Hi! My name is Dr. Angela F. and I would enjoy tutoring you in any area of the biological sciences that you may need, as well as communication and natural sciences. I also help with research papers and theses.

I've been teaching for twenty-four years now at the college level. I taught for 14 years with the NC Community College System and then when I was married in 2002 I transferred to a four-year private college. I currently teach Biology and Anatomy and Physiology for Edgecombe Community College and both Biology and Biological Anthropology for North Carolina Wesleyan College. I have taught a variety to science courses in addition to general biology - histology, embryology, cell and molecular biology, genetics, immunology, and anatomy and physiology.

I've listed my education below:

Education:
PhD - Duke University - Biology Anthropology and Anatomy
EdD - North Carolina State University – Higher Education Administration
MS - East Carolina University - Biology
MSSL - East Carolina University - Speech Language and Auditory Pathology
BS - North Carolina State University - Mechanical Engineering

I was also in the US Army Reserves, and served active during Desert Storm in Kuwait. I started out as a photographer (many of my Desert Storm photos were published in magazines like Life) but cross-trained as a Forensic Anthropologist so I spent quite a bit of my time with a remains identification unit. Following 9-11, I joined a military/civilian team and worked Ground Zero with a remains identification unit from December 2001 until May 2002. I again worked with a remains identification group in Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina.

I have spent a significant amount of time living in Madagascar studying handedness in sifakas (lemurs) and in Costa Rica working with white-faced capuchins. Obviously, biological and forensic anthropology are my academic passions. My husband and I have also spent several summers in Ethiopia working with locals on water quality issues. Andrew is also trained as an environmental scientist. I most recently completed a three-year grant in Chile where I've been working with the locals on treatment and education about schistosomiasis - a parasite that is prevalent in the area and can attack the bladder and intestines (two different species). I work my photography into my work with both the primates and anthropological projects and occasionally have photos in National Geographic, Natural History, Smithsonian, and similar publications.

I live on the beautiful Pamlico River in the historic town of Bath, NC, with my husband, local author and chef Andrew, with our wonderful dog (Piper), seven cats, and three corn snakes. We enjoy foreign travel, having visited twenty-six countries during the last decade. I do stain-glass restorations of historic windows in my spare time. I enjoy music and artwork of all types, but travel is my real passion.

I look forward to potentially working with you on whatever area requires the most work!

Let's get started on the fast-paced summer classes right. Don't wait until you're in trouble. Let me help get ahead of the curve and stay there! Summer classes are extremely fast-faced. You cover an entire semester of material in only 5-10 weeks, depending your school and the type the class. It's easy to get behind and almost impossible to catch up, without help, once it happens.

It is important to understand that a tutor cannot solve your problems for you. The vast majority of the work must be done by you, the student. Most people see a tutor for no more than a few hours per week, which leaves many hours that the student needs to work independently on that course. If you are willing to do the work, I can guide you so that those hours are much more productive. As... read more

Awesome experience — I worked with Angela prior to taking the GRE for admission into a graduate program. I had a great deal of difficulty with anything relating to Math. My biggest fear was that I would have to spend money on session after session with a tutor and still possibly not pass the quantitative section of the GRE. I worked with Angela for only 2 sessions and was able to surpass the score I needed for grad ...
