About Charles

My philosophy: (1) the job of a good teacher is to make things seem simple; (2) the job of a good student is to realize that they're not. I have a Bachelors degree in biology, and a PhD in Cell Biology from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. I've traveled all over the world for work and here's the proof: I can say "thank you" in 25 languages because that's the first thing I always learn in a new place.

I am currently working as a consultant for a number of organizations, but have spare time to teach. I grew up in Michigan, and have lived in three foreign countries: India, Switzerland and New York. I have taught previously for 2 years at the University of Michigan; 3 years as an Assistant Professor at Howard University in Washington DC; 3 years as an Adjunct Scientist at Columbia University; and 2 weeks as a guest lecturer at Tehran University in Iran.

I love science. Success in the modern world depends on your understanding of science. Unfortunately, most textbooks and teaching styles make it seem dry and irrelevant. My job is to overcome that problem.

You should only contact me if you (a) want to learn and (b) want to laugh while doing it.

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 have a PhD in Cell, Developmental and Neurobiology from the University of Michigan Medical School. My doctoral research was in a field of molecular biology. I have taught genetics as an Assistant Professor at Howard University.
