Parasitologist with 5 years lab experience and 10 years tutoring experience offering lessons in biology remotely from Bangor, ME

Methodology

I like to approach teaching by using real world examples and problem sets that engage students critical thinking skills to fully understand the interconnecting webs of biology. When tutoring writing, I often will have students conduct a persuasive essay or scientific paper in order to offer constructive criticism on structure and annotations.

Background

I am a parasitologist who has been working in a lab focusing on the biogenetics of aquatic parasites for the past 5 years. I am currently a senior at the University of Maine working towards a degree in Marine Sciences. I have been tutoring students for 10 years in math and biology with a focus on the biogenetics of species. I am also able to tutor students on conducting eloquent, well written scientific papers with editing experience.
