EducationPhD in molecular and cell biology, lots of practical experience in biology.
ExperienceI taught large undergraduate classes and supervised graduate students for 6 years at a major US university. I'm now working as a biology researcher at UW-Madison.
I like to teach, and would like to keep my skills up to date by working with individual students or in small groups (if you have a friend or classmate you would like to bring along and split costs with, that's fine by me). I live at a convenient location near the university of madison, but I'm happy to meet nearby (quiet cafes for example), or at my lab on campus. I'm also happy to read and suggest improvements to writing assignments.
Over the last few years I've helped many students struggling with biology to better understand their coursework, and in the process I have developed a lot of patience! If you need serious help, I'm your man.
HobbiesAstronomy, astrophotography, and other nerdy things.

He helped me for 4 hours preparing for an exam in Zoology 466: Genetics. He has taught college level genetics before, and it showed. While walking me thru a practice exam he recognized a lot of the topics and was able to break the quesitons down into managable chuncks. He was patient in explaining the details of the question I didn't understand. I really think I wouldn't have gotten the grade on got on the exam without his help. I would definitely recommend him. The only qualm I had was that he is expensive which is why I gave him 4 stars.
It was great working with Mr. Colin and whoever has a chance to get Mr. Colin as a tutor is a lucky person! I honestly enjoyed working with him. I am just glad I e-mailed him when I did. He made my course so easy and said to take my time but to be patient. It was like he believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself and that should be what all tutors or teachers should be in order to help students who are struggling. When it came to contacting him it was very simple. He always reply to my e-mails in timely fashion and called when he said he will call. It was also easy setting time to meet with him. He made tutoring fun for me! He was very understanding and made me think when I couldn’t think anymore. He is very patient and so calm. I felt like I have known him for years and made me feel comfortable. The tutoring he has provided me helped me achieve the goal I was going for. Thank you so much Mr. Colin and the help you have provided me, I really appreciated. I hope it is okay to save your contact information as I may need it again for future courses. You were great and I wished all the tutors or teachers were as patient as you were and as open minded as you were. Thank you again Sir and have a great day. Fathiya
