About Beverly

Although I very much enjoyed doing research in molecular genetics and marine mammal toxicology while at A&M, my appointment at UT was entirely for teaching and service. For fifteen years my full-time attention has been devoted to students, their successes and their struggles. Certainly I enjoy teaching at the college level. However, as a good teacher who understands the material, I can tailor an explanation for students at any level.
I've always loved office hours because it's an opportunity to break through obstacles hindering the individual student. Sometimes those obstacles are about the class material. Sometimes they have more to do with organization or study strategies. I see tutoring as an extension of that experience; so while I listed only minor tutoring experience in an independent paid-per-hour sense, I actually have over 18 years of experience working with students who need extra help one-on-one.

I have a Ph.D. in Genetics from Texas A&M University, where I fell in love with teaching. As a lecturer at the University of Texas from 2000 to 2015, I taught courses in Introductory Biology as well as Genetics. There I earned various teaching awards from both faculty and students, including the College of Natural Sciences Teaching Excellence Award and the Senate of College Councils' Professor of the Semester.

Even if you're lost and don't know where to start, I can help you. Let's sit down and work it out together.

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.

Genetics

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science in 1993 and a Ph.D. in Genetics in 2000 from Texas A&M University, where I fell in love with teaching. I worked hard at it, tutoring and teaching seven semesters instead of the required two while a graduate student. As a lecturer at the University of Texas from 2000 to 2015, I taught courses in Introductory Biology as well as Genetics. There I earned various teaching awards from both faculty and students, including the College of Natural Sciences Teaching Excellence Award in 2007 and the Senate of College Councils' Professor of the Semester in 2015.
