Istituto Professionale di Stato dell'agraria di Pistoia, Italia
University of Torino, Italy (Master's)
I have 13 years as Laboratory Instructor in a premier New York High School. And I have received commendations for teaching award winning students in a prestigious science competition (sponsored by New York Academy of Science and Technology). I am very experienced in teaching science (biology, genetics).
I have an excellent background in molecular biology (genetics, Mendel and beyond, DNA and its role in heredity, protein synthesis and recombinant technology, etc. I graduated from the University of Torino, Italy with a degree of doctor in agricultural technology (evaluated as M.Sc here in the U.S.A.). I speak and write both in English and Italian.

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.
I have a Msc degree in Agriculture Technology with strong emphasis in molecular biology. And I have been a laboratory instructor in biotechnology for over 13 years now in the New York City public school system. Good teachers know the value of a theme. And fortunately, biology lends itself to this approach. The theme may determine whether students will understand and how attentive they will be. It will help them to focus attention; it unifies the presentation and helps the students to understand what I say and to remember. I naturally favor dividing theme into subdivisions- because each of this will add to the students understanding of the subject and will show connections between points of proof and the main idea. And in this case, use of questions, view point or leading questions are priceless. However these questions must be of the right sort and must be framed in a way that stimulates the thinking of the students. Use of real life experiences is another good way to get the students motivated. However if the experience is remembered but the instruction that goes with it is forgotten, then I have lost my students. The experiences should lay the ground work for some significant aspect of the body of the instruction. Some aspects of genetics may actually seem shrouded in obscurity, particularly when we begin to dig deep, but a systematic approach will alleviate some of the problems. Genetics especially applied genetics is playing a very important role in opening up new vistas in many fields, chemistry, physics and biology, with unlimited potential in genetic engineering for improving both human life and in the food industry.
