experience with teaching motivational systems and time-management to students. I have extensive experience with both highly accomplished and capable students as well as those who are struggling with the basics.
I have a bachelor's degree magna cum laude from U.C. Berkeley in Zoology.
