About Gary

My undergraduate degree is a major in biology with a minor in chemistry. My masters is in education. I taught for 27 years at The Morristown-Beard School (MBS). I taught sophomore regular and honors biology for all 27 years and for 25 years I taught the AP biology. I have always connected well with upper school students both in the classroom and the pool. You see, I also started and coached the MBS swim team and then later started my own USS swim club which I ran for 10 years. Both my students and swimmers did very well.
Biology is not a series of "fill-in-the-blank", "multiple choice" questions, hence the essays on the AP exam.
Biology is mechanisms, biochemical reactions and processes. I teach the concepts and once the student understands them the terminology and vocabulary fall into place and make sense. My tests were 80% essays. Also my students where required to read and report on current developments in biology throughout the year.
I would like you to consider letting me help your student.
Thank you.
