During all my life I have really enjoyed teaching other people. I started very young by teaching my little brother and sister at home. I think teaching is a quality that a scientist needs to know very well, because it is a fundamental tool that needs to be understood for all the population. Teaching science in an easy to understand language can sometimes be difficult, but it is also really rewarding.

Teaching allows me to fulfill what I believe to be a fundamental responsibility of biologists: to communicate information to the public so they can make informed decisions regarding their knowledge. There are some basic biological principles that should be understood by the entire world. Among these are the basic process of cell division and reproduction, so as basic understanding of genetics, the interdependence of biological systems, levels of organization in biology, and the basics of scientific decision-making. I also want students to appreciate and value biological diversity and to leave my class with an increased sense of the importance of science for the development of the country. Also I want them to be critical thinkers about science. I

I have a bachelor in Biochemistry, a master's in Molecular Biology and a PhD in basic neuroscience. I have been a particular tutor almost all my live and also I have teach at university level to first and second year medical and odontologist. I believe that my strong experience together with my passion for teaching and education makes me a valuable candidate to be your tutor.

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 am a visiting fellow at the NIH and I use biostatistics regularly in my daily work in order to analyze my results and to check their viability. So I am really used to biostatistics at different levels.

Chemistry

I am a Doctor in Neuroscience with a Bachelor in Biochemistry. I used to teach Chemistry at different levels and in different languages.

Microbiology

Broad experience in teaching microbiology at different levels. I posses a PhD in basic science with a lot of microbiology techniques performed.
I am a very dynamic tutor that loves to teach in an easy way that all the students can understand

Pharmacology

I took a couple of pharmacology classes during my bachelor. Besides that my PhD was the study of the effects of different drugs on cell migration. I am used to analyze Kd values so as EC50, concentrations, cell death, toxicity and other important features that you need to take into account for specific drug administration.

Spanish

I am Spanish speaker (native Spanish) and I have taught Spanish at different levels in different countries.
