I am a former Cancer Biologist who has taught undergraduate biology and biomedical sciences classes at UAB and Birmingham-Southern. I have a great passion and gift for teaching that I am happy to share with anyone that I can help. I worked for nine summers at a local camp teaching classes on subjects that I knew well and that I was learning from experts as I taught. Learning is an important life skill.

I am a former Cancer Biologist who has taught undergraduate biology and biomedical sciences classes at UAB and Birmingham-Southern. I have a great passion and gift for teaching that I am happy to share with anyone that I can help. I worked for nine summers at a local camp teaching classes on subjects that I knew well and that I was learning from experts as I taught. Learning is an important life skill. When you learn "how to learn," any subject becomes much easier. I am happy to help you learn to pass a test or course - but more importantly I would like to help make your future studies easier and more enjoyable. I am willing to help in a variety of subjects at the elementary, middle high school or college level in addition to my expertise in language/communication and science at the collegiate level.
I graduated cum laude from Birmingham-Southern with a major in biology. I took general chemistry, organic chemistry, cellular and molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, and other biomedical courses. I prepared for the MCAT initially but decided that being a doctor was not for me. I have enjoyed conducting research as we all being a teaching assistant in undergraduate and graduate schools. I began work on my Ph.D. in Cancer Biology in 2012 but decided to leave early following a medical leave of absence. For a short period of time, I worked as a full-time Realtor, representing both owner-occupants and investors. I returned briefly to the lab in 2018. My projects have involved molecular biology, cell biology, animal models of disease, disease pathophysiology, drug resistance, immunology, genomics, metabolism, biochemistry, microbiology, bioinformatics and metabolomics.
I studied French for four years in high school and completed my minor in French at Birmingham-Southern. I conducted two independent research projects on the role of English and French language in the development of Quebecois society and Quebecois/Canadian language laws. I have a passion for teaching and enjoy learning the relationship

He taught me the details in relation to the Cycles that I needed to know for Biochemistry. He was so nice and patient. He let me interrupt him like a hundred times with questions, and he never minded. Which is so sweet of him. I highly recommend Will to anyone who is struggling with Biochem.Zahra, 1 lesson with Will
Extremely knowledgable tutor!!!
Will helped me review a very difficult genetics paper for a presentation, and he was extremely knowledgable despite the advanced techniques used in the paper. He is also very kind and good at teaching. I would definitely work with him again in the future!J, 1 lesson with Will
We contacted Will J. With a request to review a scientific essay without making direct changes to guide a student to making a great application. He was so helpful and in a very rapid, thorough and cost-effective manner. Thank you!Nina, 1 lesson with Will
