About Kyle

I completed my undergraduate degree at Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences in 2013. Soon after, I began working at a shrimp pathology laboratory in Miami as a molecular biology lab assistant researching viral and bacterial resistance in a select group of commercially aquacultured shrimp species. While working, I began my Master's degree in Marine Biology at Nova Southeastern University, where I am working on my thesis project looking at nuclear genome size diversity among marine invertebrate taxa using flow cytometry.

I have tutored in the past and enjoy helping other students learn the concepts and strategies that will help them not only in their current classes, but also help them to understand and recall facts in the long-term. I find that tutoring is as rewarding for the student as it is for the tutor because there is mutual learning between the instructor and student. I like teaching math and science because I am most passionate about those two subjects and they are most applicable in daily life.

I am a great math and science tutor because I effectively communicate the reasons behind performing certain mathematical operations and the science behind the concepts that they learn, so that the student learns and does not simply regurgitate information that we tell them. This is detrimental to long-term retention of knowledge. Improving math and science skills requires understanding the basis that provides the foundation of the concepts that are learned, upon which future knowledge is built.

I look forward to helping you improve your understanding of the concepts in math and science with which you currently struggle. We all struggle with new learning, and I am confident that I can help you master the subjects that challenge you now.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biology

My background and experience in biology is extensive, and all of my previous and current education is in the field of biology. I find biology very intriguing and my interests in the field are far-reaching. I am a great biology tutor because I convey my interests and get students to ask questions that trigger their critical thinking skills to put several concepts together, rather than thinking one-dimensionally. I enjoy tutoring biology and seeing students interested in the subject matter, as well as having students formulate their own hypotheses when studying biological concepts.

Genetics

I have an extensive background in genetics and have worked in multiple genetics laboratories throughout my career, including the lab where I am currently doing my thesis research. I enjoy teaching and talking about genetics because it is a fascinating scientific field and the knowledge we can gain from studying genetics is applicable to everyone. I am confident that my ability to teach and facilitate learning of the concepts in genetics can help students grasp the ultimate foundation for everything in biology.

Great tutor! Wish I had contacted him sooner. — After just few lessons with Kyle my son's grades in Algebra I went up from an B to a A.
