About Cristina

Currently I am working on my Masters in Biomedical Sciences and graduated from Rutgers University-New Brunswick with a B.S. in Microbial Biotechnology, B.A. in English, and a minor in Biochemistry. My professional background, I have worked as a research scientist at Rutgers University in the Bini Lab continuing studies from my undergraduate Honor’s Thesis on Hyperthremophilic bacteria ability to use alternate carbon sources as an alternative to their primary energy source. As a medical researcher at Mt. Sinai Medical School and Hospital, I worked in the Nephrology department on elucidating the mechanism of DNA/RNA pores in kidney cells.

When I was an undergraduate at Rutgers University, I became involved in the Rutgers Learning Center, where I tutored fellow students in biological sciences. I enjoyed working with the students in helping them to understand challenging concepts, problem solving skills, and finding academic success. Also, I was a Teaching Assistant for a summer chemistry program at the University, which allowed me the opportunity to work closely with both the students and the faculty. Upon graduation, I have been a private tutor while also taking continuing education classes in various biological sciences to keep up with new concepts and technologies.

I am very well-qualified and would be an asset to your student because of my industry work experience and my past experience as a private tutor and teaching assistant for the Rutgers University Learning Center. I enjoy tutoring students from all cultures by helping them build confidence in their ability to achieve academically. I have familiarity with various science resources that can be employed in tutoring sessions to aid in the students different learning styles. I have always maintained a good rapport with my colleagues, students, and parents. In addition, I feel my diverse background and skill set enable me to draw upon a variety of resources to help aid in the learning process.

I'm a terrific science tutor as I was Pre-med in my undergraduate studies, work as a research scientist and was able to apply what I have learned. Currently, I am tutoring biological sciences, chemistry, and organic chemistry, while in graduate school studying Biomedical Sciences and applying to Dental school.

I have clients that have scored in the the 90th percentile of the Regents Exams, SAT II Biology E/M, SAT II Chemistry, MCAT and DAT. Also, while helping them maintain A averages on their science and math courses.
