I have been a biology
professor and personal tutor for the past 3.5 years. During this time I have taught Biology I and II for both majors and non-majors and Microbiology
. However my Ph.D. is in Genetics
and Development so I am extremely knowledgeable in these subjects as well. I currently teach at Richland College and the Northeast Campus of Tarrant County College, however, I have also taught at SMU.
Although I started off tutoring mostly college students, over the past couple of years my focus has turned to high school students attending both public and private institutions including Highland Park HS, St. Marks, Plano East HS, Hockaday, Bishop Lynch and Ursulin. I have extensive experience (over 200 hours) mentoring students in both regular and AP biology
. Additionally, I have helped several students prepare for the AP Biology exam.
Because I am a biology professor, my lecture notes (PowerPoints), quizzes, reviews and exams are all available to the students that I tutor/mentor. Additionally, I have access to certain online homework systems (Mastering Biology, Mastering Microbiology and Learn Smart) which also provide extra review materials for my students.
I have had great success tutoring high school students of all skills and backgrounds. So whether you are looking to maintain a high level of study throughout the semester, you need to improve your grades for college applications or if you need help studying for an exam, I'm your tutor. For instance, last year I started tutoring someone who was failing AP Biology. By the end of the spring semester, she had earned an A in the class with my help. Not only that, but she was exempt from even taking her final exam in Biology!
Typically I only take on a couple of students each semester depending on my work schedule and the needs of each student. My evenings are available for tutoring however my schedule is usually flexible. My hourly rate reflects upon my credentials, experience, provided materials and the demand for my services.
