About Celeste

I have a Ph.D. in Microbiology, Immunology, and Cancer from the University of Virginia. I was a TA, lab demonstrator, college tutor. I also tutored elementary to high school students part time. I enjoy teaching and take pride in imparting knowledge to my students. It is always rewarding to see students improve their grades, but most of all, I love it when they have those "eureka" moments.

I have always been excellent at Math. I scored 780 on the math section of the SAT and 800 (perfect score) on the GRE. I understand math and am able to explain it to students.

I have degrees in biology. It has always been my favorite subject. I would love to impart my knowledge and love for biology to others.

With my years of experience in tutoring, I will be able to help you learn the material, enjoy these school subjects, and improve your grades. I'm available most days and am flexible when it comes to scheduling. I look forward to meeting you.

Currently, I'm doing a post doctoral fellowship at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in Microbiology and I'm open to taking online students.

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.

Microbiology

I have a PhD in Microbiology and I tutor undergraduates in microbiology.

She gave me a few lesson in advanced immunology.I enjoyed her teaching and how she could deliver the information. When it comes to difficult subjects not every teacher can make someone understand but she can.
