About Liliana

Hi there! Are you having trouble keeping your head in the game when it comes to studying science, technology, engineering, and mathematics? Is your college application essay still a blank page or just a vague first draft? Do you have a research paper looming large on the horizon? Just need someone to sit next to you and help explain some complex stuff. Don’t sweat it! I can help you get over those hurdles. Message me and tell me what you are struggling with and we shall see what I can do for you.

I am a freelance writer who used to work as a biologist. I got my PhD, worked as a marine biologist studying how species are shaped by their environments, and then decided to move out of the lab. I’ve been a private tutor at an alternative education academy, an in-home tutor, and a university level instructor in the past. I try to make learning fun again. I’m here to help you acquire skills to make you a better captain of your own ship. Lifelong learning begins when you step out of the classroom. Whether you need help with course work or test prep, I’ve been there. There are ways to make it easier, and they involve making it work for you. You can do this.

I have a PhD in biology with training in engineering and chemistry. I’ve tutored, educated, and been a group facilitator. I’ve trained students and been a mentor to many. Science isn’t about textbooks. It’s about curiosity.

I’m a freelance writer. I work for clients from all backgrounds and want to help you communicate your ideas as clearly and truthfully as possible.

Ask any questions. It would be lovely to hear from you.

ACT Science

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.

ACT Science

I was a practicing scientist for many years before becoming a writer. I have expert insight into the scientific process. This test is about identifying the best information to find the most likely answer very quickly. This skill is not only useful in test taking, but in life! I'll try to make it fun for you! Science isn't about test taking; it's about curiosity. Let's get over this test hurdle together so you can go be curious on your own terms.

Biostatistics

As a practicing scientist, I used and applied biostatistical tests in my research. I have formal training at the graduate school level. I also have experience performing various tests using biostatistical software, such as the programming language, R. I am also versed in turning statistical results into graphical format for communication and persuasion.

Organic Chemistry

I have a PhD in biology. As a graduate student, I was an NSF fellow in a traineeship program that combined the disciplines of ecology, organic chemistry, and fluid dynamics to better understand how organisms use chemistry to communicate and survive. I took several graduate level natural products courses in addition to the organic chemistry classes required in my undergraduate biology major.

Writing

I was a practicing scientist for many years before becoming a writer. I have expert insight into both analytical and writing processes. Some of the best ways to get better at writing involve just playing with words and building a vocabulary that is a valuable toolbox. Writing isn't about test taking or having perfect grammar; it's about communication. Let's get over this communication hurdle together so your child can express him or herself in the best light possible.
