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.

Biology

Biology to me is more than a collection of facts to be memorized. It is a passion. I have taught biology at UMBC and HCC for more than 10 years, specializing in topics ranging from general biology, anatomy and physiology, human heredity, and ecology and evolution. I do my best to help students understand the material, not simply attempt to memorize and regurgitate terms and definitions.

Bodybuilding

I have taken various styles of martial arts for more than 20 years. I have a strong background in Japanese martial arts (primarily Shotokan), as well as Korean styles (Tae Kwon Do), and even European fencing.

Physical Science

In addition to teaching Biology and Anatomy & Physiology, I also teach Environmental Science at a college.
