About Michael

I have over 25 years experience in higher education. I have been a university biology professor, biology department chairperson, an assistant dean, and a dean of academic affairs.

I have mentored students who have gone on to complete Ph.D and MD degrees in addition to being a pre-med advisor and a member of the Medical Advisory Committee responsible for interviewing students for medical school admission. I have spent the past year teaching Anatomy and Physiology , and Microbiology courses to nursing students (RN) at a local institution as an adjunct faculty member. I am sure that I can help you accomplish your goals.

In addition to tutoring I am also available to review essays and statements for professional school applications (MCAT, DAT, PCAT etc), and any form of scientific writing.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 taught Anatomy for 15 years at university level.

Genetics

I completed advanced genetics courses in graduate school including evolutionary genetics and population genetics. As a university professor, I taught a human genetics course for fifteen years. As part of an Evolution course I taught at the University, population and transmission genetics were integral parts of the course. This more than qualifies me to tutor in genetics.

Photography

I am a freelance photographer with over 20 years of photography experience in film and now digital photography. I am a member of the International Organization of Freelance Photographers. I have maintained a home studio for years, from which I operate my small business called Foster Photography. I teach digital camera operation, introduction to photoshop/digital photography software, portraiture, photo composition, and miscellaneous photography techniques.

Public Speaking

As a professor and dean I am used to public speaking. I took a Speech class as an undergraduate and was awarded "best speaker" in addition to getting an "A" in the class. Additionally I have given several public addresses in my professional career.

Speech

I have a PhD in biological sciences and I lectured for over 25 years. I have been an invited speaker for a variety of organizations and I have taught public speaking to college students. I have also made numerous presentations at scientific meetings.

Writing

I have been a college professor for over 20 years and I have taught many students how to write. I have published papers and edited many documents and assignments. I can help you too.

Zoology

My doctoral work required me to qualify and complete graduate work in two areas of study. One of those areas wad Zoology. I completed the qualifying exam and coursework and comprehensive examination in Zoology. My research involved terrestriial vertebrates, specifically Peromyscine rodents.
