About Louise

I am a recently retired pediatrician tutoring in basic and clinical sciences and math. I struggled with some subjects in elementary and junior high school and am grateful to a tutor who was patient, fun to work with, and extremely supportive. Now I want to pay that forward.

I am skilled at presenting basic material from a number of angles, and can bring my basic research and clinical experiences to show why science and math matter.

I have worked with young people from elementary grades through college and want to help students gain confidence as they realize that they have the necessary skills to think critically and figure out problems on their own. I am positive and flexible.

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.

Genetics

I have a Ph.D. in Experimental Pathology, as that was the Dept under which my Mentor worked. My Ph.D. work involved working with transcriptional regulation of the myc gene. In my clinical practice as a pediatric oncologist, I'm up-to-date and conversant with current genetic research and have the background in genetics classes in college and graduate school to help students and more junior practitioners.

Organic Chemistry

I have a B.A. in Biochemistry which required 2 semesters of organic chemistry plus lab courses. I have an M.D., which requires use of organic chemistry knowledge on a daily basis.
