About Victoria

I recently graduated from MSU Denver with my BS in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I am also a US Navy Veteran. I speak English and Basic Russian. I have been working for the past year as a general biology and genetics tutor for the university. I have a mild form of dyslexia and I suffer from fibromyalgia. I am a huge advocate for students with disabilities. We are not broken, merely different.
Biology is an amazing subject, but such a broad one that students tend to suffer even if they have an affinity for the subject. I thought I hated biology in high school, and it wasn't until I found a professor that specialized in the field of biology that I realized biology was my calling. I offer a more in depth and tailored view of biology to get my students excited. Like birds? Let's talk about bird genetics. Personally, I'm a fan of the creepy crawlies, but if you like cute and fluffy animals, let's talk about rabbit population statistics! Even if you find yourself falling in love with what you see under the microscope, we can talk about how prokaryotes communicate with one another. The list goes on and on. There is so much biology in this world, there's enough for everyone, and it is ALL wonderful!

Genetics, general biology, zoology, entomology

Because I have dyslexia, I understand how difficult reading can be. As a scientist, I also understand how incredibly boring it can be. Throughout high school I took advanced reading courses, and now I can read a 300 page book in a day. It's all about find what works for you.

I hope to hear from you soon. The quicker we start, the more fun we get to have, and the quicker we can start world domination! ;)
