About Jay

I'm a marine biologist. I have over 10 years of experience with tutoring, and have tutored students in middle school, high school, and college. Some of my favorite subjects to tutor include biology, ecology, environmental science, and any kind of U.S. government/politics.

I have my PhD in Biology and my research focuses on invertebrates in the ocean. I've studied many species of cnidarians, mollusks, and echinoderms in my work. I was recently hired as an assistant professor to teach Zoology at a liberal arts school in Pennsylvania, and will be starting in Fall 2016.

What I love most about tutoring is watching a student grasp a complex idea and being able to synthesize new concepts throughout a course. It's incredibly rewarding to watch that happen, and as a tutor I strive to develop critical thinking skills by asking open-ended questions and interactive discussions.

I'm currently a marine biologist in Maine and I'll be starting as a biology professor this fall. I'm an active researcher and have studied many types of organisms and ecosystems from the tropics to Antarctica. With me, you'll get hands-on knowledge of biology and learn about the importance of understanding concepts within the field and how to apply them to your own career path.

I let my hands-on experience in marine biology guide my tutoring. I've had many exciting adventures that have helped me grow as an educator, and I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

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.
