About Sara

I have taught college-level biology for 15 years before turning to independent consulting, writing and teaching. Courses I have taught includes general Biology, Molecular Biology, Cell biology, Genetics, Microbiology and Ecology. I have been a consultant for the College Board for the past 10 years, serving as a reviewer and reader (grader of essays) for the AP Biology course. I have tutored one student for AP Biology who earned a 5. I also have been leading teacher training for the past 4 years, focusing on effective communication that takes into account how the brain learns. I love learning and teaching. If you are a highly motivated student, ready and willing to do your very best, then I am the tutor for you!

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 taught college level genetics for 5 years at California State University Bakersfield and taught the laboratory at SUNY Brockport for one year. I also ran a microbial genetics laboratory for 10 years.

Microbiology

I have a Doctorate in Microbiology. I have written five peer-reviewed research papers and taught Microbiology for ten years.
