About Catherine

I started my journey in the biological sciences at Georgetown University as a biology major. There, I did a undergrad thesis in computational biology and genetics and I learned Perl programing to do it. While at Georgetown I took cell biology, genetics, biochemistry and mammalian physiology to name a few of my favorites. After I graduated from Georgetown I took classes at the University of Maryland where I fell in love with Anatomy and Physiology. I had so much fun taking the class and helping my classmates understand the material that it pushed me to pursue more education so that I could teach.

I got my master's degree in Anatomy from Penn State in Hershey in the Spring of 2016. While at Penn State I had a unique opportunity to teach medical students and other Anatomy graduate students. Since then I have been looking for opportunities to teach students like you about structure and function of the human body!

So hopefully this brief background into explains why I am qualified to teach you in Anatomy and Physiology, but why choose me as your tutor? The simple answer is that I love to teach! I dedicated my life to learning and teaching and seeing how my students go from struggling to dominating in a subject so rewarding for me. My expertise is certainly Anatomy and Physiology but please contact me if you are interested in being tutored in other biological subjects such as genetics, biochemistry and even neuroscience. I look forward to meeting you and helping you succeed in your academic endeavors!

I have an undergraduate degree in biology and a master's degree in Anatomy. I tutored casually during my postgrad classes and was involved in teaching the medical students while at Penn State Hershey.

Hey Pasadena biological science students! Want a super motivated tutor living right across from PCC to help you realize your academic success? Look no further. I am a block away and available most times of the day.

Approved 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.

Anatomy

I am qualified to teach anatomy because I received a master's degree in anatomy from a program (Penn State University Hershey College of Medicine) that prepares graduates to teach anatomy to medical and other medical professional students. I have experience tutoring medical students in and out the laboratory in anatomy and neurobiology. I have experience tutoring students at the college level taking anatomy and physiology from the University of Maryland. I like to teach my students to approach anatomy in a hands-on manner and have many resource texts and online tools to suggest. Every student is different and I like to take time in discovering what combination of educational resources and study techniques will work for that student.

Biology

I am qualified to teach biology because I received a bachelor's degree in biology from a Georgetown University. I have experience tutoring middle and high school students some of which I tutored while babysitting/house sitting. More recently I have experience tutoring medical students in and out the laboratory in anatomy and neurobiology. I have experience tutoring students at the college level taking anatomy and physiology from the University of Maryland. I like to teach my students to approach biology in a hands-on manner and have many resource texts and studying strategies to suggest. Every student is different and I like to take time in discovering what combination of educational resources and study techniques will work for that student.
