I have a bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences with an emphasis in Ecology and a doctorate in Microbiology. I have performed research at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA (publication list available). I have mentored high school science students and have taught lecture courses to college students. I am a kind and patient teacher than can alter teaching/tutoring methods to fit the student.

Currently, I am a Microbiologist at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

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.

Microbiology

I have a PhD in Microbiology (2004) from Miami University. I completed courses at Miami University in microbial physiology, pathogenic microbiology, microbial ecology, among many others. Additionally, I taught a 100 student lecture course in Microorganisms and Human Disease. Following completion of the degree, I was a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital where I published many research papers in top-tier journals, including science publications. I also team-taught a mucosal immunology course to college student interns. I currently work for the Navy as a Research Microbiologist.

Public Speaking

As a child, I was soft spoken and I remember being quite afraid to take "Speech" class in high school. However, over the course of my scientific career, from a graduate student to post-doc and now as professional, I have had to perform a great amount of public speaking. I routinely speak to groups anywhere from 10 to 30 to 100 (largest ~250). I have had to develop my own style that was both effect to the audience and comfortable for me. I feel that I am able to help guide others to develop a style that works for them and provide insight and encouragement for becoming proficient at public speaking, a daunting task for many.
