About Shelley

Hi! I'm Shelley. I'm a science tutor with a Bachelor's in Biochemistry and a Doctorate in Microbiology and over 15 years of work experience in academia and industry in microbiology, chemistry, biochemistry and geochemistry. I love tutoring to share my knowledge with others and help students succeed.

I have extensive experience teaching and tutoring at the college and high school levels, and I excel at teaching difficult concepts to students one on one. I give my students real world examples and analogies to help them understand and remember difficult concepts. I've helped many students understand scientific concepts and improve their grades. I'm excited to help students meet their goals while sharing my love of science. I look forward to working with you!

Amazing Tutor!

Throughough high school and 3 years of college I have used a lot of tutors both from wyzant and otherwise. Shelley was the most accommodating and knowledgeable. She was able to meet within 24 hours of me contacting her. She makes complicated college biology and genetics topics completely understandable. Thanks Shelley!!
