About Nicole

I am a recent Ph.D graduate (currently working as a postdoc) looking to tutor advanced high school students, undergraduates and graduates in the topics of Biology, Ecology, Genetics or Marine Science. I have a Ph.D in Conservation Genetics and two undergraduate degrees in Biology and Marine Science. I have taught for 6 years at the university level. My experience includes: tutoring students in field-based research projects (Intro to Marine Biology), teaching labs for Cell Biology and Genetics, lecturing in Genetics, and developing labs for conservation genetics topics.

I am a very visual person, so I generally find the best way to teach others is through aids such as diagrams, demonstrations and seeing real-world examples rather than simply reading textbooks.

I am a very good natured and out going person who has taught a wide variety of students, from helping them pass a class to helping them get an A, which ever their goal may be.

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.

Biology

I can tutor most topics in biology, although I specialize in animal biology, genetics and ecology. Mitosis and meiosis, which most students struggle with, are my specialty!

Ecology

I can tutor most terrestrial and marine ecology topics, including conservation biology, evolution and environmental issues.

Genetics

I have a PhD in conservation genetics, have lectured at a university in genetics, have taught the lab component of the class and have written a lab that is run annually at my previous place of employment (Murdoch University).

I specialize in eukaryotic genetics, Mendelian genetics, population genetics and evolution at the HS, university and graduate levels. I can also assist graduate students with population genetics software and analyses.
