About Vasilios

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!

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

-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.

Genetics

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.

Organic Chemistry

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.
