Linfield College (Exercise Science)
Colorado State University (Master's)
Colorado State University (PhD)
Hi, I am Nellie, and I have a PhD in Health and Exercise Science. I love tutoring the sciences and math, particularly health sciences and science as it relates to human physiology. I graduated from Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon in 2008, in May 2010 received my Master's in Health and Exercise Science from Colorado State, and in 2013 received my doctorate in Human Bioenergetics.
I have tutored undergraduates at multiple institutes in subjects ranging from biology, chemistry, anatomy, physiology, and other human performance subjects. I have spent many classroom hours in the basic sciences, and feel confident tutoring a wide variety of science-based courses. My efforts were rewarded in 2007 when Linfield awarded me the Outstanding Tutor Award, due to the large influence I made with my students, and the nearly perfect passing rate of my clients.
I am an extremely extroverted, active tutor, and am interested in working with all age levels. I look forward to hearing from you, and hope you'll keep me in mind for your tutoring needs.

I know she is very busy and told me that there some days that she couldn't tutor my daughter. I understood since she is a graduate student and has classes to teach herself. When I call her and told her that my daughter has a test the next 2 days she found the time and went the extra mile to help her. I really really thank her for that. She is very good person and tutor. She is always very interested to help my daughter.
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.
Biochemistry is hard. Let me help! As an undergraduate, I aced this course, including the laboratory. Now, as a researcher in a biochemistry lab, I utilize much of this knowledge in my day-to-day activities. Let me help you master what is a challenging, yet extremely interesting course.
I have extensive experience with all levels of biology - introduction to biology, cell biology, genetics of biology, and pretty much everything in between. As a cell biologist myself, not only am I up to date on this material, but I use it on a daily basis in the lab. I've also tutored these courses at two institutions, Linfield College and CSU, making my expertise even greater. Please contact me for more information on biology tutoring!
I have extensive experience tutoring general chemistry, both at my undergraduate institution and at CSU. Cumulatively, I have over 8 years of general chemistry tutoring experience, and a high success rate of students who pass. In addition to tutoring the course, I am also very familiar with the laboratory course.
This is my favorite course to tutor. Not only do I have my PhD in the human physiology field, but I immensely enjoy helping students with this class. I have experience at 2 institutions tutoring this class, as well as the recitation and laboratory courses, with over 6 years' experience tutoring this subject.
