I am a credentialed teacher certified to teach in both CA and TX (over 8 years of teaching experience). I have taught in the classroom (public schools and college) as well as on a one on one basis for tutorials. I have a Masters in Microbiology and Bachelors in Microbiology and Biochemistry.


Having studied and taught for several years, I have an excellent understanding of concepts in genetics, evolution, ecology, molecular biology, animal and plant biology. I am familiar with the biology curriculum and (AP/SAT/ACT ) exam format.

My job is to help students do their best. I can design my lessons to help a student who is struggling or help a student who is doing well but wants to excel.
