I prefer to first take my time to help students understand important concepts. It needs to be followed by practice questions where the students can seek help from instructor. Finally, I think it is very important to test students with questions of average difficulty level.
I have completed Bachelor of Science, Biochemistry (Co-op) with specializing in Biotechnology at University of Guelph, ON in Fall 2020. I have worked as Laboratory Assistant - Analytical (Co-op) at Vive Crop Protection in Fall 2018. I have worked for a year at National Research Council Canada as Co-op student. While being a full time student I have volunteered as a Peer Helper at University of Guelph with a dynamic team of 20+ people to offer service to students.
I would prefer if students would contact me at least one day in advance with exactly what they need help with so that I can look into it. I am still very new to tutoring students so I am currently willing to tutor mid-level students (no older than first-year undergrads) at very low rate.

· Received entrance scholarship worth $ 8,500 for academic excellence
National Research Council Canada, Saskatoon, SK (Jan 2020 – Aug 2020)
· Worked as a part of the Cereal Improvement Technologies team to study root system architecture with focus on rhizobial infection of leguminous plant root
· Germinated Pisum lativum seeds and inoculated seedling with rhizobium. Rhizoboxes were prepared to study the development of plants and to observe nodulation
· Performed DNA extraction and spectrophotometry analysis of samples of plant tissue
· Analyzed large number of synthetic roots images with WinRhizo and Root Image Analysis-J software to obtain root traits. Traits were then compared with ground-truth data and each software was evaluated for its accuracy by creating graphs on Excel and calculating mean relative error
National Research Council Canada, Saskatoon, SK (May 2019 – Aug 2019)
· Worked in the molecular biology lab to conduct independent research project and assist co-workers with their projects
· Analyzed gene expression by using RNA extraction, reverse transcription and qPCR as part of research project
