Tutor Information


Welcome to my tutoring profile! I'm a university professor and an enthusiastic private tutor, deeply passionate about science and education. My academic path has taken me across continents, contributing significantly to my professional growth. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences from the Universidade Federal do Ceara, a Ph.D. in Toxicology and Cancer Biology from the University of Kentucky, and have completed post-doctoral training at the Markey Cancer Center. My educational background forms a solid foundation for my expertise in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Pharmacology, Genetics, and MCAT Biochemistry preparation. I bring a wealth of teaching experience from various educational settings and student groups. As a university professor, I teach medical microbiology students in scientific communication, biochemistry, and molecular biology. This classroom experience has equipped me with effective group management and engagement skills. Additionally, I have extensive one-on-one tutoring experience. Significantly, I have a strong track record in preparing students for the MCAT, particularly in the Biochemistry section. I understand the challenges and nuances of this demanding exam and have developed strategies to help pre-med students not only understand the material but also apply it effectively under exam conditions. My tutoring approach is tailored to each student's learning style and academic needs. I strive to create an engaging and interactive environment, encouraging questions and discussions that deepen understanding. Whether it's helping a high school student ace their AP exams, guiding a college student through biochemical concepts, or preparing a pre-med student for the MCAT, my goal is to make learning both enjoyable and fruitful. I invite you to start this educational journey with me. My dedication is to provide a supportive, enriching, and customized learning experience that aligns with your specific goals and aspirations.
