I graduated from Shorter College in 2009 with a BS in Chemistry/Biochemistry and a BA in Spanish Literature. I spent four years working during college as a Surgical Assistant for an Oral Surgeon in Rome. In 2012 I completed a Master of Science in Molecular Medicine and Translational Science at Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, NC. My primary background is heavily concentrated on biomedical research. If you are looking for a tutor, you want someone who can allow you to understand the ... [more]
One of my Bachelor degrees is in Chemistry/Biochemistry. I have taken several classes like quantitive analysis and instrumental analysis and have applicable experience in a lab with a very wide variety of techniques and instruments. My MSc degree is in Molecular Medicine is more focused on medicinal chemistry and biochemistry. I have extensive experience working with biomaterials and proteins- as well as stem cells and mammalian cells.
I have extensive math coursework on both undergraduate and graduate levels. I also specialize in Non-Euclidian Geometry- one of the highest forms of mathematics.
For my Bachelor degree I completed two semesters of calculus physics for scientists and engineers. I further completed two semesters of Physical Chemistry and two classes in Biophysics. Some of my research involves aspects of biomedical engineering and requires the application of physics to advanced research models. I have also taken extensive coursework in math, including coursework through Calculus IV, Multivariable Calculus, and Advanced Differentials.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Literature. I have been completely fluent since 2009 and have translated in a professional capacity in part of my career. I often translate on a volunteer basis for churches and nonprofit organizations that work with the latino community.
I have a BS in Biochemistry/Biophysics and a Masters degree in Molecular Medicine/Translational Science from Wake Forest. I use these area daily in biomedical research.
I have extensive knowledge of anatomy from both my Bachelor degree and Masters degree. I work in biomedical research where knowledge of human anatomy is crucial for the work I do. I was also previously a surgical nurse, specifically dealing with oral surgery and maxillofacial trauma.
I have had formal classes in biostatistics in college and in graduate school, as well as general math classes in statistics. In my research in graduate school I used biostatistics on a semi-daily basis. Experimental outcomes are often measured by calculating a p value based on the data. I also have a reasonable amount of experience using the same statistical analysis techniques in industry while conducting research for medical device companies. I have a formal education in this subject area and I possess applicable experience applying and using its techniques.
Genetics is essential for translational science. I have taken graduate-level Genetics courses. In practical terms, I use various forms of genetic analysis ranging for karyotyping, RFLP Analysis, and Sanger Sequencing. I am proficient at designing viral vectors to insert genes into cells via plasmids, as well as using siRNA to silence expression of genes. I frequently use Quantitive Genetic techniques such as qRT-PCR to analyze gene expression.
As an undergraduate, I was required to take two semesters of Organic Chemistry for my BS degree in Chemistry. I later completed an independent study as an undergrad that focused on organic synthesis. My relevant experience with Organic Chemistry is how it is applied in other areas like Biochemistry and Biophysics. To understand the molecules involved in photosynthesis, glycolysis, oxidative metabolism, etc it is important to fully understand the stereochemistry of carbon and how carbon molecules behave in chemical reactions. I completed two semesters of Biochemistry as a undergrad. In graduate school, I completed several advanced courses in Biochemistry and Biophysics. In my lab research, I use principles from Organic Chemistry daily. Because I work with cells and tissues, almost all of the reagents I use are organic. I have 4 years of experience in biomedical research from graduate school and working in industry for medical device companies. Using concepts form Organic Chemistry daily make it easy for me to teach this subject to students with different backgrounds.
