About Shamus

I'm a recent Davidson College Graduate from the class of 2016. My major was in chemistry with a focus on biochemistry. I have tutored high school and college students for the past two and a half years and have had tremendous success. I was actually one of the few students my college recommended students and parents reach out to for tutoring. I am currently on a gap year back home before I take my next adventure to dental school. Hopefully I will be of some help to local students and help the succeed in school or possibly help with college apps. Thanks for reading and best wishes!

I have previously tutored students in the Davidson College area in pre-algebra, algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, and SAT Math prep. All of my past students have not only pulled up their grades but ended up making A's in their respective classes. I personally feel I'm a good tutor in these areas as I have taken all of these courses. Also math comes very easily to me and I strive to find ways in which my students experience the same amount of ease.

My major is in both biology and chemistry. I have taken extensive amount of coursework in both of these subjects. I have also completed three independent research projects spanning the fields of biology (genetics), chemistry (organic frug synthesis), and biochemistry (protein self association). I have also tutored both high school and college students in both subjects and in all the cases the students grade improved tremendously.

I'm eager to help students succeed in school and in life. I want you to help you get the grades you want so that your dream college isn't just a dream anymore.

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

I have taken a genetics upper level course in college and made an A in the course. The teacher was also so impressed with my work she asked me to participate in a genetics research project. During the project I helped to identify and map a gene in fruit flies that causes male sterility.

Organic Chemistry

I was chemistry/biochemistry major in college. My coursework many consisted of biochemistry and organic chemistry. I have taken organic chemistry 1&2 along with medicinal chemistry. I also have complete and organic drug synthesis research project and have a published paper from it.
