About Catherine

I am a college anatomy and physiology instructor with training in general science, ecology, conservation biology, and toxicology. I've taught in the public school system and have earned a certification for 6-12 biology/chemistry. I am happy to help you with your understanding of biology as you prepare for tests, work on homework, or simply need to have a concept explained in a new and different way. I love science and love to find ways to help it make sense to my students.

Test Preparation:
ACT Science

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.

ACT Science

The ACT test is so important for college entrance and the science portion is no exception. This part of the test really doesn't require as much specific knowledge as it does a holistic understanding of how the parts and pieces of science actually work together. I'm happy to help you or your student learn to piece it up for a great score!

Anatomy

I have been teaching anatomy and physiology at the college level for 6+ years. I teach both semesters of a 2-semester course so I have a deep understanding of the subject. I really love to tutor it and help my students gain a deeper understanding of the beauty of the systems!

Biology

Ever since I first dissected a heart in 6th grade I have LOVED biology. In high school that was always my best grade! I love to teach the subject and help others appreciate it as much as I do.

Ecology

Ecology is my first love when it comes to the biological sciences. My master's degree was a biology MS with a focus in ecology. I love to tutor this subject and help my students better understand how the world they live in works!

Genetics

I have had college courses in genetics in addition to general biology genetics training. I student taught a genetics high school course. While teaching at the graduate level I taught genetics units.

Physiology

I have been teaching anatomy and physiology at the college level for 6+ years. I teach both semesters of a 2-semester course so I have a deep understanding of the subject. I really love to tutor it and help my students gain a deeper understanding of the beauty of the systems!

Zoology

I have taken two different animal physiology courses. During my graduate work I spent a good deal of my course time in vertebrate zoology. While teaching general biology courses I have incorporated a good deal of the zoological principles I have learned.
