After getting an undergrad degree in Biology from Notre Dame, a master's degree and PhD in Human Genetics from the University of Michigan, and several semesters of teaching genetics and cell biology (lab) at Eastern Michigan University as an adjunct lecturer, I decided to step back from teaching to be a stay at home mom with our three children. While working with these younger "students" has several rewards, I enjoy getting back to the business of teaching science and would be glad to bring my teaching experience to you in a tutoring setting.

My greatest joys in teaching at the collegiate level were of spending time one on one with students after class or in office hours. I do my best to listen and understand where each student is struggling to make connections necessary for understanding. It is a real thrill to see complicated areas of study become more clear as students walk with me through topics like DNA replication, pedigrees, and recombinant DNA technology -- to name a few.

I enjoy these subject areas personally and have had many years of experience in them -- both as a student and instructor. I especially love the logic behind genetics and like working with students to understand inheritance patterns and the nature of DNA.

I would welcome hearing from you to set up an initial appointment to see if you feel I would be a good fit to walk with you through your own studies!

Genetics

I have a PhD from the University of Michigan in Human Genetics with teaching experience as a graduate student (graduate classes and medical school classes). I also taught several semesters as an adjunct lecturer at Eastern Michigan University (genetics and a cell biology/genetics laboratory course). My graduate work centered on a mouse model of genetic modifiers of a bleeding disorder, while my preferred teaching areas are in classical and molecular genetics and the nature of DNA and inheritance.

Great Tutor

I hired Heidi to help my son with his college genetics class. She's very helpful and he enjoys working with her. I hope this will happen with his exams. Sometimes concepts go by too quickly in class It is wonderful to have someone so knowledgeable in genetics as a resource.

Amazing Genetics Tutor

Heidi had worked with me over the semester with college level genetics. She was extremely patient, and always took the time to answer all questions. She brought very helpful diagrams and problems to work through. Highly recommend!

Great Tutor!

Heidi helped me improve so much! Before I started with her, my exam scores were well below the class average, and by the end of the semester, my final exam grade was actually above average! She's a great tutor, and an even better one if you're prepared before every session.

Knowledgable Genetics Tutor

Heidi explained the concepts with such depth and clarity that I always came out of our sessions feeling much more confident with the materials than before. I wouldn't have been able to get an A+ without her help. I've tried a couple of other Genetics tutors before and Heidi was the most knowledgeable and helpful.

awesome**100000000000

We reviewed HGT, operons, and preferred carbon sources. I asked some clarifying questions in preparation for Friday's exam. She was very clear in her explanations. 10/10 would recommend this tutor!

The best!

Heidi was so patient and thorough that after one hour, I understood what I couldn’t fully grasp in many hours online and in the classroom.

Glenn, 3 lessons with Heidi

Knowledgeable and caring tutor

From just the first session, Heidi was incredibly helpful. She brought practice problems to the tutoring session and after the session concluded my confidence increased tremendously on the topics with which I had been previously struggling. Heidi makes the confusing topics clear!
