About Jordan

I have a PhD in Experimental Psychology (Behavioral Pharmacology) from Auburn University and postdoctoral training from Duke University. I just moved to Michigan State University for a research job in neurotoxicology. I love to learn and help others appreciate the joy and importance of learning at all levels. I have taught undergraduate courses at a large state school and at a small community college in Behavioral Pharmacology, Introduction to Psychology and Statistics. I have tutored middle school and high school students in Statistics and English and I have tutored undergraduates in many Psychology courses (e.g. Pharmacology, Toxicology, Research Methods, History of Psychology) as well as Statistics. I served as an undergraduate mentor in Experiential Research during my graduate training and currently serve as a mentor to high school and undergraduate students in laboratory research. I would love the opportunity to help you or your loved ones succeed in their studies!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 received my PhD from a Behavioral Pharmacology and Toxicology laboratory and have published in the peer-reviewed journal "Psychopharmacology". I have taught three semesters of behavioral pharmacology to undergraduates. I have taken 3 undergraduate and >5 graduate level courses that dealt with issues related to pharmacology. Additionally, I have been (and currently am) a member of many pharmacology journal clubs in which I read primary literature in the field of pharmacology.

I understand and can teach the basic concepts of Pharmacology (e.g. the history of pharmacology as a science, drug action, behavioral effects, pharmacokinetics, topics in drug abuse, etc.) as well as advanced issues that deal with the application of pharmacology in the laboratory.

Writing

I have extensive experience as a writing tutor at the undergraduate and graduate student level. I have published >10 scientific and >5 non-scientific articles.

Very Patient

Jordan was very patient with me. She would explain procedures as well as demonstrate each one. I'm glad I had a chance to work with Jordan. A few things have come up so I must put my computer tutoring on hold for a month or so. This fall I plan on contacting Jordan for more instructions. Thank you Wyzant and Jordan.
