About Conor

I most recently finished a masters degree in entomology (the study of insects). My research focused on applications of insect biology and ecology in agriculture. During undergraduate, I double majored in biology (ecology/evolution specialization) and psychology. Completion of these degrees required expert understanding of the fundamental levels of biology, chemistry, mathematics, and psychology. Additionally, I am quite knowledgeable in many upper level and graduate areas of biology and psychology.

I am a lighthearted but driven tutor. Serving as a graduate teaching assistant at the university-level for 2 years, I prepared lecture materials and held office hours for the students. I often worked one-on-one with struggling students, helping them to understand difficult concepts and build the time/study management skills necessary to succeed in college courses. While most of my academic tutoring has been with college students, I have experience with communicating with younger students (elementary-high school) as a soccer coach and scuba instructor.

I am available for online tutoring only and my hourly rate begins at $30/hr for a one-time session. For students wishing to set up continuing tutor sessions, my rate drops to $20/hr for once a week meetings, and $15/ hr for twice a week meetings. I am typically available from Mon-Fri 4pm-10pm EST.

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 completed a master's degree in entomology (the study of insects) in December 2015 at a major US research university. Acceptance and completion of this program required an expert knowledge of all levels of biology, from high school to advanced graduate. My undergraduate degree was also in biology (completed in 2012)

Ecology

I completed a masters degree in entomology in December 2015 at a major US research university. My research focused on integrated pest management, an application of insect ecology to the agricultural industry. For my undergraduate bachelors degree in biology I specialized in ecology and evolution.
