About Raymond

Hi, My name is Raymond. I am a very experienced Research Scientist/Teacher. I hold a BS degree in Biology with a Microbiology concentration and a minor in Chemistry. I earned a MS in Biology from Eastern Michigan University through a joint program with the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, MI. I completed my PhD work at the University of Connecticut in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology (Cell Biology Division) and graduated in May of 2006. Upon graduation, I was recruited to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Harvard Medical School, where I did Breast Cancer research for four years.

During the Summers' of 2003 and 2004 I served as a Cell Biology Instructor for the University of Connecticut Health Center Department of Health Careers Opportunity Programs. The students involved in this program were Biology majors who had completed their first year of college and were considering health careers. In the Summer of 2002 I was an Introductory Biology Instructor for The University of Connecticut Academic Center for Entering Students 3000 X 2000 Program. This program targeted high school seniors who would be Biology majors upon their start in college in the Fall of 2002. I also tutored Biochemistry, Cell Biology and Immunology for The University of Connecticut Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletics as well as serving as a Mentor for the National Institutes of Health NCRR High School Student Research Apprentice Program for four Summers.

I was awarded a full fellowship from The New England Board of Higher Education upon entry into The University of Connecticut. Being fully funded, I was not required to teach as most Graduate Students were expected to do. Because of my love of teaching, I sought out as many teaching opportunities as I could.

I have taught in classrooms composed of students from multiple cultures and different learning styles. I believe every student is important and deserves individual attention if needed. I am very approachable, patient and concerned with student learning.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.

Track & Field

During my tenure in high school I qualified and placed in the state of Michigan finals in Track and Field (twice in the 4x100, 3rd in the Long Jump and 5th in the low hurdles. I was recruited by several Universities but went on to attend Eastern Michigan University because of their outstanding track program. I won four Varsity letters there, was the member of 3 Mid-American Conference winning teams and held records as a freshman. I specialize in the Long, Triple and High Jumps, Baton exchanges,hurdling, strength and endurance training and more.
