About Zachary

Hello,

My name is Zach and I am a cancer/cell biologist. Biology is a passion of mine, not only does it shape our modern lives through medicine and technology but has also deeply influenced my worldview and personal philosophy. I know that students struggle to work their way through the large amounts of facts and terminology that are required to be proficient in science and it is my joy as a tutor to bring students beyond the facts that they have to acquire so that they can see the creative and exciting part of the field that I love. I believe that the most powerful tools a tutor can have are patience, understanding, and a sincere desire to share their subject knowledge.

As a student I have maintained a 3.5 GPA and have taken all the core science classes (multiple biology, chemistry, maths, and physics classes). I also have several years of research experience for which I have received grants and presented my findings at conferences. I have been a Teachers Assistant for general biology classes, and tutored fellow undergraduate students in biology and chemistry. Additionally, I have mentored high school students through the Frontiers of Science Institute summer camp.

I can help students in any of the following subjects:
-High school Science
-High School Algebra
-Statistics
-Introduction to Biology
-cell biology
-Microbiology
-Genetics/Molecular Genetics
-Cancer Biology
-Immunology

Thank you for reading my profile, don't hesitate to send me a message so we can develop a plan to help you succeed in your science classes!

-Zach

I have taken Algebra, Geometry and Calculus and statistics classes and can help you work through any problems from multiple points of view and using multiple methods until we find a way of thinking about math that is most effective for your learning style.

I love molecular biology and have taken a large amount of courses tailored to this feild including cell physiology, genetics, Microbiology, Biochemistry, and others. If you are looking for someone to take you beyond "just memorizing the facts" and really make biology exciting, then I am your guy!

Looking forward to reading all of your replies and to start helping you with your classes

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.

Genetics

I recently took both genetics and molecular genetics and got an A in both classes. While taking the classes I helped other students to study and and prepare for exams. Additionally I have spent a year as a research assistant in a genetics laboratory where I got hands on experience in many of the techniques that are taught in genetics classes. I feel that I can translate these experiences into effective tutoring where I not only relay the facts but also can express how exciting and important the field is.

Study Skills

I have worked closely with students as a tutor or mentor in order to develop study skills as a part of their over all learning experience. After participating in university programs to act as a mentor for high school students, I received training on how to help students develop skills and habits that boost academic success. These study skills transfer to any subject, and also to everyday life and are equally effective for students in high school, collage, and beyond.
