About Brandon

I'm a marine biologist, and master's student at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I am in the geography department.

I have a broad background in the sciences which as allowed me to participate in many different exotic field locations. In between lessons, be sure to ask me about some of the more fun adventures I've had in such places as the Amazon, or offshore fishing ground of the North Atlantic. I should be able to relate your studies to real world experiences. If you work hard and study now you can achieve the future you desire.

I have professional tutoring experience through teaching math and biology to high school students through a variety of methods at a charter school. I have worked with various undergraduates in an advisory role in the environment of academic research.

I am the vice president of a non-profit that is primary staffed by interns from various undergraduate programs.

I will be most useful to you if you need help in subjects related to the marine biological sciences. My background encompasses a wide range in the environmental sciences. My research is in biogeography, I utilize a wide array of computer programming tools, and geostatistics.

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.

Adobe Photoshop

My experience with photoshop is primarily through editing and manipulation of my own digital photography. As an undergraduate I took several advanced photojournalism classes where I gained a foundation in using the Adobe Creative Suite programs with an emphasis on Photoshop. Over the last 10 years I have kept up to date with the most recent versions of photoshop as well as many of the cutting edge plugins. Using photoshop I have produce images that have been used on; business cards, fine art prints, and a photoessay installation in the lobby of a successful business.

Algebra 1

I use the fundamentals of algebra 1 in my studies when I work on advanced Calculus utilizing a mathematical software package. I also have professional experience tutoring math to high school student at a charter school.

Biology

Extensive background in biology and environmental sciences, from biotech genetics, to global climate models.

Photography

I have more than ten years of experience shooting and developing/post-processing. I started with black and white 35mm film and have moved into the digital realm. I have built my own darkrooms, taken advanced photography classes, and become proficient at most digital post processing programs. I have produced images that have been used on business cards, fine art prints, and a photo-essay installation in the lobby of a successful business. I taught myself underwater photography and have built my own specialty equipment to supplement commercially available housings. I also have a website of my work.
