Bio

Hello! I have extensive experience tutoring many subjects at the college level: Inorganic/Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Physiology, Microbiology, Parasitology, Psychology, Calculus I & II, Trigonometry, Economics, Writing, and German Language/Literature. I tutored all of these subjects and then some a minimum of 8 hours a week for 3 years while I was in college completing a double-major and pre-med.

Hello! I have extensive experience tutoring many subjects at the college level: Inorganic/Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Physiology, Microbiology, Parasitology, Psychology, Calculus I & II, Trigonometry, Economics, Writing, and German Language/Literature. I tutored all of these subjects and then some a minimum of 8 hours a week for 3 years while I was in college completing a double-major and pre-med.

I graduated from SMU magna cum laude, phi beta kappa, with a B.S. in Biology and a B.A. in German. I also received honors distinction as well as being voted the top student in the foreign language and literature department as chosen by the faculty. Post-graduation I attended Medical School with an Academic Scholarship for 3 years before deciding that it was not a good fit for me as a career. While I transition to another profession, I want to teach as much as I can. Tutoring is always something I've loved. I volunteer to help people get their GED's in my free time, but if I am able to help out with more challenging material, through this website, I think I can provide outsized value due to my education and experience. I have over 7 years of post-high school scientific education. I am proficient in all sectors of science, and have done a considerable amount of research in Molecular Biology (specifically epigenetics).

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. If you need help with something I haven't specifically listed, do ask anyway, as the odds are good I will have tutored students in it before. Whether you just need help on a homework assignment, or want a structured series of lessons on a particular topic, I will be happy to provide a personalized solution for your needs.

And remember: "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence...persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."
-- Calvin Coolidge

I have a B.S. in Biology from Southern Methodist University, graduating with a 3.85. It was a competitive atmosphere as of the freshman Bio Majors, only 5% achieved a Biology degree. During my time there I conducted research in Molecular Biology, and was the only undergraduate from my class entrusted with grading Genetics homework in a 3000 level course for 180 of my peers...a course I had only taken the year before. I tutored for 3 years at the collegiate level as well. I then was fortunate enough to get one of 10 academic scholarships to the Medical School of my choice. Medicine wasn’t for me but I completed the didactic portion of the curriculum nonetheless. I hope I can put my education to use to help others!

Genetics

I worked in a Molecular Genetics Lab taking raw fruit flies and independently executing the necessary steps to arrive at antibodies against the specific sequence of amino acids targeted. I also not only tutored upper level genetics classes, but was the one undergraduate trusted to act as a TA grading the long-form mathematical genetics homework assigned weekly for 180 advanced Biology students (3000-level).
