I have a B.S. in Psychology with an emphasis in bio-behavioral Psychology and a Ph.D. in Physiology with an emphasis in neuroscience. I have taught graduate, medical and allied health profession students. I also have two children who have survived high school science (Biology, AP Bio) with a little bit of help. One is now a biology major in college. I understand that many students are required to take the basic sciences and struggle their way through them. I hope to make the experience of learning science a more enjoyable and successful one.
I enjoy teaching science because it allows me to share my enthusiasm for the field with students. Science is continually moving forward offering new frontiers and constant discovery. It is a pleasure to increase student's understanding and interest in these subjects. Students often fear math and science. Science has a bad and unrealistic reputation for being difficult. I believe that the biological sciences are very logical and that students can enjoy learning if they are given the right direction and a patient tutor. I realize that students have different learning styles and I endeavor to tutor to individual learning styles.
I have a Ph.D. in Physiology from Ohio State University. My specialty is neuroscience, but I have always enjoyed all areas of the biological science. I have taught/tutored physiology and since since graduate school. Following graduate school, I worked as a biomedical researcher for many years. I have a great deal of experience in the scientific methodology including: hypothesis generation; experimental design; data collection and analyses; and publication. I have taught many graduate, medical and nursing students. My science education has also allowed me to expand my career into other areas such as public health and continues to allow me to grow in my career.
I would enjoy helping you (your student) better understand and achieve great grades in science. From the Kreb cycle to the nervous system, it is all an amazing puzzle that should not be intimidating. With a little work, determination from a student and patience and guidance in tutoring, science can be an enjoyable subject to master.

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.
