I love to teach. Unfortunately, it is not something that is widely offered during the summer, so I turn to tutoring to fill that gap left by my lack of students. While science is my career, teaching is my passion. Currently, I teach at both University of North Carolina- Charlotte, as well as Rowan Cabarrus Community College. While I have been a college-level teacher for quite some time, I have not forgotten what it is like to be a student, as I am still currently a doctoral student at UNC-Charlotte as well.
I LOVE science! I am able to teach most of the biological sciences. I currently teach Anatomy and Physiology, however, I am happy to delve into General Biology, Zoology, or Microbiology. In addition to teaching/tutoring these subjects in the past, I also have extensive bench work experience with all of them as well. I am available to teach high school and above, anything from current classwork, general course overviews and reviews, or preparatory for future use.
My goal with tutoring is to genuinely get someone to LEARN something. I am not an overly serious person- I like to make myself someone you don't DREAD to see each session. I tend to use real world/pop culture relevance when reviewing particular topics (for example, relating CSI processes to General Biology concepts and procedures). I find that this helps maintain participation and interest with certain subjects. I usually cater my teaching style to the type of learner I have- auditory, visual, memorizers, etc. I also like to encourage independent participation. This helps gauge problem areas, and how to fix those knowledge gaps in order to grasp the complete topic.
Currently, I am working on a doctoral degree in Health Services Research, with a concentration in Health Education and Infectious Diseases. My Master's Degree is in Biology, with a concentration in Reproductive Endocrinology and Pathogenic Microbiology. My undergraduate work was a slight shift from the health field, with a biological concentration in zoology- primarily snakes and other reptiles.
I have recently been awarded the Provost Graduate Teaching Fellowship. I have also been nominated for the Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award as well.
My summer schedule is fairly open. I primarily work my own schedule in my laboratory (yes, I am still an active scientist while working on my degree). Just let me know when you would like to meet! My rate is 35$ an hour. I look forward to meeting you! I love to teach.

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.
My undergraduate degree is in Biology from the University of North Carolina- Wilmington. My concentration was in zoological sciences, mainly herpetology. In addition to designated coursework, this included zoological research projects (lasting 6-8 months). I have also tutored several people in particular aspects of zoology, including herpetology, parasitology, and marine vertebrate zoology.
