The most important parts of improving test scores is understanding the material and being prepared for the challenge of a test or quiz. As a retired public school biology teacher and a professor of anatomy and physiology at the college level I can help with both aspects of improvement. I enjoy the process of helping students find understanding of hard concepts and making analogies and hands on demonstrations to help students remember. I am very familiar with the different types of questions asked on tests at both the high school and college level. I enjoy making it fun whenever possible.

I have taught Biology, AP Biology, Environmental Science, AP Environmental Science, Anatomy and Physiology, Forensics, and Physical Science during the course of 22 years as a high school teacher. I have taught Anatomy and Physiology as well as Biology at the college level.

I have both a Master's of Education and a Master's in Animal Nutrition with significant additional graduate coursework in forensics, neuroscience, and biochemistry.

Sherrill’s subjects

Anatomy

I have taught anatomy and physiology both at the high school and college level. I continue to teach it at the college level after retirement from teaching high school. I consider my strengths to be in finding appropriate analogies for understanding complex ideas and a thorough understanding of the material.

Biology

I taught several versions of biology in public school for the 22 years I taught. I have taught basic biology for struggling students, regular biology 1, biology for gifted students, regular biology II, basic biology II, AP Biology, AP Environmental science, and Anatomy and Physiology. All of these different biology courses have provided me with a library of strategies to assist students in understanding biology and the related concepts which can be challenging.

Ecology

During my career as a high school teacher I developed a class in environmental science and AP Environmental Science. For both classes, laboratory experiences and data collection and interpretation were an important part of the class. I took students and personally took classes in environmental field experiences to support classroom instruction in both classes.

Physical Science

I have taught physical science during my time as a high school teacher and feel comfortable with helping students develop strategies for understanding the material and remembering important concepts. I have worked with all levels of students from gifted to special needs.

Physiology

I have taught anatomy and physiology both at the high school and college level. I continue to teach it at the college level after retirement from teaching high school. I consider my strengths to be in finding appropriate analogies for understanding complex ideas and a thorough understanding of the material.
