Ph.D. in Molecular Plant Biology can tutor you in biotech, biology, and botany!

Methodology

I am quite flexible, I like to teach according to the interest of the student and their needs. Whether it is just prepping for an exam or trying to dive deeper into a subject for an assignment or just out of personal interest. I keep things quite concise and to the point and I love creating interactive lessons! In the past as a biotech TA, I created Jeopardy games which were quite popular and helpful for memorizing key concepts.

Background

I have a BSc. in Biology, an MSc. in Biotechnology, and Ph.D. in Plant Science. All of my studies have been related to plants and food crops, from peppers and canola to tobacco and cannabis. I have industry experience in leading plant genomics R&D departments advancing the knowledge of new crops as well as teaching experience as a TA both for 3rd-year university students to 1st-year level biotech classes for 7-10 grade students at the Center for Talented Youth from Johns Hopkins University.
