About Bryan

I am a math and science tutor with a Masters degree in Biology. As a tutor, I enjoy seeing students succeed in new areas and overcome subjects they may have been struggling with. My goal as a tutor is to see students learn how to become self-sufficient learners and achieve their long-term academic goals.

My tutoring skills are best geared towards college students or advanced high school students planning on a career in science. I cover topics in the life sciences including general biology, genetics, microbiology, molecular biology, and population ecology. For the non-life sciences, I cover general chemistry, geology, and environmental science. In mathematics, I currently cover statistics, algebra, and pre-calculus. Other subjects can be discussed depending on the needs of the student.

I am flexible in teaching methods and find that preparing specific questions and study topics in advance of tutoring sessions always leads to a more effective learning experience. I am also flexible on time and location for meetings. For instance, we can arrange tutoring sessions for public places (e.g., libraries or coffee shops), or at the student's home, as long as the details for tutoring sessions are pre-arranged at least 24 hours in advance. I currently offer tutoring Irvine and surrounding cities.

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a tutoring session, please feel free to send me a message here. Thanks!

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.

Biology

I have an M.S. in Biology with 6 years of tutoring and mentoring experience. I also have a diverse array of research experience including the molecular genetics of invertebrates, rodent behavior, and the genetics of human disease. I utilize a combination of teaching examples from my research background as well as relevant texts and course materials to engage students in an active learning environment.

Biostatistics

I have a Masters degree in Biology and have taken both basic and advanced statistics for the natural sciences. I also worked as a Graduate Assistant in a Population Ecology course, which made heavy use of statistics. As a graduate student I utilized Bayesian and bootstrap methods to solve problems in evolutionary biology.

Chemistry

I have one year of general chemistry and one year of organic chemistry coursework taken at the college level. I also have 3 years of experience in molecular biology.

English

My background in English writing stems from my experience writing and publishing scientific articles, as well as a Masters thesis in Biology. Depending on the students course requirements I can help improve his or her scientific writing skills, or academic essay writing.

Genetics

I have a Masters degree in Biology with an emphasis in genetics and evolution. My research revolves around the study of speciation processes and the genetic origin of disease in humans.

Statistics

My background in statistics stems from my experience as a researcher in biology and genetics. Not only do I have hands on experience conducting statistical analysis, I have taken several advanced courses in statistics for the natural sciences. Depending on the students level or course requirements, I can teach in traditional formats or electronic (R programming language) formats.
