About Dustin

I am currently a research specialist at Hopkins and I want to share my love of learning and science. I am exceptional at explaining scientific concepts to others in a way that they can comprehend, using analogies that relate to the individual I am tutoring. I have over 850 hours of tutoring experience and I try to be vary flexible about meeting times and places. I have worked with predominantly undergraduate students, but I have also tutored high school as well as graduate students.

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.

Biostatistics

I worked in basic science research laboratories for 10+ years. During my career, I have had to perform statistics on the data that result from the experiments I and other have performed. I have taken Statistics class as an undergrad as well as "Overview of Bioinformatics and Genomics" and "Method and Logic in Biology" during my graduate work.

Botany

I have take a number of classes dealing with Botany. As an undergraduate, I took "Introduction to Cell & Molecular Biology", "Introduction to Organismal & Population Biology",
"Environmental Chemistry", "Cell and Molecular Biology" as well as "Microbiology".

I have also taken the following graduate level courses:
"Advanced Plant Physiology", "Plant Molecular Biology",
"Advanced Biochemistry I", "Advanced Biochemistry II", "Molecular Aspects of Pathogenesis", "Biochemistry" as well as "Cellular Biology"

The classes, in conjunction with my research using Arabidopsis thaliana and various Brassica oleracea strains, gave me an excellent grasp of Botany.

Genetics

I have take a number of classes dealing with Genetics. As an undergraduate, I took "Genetics" as well as "Molecular Genetics". I have also taken the following graduate level courses:
"Advanced Genetics I"
"Advanced Genetics II"
"Overview of Bioinformatics and Genomics"
"Fundamentals of Genetics"

Zoology

I have take a number of classes dealing with Zoology. As an undergraduate, I took "Introduction to Cell & Molecular Biology", "Introduction to Organismal & Population Biology",
"Environmental Chemistry", "Cell and Molecular Biology" as well as "Microbiology".

I have also taken the following graduate level courses:
"Advanced Biochemistry I", "Advanced Biochemistry II", "Molecular Aspects of Pathogenesis", "Molecular Biology", "Biochemistry" as well as "Cellular Biology"

Along with my work with various animal model systems, including fruit flies, zebrafish and mice, in basic science research over the last ten years, I have an excellent grasp of Zoology.

Great with Biology

Dustin is a great tutor! He's very good with science and really enjoys talking with you about it, especially biology. He doesn't just teach science but he works with it everyday, so he has real life experiences. If you have a biology question, I'm sure he can answer it. He makes sure that you understand the information and he doesn't move on until you're ready. Dustin is very patient and relaxed,
