Hello students! My name is Jared and I’ve spent my career learning and teaching in the area of biochemistry through my undergrad and PhD graduate work at the University of Pittsburgh to my postdoctoral studies at Dartmouth College to my assistant professor experience at Indiana University to my 300+ hours online tutoring students across the globe. Together I have 19+ years of experience teaching and tutoring students in biochemistry courses. Education involves a tremendous sacrifice of time and resources from both the teacher and the students. As a teacher, I believe that striving to establish an environment for active learning, to help students develop synthesis-driven thinking skills, and to foster student leadership qualities that will effectively facilitate student learning. When I am tutoring, my first goal is to establish an atmosphere for students to engage in active learning. I believe that planning specific objectives for individual tutoring sessions, which will provide students with a focus for the covered material. The experience of the student can be enhanced by my involvement in setting the tone for each session. I attempt to do this by being thoroughly prepared and organized, by demonstrating an other-oriented attitude, and by displaying an infectious excitement for the course content.

I won the Trustees Teaching Award through my 14+ undergraduate and graduate courses. Throughout these courses, I have provided countless hours of one-on-one tutoring in order for the students to gain a better and deeper understanding of the course content. My patience, proper guidance and intimate knowledge of the course material has been crucial for tutoring students through difficult biochemistry classes. My tutoring experience has also given me discernment to quickly identify the student's problems and rapidly provide answers to move them forward in the course. Using the online multimedia platform provided here, I am able to provide additional problems, example lecture notes and example test questions to help stud

Biochemistry

I have been teaching, tutoring and doing research in Biochemistry for over 18 years. My areas of expertise are enzyme kinetics, protein thermodynamics, and structural biology. I have intimate knowledge protein/nucleic acid/carbohydrate/lipid structure and function, central metabolic pathways (e.g. glycolysis, gluconeogenesis, TCA cycle, oxidative phosphorylation, etc.), and the biochemistry of molecular biology (DNA replication, RNA transcription, protein translation, etc.).

Examples of Expertise


Jared has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 1 question submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

Very Knowledgable Tutor for Biochemistry!

Jared C. helped me with my upper-level college biochemistry class. I had some challenging questions that I needed help on, and Jared C. was very knowledgable and gave very clear and thorough explanations. He helped me connect all the metabolic pathways together.

Great tutor

A very knowledgeable and helpful tutor. I would highly recommend to anyone. He puts in a lot of effort inside and outside of the lesson to help his students succeed.

Jake, 2 lessons with Jared

Better than a tutor, basically a professor

I was dreading second semester Biochemistry at the University of Arizona. It was much less scary when I started having lessons with Jared. He not only knows his stuff but he explains it well and thoroughly. Every question I had he had an answer AND integrated it with the current material. He is professional, funny and thorough. All around one of the best tutors I have ever encountered. He is well worth his price and then some. If you are looking for an in-person tutor you can stop here. His brilliance makes up for any technical shortcomings you may encounter.

Very Knowledgeable

Jared really knows his chemistry. He really helped me through concepts for organic, bio chem for nursing. He agreed my professor expected way too much, but was able to help me though most of the material.

Michele, 1 lesson with Jared

Knowledgeable and Fun Tutor

Jared is a great tutor! He explains things really slowly and clearly, and emphasizes the things that are most important. He also makes subjects that are confusing seam fun, which makes it a lot easier to memorize complicated concepts.

Anette, 10 lessons with Jared

Very Knowledgeable!

Jared explains biochemistry concepts very well and is extremely patient. He will explain it in another way if you are having difficulty understanding. He was very flexible and willing to work with me. I would highly recommend.

Excellent tutor, Easy to Understand

Jared really helped me understand my errors in Biology for Engineers and provided clarification for subject. Very helpful and patient. Looking forward to more sessions.

Crystal, 6 lessons with Jared

Jared really helped me understand

Jared is a great biochemist/biologist. He is very knowledgeable, and helped me understand the subject very well. Strongly recommended ----------------------10/10
