About Tine

With two Masters Degrees in biology, (one from Yale), Tine specializes in college and high school biology tutoring. She helps students with high school, Honors and AP biology, as well as all college biology courses, from intro bio, genetics, cell, molecular, developmental bio, to biochemistry, physiology and others. She works a lot with pre-med, nursing and postbac students. Some college students may qualify for a significant discount on Tine's hourly rate, ask for details!
Tine will explain concepts clearly, put them into their biological context so the details all fall into place, suggest study strategies, ask you great questions to sharpen your understanding, and often share study materials. She is experienced, knowledgeable and very patient. Call her for assistance with tests, midterms/finals, academic test prep, special projects or to stay on top of or ahead of your coursework.
For writing assignments, Tine will help you structure and write up your thoughts, and apply her finely honed talent for incisive and persuasive writing using graphic word choice and unstoppable flow, to help you write papers that get you the grade.
Tine has experience working with students with focusing problems.
Tine has a car and will meet the student at their home or in the library. She requests 1 1/2 hour minimum per meeting. She is also available anytime online for meetings of any duration, even at very short notice.

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.

ACT Science

The ACT Science test evaluates scientific reasoning skills and comprehension. In graduate school (biology) I took a reading course individually with a professor, where you had to explain every diagram in a tall stack of scientific papers. Analyzing scientific information relies on understanding graphical representations of data, logic and critical thinking. I can explain the concepts clearly and help students spot key points and inconsistencies. I have 2 Master's degrees in Genetics, Molecular, Cell and Developmental biology, and did lab research for many years.

Biochemistry

Tine is a biologist with two Master's Degrees and years of experience tutoring biochemistry and other college biology subjects. She can help you understand the processes and interconnectedness of metabolic pathways in such a way that they become much easier to study for your grade. She covers synthesis, breakdown, structure and function of amino acids, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids, along with their regulation and physiological significance.

Biology

I have 2 Masters in biological sciences: Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology from CUNY, and Genetics from Yale, along with several semesters of undergraduate teaching at CUNY and 10 years of laboratory research on various topics including fruit fly genetics and evolutionary biology. I have experience tutoring high school and teaching and tutoring undergraduate biology.

Genetics

With a Master's in Genetics from Yale and one in Molecolar, Cell and Developmental Biology from CUNY, plus years of research in Drosophila genetics and genomics, I am well-equipped to help students with any topic in genetics. From basics such as pedigree analysis, Punnett squares, dominant/recessive alleles, to experimental design, gene mapping, recombination, gene regulation, genomics, transgenes, development, and population genetics.

MCAT

As a tutor specialized in college/pre-med level biology topics, and as a biologist with a thorough knowledge of all the subtopics covered on the MCAT (biochem, molecular, cell, genetics, physiology and biomedical research), I am well placed to help you prepare for the MCAT. I propose that the student complete a few practice tests, and determine which modules need the most attention. We will cover those first, with the aid of a textbook, MCAT review materials, excellent diagrams and high-tech study aids. To ascertain progress, we turn frequently to more practice questions, until the student is confident of his/her desired score.

Writing

I am experienced helping to write research papers (college, grad school, upper high school), and I can help you with organizing your thoughts and building up your argument in your papers: outline, introduction, methods & results (in the case of a research paper), literature review, discussion, abstract, and references. Plus, I can help you with sharpening up your prose, grammar and word choice, improving clarity, making the story flow, and making sure you leave no loose ends.
I am a biologist, but I have helped with papers in other fields including engineering and the social sciences. Because writing can take time, for a multi-hour assignment requiring only one car or subway trip, I take the price down. Email me for details. Thank you for your interest.

Zoology

With my background in general biology, organismal biology, genetics, evolution, and systematics, I can help students with their coursework in zoology at the college level. I have done research, graduate coursework and had Teaching assistant work in molecular systematics, invertebrate paleontology, diversity of life, human molecular evolution and speciation genetics.

Easily one of the best tutors I have ever tried — Tina always comes prepared with lesson plans, yet is flexible in her strategy depending on my needs or questions for the session. She is very patient and is always willing to re-explain subjects that I find complex or confusing. She has made an effort to best address my specific style of learning which comes from more of an engineering/kinesthetic background. The homework she gives me always helps ...
