UNC-Chapel Hill and UNC-Greensboro (Anthropology Biology)
UNC-Chapel Hill (Master's)
I'm was born and raised in Durham, NC! I went to UNC-Chapel Hill for my undergraduate education and received a degree in [cultural] Anthropology. I went to work in the anthropology department and continue my science studies at UNC-Greensboro, receiving a B.S. in Biology. I just completed my Master's of Public Health in Nutrition in Fall 2015. I love topics related to health, medicine, nutrition, food, agriculture, human biology, psychology, sociology and the interactions most living beings.
I tutored during my undergraduate career, and pride myself in helping others understand concepts in they way they learn and/or see the world. Textbooks and online information can be helpful, but overwhelming to many. It is important to learn the student's style of learning in order to figure out how to make any subject relevant to their mind's way of seeing the world. Who we are is the key to how we learn. Some things you will have to study hard no matter what; other things, you just need a new perspective and approach. I hope to offer that new outlook!
I have 10 years of experience in learning science, a B.A. Anthropology, B.S. Biology, and MPH Nutrition to show for it.
Don't hesitate to contact me to learn more, ask questions, and figure out if we're a good fit. I believe everyone deserves the best! I'm was born and raised in Durham, NC!

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.
I have a B.A. degree in Anthropology and tutored throughout my undergraduate career as well as when I worked as interim student assistant at UNC-G during my time there. I worked with HYPE at UNC (tutoring to disadvantage youth) and I had 3.5 major gpa. Anthropology is largely conceptual and theoretic requiring lessons in history, the impact of geography and nature on the body as well as on daily lives, and introduction to open-minded way of establish understanding human, rules, laws, and physical and cultural evolution.
I graduated with Master's in Public Health Nutrition, including undergraduate courses in Nutrition, Biochemistry (Macronutrients and Micronutrients), Food Science, Health Behavior, Medical Nutrition Therapy etc. I am also trained to be a Registered Dietitian. The subjects are challenging, but require a basic nutrition knowledge that builds. Tutoring this subject is about focusing on details/parts and how they interact with one another to form a bigger picture of nutrients effect on the body and environment.
