About Alfred


Bio

Biology is the study of life. I have always marveled in the way that the structures of organisms tiny and huge are designed and built to perform a unique role in their world. I specialize in using familiar examples and analogies to teach an appreciation for the purpose of biological mechanisms, micro to macro. Then it becomes easier to focus on and learn the details of how molecules and large structures of organisms work together. If you know why, it helps to learn how, these things work and...

Biology is the study of life. I have always marveled in the way that the structures of organisms tiny and huge are designed and built to perform a unique role in their world. I specialize in using familiar examples and analogies to teach an appreciation for the purpose of biological mechanisms, micro to macro. Then it becomes easier to focus on and learn the details of how molecules and large structures of organisms work together. If you know why, it helps to learn how, these things work and appreciate the inherent beauty of the miracle called life.

My approach to learning and teaching life sciences is to de-emphasize wrote memorization and focus on a complete understanding of basic principles

I have B.A. in Biological Sciences from Rutgers College, an M.S. in Biology from New York University and a Ph.D. in Cell Biology fro The University of Vermont where I tutored undergraduate Biology Students.

Guitar

I have been playing guitar for about 45 years now. I have formed and worked with several groups of musicians performing traditional, folk and rock music at clubs and events while in college and grad school. I play both electric and acoustic guitar and electric bass guitar and excel at improvisational solo work. I have also studied accordion and piano.

Fast communication and knowledgeable

I needed someone to go over AP Biology/Genetics material with a couple of middle school students at a very short notice. Al responded quickly with good availability options. He has an impressive research background in the subject area; his mastery of the subject area was never in question. Got good feedback from students after the session. When the need arises again, I wouldn't hesitate to contact Al again. Thank you!
