About David

I am a scientist with 12 years of research experience in genetics and molecular biology. I work at the University of California, Berkeley, where my projects relate to stem cell/regenerative medicine, cancer biology and neuroscience. I have a comprehensive knowledge of biological concepts and an extensive general expertise in natural sciences. I am also a skilled writer and writing instructor. I provide the following tutoring services:

-Personalized instruction in the natural sciences for students from high school through graduate school.

-Assistance in all phases of the writing process for the preparation of scientific reports, such as reviews of scientific journal articles or original scientific manuscripts.

-Feedback and strategic advice on presentations for meetings, conferences, and interviews.

-Guidance and editing of personal essays for applications to college and graduate school.

-I provide mentoring for individuals considering a career in research science, and I specialize in assistance in communication for individuals for whom English is a second language..

I am located on the main campus of UC Berkeley. During the week, I can generally arrange 1hr lessons or tutoring sessions during work hours. Remote Skype sessions are an option for off hours. I am often available weekends. Rates for writing/editing services are negotiable on a job-by-job basis.
