About Stephanie

Looking for help with science or writing? I've been tutoring science subjects, writing, and resume editing for over 8 years. I've tutored at universities in both New York and Nashville, as well as privately and through the National Science Foundation. In the past I have also done advising for freshman science majors, run science workshops for young teens, and worked in ecology and marine biology labs. I graduated from Marist College with a 3.9 GPA in 2012 (Biology major with Chemistry minor). Science is my passion and I have experience with most fields of biology (my main areas of expertise being ecology and genetics).

I currently work from home as a science writer/editor so my schedule is very flexible. I have a lot of experience tutoring online so am willing to work with students if online tutoring is preferred. I have completed tutor training courses for CRLA certification so I know how to properly structure lessons and adapt teaching styles.

Two hours notice is required for cancellations. Otherwise, a cancellation fee of $15 will apply.

I look forward to working with you! Send me a message anytime and I'll get back to you within 24 hours.

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

My degree is in biology and it's been my passion for as long as I can remember! I've tutored biology classes for over eight years and worked for the National Science Foundation. I can generally tutor any biology class--elementary to graduate coursework.

College Counseling

I worked as an academic adviser for freshman science majors and was also a student mentor for two years. Responsibilities included helping students make class schedules, creating degree plans, and finding scholarship/internship opportunities. I also helped students look into graduate programs and pointed them to useful resources on campus (such as tutoring programs, library databases, and relevant clubs).

Ecology

My degree was in biology with an ecology/animal biology concentration. I have worked in two ecology laboratories and participated in ecological censuses. My current focus in graduate school revolves around getting the public involved in ecological research, giving me a unique perspective as a science educator.

Genetics

Genetics was always a major concentration for me as I worked on my biology degree. I took every genetics course I could at both undergraduate and graduate levels. At this point I was also offering walk-in genetics tutoring at a New York university. After finishing college, I continued to take genetics courses online. Later, I covered genetics stories for a science news website. Genetics is my absolute favorite class to tutor!

Zoology

I've always been fascinated by zoology subjects and continuously built my undergraduate schedules around taking zoology courses. I previously worked as an animal educator, giving overviews of basic zoological concepts to kids. One of my hobbies outside of academics is exotic animal care which has given me unique knowledge of many of the Animal Kingdom's strangest creatures!
