About Ishmail

Hello, I'm Ishmail, a UPenn alum from the School of Medicine with a Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology. I specialize in tutoring high school and college students in science and math. I have a passion for teaching, adjust to different learning styles, and assure that my students become confident and competent in their respective subjects. I have taught science classes at UPenn and Cornell, and have also taught and tutored high school and middle school students. I was a teaching assistant for two molecular biology courses at UPENN (Bio 101 and BIO 221). I am currently an Adjunct Professor at Rutgers University and Lincoln University in the departments of biology, as well as a postdoctoral neuroscience researcher at UPenn.

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.from the University of Pennsylvania in Cell and Molecular Biology with a concentration in Genetics and Gene Regulation. I have taken courses at UPenn in Genetic Principles, and I received an NIH grant for genetics research. I also served as a teaching assistant and tutor for two molecular genetics courses for undergrads at UPenn. Shortly after receiving my Ph.D. in May of 2012, I was awarded the Tom Kadesch Prize in Genetic Research.
