Hi! My name is Dr. Angela F. and I would enjoy tutoring you in any area of the biological sciences that you may need, as well as communication and natural sciences. I also help with research papers and theses.

I've been teaching for thirty-one years now at the college level. I taught for 14 years with the NC Community College System and then when I was married in 2002 I transferred to a four-year private college. I currently teach Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Nutrition for Edgecombe Community College, Carteret Community College, Craven Community College, and both Biology and Biological Anthropology for North Carolina Wesleyan College. I have taught a variety to science courses in addition to general biology - histology, embryology, cell and molecular biology, genetics, immunology, and anatomy and physiology.

I've listed my education below:
Education:
PhD - Duke University - Biology Anthropology and Anatomy
EdD - North Carolina State University – Higher Education Administration
MS - East Carolina University - Biology
MSSL - East Carolina University - Speech Language and Auditory Pathology
BS - North Carolina State University - Mechanical Engineering

I was also in the US Army, and served active during Desert Storm in Kuwait, as Public Affairs Officer. I later cross-trained as a Forensic Anthropologist so I spent quite a bit of my time with a remains identification unit. Following 9-11, I joined a military/civilian team and worked Ground Zero with a remains identification unit from December 2001 until May 2002. I again worked with a remains identification group in Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina.

I have spent a significant amount of time living in Madagascar studying handedness in sifakas (lemurs) and in Costa Rica working with white-faced capuchins. Obviously, biological and forensic anthropology are my academic passions. My husband and I have also spent several summers in Ethiopia working with locals on water quality issues. Andrew is also trained as an environmental scientist. I most recently completed a three-year grant in Chile where I've been working with the locals on treatment and education about schistosomiasis - a parasite that is prevalent in the area and can attack the bladder and intestines (two different species).

I live on the beautiful Pamlico River in the historic town of Bath, NC, with my husband, local author and chef Andrew, with our wonderful dog, Mason. We enjoy foreign travel, having visited twenty-six countries during the last decade. I do stain-glass restorations of historic windows in my spare time. I enjoy music and artwork of all types, but travel is my real passion.

I look forward to potentially working with you on whatever area requires the most work!

Great Tutor!

Mrs. Angela really helped me for the short time I had her. I started getting tutored about half way through the semester. Considering I was in risk of failure in my biology class, she was able to help me receive a C. I didn't think I was going to able to pull it up that much; therefore, I found her to be a great help. I only wish I would have hired her from the beginning. Overall, Mrs. Angela is a great tutor.

Bradley, 7 lessons with Angela

Great tutor, very patient

Angela did a great job explaining the information needed for my upcoming exams, as well as helping me understand what I missed on previous exams I have taken. Angela helped me reach my full potential and helped me push back my testing anxiety. I am so glad I got to work with her. She is one of the most patient and understanding tutors I have ever had and would love to work with her in the future if needed. She helped me obtain a C+ in a class that I was failing all semester. Without her help I would have failed the class.

Angela has been an extremely helpful and dedicated tutor. She truly cared about my daughter, communicated frequently and with helpful information, and was willing and able to do anything we needed from her. My daughter, a college freshman, loved and respected her as well. Angela is interested in making my daughter a better student and independent learner. I highly recommend Angela.
