Hi! I love the subjects I teach, and I love helping my students master them.

I have a PhD in Biology from Johns Hopkins, and have done research in biochemistry and microbiology. While in graduate school, I taught undergraduates, and have tutored high school students, undergraduates, and professionals since then.

I think of learning as a journey. A teacher needs to know where the student is starting from and the best path to their destination. And ideally, the teacher knows some interesting sights along the way. With my knowledge of the territory and experience as a guide, I try to get the student to their goal as quickly and enjoyably as possible.
