About STACY

My name is Stacy and I hold a Masters degree in organic chemistry. Currently, I am the Director of Organic Chemistry Laboratories at St. Lawrence University. In addition to the Masters degree, I also hold a Bachelors degree in Biochemistry.

I have had over 20 years experience teaching college-level class sizes from 1 to 300 in biology, human anatomy, physiology, microbiology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry.

As an educator, I think it is important for students to learn to apply the knowledge they acquire to world problems. As such, my teaching style is two-fold. First, I give students a basic overall knowledge of the concepts taught in the curriculum. Second, the student is asked to apply that knowledge in a problem-solving format so that they learn to use the skills they have learned, essentially, what an employer is looking for, when they hire.

In today's world, students need an academic advantage to get and keep a good job. My goal is, and has always been, to educate and train students to perform the tasks that they would be expected to perform as practicing scientists.

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.

Anatomy

I have taken Anatomy I and II at the college level which was a requirement toward the A.A.S. degree in Medical Laboratory Technology.

Biochemistry

I hold a B.S. in Biochemistry/Biophysics from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.

Biology

As a trained biochemist, I have take many biology courses at the college level, including, but not limited to, general biology I & II, microbiology, medical microbiology, parasitology, and cell biology.

Career Development

I have 9 years of experience in a heavily-regulated industry environment in a Training & Development capacity. I was responsible for training and developing staff for success in positions related to the manufacture of pharmaceuticals. I have experience with interview skills, and resume preparation as well.

Chemistry

As a trained biochemist, I have taken courses in general and organic chemistry, quantitative analysis, analytical chemistry, environmental toxicology, a full year of biochemistry, as well as physical chemistry.

GED

My graduate degree consists of a major, and two minors, one of which is in education. As such, I a fully qualified to assist those who want to prepare for the GED.

Genetics

As a student with a Masters degree, I have taken several courses related to Genetics at the college level. These include General Genetics, Microbial Genetics, and Cell Biology.

GRE

With a Master's degree in chemistry, I have had the opportunity to take the GRE. As such, I am able to assist individuals interested in preparing for this important exam as they apply to graduate schools.

MCAT

Currently, I teach organic chemistry at the college level and use MCAT related topics in my course. I also have a background in the main areas covered by the MCAT, including psychology, biology, and some physics.

Microbiology

In addition to taking several microbiology courses (outlined below), I have worked in a hospital microbiology lab as well as taught microbiology to nursing students at the community college level. Coursework in this subject includes:
General Microbiology, Medical Microbiology, Parasitology, and Microbial Genetics.

Organic Chemistry

As Laboratory Director for General and Organic Chemistry at a private four-year university in upstate New York, I am responsible for teaching freshman and sophomore students. Academically, I have earned a Master's degree in Organic Chemistry and have taken the following courses which demonstrate my strong background in the subject matter.
Organic Chemistry I & II, Advanced Organic Chemistry, Organic Stereochemistry, Bioorganic Chemistry and Physical Organic Chemistry. My graduate GPA was 3.7/4.0. Likewise, I have worked in the chemical industry, and have over fifteen years of college teaching experience.

Physiology

With an A.A.S. degree in Medical Laboratory Technology and a B.S. in Biochemistry, I have taken several physiology related courses. These include a full year of human physiology, as well as specialized courses in hematology (study of the blood), immunology/serology (study of the immune system), clinical chemistry, histology (study of the tissues), human disease, and medical microbiology.

Psychology

With a graduate minor in Psychology, I have taken courses in general psychology, psychology of adjustment, biopsychology, and neuroscience.

Regents

As a science teacher in a college setting with experience in biology, chemistry, physics, and environmental science, I am qualified to run review sessions for regents exams in the sciences.

Professional, sincere, knowledgeable — My granddaughter was very comfortable with Stacy and this was very important for me. He focused on her concerns, provided tips and clarity on parts of the subject matter that worried her. If there had been more available time by my granddaughter, Stacy had more plans of action. I would hire Stacy again and if my granddaughter needs more help with science next year, I will not hesitate to hire Stac ...
