I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Zoology/Pre-Medicine from the University of Montana (1982), a Master of Science degree in Exercise Science from the University of Colorado (1993), and Master of Science degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from The Pennsylvania State University (2003). I am presently completing a Ph.D in Clinical Psychology. I have taught courses in biochemistry, biology, human anatomy and physiology, molecular biology and have tutored college-age students in the sciences, mathematics, and statistics. I have worked with children, teens, and college-aged individuals in my work history and have tutored the aforementioned age groups. I am flexible in scheduling and encompass all forms of learning styles to bring about an improvement in learning and academic performance. I can not guarantee that your child, teenager, or young adult will achieve the same results as others, but the chances are very good that his/her academic performance will increase from present levels. I look forward to working with you.
