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 an extensive background in biology, with a number of graduate courses in genetics, evolution, human genetics, cancer, and others. Currently, I am a graduate student in bioinformatics.

Genetics

My background in genetics includes two graduate level courses in genetics, as well as extensive reading in the genetics literature and ongoing reading as part of graduate work. In my JHU course below, I achieved the highest grade in the course, among all graduate students enrolled.

I have taken two graduate level courses, Gene Organization and Expression, with a grade of A+ at Johns Hopkins, and Human Molecular Genetics, with a grade of A from George Mason University.

I achieved a 100% score on the WyzAnt certification test. In high school, I achieved a straight A average in geometry, and consistently achieved the highest score in geometry proofs.
