Dear student or parent,

I am a patient, intelligent and kind tutor. I teach all classes at the middle school level, and biology and psychology at all levels including high school and college. In addition, I have 5+ years of experience teaching students with special needs.

I tutor because I love to teach and because my successes make me happy. I succeed because I have an intuitive sense of where students can benefit most from my help. In many cases this allows me to very quickly help students, allowing them to progress back to full independence fairly rapidly.

I am highly qualified: I have a PhD from Johns Hopkins University in Molecular and Cellular Biology and 15 years of research and teaching. I also have a MA in psychology, and 8 years of teaching psychology and biopsychology.

I am also an artist: this means that I teach classes in the performance arts. This also means that I can apply my creativity to my teaching approaches.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have a MA in movement therapy and have worked with children and adults with ADHD, as a clinician, for 5 years. I currently serve as a BS for individuals with mental health challenges, for a local company.

In addition, I have a PhD in molecular biology, and use my clinical and academic resources and knowledge, to tutor the sciences to individuals with mental health challenges.

Aspergers

I have a PhD in molecular and cellular biology, and have taught over 30 biopsychology, psychology and psychopharmacology classes in the last 8 years at local colleges. The classes I have taught include the neurobiological basis of Autism.

I also have a MA in movement therapy and have worked as a clinician for adults with Autism and Aspergers, via a local company.

Ballet

Ballet: I have 25 years of experience as a ballet dancer. In addition, I have certifications from the Royal academy of Ballet up to the intermediate level of ballet (Cecchetti method). Finally I have an MA in dance movement therapy from Drexel University, PA.

Biology

PhD in Biology
20+ years as faculty in Biology

Study Skills

Study Skills: I teach the psychobiology of memory and attentions. When I do so, I teach my students how to apply it to their study skills. I have taught >31 psychobiology courses all of which include this material. Finally, I have a grant to study "metacognition" for this semester. This is basically the study of learning how to learn.
