North Carolina State University, Raleigh NC; (Master's)

I have been tutoring since I was in middle school. During my Ph.D. program, I gained formal classroom teaching experience in the form of a microbiology laboratory comprised of 60 students per semester. When requested, I provided extra help for the microbiology lecture course that was taught in conjunction with the lab course. I am a graduate of Cornell University (Bachelor of Science in biological sciences, animal physiology concentration), North Carolina State University (Master of Science in physiology), and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Ph.D. in microbiology and immunology). Currently, I am a teaching assistant professor at N.C. State University, teaching graduate physiology. My areas of expertise extend to all of the life sciences, grammar and vocabulary, and math.
Teaching is my passion, and I believe that anyone can find enjoyment in education, if they can find a way relate to it personally. The more personal the topics are to students, the more involved they become in the learning process. My teaching philosophy is best summarized in a quote from Benjamin Franklin: “Tell me, and I forget. Teach me, and I remember. Involve me, and I learn.” Therefore, I strongly believe that it is my duty as a teacher to make each student a part of the course material in order to bring their education to life.

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've been playing lacrosse since middle school. During my senior year of high school, I was selected for the All-State Lacrosse Team in New York. Following graduation, I went on to play for the Varsity Women's Lacrosse Team at Cornell University. Since then, I have maintained my skills through pick-up games and practicing stick skills on my own.
I have extensive experience in practical microbiology as I have received my PhD. in microbiology from UNC-Chapel Hill. During graduate school, I taught college-level microbiology for 2 terms and have tutored some of my students who requested extra help. Currently, I am a faculty member at William Peace University, teaching microbiology lecture and lab to undergraduate students.
Professor for core courses of Physiology Graduate Program at NC State University.
I played Varsity volleyball for all four years of high school (New York). We were undefeated during my sophomore and senior years. I was the starting setter for my team during my junior and senior years and led the league in assists (senior year). I was also selected as the Athlete of the Week by our local news and sports channel and was featured in several newspaper articles for my volleyball statistics.
