About Christina

Hello there!

I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor's degree in Medicinal Chemistry from the University at Buffalo in New York. I worked as a tutor for 3 years covering math up to Calculus II, General and Organic Chemistry, Physics, and Biology. I have spent some time as a graduate student at the University of Kansas but I would love to get to know my students and help them succeed.

I am available at any time convenient for you. I also offer skype sessions if those are more convenient. Please feel free to email me.

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 graduated with a BS degree in Medicinal Chemistry in 2014 which has a strong biology/biochemistry component. I have also tutored Evolutionary Biology and Cell Biology courses at the undergraduate level, which is usually a requirement for premed/prepharm students.

Chemistry

I have tutored general chemistry (Chem 101/102) courses for more than 3 years including topics such as dimensional analysis, balancing equations, acid and base chemistry, using equations, using the periodic table, moles, the gas law equation, and how to apply these concepts to word problems. I also graduated in 2014 with a BS in Medicinal Chemistry and have spent 1 year as a graduate student in chemistry which involved laboratory work in chemistry. This experience adds to my ability to apply the basic concepts and principles learned in general chemistry to real life/career/life sciences, which I believe helps students become more engaged in the material.

Organic Chemistry

I have a BS degree in Medicinal Chemistry in which the curriculum was heavily focuses on organic synthesis and spectroscopy along with the biological applications of these topics. I have tutored organic chemistry courses involving mechanisms, short answers, predict the products, and spectroscopy problems. I have also spent the last 2 years working in organic synthesis and have been exposed to many named reactions as well as practical knowledge of the topics being taught in most sophomore and higher level organic chemistry courses.

Pharmacology

I received a BS in Medicinal Chemistry with a minor in Pharmacology and Toxicology. These subjects are very intertwined and I have applied my knowledge of chemistry and the study skills I learned to learning and tutoring pharmacology.

Throughout my graduate coursework, I also fined tuned my knowledge of clinical applications of pharmacology that would be more relevant to prepharmacy/premedicine students.

Physiology

To receive my BS degree in Medicinal Chemistry with a minor in Pharmacology and Toxicology, I had to complete 6 credits (2 3 credit courses) in human physiology. During my time as a graduate student in Medicinal Chemistry, I also had to complete a 1 credit course in human physiology. In addition, physiology is the basis for pharmacology, and it is very important to remember the fundamentals when applying physiology. I believe my knowledge of pharmacology and toxicology has emphasized these fundamentals in a way that is logical and rational, and will make me a more effective physiology tutor.
