About Kiersten

I just received my Bachelor's in Marine Biology at Rollins College in May 2012. I have had experiences in many different disciplines within Marine Biology. I have worked in a biological stockroom for four years in addition to performing experiments in a lab, so I am very familiar with scientific techniques and equipment. I have taken part in multiple field studies, where I have sampled environments and classified organisms present in that environment. I have also worked on a formal research project at Florida Atlantic University, studying the presence of a parasite in bivalve populations along the Indian River Lagoon. I have taken classes in chemistry, physics, and general biology, as well as more specific topics, such as invertebrate zoology, animal physiology, genetics, ecology, marine biology and oceanography.

I am in the process of becoming certified to teach, and in August I will begin as an English teacher.

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.
