About Genevieve

I graduated from Hamline University in May 2015 with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and a Bachelors of Arts in Native American Studies. I have two years of experience as a college-level Biology tutor. My position was a drop-in tutor, meaning students came to see me during office hours. I helped with specific concepts/problems, test preparation and review, and development of study skills. My coursework in biology includes Ecology & Evolution, Plant & Animal Physiology, Genetics, Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Anatomy & Physiology, and Immunology. Additionally, I have completed two summers of biomedical research, one in fatty acid research at Sanford Research in Sioux Falls, SD and one in neurology and genetics at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA. I graduated with a 3.98 GPA and honestly love learning and developing new study skills, so sharing that love of knowledge is a passion of mine!

I prefer to tutor Biology and test prep, including ACT and MCAT test prep. I did very well on the ACT, scoring in the 95th percentile. I also did very well on the MCAT (2015 version) and intend to apply to medical school in 2016. One of my passions in the field of tutoring is teaching others not just what to study, but how to study. That's probably one of the reasons I love test prep tutoring! I have some recent previous experience as an ACT tutor.

I also have coursework experience in general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, cal, math (up to the Calculus 2 level), Native American Studies, Art History and writing. I took two Art History classes in college, LOVED them, and never scored less than a 98% on any of my Art History exams. So, although I did not major in this topic, I thoroughly enjoyed it and would be happy to tutor on how to properly study for Art History Exams.

I have previous experience as an ACT tutor, in addition to my two years paid experience as a college level tutor. I scored very well on all aspects of the ACT when I was in high school (total score in the 95th percentile). I am familiar with math concepts up to the level of calculus 2, although I really love and prefer tutoring algebra!

I am probably the biggest biology nerd you'll ever meet. I absolutely love the field! One of my degrees (my bachelor of science) is in Biology, and I was pre-med in college. Not only have I studied biology, but I have 2 years of paid professional tutoring experience in Biology and I have hands on, real-word, biomedical research experience, too. I love working with young students who are curious about a career in the sciences, and helping them figure out how to study in a way that is effective and fun!

Since high school I've absolutely loved writing. I received almost a perfect score on my ACT reading/English categories, and scored in the 95% in my verbal reasoning MCAT exam portion. I'm passionate about professional writing, especially in the context of science. Because of my biomedical research experience, I was able to hone and practice my passion for scientific writing--which basically means learning how to effectively communicate a point to a wide audience in a concise way.

If you're looking for a non-judgemental, experienced, and professional tutor, please feel free to reach out to me. I'm extremely passionate about tutoring and learning and I would love to help you on your journey!

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

My BS is in Biology. I got a A in college level Genetics. In Addition, I worked for 3 months in a pediatric genetics ophthalmology lab at Harvard Medical School where I not only work with DT-MRI but also completed plenty of PCR and Sanger Sequencing. Additionally, a lot of my time during my two years as a college level (paid) Biology tutor was spent working with sophomores who were, at the time, needing help with their genetics course. I feel confident in my skills and knowledge on this subject.

MCAT

I took the MCAT in January 2015. This means I took the old MCAT. However, all of the content I studied for this is still relevant to the new MCAT. I scored a 30 on the 2015 MCAT, which is considered a competitive score. I scored an 11 on verbal reasoning (which is in the 95 percentile), a 10 on physical sciences, and a 9 on biological sciences. I took an MCAT prep course, studied for it for two years, and I feel confident in my ability to tutor on how to study for it.
