Update, September 10: I tutor on Saturdays only. I can accept one more student in the early afternoon, between 1:30 PM and 4:30 PM. I prefer sessions 90 minutes to 2 hours in length. Thanks. ---------- I'm a graduate of Berkeley (B.A., biochemistry) and Stanford (Ph.D., immunology). So, which side should I sit on at the Big Game? I currently work as a Core Faculty member and Research Scientist at a local university. I have been a college-level teaching assistant. I have tutored many st... [more]
I am a professional research biologist, with several peer-reviewed publications and a biotechnology patent to my name. I hold a Bachelors' degree in Biochemistry from U.C. Berkeley, and a PhD in Immunology from Stanford.
I have ten years of practical, hands-on computer programming experience through my work as a scientist. Python is my primary programming language. I have also programmed in Pascal and C. I can teach you the basics of computer programming, up to more complex subjects (object-oriented programming, classes, inheritance, duck typing, name spaces, etc.). I like to teach programming by doing it. We will work at your computer, not from a book.
My Bachelors' degree training and my Ph.D. training each included course work in Genetics. I am the co-author of two peer-reviewed scientific articles which revealed novel information about the genetics of South American monkeys. I have tutored a college student who advertised for help with Biology, but who was actually taking a Genetics course (Biology 22 at West Valley Community College).
