Michele helped me with a genetics assignment I had and did an excellent job going over the material and helping me go over my work.
Michele is an excellent tutor! She is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of molecular genetics, cell biology, and more. She was always prepared for a session and truly enjoyed learning about your biology topics. Her expertise allows her to explain complicated topics in a way you can easily understand. She is very patient and is always willing to explain concepts multiple times using different scenarios. Also, she was very easy to get a hold of and always had a flexible schedule to meet. I'm so glad I found Michele and so grateful for her, because I would not have been able to understand my course material without her!
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.
Extensive biochemistry experience, both academic and practical.
I have an M.S. in Genetics from University of California at Davis. I have worked four years as a senior genetic testing scientist for biotechnology companies, and done a fair amount of genetic research as part of my postdoctoral fellowships. I have taught genetics at the college level at both Hudson Valley Community College and Bennington College.
I have taught microbiology at the college level for three years, at Bennington College and Fulton-Montgomery Community College. AS I graduate student, I was a microbiology TA for three years. I worked at Stratton VA Medical Center as a Microbiologist doing laboratory research for 1 year. Much of my molecular biology research has had a strong microbiology component as well.
