Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biology

I have a Ph.D. in Mol. Biol./Mol.Gen.
I am a University Professor with extensive teaching experience at all levels. I have taught for many years various disciplines of natural sciences, and served as adviser, mentor, and tutor of students and postdocts, as well as Program Director of Graduate Studies.
I relate well to learners of different ages and multicultural backgrounds. I have taught and lectured in three languages on a broad range of biological topics to diverse audiences.
I attribute an extraordinary formative power to the teaching of biology. A biological mentality makes one appreciate, relish and protect diversity, and is averse to ranking differences in terms of superiority or inferiority.

GED

I have extensive experience with tutoring high school and college students. The Science and Math components of the GED are part of my core competencies (Ph.D. in Biology). I have also authored many scientific peer-reviewed papers (48 of which are indexed in the MedLine) and written extensively on music.

General Music

I'm an expert in classical music, middle ages to contemporary. I specialize in Beethoven and Mozart. I studied and taught music analysis and music appreciation for over 20 years.
I love to do “close-reading” of major compositions, with or without score, depending on the pupil’s technical knowledge. I have done extensive cycles with educated but musically naive individuals with highly rewarding results.
I have given monographic courses on Beethoven piano sonatas, Diabelli Variations and last quartets; on Mozart Da Ponte operas, string quintets, and the mature string quartets.
In the field of opera I have offered detailed analysis of the Ring, Tristan, and Parsifal; Verdi’s work from Luisa Miller to Falstaff and the Requiem; Rossini’s opera seria.
I have also run special cycles on madrigals and motets (with scores), and romantic lieder, especially on texts set to music by different composers.
I have a large database of scores and recorded music, which I share with the pupils.

Genetics

I have a Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics (The Rockefeller University, New York, NY). I was a professor of Molecular Biology at the NYU School of Medicine for 11 years, and Director of Biomedicine, for 15 years.

Italian

Native Italian, with University degree from Italian University.
Also Ph.D. from US University.
Extensive teaching experience at all levels.
