About Carrie

I have 18 years of experience tutoring in math and science. I have a strong math and science foundation. I received my PhD in Molecular Genetics in 2006 from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and I currently work at Loyola University as a research scientist. I use math and science in my everyday life. My goal as a tutor is not only to help students learn math and science, but also to share my enthusiasm and passion for these subjects. When I work with students, I make sure that that they understand the concepts before moving on. I give students additional practice problems to ensure that they understand the concepts, and I have the student explain the concepts back to me.
I also help students prepare for the ACT. I provide my own materials, including actual ACT exams from previous years. I work on reviewing concepts, going through practice tests, and teaching students test taking strategies.

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 have a PhD in molecular genetics from the University of Illinois at Chicago, which I received in 2006. I currently work as a research scientist at Loyola University. I work on bladder cancer research.
After being the only freshman to take Genetics (a 300 level course) at Augustana College and doing exceptionally well, the professor asked me to tutor other students. I started tutoring in genetics in my sophomore year at Augustana College (1997).

Extremely Knowledgeable — Carrie is extremely knowledgeable, as well as very patient. It has been quite a long time since I've been exposed to mathematical formulas.

Carrie also supplied mock take home ACT tests, with detailed time breakdowns for each section. ...
