About Shannin

I've been a biology nerd ever since about third grade when I outgrew wanting to 'drive trains' when I grew up. I have a PhD in biology, where I would be most useful as a tutor, but I also have experience with upper-level math, chemistry, and physics.

My PhD work was on a small protein involved in tumor cell motility. I used human cell culture to evaluate which regions of the protein were important for motility or stable cell attachments. During graduate school I taught laboratory sections of Animal Behavior, Biology II, and Evolution. I also assisted with a study section for Cell Biology.

I don't enjoy teaching in a classroom setting, but I do like to help others understand biology.

If you need help with any biology-related topic and genuinely want to understand the information you're stuffing in your head I would be happy to help with that.

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.

Genetics

I've taken graduate level genetics courses and worked in a lab that used yeast to do very cool genetic experiments in the course of their studies on the genes involved in meiosis.
