About Gretchen

I have over thirteen years of experience teaching topics in biology in a wide range of academic levels, including English Language Learners, remedial, and Advanced Placement.

I specialize in fun ways to learn the material including the use of analogies and connections to real life. We can create memory tools together so that the material will be personal to you.

**Because I have gotten many new students lately, I can no longer tutor students in their homes. I meet students on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the following locations:
Hickory Corner Library in East Windsor
West Windsor Library in Princeton Junction
Memorial Library in Hightstown

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biology

Biology is my passion! I enjoy helping students learn the intricate details of biological processes and make connections to the larger themes in the subject.

I have over a decade of experience teaching AP Biology. My students consistently achieve excellent scores on the College Board exam and the cumulative average of their scores is above 4.5.

Genetics

I hold a BS in biology which included upper level coursework in genetics. For the past 11 years I have taught Advanced Placement biology which includes college level topics in genetics. I currently have 20 students that I tutor on a regular basis and nearly 75% of them come to me for AP biology help therefor on a regular basis I work with genetics topics, including molecular genetics and patterns of inheritance.
