About Steve

I have more than 20 years of teaching experience in schools ranging from large research universities, to small community colleges. I use student-centered active learning techniques in the classroom, and also when helping students 1 on 1. My areas of expertise are very broad and include subjects ranging from genetics and cell biology to ecology and animal behavior. My research has spanned subjects as diverse as retroviral oncology and population and community ecology of African savannas. These days, the most common subjects for me to teach are human and comparative anatomy and physiology, general biology, genetics, evolution, and ecology. These are the topics I enjoy teaching the most, and most look forward to tutoring as well.

I live and work in the SF east bay but can travel anywhere in the area. When tutoring students, I prefer to know the topics that you need help with, the text you are using, and the course it is for. Optionally, if you are trying to prepare for an exam, old exams that provide insight into the style of the teacher/professor are also useful. I am available most evenings and weekends, and some afternoons. Just email me with your needs and the times that you are available, and we can find a good time to work.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biology

I am a professor in biology at the University of California. I formerly was biology faculty at the University of Texas Austin. Over the last decades, I have taught courses in every field of biology from virology and molecular biology, to ecology and evolution.

Genetics

I have taught introductory genetics at the University of California, Berkeley, the University of Texas, Austin, and numerous community colleges and liberal arts colleges. Additionally, I teach upper division genetics at UT Austin.

Zoology

Zoology, most specifically mammalogy and herpetology, is my area of expertise, and the area of my own research. I also teach it at UC Berkeley.
