Cornell University (Animal Science)
University of Chicago (PhD)
I have a PhD in Microbiology from The University of Chicago with additional emphasis in Immunology and Genetics. I also graduated from Cornell University cum laude with a BS in Animal Science. I have a wide variety of academic and professional experiences that have provided me with a unique outlook that is an asset when working with a variety of individual personalities. I am currently working in virology research in Manhattan and looking to spend some more time teaching. I find a one-on-one teaching setting to be the most effective and rewarding.
I feel that the best way to begin an interaction between student and mentor is to establish expectations for the time spent working together so that the student and parent are fully satisfied with the tutoring.
I have been tutoring professionally for several years, with students ranging from in elementary through college mathematics, science, and writing. I have also mentored several undergraduate and graduate students in the laboratory, and have more formal experience from teaching assistantships in virology, host-pathogen interactions, and molecular biology.
I am a visual learner and often find that drawing diagrams and writing organized study sheets are a very helpful way to master concepts and retain information. I think selecting informative sample problems is also a great way to get things started. I am very skilled at phrasing information in multiple ways to tailor a concept to someone's unique way of learning.
I am available evenings and weekends, anywhere accessible via NYC transit. I have a PhD in Microbiology from The University of Chicago with additional emphasis in Immunology and Genetics.

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.
During my doctoral dissertation, I focused heavily on mouse genetics and positional cloning. I have published my work on these genetic experiments in peer-reviewed articles in the Journal of Virology, Immunity, and Science.
I also took genetics courses during my undergraduate education, in which I received very high marks.
I have a PhD from Microbiology from the University of Chicago. I was a teaching assistant for three Microbiology undergraduate/graduate level courses including, Virology, Molecular Biology, and Host/Pathogen Interactions. I also mentored several undergraduate/graduate students and technicians in the laboratory.
