About Shelly

I have gained abundant knowledge in biology, pharmacology, genetics and medical related subjects through my graduate and undergraduate studies. I was a teaching assistant during my graduate study and taught biology-majored undergraduate students. My students' background varies a lot and I always adjust myself to meet their needs. I help with college-level and adult students studying for biology, nurse, pharmacy. I also tutor high school students studying for AP biology etc.

For biology course, the topics that I have been teaching include cell structure and function, cellular respiration, photosynthesis, meiosis, mitosis, molecular basis of inheritance, mendelian inheritance, human circulation, respiration, immune and nervous system etc. I have gained proven success in helping students improve their grades, pass exams and understand complex concepts in biology course.

For genetics course, my expertise covers nucleotide structure, transcription, translation, mutation, DNA transfer and recombination, cloning strategies, genetic pharmacology, and genetic techniques such as Gel Electrophoresis, DNA, RNA and Protein blotting, PCR. I have conducted genetic disease research, so I am able to provide first-hand information regarding development of genetic diseases and how to design scientific research.

For pharmacology course, my strengths include preclinical and clinical pharmacology. I worked in the pharmaceutical industry for several years and did many pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics research of new drug development. I am also a registered pharmacist in US and worked in hospital pharmacy and retail pharmacy where I gained abundant knowledge in clinical pharmacology. I am able to help pharmacy students and pharmacy technicians to pass license exam and provide career consultation. The type of exams that I can help with includes FPGEE, NAPLEX, PTCE.

I have also helped students to design and write lab reports in scientific format for their lab experiments in physiology and genetics courses.

I am passionate in teaching students and helping them improve their knowledge. I like the sense of accomplishment when students gain success in their classes.

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 PhD in biology and have comprehensive knowledge in teaching college level students. My past teaching topics include cellular respiration, photosynthesis, meiosis, mitosis, molecular basis of inheritance, mendelian inheritance, human circulation, respiration, immune and nervous system etc.

Genetics

I have taken genetics courses during my graduate study. It is one of the major basic courses for biology undergraduate and graduate students. This course also involves a lot of lab work. I did many DNA testing using regular and real-time PCR and know how to explain results properly by reading the pictures. Nowadays a lot of diseases have been related to genetic reasons. I have experience to apply those knowledge into pharmacotherapies.

Pharmacology

Pharmacology was my major when I was a undergraduate student. I worked in the pharmaceutical industry for several years and did many pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics research of new drugs. I am a registered pharmacist in US and worked in hospital pharmacy and retail pharmacy where I gained abundant knowledge in clinical pharmacology. I am able to help pharmacy students to pass license exam such as NAPLEX, PTCE, FPGEE and provide career consultation.
