About Ben

I am a recent graduate from the doctoral program of the environmental and plant biology department at Ohio University and have been teaching at Marietta College in the biology department. I enjoy teaching and introducing difficult subjects in a fun and exciting way to students.

My graduate and undergraduate degrees are in plant biology and biology, respectively. In those nine years of education I have taken multiple classes in biology, plant biology, ecology, evolution, and genetics. In addition, I have one year of college teaching under my belt and have taught flowering plants, biology, biology lab, medical botany, and genetics.

Photography has been a hobby of mine for the past 10 years and over time I have acquired skills essential for nature photography and photography in general.

If you have any questions about me, the subjects I tutor in, or scheduling times, just let me know!

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.

Botany

My PhD is in plant biology (botany) and I have been teaching botany related classes for the past year at Marietta College. These courses include flowering plants and medical botany. During my doctoral studies I have also taught the plant structure and development labs.

Genetics

My PhD doctoral degree is in plant biology during which I have learned to conduct various phylogenetic analyses, which are genetics based. I have also taken a graduate level genetics course at Ohio University and taught an undergraduate level genetics course at Marietta College. I incorporate real life experiences and practical applications of genetics that make it interesting and exciting to students.

Photography

I have been interested in nature photography for the past ten years, during which I have acquired basic and advanced skills essential to photography in general. I am able to guide the student in composition, light metering, and various post production programs such as Adobe Photoshop.
