About Tracy

I received my undergraduate degree in Genetic Engineering with two minors in Chemistry and Business Administration. I continued my education at Temple University and received my Ph.D. in Cell Biology. I thoroughly enjoy learning and teaching about Science.

Through my current work as a Post Doctoral Researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, I have had the opportunity to mentor and tutor summer students, lab technicians and medical students. I find it really rewarding and enjoyable, and would like to continue working with students who want to learn, which is what attracted me to WyzAnt.

I would be most helpful to students looking for help in the sciences, including biology, chemistry, microbiology, and well as AP science courses.

As a tutor, some of my strengths include patience and commitment to making learning an enjoyable experience.

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

As a Ph.D. in Cell Biology, I have taken many biology courses. My biology background includes courses in basic biology, cellular biology, cellular signaling, developmental biology, molecular biology, microbiology and some virology. I am very comfortable with the subject of biology.

Chemistry

I received a minor in Chemistry from Cedar Crest College. The course load included general chemistry, organic and inorganic chemistry.

Genetics

I received my undergraduate degree in Genetic Engineering. For my degree, I had classes in Genetics, and Molecular Biology. My undergraduate degree was geared towards genetics.

Microbiology

Two semesters of microbiology were part of my core undergraduate curriculum. Additionally, a good working knowledge of microbiology helps when working in sterile environments in the lab, such as when doing cell work.
