About Barbara

I have always loved teaching others, as well as learning new skills. I have done a lot of training in my career and often held group classes for nurses when teaching laboratory test methods. My bachelor's degree was in Biology and I have spent my entire career in healthcare. At the age of 50 I went back to school to earn my MBA and moved into healthcare management. I have managed a clinical laboratory, family practice, and specialty practice. My background in biology, physiology, and chemistry has helped me to understand medicine and its processes throughout my career.

As a tutor I would give my full attention to my student and to the curriculum that is necessary to learn. I am and have always been an enthusiast when it comes to biology. However, in more recent years I have enjoyed running a business and all that is associated with those tasks. I can offer a practical approach to both subjects.

I would require 24 hours notice of cancellation but would be happy to reschedule any session that is missed. I am willing to travel to the student's home within reason and will provide updates and progress reports for the student and his/her family. My goal is to not only create a better understanding of the subject, but a love of learning that will last for an entire future career.
