About Selena

I recently completed my PhD in Marine Biology from the University of Auckland in New Zealand and have just traveled back to the states to stay! I love teaching and I have had the opportunity to teach some undergraduate courses over the past several years including animal biology, biochemistry for health science majors (including pre-med), ecology, physiology, plant biology and marine biology. I have a strong statistical background and can offer help with basic statistics, experimental design and SPSS.

My favorite thing about teaching is the excitement that happens when I have steered my students towards the correct answer or helped them understand a complicated concept. I like to offer several ways of looking at a subject to try to incorporate all types of learning. There are many ways to examine a topic and sometimes it's just a matter of seeing it under a different light....like focusing a microscope or clearing a scuba mask....it all becomes clear.

I love statistics! The concepts and philosophy behind determining probabilities of scenarios happening in the natural world. Interpreting and understanding the results from statistical analyses is key in applying what we learn from science to life. I strive to help my students grasp the knowledge necessary to excel in statistics.

Biology is life! It's exciting and mysterious, and it all boils down to sex and money. Although it may seem hard to understand sometimes, it is all related and can be learned by simply breaking it down and then putting it back together. I help my students do that. Once they can relate to the concepts and see how they weave together with each other, understanding Life Sciences becomes much easier and even fun!

Guys, let me know if you need any help with anything. Don't wait until it's too late. I would love to help you achieve your goals. We may even find out you actually like the subject you need help with!

I look forward to hearing from you soon!!

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

I have taught a variety of labs and field courses in Biology including: Plants, Microbes & Society , Comparative Animal Biology, Essential Biology: from genomes to organisms, Cellular Processes & Development: biology for biomedical science, and Foundations of Biochemistry. Through my teaching experience, I have developed instructional material to help students understand hard concepts

Biostatistics

I have taken undergraduate and graduate courses in biostatistics and completed them with high marks. Through my Master's and Doctoral work, I have developed elegant experimental designs, implemented several different types of statistical analyses and applied ecological models to test and interpret my results. I have used SPSS, SAS, Excel, Delta Graph, Sigma Plot, R, R Studio, R packages, FRUITS and Primer extensively.

Ecology

I have taught an ecology field course several times over the past 6 years. I have taken many courses in Ecology and my Master's thesis was in subtidal ecology and was based on ecological concepts and principles.
