"My name is Zaide Ibic. I graduated from University of Connecticut with a degree in Biology. I am currently enrolled as a Masters student in Professional Sciences focusing on Applied Genomics. I worked as a high school biology teacher for 2 years where I created lesson plans, designed activities and held during and after-school tutoring sessions. I loved being a teacher, and being with my students but I decided to go back to school to obtain a more hands-on experience in science. I am currently working in a laboratory researching the role of p53-binding protein and its impact in cancer. My goal in life is to find ways in which I am able to improve the quality of life of individuals by helping discover new products and contributing to the scientific understanding of life.

The reason why I want to tutor is because I believe sharing knowledge is very rewarding, and I truly miss teaching. Throughout my educational career I have interacted with many teachers, professors, and assistants - some I don’t hold close to my memories, while others I still admire and remember. What makes me remember some and not others isn’t that they made the classwork or the exams easy, but that they understood the students’ needs and constructed their curriculum and methods to meet the requirements of both the students, the administration, and themselves. I have walked into many first days of school thinking I would not be enjoying the material and walking out wanting to learn more. I think the best educator is one that shows passion in what they are teaching, and that is able to transfer this passion to the students. I believe these experiences will be beneficial for students I tutor.
