About Megan

I am currently a Research Technician at the University of Pennsylvania and have been for nine years. I went to Temple University and majored in Biochemistry and minored in mathematics. I completed my Master's in Biotechnology at the University of Pennsylvania in December 2014. During the last two years of college, I tutored other undergraduates at Temple University and have continued tutoring through Wyzant since 2008. I have always enjoyed studying science and I continue to learn more everyday with my current job and through teaching bright young students! I hope that anyone I tutor will learn to love learning as much as I do, and I seek to help people reach their academic goals with discipline and hard work. I believe a prepared student has no reason to fear projects, tests, or papers! I am most experienced at tutoring chemistry, biology and biochemistry as well as algebra and basic math. I have TA'd BIOL204 and BIOL203 (Biochemistry) at the University of Pennsylvania and have taken several graduate level biology classes myself here as well. I am currently an instructor of microbiology at LaSalle University and of BIOL203 at the University of Pennsylvania.

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.

Chemistry

I have ten years of general chemistry and biology tutoring experience. I currently instruct both microbiology and biochemistry courses at universities in the area.

Genetics

I have taken undergraduate Genetics classes, as well as graduate level Genomics classes at the University of Pennsylvania (which require an understanding of Genetics as a prerequisite).

Truly great

I was enrolled in a very difficult Biochemistry course for which I desperately sought a tutor who would be reliable, knowledgeable, and patient. Megan was all of these and more. She was always able to accommodate my schedule, was always on time, and often stayed as long as I needed to get either my homework done or review a problem set. Megan had great expertise in Biochemistry, having both an und
