Biologist with a passion for communicating science offering tutoring to all levels

Methodology

I am a recent college graduate offering lessons in Biology to all age ranges. I have extensive background in Biology, having conducted research spanning the fields of Ecology, Evolution, Molecular Biology, Genetics, and Computational Biology.

As a tutor I am patient and adaptable, I like to cater to the student's specific background in my lessons. I will often motivate learning by using real life connections and examples that the student is likely to understand.

Background

I am a graduate of Harvey Mudd College with a degree in Mathematical and Computational Biology. I've conducted research in Ecology, Genetics, Evolution, and Computational Biology. My passion lies in communicating science to those who are not scientists. I was a Biology Teaching Assistant and Tutor at my university and have worked with organizations such as the NOAA National Marine Sanctuary system and Jean Michel Cousteau Ocean Futures Society to communicate science to all age ranges.
