Hi. I have a background in both teaching and biology. I have a Bachelor's degree and a graduate level teacher certification from Rider University. I have taught academic and honors biology at Pemberton High School. My approach to teaching is both to break down complicated ideas into smaller more manageable parts and to present ideas in interesting and fun ways. I also teach my students efficient time saving study methods.

Biology is the most important subject because living things are the most complex and dynamic chemical reactions. I love biology because it is such a dynamic subject. There are so many unknowns in biology; there are always new places to explore and discover. As a child, I was interested in dinosaurs, and that interest grew into a love of the natural world.

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

I learned biology, and have a degree from Rider University. My favorite subjects are cell biology, plant biology, marine biology, plankton ecology, and pine barrens ecology. I have taught academic and honors biology at Pemberton High School.

Chemistry

I have taken Intro to Chemistry, Chemistry 1, and Chemistry 2. I have kept a A- average in these three classes. I also do home chemistry labs using Robert Thompson's book.

Ecology

I have studied many ecological systems such as: the pine barrens, marine, salt marsh, fresh water ecology.

Genetics

At Ocean County College and Rider University all of my biology classes have included in depth coverage of genetics and related concepts. I have took a course at Rider U. and I was, as part of my lab work able to use RNAi to change the genetic expression of my test sample of C. elegans. Genetics and epigentics are the base on which evolution stand.

Microbiology

I have taken and studied microbiology at Rider University. I have also studied microorganism in a marine algae class and in my first general biology class. I have done my own research with bog iron forming bacteria in the pine barrens.
