About Sophia

Hello! I have a PhD in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics and a BS in Molecular Biology. I am an adjunct professor and have been tutoring students since my high school years!

I am currently available to tutor High school Biology, Honors and AP, and test prep for the NJ Biology Competency Exam. I also tutor college Biology courses, including Microbiology. I tutor online and in person within 15 miles of my home.

I am also available to proofread essays and other documents online.

Background:
I am a college Adjunct Professor with a PhD in Biomedical Sciences (concentration in Molecular Genetics and Microbiology). My Bachelor's degree was in Molecular Biology. I have been a tutor since high school and have helped in several disciplines including Algebra, Geometry, and writing.

Methods:
I try to help the student believe in themselves, to make them reach their highest potential by instilling self-confidence. I encourage and motivate. I am patient and caring. Homework will sometimes be assigned if necessary. I also make the student explain the concepts to me. This engages the student and also serves as an assessment for what still needs to be understood. Small quizzes also assist in assessing the progress being made.


Let's talk more! Contact me to discuss your needs, dates, hours, etc.

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.
