I've been teaching and doing research at Texas A&M University for over a decade. Since earning a Ph.D. in 1999, I've taught several Biology courses including Microbiology, Molecular Cell Biology, and Introductory Biology at Texas A&M and Blinn College.
The classes I've taught have ranged from small groups of twenty students to lectures of more than 300 students. I've also mentored over a dozen students at a one-to-one level in independent research laboratory work.
From the wide diversity of these students, I've learned that each student comes from a different background and level of understanding. Through years of experience I've learned to try different approaches towards communicating the class material and concepts. Some general learning techniques are effective for everyone, and personalized methods can be even more effective and motivating.
I have a Ph.D. in Molecular Cell and Developmental Biology and an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry. The diverse research I've been involved with at TAMU includes microbial genetics, avian immunology and circadian rhythms in the Departments of Biology, Poultry Science, and Nutrition and Food Sciences. I specialize in microbiology, genetics, biochemistry and molecular cell biology. My other interests include history, physics and music. I enjoy teaching people the interesting things I've learned.
My schedule is fairly flexible, and I am often available to tutor in the evenings and on weekends. I prefer meeting in a comfortable environment, such as the Library at Texas A&M if you're a student there. I do have a one hour cancellation policy and I'll work with you on scheduling a good time and place. Online tutoring may also be an option.
I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you improve your learning skills and comprehension.
Although I am not by any means a grandmaster, I have been playing chess for over forty years. I have beaten several players who rank in the 1800-1999 range, which would place me as below an expert in the "Class A" range. I am familiar with many of the chess opening styles and the strategic theories for game development. I've learned that developing a personal chess style involves learning both the mechanics of the game as well as the psychological factors that influence play.
My PhD dissertation was on the genetics of the Neurospora circadian clock. This led to the publication of two papers in the journal Genetics and a follow-up review of clock genetics in the Philosophical Transaction of the Royal Society of London. I have subsequently published two more papers in genetics journals.
