After graduating from Bucknell University in 1991, I became a high school biology teacher back at home in the United States Virgin Islands. I taught for six years and then left to take a job with the US Fish and Wildlife Service as an interpretive park ranger and field biologist. I worked on a National Wildlife Refuge and conducted programs where students were able to interact with endangered sea turtles and lizards as well as other wildlife. Thus, for the past 20 years, I have worked with thousands of young people of all ages both in and outside of the traditional classroom setting. Recently, I left the US Virgin Islands to enroll in graduate school and moved permanently to Maryland after getting married.

I enjoy teaching and my passion for the life sciences empowers me as an instructor. My research and field work have always included mentoring programs where I have trained student interns in field methods.

I am anxious to help students understand the concepts which make the life sciences so interesting and important.

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

All subjects from cell theory forward. I am particularly proficient in genetics, photosynthesis, meiosis and mitosis as well as all aspects of animal biology.

I have taught Advanced Placement Biology and have prepared many students for the AP exam.

Ecology

My work in conservation with populations of endangered species has made it vital that I understand ecological concepts.
