I have a BS in Biochemistry from Cornell University (with honors and distinction) and a PhD in Biochemistry from The Rockefeller University, although my training also encompasses neuroscience, genetics, and molecular biology. I'm enthusiastic about science, but more importantly, I approach my tutoring sessions with a sense of humor, and I have a creative style to help students better understand otherwise difficult concepts.

I have considerable expertise in the biological sciences, including general biology, genetics, cell biology, developmental biology and molecular biology. I have an extensive and highly successful record of mentoring elementary, middle school, high school, undergraduate and graduate level students (from a career spanning over 25 years). I have taught high school students, undergraduates and graduate courses, as well as medical school coursework.

I am also able to help with writing and proofreading applications, reports and essays in all fields (e.g., history, English) in addition to the biological sciences. In addition, I can help you become a better test taker.

I charge $50/hour for on-site tutoring sessions, and my schedule is flexible. We can meet at a local library or elsewhere, and on-line tutoring is also a possibility. Let me help you increase your knowledge, your confidence, and help you better prepare for exams!

I have given original presentations at research conferences and given invited hour-long seminars (over forty such invitations across the United States, Great Britain and Europe). In addition, I have assisted high school students, undergraduates and graduate students prepare presentations (critical reading of a journal article, research presentations). I have also given lectures on numerous subjects at elementary, middle, and high schools, as well as my formal teaching obligations. My audiences have ranged from a handful of students to several hundred colleagues.

Vocabulary

My vocabulary is extensive. As a voracious reader, I have gained a large vocabulary in both literature and science. I enjoy helping students gain an appreciation for the subtle nuances in definition and the appropriate choice of specific words.

Genetics

Part of the qualifications for the BS degree in Biochemistry at Cornell University was a 5 credit hour Genetics course that included lecture plus lab. Genetics was also one of my qualifying exams for my PhD at the Rockefeller University. My research program encompassed sophist genetics experiments and I have published original research in the field as well as taught Genetics at the graduate level. I am also a long-time member of the Genetics Society of America.

A tutor with an outstanding biology background

Wendi helped me to polish my med.school admissions essay. She is attentive to detail: she was able to find mistakes despite my confidence that no mistakes were present. Moreover, Wendi is sharp, so she did a lot of work in a short time.
