I have always considered teaching to be my calling. I accumulated teaching and tutoring experience first as an undergraduate teaching assistant and later during my Masters' and PhD degrees. I followed with a college assistant professor position teaching several undergraduate and graduate courses in Biological Sciences. When my son was born, I decided to stay home to raise my family. However, I continued to teach as an adjunct faculty at a local college because teaching is an integral part of my life.

I have a strong background in Biology, Ecology, Wildlife Science, but also Biostatistics and Research Methods for those needing help with designing research studies and analyzing their data sets. I also specialize in TOEFL, GRE, and Romanian language. I strongly feel that teaching is an art and the purpose of education is not only to pass on important information, but to also instill "habits of mind." I believe it is the role of a teacher/tutor to generate a comfortable learning environment and to inspire enthusiasm in a student for gaining more knowledge about a subject. I start by knowing more about my student learning style and their strengths and weaknesses in a specific subject area. I believe that by adapting my teaching methods to each student individually, I help the students succeed not only in a particular subject but, moreover, in all of their academic endeavors by helping them know themselves better!

I offer a free consultation session to ensure we will make a good student-tutor match and we can establish goals for our cooperation. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, but I offer makeup sessions.

I look forward to helping you succeed in your academic endeavors!

Biology

I have earned a BS in Biology, with focus on Ecology and Environmental Protection, Masters' degree in Ecology and Environmental Management, and a PhD in Wildlife Science. As a college assistant professor I have taught General Biology, lecture and laboratory sections.

Biostatistics

As an undergraduate student and teaching assistant, I co-taught Biostatistics and Numerical Ecology. As a PhD student I took Experimental Design & Analysis and Regression Analysis (earned A in both courses). Later, as an assistant professor I taught Scientific Investigation and Communication for undergraduate students and Methods of Research for graduate students. I designed, analyzed my research data, and successfully published 13 publications in well-known journals.

Ecology

I have earned a BS in Biology, with focus on Ecology and Environmental Protection, a Masters' degree in Ecology and Environmental Management, and a PhD in Wildlife Science. As a college assistant professor I have taught General Biology, lecture and laboratory sections, as well as Herpetology, Scientific Investigation, Methods of Research, and Graduate Seminars in Wildlife and Applied Ecology.

Romanian

I am a native Romanian who lived and studied in Romania for 24 years. I then moved to the U.S. where I studied and worked for more than 12 years. I travel often (once or twice a year) to Romania and I speak and read Romanian all the time. I am very fluent in both Romanian and English.

SAS

As a PhD student I used SAS both for the statistics courses I took (I earned As in both courses) and for analyzing and publishing my research data. As a college professor, I used SAS when teaching a graduate Research Methods course.

Statistics

As an undergraduate student and teaching assistant, I co-taught Biostatistics and Numerical Ecology. As a PhD student I took Experimental Design & Analysis and Regression Analysis (earned A in both courses). Later, as an assistant professor I taught Scientific Investigation and Communication for undergraduate students and Methods of Research for graduate students. I designed, analyzed my research data, and successfully published 13 publications in well-known journals.

Zoology

My educational background is in Biology, Ecology, and Environmental Protection and Management. I have taken courses in Animal Morphology, Animal Taxonomy, and Animal Physiology. During my PhD I worked with amphibians and as a college professor I taught Herpetology.
