Profile

I'm a certified teacher with 2 years of experience teaching biology, a Master's degree in Education, and a Bachelor's degree in Conservation Biology. I was third in my high school graduating class. I believe that every student can learn any subject. Not everyone learns in the same way with the same presentation and the same study tools. That can be discouraging, and learning can become intimidating. I'm here to help. I can present the content again, help you take notes, or guide you through different study methods. My specialty is biology, but I can also tutor English vocabulary, preparing for the ACT, pre-algebra, algebra I, some literature, and some chemistry. Personally, I love to learn, but not every subject comes easily. The first step is deciding to do something differently. The second may be to ask for help, and that's where I always had trouble!

Education

M.S. Education, UT Martin (4.0 GPA); B.S. Conservation Biology, Union University (3.9 GPA)

Subjects of Expertise

ACT Math, ACT Reading, ACT English, ACT Science, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Biology, Chemistry, Vocabulary

Protein Synthesis

How do we make the proteins we need to live? You may recall that DNA codes for proteins, that is, the sequence of the DNA nucleotides has the directions to make every protein we must have. In high school biology, you will be given a sequence of DNA bases and a codon chart with the…

Genetics: Non-Mendelian Traits

Genetics is the study of genes from one generation to the next. Gregor Mendel is the Father of Genetics, and his experiments with pea plants provided insight into how traits pass from parents to offspring. We now know that our chromosomes, which are made of DNA, work in pairs. That means that for any gene,…

Genetics: Mendelian Traits

Genetics is the study of how traits appear in different generations. A trait can be any characteristic, as long as it is inherited. Hair color, eye color, and colorblindness are all genetic. Height is affected by genetics. Something like a tattoo is not inheritable and is not a genetic trait. Gregor Mendel, a monk living…

Bias? What bias?

In scientific experiments, scientists must be careful to eliminate bias from their studies. Bias is a preference for a result that may or may not be accurate. It may be intentional or unintentional. It can appear in the design of an experiment, the selection of a sample, the recording of the data, the analysis of…

Genetics: Sex-Linked Traits

In the study of genetics, one mode of non-Mendelian inheritance is sex-linked. This occurs when the gene or genes in question are on the X chromosome (and sometimes on the y chromosome). Remember, we humans have 46 chromosomes existing in pairs. The 23rd pair are sex chromosomes. In general, women have XX, and men have…
