About Eduardo

My name is Eduardo. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, where I completed my bachelor's degree in Industrial Biotechnology at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez. I was recruited by the National Institutes of Health's Minority Access to Research Careers (NIH-MARC) program in order to support and accelerate my transition into my Ph.D. studies. After completing my bachelor's degree, I was admitted to Stanford University, where I'm currently finishing my Ph.D. studies in Developmental Biology. I have worked as a researcher for the past 11 years. My research topics have included Genetics, Microbiology, Virology, Plant Biotechnology, and Embryology.

My experience with teaching began during my undergraduate years, when I was able to serve as a tutor in Chemistry, Math and Biology. At Stanford, I've had the opportunity to work with several organizations including the Center for Latin American Studies, Stanford Splash, and Stanford BioAIMS, offering lessons and hands-on experience in Embryology and Molecular Biology to middle school and high school students from underrepresented backgrounds. During these lessons, I try not only to communicate basic scientific principles, but also plant the seed of curiosity and excitement about the natural sciences.

Being able to communicate knowledge is just as important as producing knowledge. I believe teaching is an essential part of my experience as a researcher, and I appreciate every opportunity I get to do it. Being raised in Puerto Rico, both English and Spanish were required subjects from the 1st grade through college, and most of my Science and Math courses during college were taught using both languages. As a result, I'm able to provide lessons in either language whenever necessary. As a researcher, I'm also able to supplement my lessons with practical knowledge about how basic concepts are applied every day in the laboratory.

I look forward to serving as your tutor! Please feel free to message me if you have any questions.

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

The curriculum for my Industrial Biotechnology bachelor's degree was designed as a triple major in Biology, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. I worked in research laboratories in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology from freshman to senior year. I'm currently in the 4th year of my Ph.D. studies in Developmental Biology (Embryology), working in the Department of Genetics at Stanford. I've had the opportunity to teach Biology to middle and high school students through volunteer outreach programs on campus. I'm a really patient teacher and I am exposed to general concepts in Biology on a daily basis as part of my work. I'm able to provide students, not only with help grasping specific concepts, but also with practical knowledge about how these concepts are applied in the laboratory every day.

Genetics

My first position as a researcher during my undergraduate years was dependent on excelling at my Advanced Genetics class. As a biotechnologist and embryologist working at the Stanford Department of Genetics, I make use of general concepts and skills relevant to this subject on a daily basis. I can supplement lessons with practical knowledge about real-world applications of Genetics.

Helpful, positive experience

Eduardo was able to relate to my son well and make the topic of AP Bio more understandable for him. He was knowledgeable and patient and flexible with meeting time and location.
