About Gerald

I have been teaching courses in the most fascinating subjects there are: (at least to me) Neuroscience and Psychology for over twenty years. I have a Ph.D. in Behavioral Neuropharmacology from Binghamton University and I am currently an Associate Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Southern University Baton Rouge where I teach undergraduate courses in Physiological Psychology, Sensation/Perception, and History/Systems in Psychology. I am also an adjunct professor of Psychology at Louisiana State University where I have taught those same courses as well as Psychopharmacology and Psychological Theories of Learning. Perhaps the best "PR" for my teaching abilities and enthusiasm can be found from the opinions of my students which be seen on professor rating sites.

If I were to act as my "own" Public Relations or Marketing consultant, the best description I could give you of my teaching style is to take great pains to explain even the seemingly most abstract of concepts and, in a conversational style, talk about them using "real time / real life" examples of experiences and situations we have every day. I have received considerable amounts of feedback from students that the classes were entertaining and occasionally, didn't even seem like "learning something for a course requirement" --until the student was evaluated on their knowledge and found, to their surprise, that they had indeed mastered the material.

Importantly, pulling off "this trick" requires that I hold myself to a very high standard of mastery over the material myself;it is what allows me to feel comfortable teaching in a casual, conversational style. If, as a student or parent, you feel that I have not achieved this benchmark --you merely need to tell me this and I will not bill for the session --it is that important to me that I stick to my standards.

Also, to make sure both student and teacher are "hitting our marks" I will often assign homework and provide periodic assessments pertaining to the subject matter.

I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, however, time permitting, I am often willing to offer "makeup" sessions. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your learning goals.

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.

Pharmacology

I earned my Ph.D. in Behavioral Neuropharmacology in the laboratory of Dr. Linda Spear, Distinguished Professor of Neurobehavioral Teratology at Binghamton University. My Doctoral Dissertation is still considered to be the first ecologically valid animal model of prenatal cocaine exposure and was awarded the Distinguished Dissertation Award in Science and Mathematics in 1997; the project resulted in several highly cited and very influential publications --continuing to be cited regularly in the fields of Neuropharmacology, Psychopharmacology, and Environmental Toxicology. I have taught courses at the undergraduate, graduate, and medical school level in Psychopharmacology, Developmental Neurotoxicology and Teratology, Drugs and Human Behavior, CNS Pharmacology, and most recently, National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Law Enforcement Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) in modules dealing with substance abuse and Co-Occurring Substance Abuse and Mental Illness in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana.

Physiology

PROFESSIONAL AND RESEARCH EXPERIENCE
I am an Associate Professor of Psychology Southern University Baton Rouge, Department of Psychology. Baton Rouge, LA.

As an educator and researcher at the university level, I have both developed and implemented Neurophysiological components of the Psychology curriculum for courses in Sensory Physiology, with an accompanying laboratory module investigating the relationship between neurophysiological/Neuropharmacological manipulations and changes in sensory behavior using operant psychophysical methods, and taught Physiological Psychology at the undergraduate level which met the criteria for acceptance into the Louisiana Substance Abuse Certification Program. More generally, my teaching experience includes courses in Physiological Psychology, Sensation & Perception, Psychopharmacology, Developmental Psychology, Advanced Statistics, and Behavioral Neuropharmacology from 1998 to the present at several Universities and Medical Schools in Baton Rouge Louisiana and Jackson Mississippi.
