About Beth


Bio

My first Biology class, in 6th grade, sealed the deal - this was definitely what I wanted to study. I wasn't naturally good in math and chemistry, so I took extra courses in those subjects in college. I've been teaching since my senior year in college, starting with a course in Human Biology for non-science majors at Brown University.

Working on my PhD, I taught General Biology, Human Anatomy (with cadavers), and Vertebrate Anatomy; and also assisted on a 3-week ecology field trip in...

My first Biology class, in 6th grade, sealed the deal - this was definitely what I wanted to study. I wasn't naturally good in math and chemistry, so I took extra courses in those subjects in college. I've been teaching since my senior year in college, starting with a course in Human Biology for non-science majors at Brown University.

Working on my PhD, I taught General Biology, Human Anatomy (with cadavers), and Vertebrate Anatomy; and also assisted on a 3-week ecology field trip in Mexico. At the college level I teach Physiology, Nutrition, Environmental Science, Evolution,
Medical Terminology; my students are non-science majors and students studying for careers in health care.

I have over 20 years of teaching experience at the college level. I teach at the City Colleges of Chicago and tutor Biology and Chemistry in the Academic Success Center at Wright College; I've also taught at Devry, Roosevelt and Northeastern Universities in the Chicago area.

I love science, especially biology; my many students continue to help me understand how to describe and explain various subjects, especially when they may seem complicated and confusing.

We can work together one-on-one, or in small groups. I'm happy to meet parents or anyone else invested in your education, and answer any questions you have.

Ecology,

Ecology

Ecology was one of my subfields in my doctoral work Physiological Ecology.
Genetics,

Genetics

I have taught the basics of Genetics dozens of times in introductory biology courses for majors and non-majors. I also include sections on Biotechnology, esp. in regard to genetically modified foods, Epigenetics and Genomic Medicine in most of my classes - General Biology and Human Physiology. Topics I have taught many times: Genetics - basics of the cell cycle, mitosis, meiosis; chromosome structure, replication, transcription, translation; gene regulation; Mendelian inheritance; epigenetics
Microbiology,

Microbiology

In a 20 year career teaching a variety of Biology classes at the college level, I've taught Microbiology, with lab; taught key topics - basic cell biology, cell genetics, metabolism, human microbiomes and microbial ecology; untutored dozens of students in these subjects.
Nutrition,

Nutrition

I have a Ph.D. in Physiology, covering all subjects in Human Physiology including Digestion and Metabolism. I have taught Nutrition at the college level dozens of times, in physiology courses and as a full semester course. Nutrition is my special interest in physiology, because nutrition affects personal health more than any other choice we make on a daily basis. So I have taken nutrition courses since my degree, and include nutrition, food and agriculture in most of my courses. The nutrition topics I've taught many times include: Nutrition - What is nutrition? Macronutrients & micronutrients. The importance of water in the human body. Energy - calories & metabolism. Reading a nutrition label. The digestive system - organs & basic processes. The role of bacteria in nutrition -in food, in the digestive system. Nutrition in the life cycle; requirements at various stages. Nutrition for skeletal health. Nutrition for athletes. Body weight and health; BMI and other indices. Metabolic syndrome - diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and related conditions. Food, health, agriculture & the environment. Food preservatives & processing. Digestive & metabolic diseases.
Physiology,

Physiology

I have a Ph.D. in Comparative Anatomy & Physiology.
Zoology

Zoology

My Ph.D. is in Comparative Physiology, which I earned in the Zoology Department at the University of Oklahoma. My undergraduate science degree also included courses in the biology of diverse groups of organisms besides human beings: Invertebrate Biology, Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy, Primatology and Evolutionary Biology. Key topics in these courses included: Classification of animals. How different groups of animals adapt to their environment(s). Key physiological issues for all animals- temperature regulation, hydration, electrolyte balance, locomotion, habitat selection, predator defense, mate selection.

Literally awesome

Beth is literally the reason why I got the highest grade in my College Biology 3 class on three different exams. Takes her time but is so worth it as she explains literally everything. Very patient when you ask her questions, has great examples, explains things so nicely.

Arsham, 5 lessons with Beth

best physiology teacher!

Beth helped me study for an exam in my masters program for physiology. She was so kind and created an environment where I could ask any question no matter how “dumb” I thought it was. She has a great amount of knowledge when it comes to physiology and it showed because she was about to speak to me about many systems and topics without hesitation. She even accommodated 3+ hours in short notice. I will keep turning to her when I need more help!

Anatomy

Beth was amazing at helping me learn all the cranial nerves. She made it so easy and it all finally clicked. She paired them together in a different matter so it wasn’t just memorized. Thank you so much, Beth! I can’t wait to work with you again soon!

Ecology Tutor Beth

Beth was an excellent Ecology tutor. Her knowledge of the subject matter, helped get an A in the class. She cares about the student learning the information and works hard to help one learn and get the best grade possible. Couldn't have gotten through this course without Beth.

AP Bio tutoring

My daughter was very content with Beth’s style and her teaching methods. They covered AP bio subjects. I am sure my daughter will want to get tutored from her again if she needs a tutor in the future.

Wonderful Tutor

Beth is a great Biology tutor. She has been working with my son and she has been so helpful. His grade has gone up and his confidence has as well. She is very knowledgeable, has a warm personality and very patient. We are so glad we found her!

10/10 Incredible Tutor

I highly recommend Beth. I worked with Beth for over three months on my Biology 220 Genetics Course. It was a very difficult genetics course, and Beth helped me understand important concepts, problem sets and exam questions. We spent time going over very difficult material and Beth was able to explain it in a way that made sense. She was very accommodating and did her best to help me understand everything and answer all of my questions! She's an overall amazing tutor and person. Thank you, Beth!
