About Colleen

I have over 20 years of experience teaching college Biology, Anatomy, and Physiology. I have over 5 years of experience as an AP Biology,College Biology, Anatomy & Physiology, and Microbiology tutor. I can help with college or high school science coursework, homework, and test preparation. As a former Associate Professor of Biology I taught Anatomy, Physiology, and Nutrition at a local college for 8 years and prior to that I taught Biology I and II, Anatomy and Physiology I and II, Microbiology, Nutrition, and Remedial Math in the states of Tennessee and Georgia.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Canisius College, a Master's degree in Dairy Science from Louisiana State University, and a Doctorate in Animal and Dairy Science from The University of Georgia. My graduate school coursework included over 70 credit hours in Anatomy, Physiology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, and Nutrition.

The thing I most enjoyed about my job as an Associate Professor of Biology was the one-to-one time helping students with the course material, study skills, learning styles, and time management. My greatest joy was seeing a student improve their grades, study skills, and test taking skills. My students highly recommended me to their friends and described me as a Professor who takes the time to help the students individually and who cares about the students and their success.

* I am great at explaining tricky concepts in a way that is easy to understand and easy to remember.
* My students have improved their study skills and understanding of the concepts and how to apply them.
* My students have been successful in completing their work and reaching their goals.
* My students have increased their confidence so they were more successful in test and exam situations.
* I offer a kind and caring environment for students of all needs.

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.

ACT Science

I have over 20 years experience as a College Biology Professor and over 5 years experience as a Science tutor.

Anatomy

I have over 20 years of experience teaching College Anatomy courses and several years experience as an Anatomy Tutor. As an undergrad, I took 8 credit hours in Comparative Anatomy. My graduate school coursework included Anatomy, as well.

Biochemistry

I took 4 credit hours in Biochemistry at the undergraduate level and 16 credit hours in Biochemistry as part of my graduate coursework.

Biology

I have over 10 years' experience teaching College Biology courses and several years experience as a Biology Tutor. I received a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Canisius College in 1985. My graduate school coursework included Anatomy, Biochemistry, Physiology, Microbiology and Nutrition Courses.

Microbiology

I took 4 credit hours in Microbiology as an undergraduate, and my graduate school coursework included 10 credit hours in Microbiology.

Nutrition

I have 32 graduate credit hours in Nutrition courses: Energy in Nutrition, Minerals in Nutrition,Vitamins in Nutrition, Nutritional Aspects of Growth and Development, Bioenergetics, Advanced Dairy Nutrition, Applied Animal Nutrition, Ruminant Nutrition and Monogastric Nutrition. In addition, I have 26 graduate credit hours in Physiology and Biochemistry: Advanced Biochemistry (BCH 801 & 802), Problems in Biochemistry, Mammalian Physiology, Ruminant Physiology, and Rumen Physiology & Metabolism. I have a Ph.D. in Animal & Dairy Science (major: Nutrition) from The University of Georgia, and a M.S. in Dairy Science (major: Nutrition)from Louisiana State University. As an Assistant Professor of Biology I taught Consumer Nutrition and Advanced Nutrition courses.

The local college students that I have tutored in the past two years have developed a better understanding of Physiology and have successfully completed their course. Physiology requires both learning and applying the information. As a tutor I can help you to understand the concepts and how to apply them.

Regents

I have over 20 years experience as a college Biology Professor and over 6 years experience as a Biology tutor. I have specialized in tutoring students for the Biology Regents exam and the AP Biology exam. I have over 70 college credits in Biology and Science courses.

Study Skills

As a tutor with over 5 years experience and a former college professor I have observed that many students lack study skills. I have worked with my tutoring students and college students to improve their study skills. I have had professional development training as a college professor on study skills and learning styles. I, myself developed study skills while attending college that I wish I had learned in high school. These study skills helped me to successful complete 11 years of college and earn a Ph.D. Some of the study skills that I teach include how to make flash cards, using acronyms, reviewing class notes, how to study a textbook, setting goals, and managing time.

Amazing tutor! — Colleen is an amazing tutor! I worked with Colleen for a majority of my junior year on AP Bio. She is very patient and uses key words and phrases to help you understand the topics. She prepared me for all my tests and if I ever had a question during the week she was just a phone call or an email away. She guides you through the material and makes the information very easy to understand. Biology wa ...
