University of Richmond (Biology)
After a great career at AstraZeneca as a research scientist I would now like to pass on some of my knowledge to some young, up-and-coming scientists. I was a biology major at the University of Richmond (Go Spiders!) and then a graduate student in pharmacology at the University of Maryland.
I have mentored and taught many people in the work place but not in a formal educational setting. I do like working with young people - I have previously coached youth baseball and basketball for many years. I believe that we all have the ability to learn anything and that the process is dependent on how well the teacher and student communicate. Because of this, I like the concept of one-on-one tutoring since it allows for a deeper understanding of the issues at hand and for a better, and hopefully more meaningful relationship with another human being.
In addition to science, I'm a big sports fan, especially football and March Madness. I love to travel; like to watch old spy flicks and the Military Channel; and like to stay in shape (or at least try to ...).
My ability to teach biological/biomedical science stems from my real world experience incorporating many "textbook" principles into practice in preclinical drug development. I also have a very patient personality that is often required to not only teach the subject but to also boost a student's own confidence in their ability to learn.
My ability to teach Elementary school level Math is again due to my patience and desire to see a young person persevere and overcome an obstacle to their success.
If you'd like to learn something difficult in a fun way with a practical focus give me a call.

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.
