About Teresa

I have a PhD in Biology with an emphasis in Molecular and Cellular Biology. In addition, I have a teaching degree for grades 7-12 in Biology. I am currently employed at a local university where I teach courses in Basic Human Anatomy/Lab, Human Physiology/Lab, Humans and the Biological World and Improving Study Skills in Anatomy. I have experience teaching biology courses at several different Universities since 1992 and I have taught a wide range of courses including introductory biology, biology for major's, anatomy, human physiology and labs, ecology, vertebrate zoology, cell biology, genetics and laboratories in microbiology as well as biochemistry. Additionally, while attending college, I was a teaching assistant for 10 years in various courses such as molecular biology and microbiology laboratories.

Students give me feedback that I can explain material in a way that they can understand. I have 24 years experience in teaching at the college level in the field of biology, I believe that I am gifted in simplifying material so that a student can learn and this will be important in giving a student what he or she needs to improve grades on an exam. I have tutored students since I was in high school. In the past year, I have tutored many hours with students in person as well as online through WyZant and other tutoring services.

In addition to the many years of teaching experience at the college level, I have also designed courses for gifted students for different grades from first grade to ninth grade. These courses were offered through the Gifted Student Program at the University of Kentucky.

I feel the wide range of teaching experience will help me to be a great tutor for you in these subjects and I look forward to hearing from you. I do have experience with online tutoring if this is something you would like to pursue. I would be happy to be a tutor for you and will give you my best. Please contact me and thank you for your time and consideration.

Approved subjects

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.

Genetics

I have a Master's degree in Biology with an emphasis in Genetics. My research project involved genetics experiments with the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. I performed genetics experiments involving the rl gene in the pyrimidine pathway and obtained mutations within this pathway in the fruit fly species. I have also taught a Genetics laboratory at the University of KY.

Great tutor!

Teresa was an awesome tutor! She helped me prepare for my Biology EOC. She was very patient and explained things in a way that made it very easy for me to understand and remember. I would definitely use her again.
