My teaching style is to build a strong conceptual framework for the student. Teaching in this way builds confidence in the student and allows them to teach themselves how to learn. This means that the student will eventually be able to learn entirely on their own and no longer need a tutor.

I have a BS and MS in Biology and a PhD in Biochemistry. I have taught students at many levels but most recently at the High School, College and Graduate School levels. I am strong in Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry. I have also taught Bio-Ethics and have been an English language editor.
