About Spencer


Bio

I am a graduate student working on my Ph.D. in Biochemistry. Tutoring is an excellent way for me to build my teaching skills and use my expertise to help you succeed! I love helping students understand and (hopefully) develop a passion for science and research.

I am a graduate student working on my Ph.D. in Biochemistry. Tutoring is an excellent way for me to build my teaching skills and use my expertise to help you succeed! I love helping students understand and (hopefully) develop a passion for science and research.

I have an undergraduate degree in biochemistry (B.S.) and am training in biochemistry in a prestigious Ph.D. program. I have five years of research experience and have worked on antibiotic resistance, cancer, and neurology research. My training, both in the lab and in class, has provided me with an excellent knowledge of biochemistry and solid foundations in general chemistry, biology, microbiology, and inorganic chemistry.

In addition to my chemistry training, I double majored in German. As a German major, I completed several independent research projects, studied abroad, received the senior language award, and graduated with departmental honors.

While I have no formal tutoring experience, I have plenty of mentoring and teaching experience. As a member of 4-H, I honed my presentation and teaching skills. During my undergraduate training, I applied them to mentoring and teaching fellow undergraduates and new graduate students. As a general practice, I request students send me topics, questions, and relevant class materials for me to review and prepare a good lesson before our scheduled meeting time. For regular students, especially those in undergraduate or advanced high school courses, I would be happy to "take" the course with you to provide the best teaching possible. For drop-in students or emergencies in which I do not know the answer, I will gladly assist you in researching - a skill that graduate school has made me very good at!

Whether you are struggling with one concept or a whole class, I am here to help! Tutoring you will allow us both to learn and hopefully show you how cool and important science is from a real-world perspective.

Biology

I have multiple years of research and teaching experience in the field of biochemistry. I have worked in multiple areas of research, including neurons, drug resistance, and cancer. I have experience with many biochemical techniques as well as bioinformatics. I am most comfortable with protein chemistry and structural biology, but I am competent in all areas of biological chemistry!

Chemistry

I have a B.S. in biological chemistry and am working on my PhD in the same field. Many of the concepts of AP Chemistry, High School Chemistry, and College Gen. Chm. are foundational to my everyday work and advanced learning. I like to use my real-world experience to foster understanding of concepts rather than memorization.

ACT Science

I am a professional scientist, and actually do what the ACT exam is asking you about! What sets me apart from other ACT tutors is that I will not focus strictly on test strategies, but rather an understanding of the material. The hardest section on the ACT science exam is data interpretation, a skill I use every day and one I will teach you or your child! I also have developed a good understanding of the interworking of the ACT science exam, which coupled with understanding should allow you to ace the test!

I am a PhD student with multiple years of research and teaching experience. Many of the concepts covered in physical science are the foundations of the most basic theories I use every day. Thus, I am uniquely qualified to teach but also help you understand that material with real-world perspective.

Chemistry

Spencer helped my hs daughter with chemistry. She was behind due to missed classes and Spencer was able to help her catch up and understand the work. My daughter was so happy to find someone so patient with her. At the end of one session she said this is so easy now. It felt so hard before. She was able to complete her assignment with confidence

Bioinformatics

Spencer is a great tutor. He has a lot of information about bioinformatic tools, and he helped me with two assignment. After he illustrated BLAST, I could solve my task. Thank you, Spencer.

Very Helpful, Knowledgeable, and Tutor

Spencer is very flexible, patient, and able to explain complex things much clear. My son had difficulty understanding concepts of a school science project and Spencer was able to explain important concepts and assists shin with formulating ideas. Would recommend to any student to work with Spencer!
