About Melinda

I have a Ph.D. in Microbiology. I taught microbiology and biology at University for 12 years. I have recently retired from being a research scientist. I have studied many things from the pathology of HIV to the affects of GMO plants on native plant propagation. I loved teaching while working at the University of California. In fact, I loved the teaching more than the research! I am not a certified instructor, but have a lot of experience teaching university students.

My intellectual strengths are the natural sciences, but I still remember most of my basic math too! I have taught microbiology lab classes, as well as basic biology. I have worked in infectious disease and plant genetics labs. I really miss teaching and hope that I can help my new community by offering my skills.

Will I make a good tutor for young adults? I believe so. I am very patient and skilled at finding different methods of explanation in order for a student to comprehend the subject. I hope that I can help your student.
