About Anthony

Hello, my name is Tony, and I'm ready to help. I have a general love for all things biology. That being said I know some areas can often be tricky or even too confusing to understand from one lecture. It's also important to know that in the world after college, you aren't expected to know everything. However, you are expected to ask for help if you need it. What I can do is explain something in a different view that you should be able to understand. Not everyone's minds processes information the same way. With this info we can assume we have to sometimes teach things in another light. I've helped numerous friends and strangers alike for about a year, and I'd love to help you.

I've been through high school all the way to advanced university biology courses. I have an Associates of Arts and Sciences for Biology as well as current enrollment at UW this summer. I'm one class away from my Bachelors so I've been through quite a bit. I've worked in a couple of research settings as well. As a student I've been through Ecology, Genetics, Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Mammalogy, and several other subjects. With these classes I've learned about various mechanisms, theories, concepts, and other important fundamental information. I've also performed various procedures in a lab setting such as PCR, Sanger sequencing reaction, western blots, northern blots, gel electrophoresis, or the more unsettling fecal smear. The most important knowledge I've acquired from these classes was how to learn. The way I've learned to most effectively tutor is to have the student reach their own conclusions, however I'm here to help shape the manner in which you reach them. I'm happy to help with all ages; however I will be most useful to both high school and college students.

My main goal is to make sure that you have a rock solid understanding of the basics. Once we've established that you are comfortable and capable with basic information, we can move towards excellence in advanced material. Like any other science, Biology requires a process of building upon fundamental materials. I've found, for most students, that the majority of issues come from incomplete understanding of past fundamental materials. I'm a friendly and serious person, and I will use a Socratic approach in helping you. Specifically I will always question your answers and explanations, even if they are correct. This may seem like I’m being pedantic at times, but it will aid you in developing a full understanding of the material, rather than just memorizing words on a page.

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've been a biology student for four years and I've come to understand the hardship that students can feel strangled by. Some teachers either don't know how to teach or simply cannot teach a single student. However I've managed to help several students who are willing to learn.

Chemistry

I have taken several high-level chemistry courses throughout college, including General chemistry, Organic chemistry, and Biochemistry.

Genetics

My education consisted of several classes which my first which covered basic Genetics related testing such as PCR, Sanger Sequencing, and others. My next important coursework regarding genetics was covered in both a genetics course and organic evolutionary history. Not only was the main the history covered, but also the molecular, statistical and mathematical concepts that related to genetics. My final contribution was my Seminar (cap stone) covered Contemporary Genetics, which not only covered modern news in genetics, but takes an ethical look into genetics. That being said extensive time was put into exploring new tests and mechanisms discovered within the last couple of years. My main presentation of my capstone focused on the potential use of plants as a new means of production of pharmaceuticals using the CRISPR-Cas9 complex, which is originally of part of the prokaryotic cells immune response to foreign DNA. The main advantage being that the CRISPR-Cas9 shows infinite specificity in genetic engineering.
