About Carlene

I love puzzles. Which is why math and science appeals to me. They are puzzles. You have to learn what each of the puzzle pieces look like. The more you learn, the more you expand your knowledge of the pieces, the more of the puzzle gets put together. Seeing a coherent portion is one of life's most exciting challenges. I earned my MS in Biology because of this desire to know. I have covered most aspects of biology, from botany to zoology, neurobiology and genetics and everything in between. In the course of earning my degree in biology, I also had to explore the world of math. I found it to be just as beautiful in it's own way.

I have officially been a math and science tutor for over a year now. Unofficially, I have always tutored people in beauty of these subjects. Everybody in every job I have had has always seen me as the resident expert, the person in the know. I take pride in knowing as much as I can and also in knowing how to explain it to someone else.

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.

Algebra 1

I am a tutor for maths and science at SLCC. I have a MS in Biology.

Algebra 2

I have been a tutor at the college for over a year in the math and sciences Learning Center. I have tutored from basic math up to trigonometry for the most part. I am adept at explaining the subject and showing how the pieces fit together to make a coherent whole.

Botany

While earning my BS, I emphasized the botanical aspects of biology. I took many plant-based courses including Botany, Field Biology, Psychology, Mycology, and Plant Anatomy. I enjoy botany and will always continue to learn more about the amazing world of plants.

Genetics

I found every opportunity to take a genetics related course while earning my MS that I could. I took Molecular Genetics and Phylogenetics with a difficult and wonderful professor. I also taught genetics laboratory. DNA is life. I am certain I can share the wonder that is four nucleotides.
