Award-Winning Biology Tutors in Washington, DC
Julia "...My tutoring mantra is all about setting goals and accomplishing them little by little. I am a big proponent of taking things one step at a time, focusing on successes instead of dwelling on frustrations, as I believe this ultimately leads to the highest success rates and student satisfaction. I very much enjoy all aspects of science, research, and academia, and love having the opportunity to teach students and see them develop their own interests and passions in learning..."
Gerard "I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and Biochemistry from Florida State University.

Daniela "...in Neuroscience and a minor in Chemistry. As a neuroscience major, my focus was on cognitive neuroscience and, particularly, in using electroencephalography (EEG) to understand how visual distractors interfere with ongoing brain processes associated with cognitive performance. My current work at the Clinical and Translational Neuroscience Branch and Dynamic Imaging Core of the NIMH involves leveraging multiple brain imaging modalities (e.g., functional MRI (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS)) and the power of Genome Wide Association analysis to investigate single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that might predict brain activation and connectivity patterns found in schizophrenia patients. I believe a commitment to education and to life-long learning is essential for a successful and meaningful existence..."

Steve "...Having taught in classes with several hundred students, I have worked with diverse groups of individuals, each with their own unique ways of learning. I find it most effective to work with students to solidify basic concepts so that they will be better prepared for much more advanced topics. With a good foundation, they will also have fun realizing their potential and want to learn more..."
