About Sadie

I have a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics, with an extensive background in the biological sciences. My love of genetics and an excitement about how much is yet to be discovered originally led me to pursue a career in research. However, my experience in graduate school taught me that my true passion is sharing scientific knowledge with others, which has led me to pursue a career focused on teaching and science communication. I now teach at several local colleges.

As a graduate research assistant at Penn State College of Medicine, I have gained valuable experience teaching and training interns that come through our lab. In the past, I have been sought out by fellow students to provide one-on-one tutoring because of my ability to identify gaps in knowledge and to convey challenging information in an approachable manner. As the only native English speaker in a lab comprised of Chinese, Indian, and Serbian colleagues, I have learned to overcome language and cultural barriers in an effort to communicate effectively in a diverse environment. My recent science writing experience has given me additional experience in the communication of scientific information to different audiences.

My course work has covered a wide range of topics in various areas of biology, with a particular emphasis in the areas of Genetics, Cellular and Molecular Biology, and Biochemistry. I also have extensive training in the field of Psychology and have taken higher level math courses, including Statistics and Calculus I and II. My research experience has provided me with the opportunity to draw connections between academics and laboratory and clinical applications. In this role, I have been responsible for clearly communicating difficult concepts to students of all levels.

In my studies, I have found that an emphasis on critical thinking provides a huge advantage to students in the sciences, and I am committed to a tutoring approach that encourages students to integrate classroom material with real-world applications.

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.

Excellent and relatable tutor

Sadie is tutoring my college aged daughter on Microbiology and Anatomy. They had a great first session! Sadie has already helped my daughter learn strategies for memorizing material and broken down concepts into an understandable format.
