About Tristan

Greetings! I am a graduate of the University of California, Davis Biochemistry and Molecular Biology doctoral program. I taught both undergraduate and graduate courses at UC Davis as a teacher’s assistant for eight quarters – approximately two years – including introductory chemistry and biology classes and upper division biochemistry. My research has been published the journals Biochemistry, Cell Host & Microbe, Molecular and Cellular Biology and Current Protocols in Chemical Biology and I am a member of the Phi Sigma Biological Sciences Honors Society, Gamma Delta chapter. I completed a two year postdoctoral scholar appointment at the University of California, San Francisco from 2014 to 2016.

I specialize in biology, particularly molecular biology and biochemistry. I have spent most of my professional and academic careers working in life science laboratories, teaching or studying. I also have an advanced understanding of chemistry and can tutor for AP Chemistry or introductory college chemistry. I strive to prepare college-bound students for the rigors of undergraduate life, helping them develop good study habits and introducing them to resources that will aid their learning process. I am familiar with introductory and intermediate undergraduate biology and chemistry courses at UC Davis having both taken them as a student and taught them as a TA.

I generally require that lessons be scheduled at least 48 hours ahead of time. Prior to a session, please send me a brief overview of what you are studying and/or what you would like to focus on (e.g. nucleosomes, protein structure, glycolysis). I only tutor within Davis, California. That said I might be willing to travel to outlying towns - Woodland, Dixon and Winters (but not Sacramento or West Sacramento) - at $45.00/hr to cover travel expenses. Please message me the details.

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.

Biochemistry

I have a B.S. and Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from UC Davis. I have worked as teaching assistant for college-level biochemistry courses - both laboratory and lecture - and have published papers in ACS Biochemistry and Current Protocols in Chemical Biology.

Biology

I have a B.S. and Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. I have an intense interest in the biological sciences and have worked as teaching assistant for college-level introductory biology courses. I have also privately tutored college-level biology in the past.

Chemistry

I have a B.S. and Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from UC Davis. I have worked as teaching assistant for college-level introductory chemical courses - supervising laboratory sessions, holding office hours and discussion sections, and grading papers - multiple times. In addition, I regularly used basic chemical calculations (i.e. molarity, pH determination) when working in lab as a graduate student.
