Amber has been a Buff Tutor since Fall 2012. She began her formal tutoring career in 2008, assisting students struggling in Pre-AP physics at the request of a professor until she graduated high school in 2010. Her flexible teaching style allowed her students to achieve great success: even students with consistent Fs improved dramatically to earn As and high Bs once tutoring began. In college, Amber continued to tutor informally with only positive feedback from pupils, and strengthened her teaching skills by taking courses in STEM education in which she taught science to students at the elementary level before joining the BuffTutor program. Amber graduated from CU with a bachelor's degree in astrophysics in December 2013; she continues to work as a research assistant and grader for CU's Astrophysics and Planetary Sciences department in addition to being a Buff Tutor for many astronomy courses.

Jameson is a Senior Math major at CU. His experience includes being a Learning Assistant in Calculus I in the Fall of 2012 and over a year tutoring with the Buff Tutor program, as well as helping countless other students in Math and Physics. Although his major doesn't show any reason to take Physics or Chemistry, he recently took Organic Chemistry and has taken 3 courses beyond entry level Physics. He understands that sometimes the best person to teach the material is a student who just went through the course. Still an undergrad, Jameson recognizes that this is a great opportunity to help his fellow students in a way that graduate students and professors wouldn't be able to.

Jessica finished her undergraduate work at CU Boulder and graduated in December 2005 with a BA in MCDB and a BA in Biochemistry.  During her time as an undergraduate, she tutored first and second year students in General Chemistry 1 and 2.  She always received the highest ratings during tutor evaluations from her students.  Additionally, as an undergraduate, she was a TA for a course called Genetics for Non-Majors.  The purpose of this class and Jessica's role in this class was to make the complex concepts of genetics accessible to students with all educational backgrounds and levels of scientific aptitude.

After graduating from UC Boulder, Jessica started her Graduate studies at University of Colorado Medical School in Denver in which she studied Human Medical Genetics; more specifically Parkinson’s disease. In the Fall of 2013, Jessica received her PhD in Human Medical Genetics and Genomics. During her graduate work, Jessica was involved in the one-on-one mentoring of more than a dozen first year graduate students in which she was responsible for helping the first year students through the rigorous course work, advising students on scientific experiments and research projects and aiding students to understand the “big picture” concepts of science rather than encouraging memorization of details and equations.

Jessica has recently come back to the University of Colorado Boulder to work as a Post doctorate fellow where she currently does basic research on the ER stress response in human cells.
