About Fiona

I will be graduating University of Illinois at Chicago in December 2016 with a biological science major and sociology minor. I plan to attend medical school the Fall of 2017 with a goal of a MD/MPA dual degree. I am currently President of Primo Dance Troupe, UIC's collegiate hip hop dance team. Soon, I also hope to be a certified dance fitness instructor. My past experience includes teaching biblical studies, early childhood academia, and golf. I have experience teaching kids of all ages from toddlers to middle school aged.

Numbers come easy to me. I never had to take a math class in college because I received AP credit in high school. I revisit my skills through Chemistry and Physics now.

I am a biological science major at UIC.

Learning and teaching should be fun. I believe your mind and body should be equally exercised.

I'm very friendly so please contact me with any further questions!

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 will be graduating University of Illinois at Chicago in December 2016 as a biological science major. I have passed a genetics course and genetics lab. I currently work under a genetic professor on an evolutionary development project on the Nasonia wasp. My job is to produce forward and reverse primers, PCR 1, PCR 2, and dsRNA; perform RNAi knockdowns of five genes (emp, tty, grain, traf4, and novel); and perform in situ hybridization of Toll and dpp genes.

Sociology

I will be graduating University of Illinois at Chicago in December 2016 as a biological science major and a sociology minor. I have presented at UIC's Undergraduate Research Forum for my independent research on Two Indonesian Women's Narratives on How Cultural Buffers Diminish Racial Discrimination. Currently, I am a research assistant under the sociology department chair on a project to code government mandated documents on autism funding. From this research, I hope to publish a paper and present again at the forum.
