About Felix E.

Sharing my knowledge in my areas of expertise and contributing to your educational experience through conventional and innovative teaching methods is one of the main goals in my scientific and teaching career. For this reason, I have sought out opportunities to share my enthusiasm in different biological sciences (e.g. biology, microbiology, immunology biochemistry, molecular biology), written communication, and research methods at different levels. My approach is student-centered, and the main goal is helping you make academic progress and learn.

I earned a PhD in Microbiology from the University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus, and completed a postdoctoral appointment at the Bloomberg School of Public Health of the Johns Hopkins University to further enhance my biological, microbiological, writing (scientific and non-scientific), and scientific methods.

I obtained specialty in science teaching as a Science Teaching Fellow of the American Society of Microbiology, which is a highly selective and focused training program in which fellows enhance their science teaching skills with in-depth webinars, pre-and post-assignments, structured mentoring, and community practice. I have been able to put into practice the science teaching training by being an Adjunct Professor in various universities of the South Florida region.

My teaching philosophy is not limited to helping you remember and understand the material but also to help you apply, be analytic, able to evaluate the material, and be creative in your biological sciences, research methods, and written communication. In addition, I will teach you in a progressive manner, provide the necessary feedback, and be encouraging. Through this group of strategies we can have an excellent teacher-student experience and at the same time excel your learning.

Looking forward to sharing my knowledge and teaching you!

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.

Biochemistry

I earned a PhD in Microbiology (2010) at the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine, further expanded my Microbiological expertise with a 3-year postdoctoral appointment at the top-ranked Bloomberg School of Public Health of the Johns Hopkins University (2010 to 2013).

Throughout my PhD and Postdoctoral appointments, past and current teaching experiences as professor (in the South Florida region), I have mentored and taught students from different levels of Biology Sciences, including high school students in Science Fair projects, undergraduate students seeking mentorship in career development, and supervising graduate students. More importantly, I have mentored and taught students from different backgrounds.

In addition, I obtained Science Teaching Fellow of the American Society for Microbiology. In this program, we get exposed to the most innovative strategies for teaching in biological sciences. The training in this fellowship further contributes to my qualifications as an educator in biological sciences, including Biochemistry.

Proofreading

During my years as a scientist, from the being a PhD student and now as an early career scientist and educator, I have continuously polished my writing expertise to better communicate my ideas with the reader in mind. That is the key: rather than writing for ourselves, we must consider if what we write is understandable and the ideas can be easily identified by the reader. As a result, I have been invited to work as editor of scientific newsletter and journals, Ad-Hoc reviewer of scientific journals, and contract developmental editor. Currently, I am a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Postdoctoral Research, and also work as freelance editor (copyediting, proofreading, and developmental editing). In summary, my qualifications and experience as a writer and editor will lead to quality teaching to improve and help you with your writing.

Dr. R. is well organized and has an efficient teaching style. — I am starting to look forward to my final exam. Before the last several semesters, I didn't realize how important performing well in my classes were. Unfortunately for me, the consequences of waking up late is lacking the ability to prepare for studies properly. My friends were getting A's and it was taking me twice as long as them to prepare for the same exams while only receiving B's. Besides th ...
