I am a patient teacher who will work with students of all ages to help them understand science. I have been teaching elementary through college science for the past 15 years, specializing in life science since I have a doctorate in molecular biology. In my 15 years of teaching, I have taught the following high school courses: Biology, AP Biology, Honors Anatomy and Physiology, AP Environmental Science, Conceptual Physics, Integrated Science, and Marine Science. I also have taught the following college courses: Cellular Biology for Biology and Biochem majors, and General Biology for Pre-professional majors. I also enjoy helping students prepare for the ACT science exam.
