I have spent the last 30 years working either for large corporations or as a small company entrepreneur.
Prior to starting a business career, my ambition was to be a professor at a university. After completing a Bachelor's degree in Biology/Physiology at UCSB, I attended graduate school in a joint program with Scripps Institute and San Diego State. I also started in a teaching credential program and taught Mathematics and Chemistry at a magnet high school in San Diego. The experience was rewarding.
I have six children, three of whom have graduated from college and two are attending college currently. I have been a math and science tutor for my children and their friends. I also review essays and reports in other subjects.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biology can be the most rewarding of sciences for the student. The discovery of the complexity and beauty of nature.
As a former physiologist, I enjoy helping students understand the nature of the universe. Learning science can be challenging and fulfilling for the student.
Fundamental to study skills is organization. There is a need to define problem areas in the curriculum as well as an enhancement in subject areas that the student is already comfortable. It is important to set up a study schedule based on the quiz and testing schedule. I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology/Physiology from UCSB, and I attended graduate school in a joint program with Scripps Institute and San Diego State.
