About Erin

In high school, I played the bassoon and was in All State Band and the Kansas City Youth Symphony in addition to a number of AP classes. Since then, I recently graduated Reed College out in Portland, OR with a Bachelor's in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. My undergraduate thesis was written within the chemistry department and focused on proteins directly involved in cancer. In the summer of 2015, I worked at a biological engineering lab at the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT. In addition to the wealth of knowledge I gained from these experiences, I also spent 3 years in college as an Introductory Chemistry laboratory TA, this helped cement my knowledge of basic chemistry, as well as develop techniques to explain these concepts to students.

Ever since I read the first Harry Potter book, I have loved reading. Despite being a STEM major, I spent four years in college as a leader of the literature themed dorm. This has allowed me to read and study a number of books both inside and outside the classroom. Additionally, I have taken a number of course in literature that focus on the critical theory aspect of the field.

I genuinely enjoy helping people figure out tricky concepts in fun ways, and really love working with people in an educational context. Please feel free to contact me to schedule a lesson in any number of subjects.

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.

Genetics

This last year I wrote an undergraduate thesis that heavily focused on fundamental principles of genetics and genetic laboratory work. Additionally, I took a college level course on genetics with a lab portion.

Handwriting

I re-taught myself cursive in 9th grade, and have been using it every since. This last year I taught myself Russian cursive as well. Through these two experiences I have built up a number of techniques to develop handwriting skills in both print and cursive.
