My name is Brian, and I am a Philadelphia native living in Chicago. I have both a B.A. and M.Sc. in biology, as well as a B.A. In German language. I currently work as a microbiologist in the field of genetic toxicology. I have taught Anatomy & Physiology at an accelerated nursing program in downtown Chicago, and at Rutgers University in Camden, NJ for six semesters, where I redesigned three lab courses (Plant Physiology, General Microbiology, and Microbiology and its Clinical Application).

I tutored and taught Algebra as an undergraduate for Rutgers University in Camden, NJ. Several students have found me after their course was over to personally thank me for helping them understand concepts that they were previously unable to grasp, despite teachers' best efforts. I am personable and am able to come up with new and innovative ways to think about Algebra, and math in general.
I tutored and taught German as an undergraduate for Rutgers University in Camden, NJ. I later became an instructor for the German Society of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA for two years. I am personable and am able to come up with new and innovative ways to think about German, and linguistics in general.
I tutored biochemistry as an undergraduate for Rutgers University in Camden, NJ, where I later became an instructor for the biology department as a graduate student for six semesters.
I tutored anatomy as an undergraduate for Rutgers University in Camden, NJ, where I later became an anatomy instructor for the university as a graduate student for three semesters.
I tutored ecology as an undergraduate for Rutgers University in Camden, NJ, where I later became an instructor for the biology department as a graduate student. I also worked for the ecology department of the University of Helsinki in Viikki, Finland for three months; this job lead to a publication of my research in an internationally recognized scientific journal.
I tutored microbiology as an undergraduate for Rutgers University. In my last two semesters of teaching, I redesigned two microbiology courses for the university and ran six sections of General Microbiology.
I tutored Invertebrate Zoology as an undergraduate, and am well-versed in anatomy & physiology, which I currently teach. I have previously volunteered at the Philadelphia Zoo as a zookeeper.
As an undergraduate student, I studied botany in General Biology II as well as plant physiology. I tutored/taught General Biology II lab and worked for Dr. Simeon K., who is the botanist at Rutgers Camden for two years. I worked with medicinal plants and development of actin cytoskeleton leading to potential abnormalities in trichome cell shape.
I took genetics as an undergraduate and earned a B+. I also tutored and taught the genetics portion of general biology. Lastly, I currently work with cell shape and cytoskeleton filament production. Our data comes from the actual sequenced genome of the plant.
I received an A in both Organic Chemistry I and II. I was the only tutor for organic chemistry, and have just finished an advanced organic course called Green Chemistry and Sustainability with a B.
I have taken forensic pharmacology and received a B, as well as an A in chemical toxicology. My current research deals with drug mechanisms, animal models and finding toxicity from that, and computer-aided drug discovery.
