About Afifa

I graduated in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in biology and a minor in chemistry. I have a strong foundation in the sciences, including general biology & chemistry, cell biology, microbiology, molecular biology, organic chemistry, and biochemistry.

I have experience in lab techniques for all of these subjects. I also have a well-rounded, successful writing background, in both general and scientific research formats, as well as persuasive, problem/solution, and informative essays.
I have been a certified pharmacy technician for several years. I am passionate about the pharmaceutical field and medical-related scientific research. In a pharmaceutical retail setting I have mastered all skills and knowledge that can be acquired hands-on in the work field. I can teach and train for all areas of this job, including testing for certification.
In a laboratory setting, I have succeeded in techniques learned alongside classes I have taken, and spent my last year of my undergrad working as a research assistant for my professor.

I love to teach and am patient with the student, whatever the learning pace may be. I have a can-do attitude and an encouraging personality. I've trained many pharmacy employees to do the more difficult tasks of a technician, and having worked with many personalities, understand the need for patience, and the reward of watching someone succeed.

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.

Botany

I have successfully completed a botany course, including lab and lecture, required of science majors by SHSU. I can assist a student in learning and understanding the following topics:

Introduction to science, botany, and chemistry; macromolecules; plant cells; cell types; cell function; energy; photosynthesis; glycolysis; citric acid (krebs) cycle; genetics; DNA and biotechnology; plant tissue and organs; roots; stems; leaves; flowers; seeds; hormones; tropisms; nutrition; transport; plant ecology; plant ecosystems; taxonomy.

Chemistry

General chemistry I: chemical changes and laws governing them; nomenclature; introduction to thermodynamics; reactions involving oxygen, hydrogen, acids, bases, and salts; ionization; metathesis; the periodic table, and atomic and molecular structure.

General Chemistry II: descriptive chemistry; gas laws; equilibria; kinetics; thermodynamics; electrochemistry; oxidation-reduction reactions.

Organic Chemistry I & II: See description under organic chemistry.

Genetics

I have successfully completed the genetics course, including lecture and lab, required for biology majors at SHSU. Topics covered included:

Mendelian genetics, cytogenetics, gene expression and regulation, molecular basis of genetics, and gene technologies.

I have also successfully completed an enhanced writing course and lab in molecular biology. This was a hands-on course of the structure and function DNA, protein, and other associated molecules. The course emphasized electrophoretic technique and gene-cloning.

In addition to these courses, I have a year of experience working in the lab performing PCR and electrophoresis.

Microbiology

I have successfully completed a general microbiology lecture and lab as well as a medical microbiology course.

I also have a year of experience working in the Microbiology lab.

Organic Chemistry

I have completed both organic chemistry I & II, mastering all topics that make up this area of chemistry. Passing each part was dependent upon not only testing by the professor, but in addition, a standardized final prepared by the American Chemical Society. I can assist a student with the following topics:

Organic Chemistry I includes structure and properties of organic molecules, including alkanes, alkenes, & alkynes; stereochemistry; alkyl halides: nucleophilic substitution & elimination reactions.

Organic Chemistry II includes structure, synthesis, and reactions of alcohols; properties of and reactions involving ethers, epoxides, sulfides, aromatic compounds, ketones, aldehydes, amines, carboxylic acids & derivatives; infrared, mass, UV, and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy; conjugated systems; orbital symmetry.

Zoology

I have successfully completed the zoology lecture and lab required of science majors by SHSU. I have gained a full understanding of the following topics and can assist studends seeking to do the same:

Introduction to evolutionary & ecological principals of biology; emphasis on animal anatomy, behavior, ecology, taxonomy, and lab dissection technique.
