About Chris

My name is Chris and I'm a recent college graduate with a bachelors degree in biology and a minor in neuroscience. In the future I plan to go back to school and pursue a higher education with the goal of becoming a biology teacher in the future. I love explaining and teaching new things to people, especially when it comes to science. I have experience as a student-teacher in biology through an internship I participated in for a college course. In addition to this experience I also volunteer at a museum where I am required to address the public and teach visitors about my exhibit. I have experience in education through teaching self-advocacy to individuals with disabilities and am currently working towards a certification in first-responder training.

I find biology fascinating and I love explaining the science of how life works. I love explaining complex processes and helping people to understand the inner workings of biology. My goal is to one day teach and I am looking to gain experience working with students and finding the best way to explain and teach to students.

My coursework includes: Principles of Biology 1 & 2, Genetics, Ecology and Evolution, Molecular Evolution, Animal Behavior, Invertebrate Zoology, Biostatistics, Computational Biology, and Cell Physiology. I am very confident in my knowledge and would feel very comfortable tutoring high school and college level biology.

Throughout my coursework as a biology student I have been required to write lab reports and other scientific papers. Additionally, through elective courses, I have been required to write several essays and research papers. I have also taken some courses in creative writing. I feel confident in my abilities as a writer and I am a great resource for students that need help with writing research papers or wish to improve their skills as a writer.

I am dedicated, hard-working, and eager to help. My extensive knowledge and coursework in biology is a great asset and I look forward to working with students. I am available most weekdays in the evening and potentially weekends as well. Please contact me to schedule an appointment and I look forward to working with you!

Note: If you are looking for someone to do your homework for you, I am not that person. I'm here to work with you to help you learn something and earn better grades.

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.

General Computer

I have years of experience in using computers for data entry, graphic arts, video editing, gaming, and internet searches. Additionally, I have experience in using the Microsoft Office suite and I am currently working towards my certification in Microsoft Excel. I can use my experience to help individuals become familiarized with different operating systems, develop a basic proficiency with Microsoft Office programs, E-mail, typing, downloading and uploading files, and general troubleshooting.

Genetics

I have completed a Bachelor's degree in Biology from St. Mary's College of Maryland. Part of the courses required for the biology major included a genetics course with a laboratory component. Also, I completed a course called Molecular Evolution, which included advanced topis in genetics, evolution, gene sequencing, and genomics.
