About Paula


Bio

I am what is known as a third culture kid, having lived by the age of 18 on 4 continents, in 6 countries, in 8 cities, in only 3 of which English was spoken. I was born to Anglophone parents, educated through High School graduation in the French Lycee system, including six years in Spain, where I mastered Spanish. I took Spanish as an elective throughout high school for my IB degree, as well as an advanced Spanish literature Class (in Spanish) as an undergraduate at McGill University in...

I am what is known as a third culture kid, having lived by the age of 18 on 4 continents, in 6 countries, in 8 cities, in only 3 of which English was spoken. I was born to Anglophone parents, educated through High School graduation in the French Lycee system, including six years in Spain, where I mastered Spanish. I took Spanish as an elective throughout high school for my IB degree, as well as an advanced Spanish literature Class (in Spanish) as an undergraduate at McGill University in Montreal. I worked for several years at McGill Tutoring Center where I was hired to teach fellow undergraduates Spanish, as well as French and Biology, prior to undertaking my graduate studies in Biology at an entirely francophone university in Quebec. After obtaining my PhD, I moved to Ottawa where I was temporarily employed by Berlitz as I began my first postdoctoral position, teaching French to Canadian government executives. I hold a Bachelor degree in Biology from McGill University with minors in Human Genetics and Neurobiology (1979) as well as a PhD in Biology with a concentration in Physiology and Cell Biology from Sherbrooke University in Quebec (1991). As a graduate student, I served as an instructor in both Undergraduate Genetics and Histology Biology Classes, as well as an instructor in the Graduate Biology Tissue Culture course. I have held and continue to pursue longstanding, deliberate and heartfelt formal as well as ad hoc commitments to educational academic activities through both didactic and experiential tutoring, lecturing and mentoring of college undergraduate, graduate and professional veterinary residents and students in the biomedical sciences. I have been entrusted with technical training of undergraduate and graduate students, veterinary residents and staff, as well as human hospital pathology residents and medical technologists. I have helped to steer a number of undergraduates through to successfully competing for national scholarships and into graduate programs in the Sciences and Professional Medical, Optometry, Physician Assistant Schools nationwide.
Whether you are a business-motivated or life-long learner, a college graduate or enrolled in college or a high-/ middle-/elementary school student, starting you up or supporting you along your journey to acquire improved French or Spanish language skills is why you may choose to work with me as a native fluent speaker. If on the other hand you are looking for support in the biological sciences at the university level or general sciences earlier on in elementary, middle or high school, I look forward to working with you as well!
