About Jimmy

Hi! My name is Jimmy and I am a tutor focusing on Biological and Environmental science. I graduated from Georgia Southern University with a B.S. in Biology. Beyond that during graduate school (also at GSU) I taught Environmental Biology Labs (4 sections) and took part in the Molecular Biology Initiative, which is a program funded by the National Science Foundation that places biology graduate students like myself into high school science courses to integrate molecular biology practices into the standard curriculum. I worked with local teachers to create lesson plans that focused on the weekly subject matter and tied in to molecular biology or advanced biological techniques which I employed in my research.

I am a very easy going person who is very patient and loves to teach. The way that I like to help students is by getting a general idea of the subject matter that we will focus on and to create a lesson plan designed to highlight the main ideas of the material. This can be done by creating PowerPoint presentations that can be used for study material, quizzes to assess understanding of the material, and review sessions used to strengthen and reinforce your grasp on the subject matter.

During completion of my B.S. in Biology my course work focused on genetics, evolution and ecology. In my graduate research I continued my interest and study of genetics and molecular biology with research that focuses on genetic variability of invasive species. Also during grad school I taught environmental biology to undergraduates at Georgia Southern University and Environmental Science to freshmen at Bradwell Institute in Hinesville, GA.

If you are looking for help in molecular biology, environmental science, genetics, ecology, or biology in general, we can create a study plan and lessons to help pinpoint what needs to be focused on to achieve your goals. Let's work together to get you loving science! :D

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

During my undergraduate career in biology, I focused mainly on genetics and evolution. Some courses that I took include General Genetics, Eukaryotic Cell Genetics, and Human Genetics. In addition to course material, I also took part in an undergraduate research project focusing on assessing population genetics of the Florida Scrub Lizard, Sceloporus woodii. During my graduate research I used molecular biological techniques to compare the genetic variability of the invasive species Megacopta cribaria, also known as kudzu bug, to that of populations found in the home range of China.
