Biology Appointment Tutors

Morgan Dorsey, Biology

Morgan Dorsey

Hi, y'all! My name is Morgan Dorsey, and I'm a senior pursuing a major in psychology with a minor in biology. Throughout my academic journey, biology has always been my favorite subject in school, fueling my curiosity about the intricate workings of life. I am currently on the pre-medicine track, aiming to merge my passion for understanding the mind and body. I am an East Coast baby at heart, originally from Fayetteville, North Carolina. Growing up, I was instilled with a deep sense of connection and the desire to give back. My chosen path is driven by my desire and commitment to helping others and making a positive impact on my community. I'm enthralled by the profound influence that mindset can have on physical health, and I'm eager to explore how our thoughts and behaviors shape our overall well-being. Unraveling the mysteries of the mind and delving into the causes and motivations of our thoughts and behaviors is my passion. In my free time, I like to do photography and draw, capturing life moments that tell stories. Listening to music with my headphones on with a smoothie in my hand, while reading the latest John Grisham mystery, is my true, happy relaxation place. I certainly can't forget to include my fur babies--Vinnie and Bella! I love spending my down time with them, because I just find their presence and energies to be truly magical and comforting. I am super excited about the opportunity to work with y'all, and I'm really looking forward to meeting all of you!

Nick Panyanouvong, Chemistry

Nick Panyanouvong

Hi there! My name is Nick Panyanouvong, and I'm a senior majoring in Bio, minoring in Data Science, and coterming in Epidemiology & Clinical Research. I think chemistry is the awkward middle child of the STEM family - it requires not only solid logical and mathematical reasoning, but memory of waaaaayy too many reactions, and that's what can make it so tricky. But like any child, give it enough time and love and it can turn into something beautiful! Outside of class, I enjoy volunteering with the Cardinal Free Clinics, playing Just Dance, designing board games, and (if you couldn't tell from my corny metaphors) writing rap battles in the style of Epic Rap Battles of History!

Robert Igbokwe, Chemistry

Robert Igbokwe

Hi y'all! My name's Robert, and I'm a Computer Science major and math minor with hopes of attending medical school. But outside of those interests, I really love dancing, writing, and of course chemistry! Learning chemistry can definitely be challenging, but I believe if you have the right mindset and a good support system, it can also be fascinating and dare I say fun!

Zac Nguyen​, Lead Tutor, Chemistry

Zac Nguyen

Hey y’all! I’m a Public Policy junior from Dallas, TX. I know chemistry can be a daunting topic (it was for me), but hopefully together we can gain an appreciation for the beauty of the reactions that make our bodies run!

 Angel Sandoval, Computer Science

Angel Sandoval

Hey! I'm Angel, I'm a senior majoring in Computer Science, and I'm from San Jose, CA. I study software systems because I like thinking about system design, which sometimes means long hours of coding and debugging. BUT. It's super rewarding to know the system inside and out, and even more rewarding to get to teach it to others. I hope you get to appreciate good design as much as I do! When I'm not tutoring or debugging, I listen to dream pop and brazilian jazz, play video game pieces on the piano, and share cat memes on Insta.
