West Virginia State University (Biology)
West Virginia State University (Master's)
During my undergraduate career I tutored for West Virginia State University. I tutored math and science but biology and chemistry are my strong points. I also did physics research that involved Mars and biology research as a McNair scholar.
I am currently in between semesters at WVSU's Biotechnology Master's degree program (which is the only reason I have time to tutor). I have three semesters experience teaching basic biology (for non-majors), biology for majors, and biological diversity (a survey of life on Earth). I plan to finish my thesis work this Spring and graduate in May. I would love to get a PhD and spend the rest of my life teaching and doing research but time will tell.
Before I began my academic career I was in the Marines. As a Marine I took courses on how to teach junior Marines and I have plenty of experience doing just that.
The subjects that I have the most experience in tutoring/teaching are basic biology and general chemistry. However, in my own studies I also excelled in ecology, genetics, cell biology, and organic chemistry. I am not weak in math but it isn't my best subject. This fact has actually helped me in many tutoring situations because I am very good at making complicated subjects simple.
One of my favorite things is to help people "get it". I'd love to be able to help you! During my undergraduate career I tutored for West Virginia State University.

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.
-All "A"s in Biology, Biological Diversity, Ecology, and Genetics. "B" in Cell Biology.
-Years of tutoring experience and a little over one year teaching experience, both at the collegiate level.
I tutored the subject at my university and I received an A when I took it during my undergraduate career. More importantly, my thesis work is based on crop genetics. For more information I can provide my resume/profile or feel free to contact me.
I tutored the subject at my university and got an un-curved "A" in the subject (organic 1), the highest grade in the class. Our university is actually known to be hard on the subject. When a student cannot pass Organic at WVSU they often take it at nearby University of Charleston.
All that being said, I did not do as good in Organic 2 as I did the first one. My weak point was spectroscopy (NMR, Mass Spec). I ended up with a non-curved "C" which was the second highest grade in the class.
