Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (Biology)
University of Maine (PhD)
I am passionate about helping students of all ages and grade levels to be successful in the field of biology and become excited about learning how the world around them functions. My favorite subjects are biology, toxicology, biochemistry, molecular biology and botany to name a few. My teaching experience includes having taught seminar topics to graduate level students and a biology course including a wet lab to homeschooling students in Calvert County, MD. I have also presented my own research at 29 different professional meetings and published 6 papers and am currently working to publish a book chapter for a graduate level text book.
I graduated magna cum laude with a full tuition scholarship from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in 2004 with a degree in biology. I earned my Ph.D. in 2013 from the University of Maine with a degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology with an emphasis in toxicology. My own continuing education is currently in risk assessment and non-profit management. I have experience working with non-profit organizations and consulting firms.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, sailing and traveling with my husband, two beautiful daughters and new puppy.
My students have told me that I make learning biology exciting and fun but also challenging. Parents have thanked me for spending the extra time with their students to ensure their success in their studies but also to learn to love the art of learning. I would be happy to help you or your student become successful and excited about their science studies too!
I would be happy to meet you for a consultation to discover your current struggles in your science studies and determine how together we can ensure you embark on the road to success in your studies but also do it with excitement!

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.
