U. Wisconsin-Madison (PhD)
I have a PhD in biology and a number of years of experience teaching biology (hands on and/or multimedia approach) at a local community college. I love it when I am able to help a student really learn something and especially so if that makes them excited about the subject of biology for the first time.
Please contact me to schedule lessons if you are interested. Just remember, as G.K. Chesterton put it,
"There are no uninteresting subjects. There are only uninterested people."

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.
I have always loved American history, since my father brought home videos about the Boston Masssacre and the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Living near the Boston area, I absorbed many sights and sites, and my first adult-level book was on this topic. Later I avidly researched back to the era of the early European settlers, and forward through the time of the Constitution, the Civil War, World War II, and beyond.
I have a doctorate in biology, focusing on the cell and molecular level of organization. I have over 5 years experience teaching on the community college level. Most of all, I am always in awe at the wonders about which I teach. Some may find it "dull as ditchwater", but as G.K. Chesterton put it, "Is ditchwater dull? Naturalists with microscopes find it teems with quiet fun."
As a boy I loved the ideal (not, alas, always to be found perfectly expressed in the historical record) of the knight in shining armor.
More prosaically, perhaps, I have a Humanities Concentration in Medieval culture and literature (from the rise of the Roman Republic through the end of the Renaissance).
I have a doctorate in philosophy! True, it is in what used to be called "natural philosophy", specifically biological science. Still, I can also claim a minor concentration in medieval and renaissance culture, in which I was particularly avid in studying Saint Thomas Aquinas and Erasmus of Rotterdam. Since then I have continued my reading and pondering of the subject. My sense of wonder is wonderfully intact.
