I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is Dr. S, but, all my students have called me Doc. I began teaching in 2003 at Everglades High School. I began as the Biology teacher for Honors Biology and the general biology course. The following year I started my teaching certification and it was at this time that I started the Anatomy & Physiology Courses as well as the AP Biology Course.

That first year I had about 15 students out of 25 students get college credit for the AP Biology Course. In 2005-2006 I began writing for AP Biology accreditation and began the Forensics Program at Everglades High School.

After receiving my certification in 2005, the AP Biology, Anatomy & Physiology and Forensics programs took off and I was loving it.

I took a hiatus in 2009 as my family moved to Key West and during that time I taught Anatomy & Physiology at Key West Community College for the Spring Semester. Eventually I moved back to the mainland and began teaching at Seacrest Country Day School. Since being here we began our AP Biology program that I applied for accreditation and received it within three months. I have expanded the Forensics and Anatomy Departments here at Seacrest.

My goals in class are to incorporate learning and fun. I have found that if there is no levity many of my students get frustrated. I have decided to tutor because frankly, times are tough and instead of trying to get another job I want to supplement my income through tutoring. I love teaching and I invite anyone out there to come and see me teach.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anatomy

The purpose of Human Anatomy & Physiology is to provide exploratory experiences, laboratory and real-life applications in the better understanding of the human body. The topics to be covered will include basic anatomy and physiology; a review of basic chemistry; cells and tissue: skin and body membranes; the body systems and hierarchy: integumentary, skeletal and muscular systems. The student shall be able to then analyze the body in terms of each body part separately and as part of the whole body.

Biology


“The Advanced Placement Program is a collaborative effort between motivated students, dedicated teachers, and committed high schools, colleges, and universities. Since its inception in 1955, the Program has allowed millions of students to take college-level courses and exams and to earn college credit or placement while still in high school.” The College Board Advanced Placement Program, Course Description

Course Description:
The AP Biology course is designed to be equivalent of a two-semester college introductory course usually taken by biology majors during first year. After students show themselves to be qualified on the AP Examination, some students, as college freshman, are permitted to undertake upper-level courses for which biology is a prerequisite. Other students may have fulfilled a basic requirement for a laboratory-science course and will be able to undertake other course to pursue their majors.
The two main goals of AP Biology are to help students develop a conceptual framework for modern biology and to help students gain an appreciation of science as a process. The primary emphasis of the course taught at Seacrest Country Day School is on developing an understanding of concepts rather than on memorizing terms and technical details. Essential to this conceptual understanding is the following:
1. A grasp of science as a process rather than an accumulation of facts
2. Personal experience in scientific inquiry
3. Recognition of unifying themes that integrate the major topics of biology
4. Application of biological knowledge and the critical thinking to environmental and social concerns

Instructional Content:
My AP Biology class is open to juniors and seniors at Seacrest Country Day School. Our teaching schedule is a modified block that allows for 70 minutes 4 days a week and the AP courses are scheduled near our flex block to allow for 110 minutes twice a week for labs.
The prerequisite for my course is to have successfully completed biology and chemistry prior to enrolling in AP Biology. I assign a summer reading assignment that reviews the basic principles of biology and chemistry.
Most of the time will be devoted to lectures. I have put together Power Pont Presentations and will be supplying outline lecture notes. I urge you to take advantage of the outline lecture and supplement notes from the reading assignments and classroom lectures.
After each unit I will give an examination that will follow the AP Format of a Multiple Choice Exam and essays. There will be 3-4 essays and this part of the exam will be given the day following the MC Exam. Written lab reports are to be kept in the laboratory research notebook [CR8].

Physiology

The purpose of Human Anatomy & Physiology is to provide exploratory experiences, laboratory and real-life applications in the better understanding of the human body. The topics to be covered will include basic anatomy and physiology; a review of basic chemistry; cells and tissue: skin and body membranes; the body systems and hierarchy: integumentary, skeletal and muscular systems. The student shall be able to then analyze the body in terms of each body part separately and as part of the whole body.
The student will:
• be capable of researching from multimedia sources and use information to meet class participation and assignment requirements
• demonstrate communication skills using multimedia technologies
• apply problem-solving abilities
• form connections and recognize patterns through analysis, interpretation, summarization
• demonstrate responsible and ethical practices, enhanced self-esteem, and successful social dynamics
• interact successfully with natural, social, political, and organizational systems
• work cooperatively and effectively with diverse groups in a variety of situations
• demonstrate effective leadership through communication, decision making, and conflict resolution
• interact respectfully with peers, faculty, and other community members from their own culture and other cultures
• exhibit characteristics of integrity befitting a role model by physically, mentally, and emotionally supporting others
