About Kaitlin

I am a graduate of Iowa State University with a Bachelors in Agronomy focusing on Plant Breeding and Biotechnology, and I'm 17 credits away from a bachelors in Genetics as well. I did work as an undergraduate TA for genetics lab for one semester and led a couple lessons as well as work one on one with many students to help them understand the material better.

I love teaching people and helping them understand so that they feel confident in their knowledge.
Originally, I started in business because I thought that I wasn't great at science, but I switched my major after taking a couple courses and talking with people in the program, so I know how difficult it can seem and how frustrating some coursework can feel. I would like to help you feel confident and comfortable in your studies as well as being excited about what you're learning.

I'm well versed in the biological sciences, especially crop related biology and genetics due to the natures of my degrees. I'm also proficient in chemistry, prealgebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, proofreading, and writing. I do love writing so if you need help with making an essay flow, or with improving your writing in general please contact me.

Feel free to contact me anytime, I will respond within 24 hours. I'm available almost any evening for online tutoring sessions and I'm available after 2 pm on Mondays and Fridays currently. I am also open to occasional sessions during the day, so contact me and we will find a time that works for both of us.

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

I have a bachelors degree in Agronomy (plant breeding and biotechnology) from Iowa State University and am 17 credits away from earning a bachelors degree in genetics from the same institution. I have led classrooms and done one on one instruction in my experience as a genetics lab undergraduate teaching assistant.

Genetics

I am 16 credits from receiving a bachelors in genetics, and I have a bachelors degree in plant breeding and biotechnology, which is very much involved in genetics. The only reason I have any time left until I receive the genetics degree is because that program requires organic chemistry while plant breeding did not. Otherwise, I would have only needed four classes total to get the genetics degree.
