About Will

Hello students, I am a recent graduate of UC Santa Cruz (BA Anthropology, cum laude, highest honors) and am currently working towards a Master's degree in anthropology at Iowa State University. I have extensive experience in the anatomical sciences and in tutoring French and am ready to help you through these challenging subjects!

Anatomy can be a very difficult course requiring hours of work daily. Fortunately, I know many useful tips that will get you through this course making it a rewarding experience. I was appointed as lecturer for the human anatomy lab at UC Santa Cruz for two academic quarters, served as a teaching assistant for three consecutive years and dissecting primates in a comparative anatomy lab for two years. I also took and received A-grades in courses such as skeletal biology, vertebrate paleontology, and development and physiology at UC Santa Cruz.

In addition to my expertise in anatomy, I have a strong background in French. After studying French at the university level I left for Québec, Canada where I developed fluency in the language through full immersion. It can be difficult to learn a foreign language though I believe that all it takes is motivation and practice. My enthusiasm and knowledge of French would make me an excellent tutor for any beginning/intermediate student.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals!

Anthropology

I graduated with a BA in anthropology at University of California, Santa Cruz. I received highest honors in the major and graduated cum laude. My coursework has spanned the major subfields of anthropology including physical anthropology, cultural anthropology and archaeology. Moreover, I have fieldwork and lab experience consisting of studying primate behavior in Uganda for three months and volunteering in a primate anatomy lab for two years. This experience has enabled me to apply my anthropological training for practical purposes.

After studying French at the university level I left for Québec, Canada where I developed fluency in the language through full immersion.
