I have taught AP Biology on the high school level for 35 years, and General Biology on the community college level for 15 years. I am therefore well-versed in all topics in Biology and am very familiar with the requirements of AP. My experience includes teaching Biology at all levels including remedial and Honors. I have received various teaching awards including the Presidential Award for Math/Science from the state of Virginia. I have the ability to take complex concepts and present them in a logical, organized and understandable way to students. My great success with scores my students achieve year after year on the AP Biology exam is testimony to this. My passion for Biology is evident in my teaching and tutoring and truly helps the student to become motivated and succeed.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Botany

Botany is a major part of the AP Biology curriculum and General Biology in college. I am knowledgeable in plant structure and function (root/stem/leaves), plant hormones and their action, transpiration and the factors affecting it, movement of water and organic molecules through plants, etc.
I have taken courses in plant taxonomy, plant diseases and parasites and plant physiology. I developed a lab on identification of tree species based on leaf characteristics using a dichotomous key. My classes typically involved a field trip where students got first-hand practice with identification.

Genetics

I have taught AP Biology and General Biology at the community college level, both of which contain a major emphasis on Genetics. I am very familiar with Mendelian genetics, and also the various types of non-Mendelian genetics such as Incomplete Dominance, Co-dominance, Multiple Alleles, Sex-linked, Sex-Influenced, Polygenic inheritance. I have conducted numerous experiments with fruit-flies.
