About Peg

I have my doctorate (PhD) in Biological Sciences with an emphasis in Microbiology. My employment background includes many years of working in a clinical environment (hospital microbiology laboratories; infection control) as well as teaching at the college level. The field of Biology is constantly changing and I truly enjoy teaching major biological concepts to students. One of my primary goals is to convey an appreciation of the subject matter itself. One of the reasons that I personally find the subject of biology so fascinating is that there are always several current topics in the mainstream news media that can be discussed and correlated with lecture material. This most often stimulates the student’s interest. I also stress the importance of comprehension and subsequent application of general facts and principles as opposed to pure memorization.

I utilize a problem or inquiry-based methodology in my teaching. In addition, I realize that students learn in different ways and I attempt to present the material accordingly. As a tutor, I would work with the course syllabus, text and study guide handed out by the instructor.

I am patient, approachable and definitely interested in the academic success of my students. I am respectful of my students and ask that they respect me as their instructor and tutor in order to establish a successful teaching environment.
