Biologist available for science tutoring

I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Nebraska. I worked for a year as a volunteer at the Henry Doorly Zoo in the genetics lab doing DNA extractions and PCRs. The testing was in conjunction with the Madagascar Biodiversity Trust project, identifying related animals for breeding purposes in Madagascar (mostly lemurs), as well as determining paternity of captive animals at the zoo. Hello! My name is Stacie. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Biology, with a minor in Psychology, from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I work as a corporate level Microbiologist for an i [more]

Master's in Biology - Fluent in Spanish - Excellent English

I received the highest overall grade in my genetics class during my undergraduate studies. While completing my Master's degree, I took 6-7 credit hours of genetics based classes. I have also taught genetics at the high school level. I have worked as a tutor at a community college and also tutored out of my home when I lived in Iowa. I have worked as an adjunct biology instructor at a community college. I was also a high school teacher. The subjects I taught were Biotechnology, Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and AP Biology. I am also very good with Spanish. I took five years of Spanish cla [more]

Willing To Help!

L.A.S. refers to non-agricultural genetics; humans, animals, bacteria, and viruses. I have experience with each, due to various classes that I have taken. My coursework includes Human Genetics, Biological Evolution, Analytical Genetics, and Evolutionary Genetics. I was also a Lab Assistant for an on-campus Genetics lab for 3 semesters, where we did experiments on Drosophila Melanogaster mutants to investigate a homolog known as X23, which is linked to leukoencephalopathy in humans. Hello, I'm Shelby! I am a twice graduate of Iowa State University; a Bachelor's of Science in Genetics L.A.S. in [more]

Retired Physician, All Sciences and Math, Career Advice

Genetics has been one of my personal favorite topics. As a physician I had extensive training in med school. In addition, I have kept up with this field and have done three years of microbiology research at NIH. I have maintained familiarity with the literature as it is published. I am a recently retired surgeon that has also been on two medical school admission committees. As an undergraduate I created an ad-hoc major in 'Mathematical Approach to Physiological Problems with emphasis in Chemical engineering, Mathematics, Physics and Physiology. During this degree I became very familiar with [more]

Chemistry Tutor with Professional Scientific Experience

I completed a course focused on Genetics as part of my coursework in my Bachelor's degree. The Genetics course included studies on Chromosome & Cellular Reproduction, Basic Principles of Sex-Linked Characteristics, Eukaryotic Gene Mapping: Linkage & Recombination, Chromosomal Variation in Bacteria & Viruses, Chromosomal Structure & Chemical Nature of Genes, and DNA Replication, Transcription, & Translation. This course required both book work and lab work, and working knowledge of biochemistry and organic chemistry to understand what drives cellular processes forward. [more]

Experienced college-level biology teacher.

I've taken graduate level genetics courses and worked in a lab that used yeast to do very cool genetic experiments in the course of their studies on the genes involved in meiosis. I have a PhD in biology from the University of Iowa and Bachelor's degree in Microbiology from the University of South Florida. Biology-related topics are where I would be most useful as a tutor, but I also have experience with upper-level math, chemistry, and physics. I have taught discussion sections of Cell Biology and lab sections of Major's Biology, Animal Behavior, and Evolution. I have also worked behind the s [more]

Passionate and Experienced Biology Tutor

Genetics is one of the main themes of biology. A full year of genetic courses was required for my undergraduate degree and was also required for my graduate degree. I have experience in Mendelian Inheritance, molecular genetics, transcriptional regulation, transgenics, biotechology, and epigenetics. Furthermore, I use transgenic mouse models in my own research to ask questions about alterations to neurodevelopment and how those changes may be associated with psychiatric illness later in life.
