About Kit

I recently graduated from Tufts University with a BS in Biology (magna cum laude). As a Head Tutor with the Tufts Academic Resource Center, I underwent over 50 hours of training and have extensive experience working with both individuals and groups across a number of scientific subjects. Enthusiasm, curiosity, and real-world applications are my chief teaching principles.
Between formal university-level classes and four years of lab and field work, I have experience in and out of the classroom. I am excited to work with students of all ages and academic levels!

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.

Botany

I've taken 6 university-level botany/botany-incorporated courses: most notably Plant Development, Plant Physiology, Plants and Humanity, and Ecological Experiments. I've also completed numerous field-based research projects on ant-plant ecology as well as lab-based research on plant development and tea polyphenolics. I'm also a huge Euell Gibbons enthusiast and love connecting with plants through gardening and foraging.

Genetics

I conducted research and trained others in a molecular systematics lab (Pritzker Lab, Field Museum) for four summers. My primary research methods focused on contemporary DNA-based assays. Also, as a Head Tutor for the Tufts University Academic Resource Center, one of my specialties was genetics. Besides taking Genetics at the university level, I successfully completed Molecular Biology, Biology of Aging (2/3 of which was molecularly focused), and Microbiology (which included genetics and contemporary methods such as CRISPR/cas9).

Organic Chemistry

I loved every minute of Organic Chemistry 1 last fall, ranking in the top percentile of the class. I'm a firm believer that a solid grasp of the foundations is the key to success, as the material is cumulative. I also am a vocal advocate for colored pens when working through arrow pushing mechanisms! While I have not professionally tutored this subject before, I do have extensive experience tutoring within the field of science and am confident that adding organic chem to my profile would be seamless.
