Tutoring appeals to me because it is a way that I can have a visible positive impact on the lives of others. I've taught thousands of undergraduates but have only every been able to work one-on-one with a very small set of them.

As a graduate student, I expanded my knowledge into marine ecosystems, especially coastal and estuarine ecosystems. I taught biology to undergraduates during my entire graduate career, both biology majors and non-majors. From introductory biology, to anatomy & physiology, through to environmental biology and microbiology, I can teach them all.

My PhD required me to propose novel scientific questions, design/execute experiments to test those questions, and to analyze the resul" less...
