About this tutor

Hi my name is Harry! Currently, I’m a Ph.D. student studying the genetics and genomics of corn flowers. In college, I tutored general biology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry one-on-one. I’ve taught general biology lab and advanced biochemistry lab sections at the collegiate level. I am available to provide career counseling for those interested in pursuing graduate school. It’s a tough decision to make and since I’m living it right now, I can provide some insights to aid in your career decisions. I’m looking forward to learning about life with you!

I enjoy discovering new things about the world around me and applying that knowledge to help feed the world.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I’ll start off with understanding your learning style and what subject matter you are interested in. Then we can start small with some material. Often, I find clients are behind in classes, so starting small and working towards attainable goals is what I strive for. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a bachelor of science in biology and many college semesters of tutoring and teaching experience. I am familiar with and have used most molecular biology techniques such as CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing, PCR, Cloning, and Immunolocalizations. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$25/half hour session

$40/hour session

How did you get started teaching?

I’ve always enjoyed teaching one-on-one and lab classes. Now, I’m looking to expand my network while in grad school. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I’ve worked with many levels of learners: elementary, high school, and college. I curently teach undergraduate lab sections in genetics and have a science series at a local elementary school. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

In July 2018, I was able to attend the American Society of Plant Biology conference in Montreal, CA. Attending conferences is one of my favorite things about grad school. Learning new biology as it happens is exciting! 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find your biological niche by reading widely. I wanted to become a medical doctor until I discovered purple corn. Read primary literature. Textbooks can only get you so far. Journal articles from science and nature will keep you most up to date with science.
