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.

Elementary (K-6th)

As a former member of the Life Science Graduate Student Learning Community (LS GSLC) from Bowling Green State University, I am proud to be part of an excellent team of developers of new strategies to train the new generation of teachers and society members. I believe I can teach you science, math, Spanish and even music in a very effective manner making it fun and easy to follow and to remember.
I am a Doctor in Biology with a particular interest in understanding the basics of math, and I love to teach math. Math and science are subjects that if not well taught could be very hard to follow. I develop learning techniques that are unique to each person, and also, I love to use tools (like elementary math books) to give the students a guide with explanations to remember and read any time at home. In addition, I like to develop different ways to approach problems and solutions in order to enhance creativity. Inspiration and motivation are just few of the tools that together will allow us to build your future.

Genetics

Genetucs and Molecular Biology is the Science that Studies the genes and its structure and function. The fundaments of genetics were originally discovered and developed by Watson and Crick after his publication and discover of the DNA structure. The molecular biology central dogma is based on the fact that in the cell one gene encodes for one protein. However, in recent years and due to the advance of technology the finding of the introns and non coding DNA is shredding some light in the hypothesis that perhaps more than one protein could be express from a particular gene, due to a difference in the splicing product, that is the mechanism through which the genes are regulated, translated and expressed.

It is important also to remember that Rosellin Franklin was the crystallography women who actually was able to Perform and determine the different components of the DNA. However, her analysis did not get the attention until Watson and crick proposed their model.

Genes are the fundamental elements of the cell. The cell encodes to different proteins due to the expression of a particular ser of amino acids. 64 different combinations of amino acids are translated into proteins.

I am a Doctor in molecular biology with a tremendous passion to teach about genes and genetics. This is a very broad and in developing field of biology, where a lot is still under study and development.

Zoology

As a Biologist, I am inspired by little details and I am interested in tiny characteristics. I have studied zoology in all its extent and I have decided to pursue the study of biology of organism a little further after taking it a step forward getting my PhD in Biological Sciences.
