About Geoff

Don't despair over tough biological concepts. You now have a university instructor available for help! During my office hours, I offer one-on-one assistance to many students who struggle to make sense of the huge jumble of information presented to them each week. If you are finding it hard to tell the difference between a duodenum and an ilium under the microscope or you're perhaps having trouble remembering whether a Benedict's or Biuret's reagent is used to test for polypeptide digestion, you can count on me to provide the tools you need to excel in your class. I consistently receive high praise from my students because I genuinely want to do everything possible to help them and I make it enjoyable to learn. Furthermore, while most instructors and tutors simply teach the materials, I put them into practice and as a result, my past health problems are gone. I want you to have the same good experience because tutoring and instruction should be more than just a quick summary of facts to be forgotten later.

I have taught human Anatomy & Physiology for several years at UNLV. Prior to that, I trained people to work in the fields of blood and tissue/eye donation for more than a decade. As a result, I have real-world experience with the internal tissues and organs you will be studying and I am very experienced in making the material very simple to grasp.

Before I began teaching anatomy and physiology as well as introductory biology, I worked at a cardiologist's office, a tissue/eye bank, and a blood bank. If your future goals involve health care, you can benefit from the experience I have which spans more than a decade. For much of my time within the health care field, I trained staff to perform complex procedures and I've devised many simple ways to do so. You will benefit from my approach, in which I simplify the most difficult concepts in biology. More importantly, I always take the perspective of the student, which means I am not going to make the mistake that many instructors make of assuming you should already know things that you may not have learned yet. Plenty of biology instructors and tutors are proficient at what they do, but I am confident you will find me to be your best choice because I will be able to relate the material directly to you, which means you won't be relying merely on rote memorization; you will truly understand the material and will be able to retain it longer.

My services are not just reserved for the future health care professionals, however. If your future plans involve nutrition, exercise physiology, kinesiology, sports medicine, etc., then I have plenty to offer. One reason I chose to teach anatomy and physiology over other subjects in biology is that this particular subject relates to everyone. You don't have to be an athlete to know that we all have a human body and the more we learn about how it works, the more we can take care of it. A fortune is spent on products and gadgets that are marketed toward making the body look better or feel better but without proper knowledge of biology, that fortune is largely wasted. If you are looking to empower yourself with accurate information to improve your life or to help others, then look no further.

Whatever your future plans or whatever your background, if you are looking to learn more about biology and get help with some of the toughest subjects, then I'm the right tutor for you. Contact me with questions if you have any and I look forward to being your tutor!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anatomy

As an instructor in Anatomy and Physiology, I have seen the common hangups that students experience and I know the best ways for students to get around them. You won't have to rely solely on rote memorization. With my instruction, you'll have a real understanding of how the body works and how its parts work together. I have developed unique visual and auditory tools which my students have highly praised. I'm certain you'll be pleased with them, too.

Biology

Apart from teaching human Anatomy & Physiology for several years at UNLV, I have also taught an introductory course in biology. Prior to that, I trained people to work in the fields of blood and tissue/eye donation for more than a decade. As a result, I have real-world experience with the internal tissues and organs you will be studying and I am very experienced in making the material very simple to grasp.
