"Hello,

I'm Spenser, and I'm grateful for your visit to my profile and for the prospects of working together to improve your science and math learning experience!

A bit about myself: I graduated in 2014, magna cum laude with Distinction in Research, from Cornell University with a degree in Nutritional Biochemistry (on a pre-med track). I took a "gap year" between my undergraduate studies and medical school to further pursue my research interests in public health nutrition, nutrigenomics (the study of how diet influences the expression of genetic information), and gastrointestinal physiology. I have published several seminal papers in peer-reviewed biomedical science journals, and am currently leading a multi-site pre-clinical study that aims to elucidate how the collective microbial community in our gut (the microbiome) influences our ability to utilize nutrients from our diet. I'm now an MD/PhD student at the University of Arizona College of Medicine.

Aside from my current position, I am passionate about learning, and find that working one-on-one with other students is a mutually enriching and rewarding experience. I have had exposure to many different types of learning methods, and I bring several years of direct tutoring experience with students of all ages in various science (i.e., general/ organic chemistry, physics, biology, anatomy & physiology) and math (i.e., pre-algebra through calculus) disciplines, as well as in the applied sciences and technical/ biomedical research writing. I find that successful mastery of subject content involves the following: 1) working with the student in a relaxed and familiar environment, 2) fostering a student-tutor "match" based on mutual respect and great communication, 3) understanding and addressing the root cause of potential road blocks to learning, 4) tailoring a study plan to reflect the unique needs of the student, and 5) consistent, challenging (yet not overwhelming) reinforcement of subject material.

As a life-long learner, I like to show my students the oft" less...
