About Jared

I really enjoy the entire teaching process. I love sharing information and seeing that moment of clarity in a student's eyes when they make connections about a lesson. I also like being a student and I have continued taking on new courses and activities to continuously challenge myself and learn techniques from other teachers.

As an educator I have designed and taught numerous microbiology and general biology classes at several universities and the US Army. Most recently I graduated from the American Society of Microbiology (ASM) science teaching fellowship. During the fellowship I focused on four aspects of my teaching in particular:
1. Teaching science to undergraduates
2. Curriculum, course design, and assessment
3. Student centered, active and engaged learning
4. Students as research collaborators

I simply love talking about biology and science. I think we can all benefit from understanding it better. I am always trying to learn more and gain a better understanding of the world around me and I can share that passion with you!

My expertise is biology. I earned a Ph.D. in biology from VA Tech several years ago and I spend my 9-5 hours as a molecular microbiologist.

I excel at communicating and teaching subjects such as microbiology, biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and infectious diseases.

I have written several published manuscripts on these topics as well as three textbook chapters.

I am available for tutoring during the weekday evenings and Saturday. I meet in libraries in the local Salem/Roanoke area.

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.

Brilliant scientist and tutor.

Jared asked for my syllabus ahead of time so he could be prepared for my genetics tutoring session. When we met, he was knowledgeable about my areas of need and able to help me better understand molecular genetics - especially DNA. Thank you, Jared! Definitely time well spent.
