I'm Jacob, I am currently an undergraduate biochemistry major at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri. I am an honors student and collegiate athlete who is definitely a people person. I have had the opportunity to conduct research at my university as well as at the University of Nebraska, so I have been able to add a variety of experiences to my scientific knowledge and expertise in areas such as molecular biology, genetics, biological engineering, and biochemistry. I have worked one year as a student teaching assistant in labs such as cell biology as genetics. I love helping students get through their stumbling blocks and it is an awarding experience when I see the light bulb turn on when they finally understand a topic that they were previously confused about.

I have conducted genetic and biological engineering research at MWSU and led a team of undergraduate students to the successful completion of a chain molecule that helped explore new ways of creating asthma medicine, this research was recently published in a scientific journal. At UNL I performed research in the areas of molecular biology and biological engineering to understand the gene complexes that control the lipid production in microalgae in an effort to create a gasoline free biofuel. During this time, I also helped write a review paper on the availability and accessibility of biofuels. I am well versed in all of the topics listed and have a natural love for talking about scientific topics.

I encourage any potential students to reach out to me and check on my availability. I am focused on providing tutoring in a way that benefits you and works best to your learning style. I will normally provide you with a response within a couple hours.

Genetics,

Genetics

I have conducted multiple years of research in topics pertaining to genetics such as metabolic engineering research on methyl transferase genes in micro algae. I have also conducted research with transforming genes from one organism to another, such as yeast genes into bacteria. Likewise, I have experience with conducting cell free protein synthesis and other common genetic based research techniques. Finally, I have taken multiple classes such as molecular biology, and genetics that have to do with this subject.
Nutrition,

Nutrition

First of all, I am a collegiate cross country and track athlete, so I have first hand knowledge on creating nutritional plans to maximize performance and the right balance of macronutrients, and vitamins and minerals necessary to perform optimally. I have also taken multiple classes that pertain to the subject such as sports nutrition, and biochemistry, so I have knowledge on the function of amino acids and how the body reacts with different vitamins, minerals to function properly. Likewise, I understand the metabolic pathways that the body undertakes to break down lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins into their monomers and how the body uses these nutrients.

Great tutor, very patient

Jacob explains things very well, and he’s very patient. I definitely recommend him for anyone who struggling with a genetics course.

Sasha, 1 lesson with Jacob

Knows his stuff

Jacob has helped me twice in genetics and I really enjoy his teaching methods. I am a really shy person but he makes you feel comfortable when asking questions.

Kiara, 2 lessons with Jacob

Great Tutor

Was able to quickly schedule a lesson when I contacted him. Always gave thorough and simple explanations for concepts and formulas that where complex. A great tutor for my AP chemistry class.

Bianca, 3 lessons with Jacob

Knowledgeable

My granddaughter said she learned a lot. She seems to be more confident in the material. I'll definitely obtain his services again. I'm just happy that he was able to come to her rescue in such short notice. I really appreciated that he acknowledged the urgency of the matter and was willing to help on short notice
