About Paula


Bio

Hello students! I am a Ph.D. in Neuroscience who specializes in protein biochemistry. I have been a faculty member at UT Southwestern Medical Center since 2004. I used to have/run my own laboratory, focusing on changes in protein phosphorylation and its potential role in brain disorders such as schizophrenia, drug addiction and Alzheimer's disease. A few years ago, I became a mother and I chose to close my laboratory and not work full time as a scientist any more. Instead, I now enjoy...

Hello students! I am a Ph.D. in Neuroscience who specializes in protein biochemistry. I have been a faculty member at UT Southwestern Medical Center since 2004. I used to have/run my own laboratory, focusing on changes in protein phosphorylation and its potential role in brain disorders such as schizophrenia, drug addiction and Alzheimer's disease. A few years ago, I became a mother and I chose to close my laboratory and not work full time as a scientist any more. Instead, I now enjoy lecturing psychiatrists at UT Southwestern, and helping students like yourself with their science courses. I am passionate about science and teaching, and I promise I will make the lessons RELEVANT and RELATABLE.
I am also fluent in 5 languages, including Spanish and French, and could tutor you in these languages if you'd prefer.
Let the FUN begin!

Reviews


Very knowledgeable and patient

She really helped me with Neuroscience and was very patient. I learnt a lot during a my session and it clarified a lot of doubts. The ideas were much clear after my session

Sanjay, 1 lesson with Paula

Excellent tutor for STEM!

Dr. Paula U. is patient and precise in responding to questions. She works very hard to simplify complex text into analogies that are digestible for students. Dr. U. is a great tutor that is persistent in making sure her students understand the material. She takes the time to go through the reading and focus tutoring sessions on the most important material. Her expertise in the field of neuroscience provides a great resource for questions.

Tae-Hyun, 12 lessons with Paula

Excellent

Paula is very passionate about science. Is a great teacher for those with no science background. I would highly recommend using her for your science related course needs.

Jonathan, 3 lessons with Paula

Doesn't focus on problems

Paula may be great if you are weak in background knowledge or just want to learn for fun but not if you want to get problems done within a certain time frame. We spent a half hour reviewing material that had little relevance to the actual biochemistry problem.

Nechama, 1 lesson with Paula

Helpful and Patient

Paula helped me grasp topics that I was having trouble in. She is very versatile with time and always willing to help. If I have future doubts with anything chemistry related, I will be sure to contact her again.

Giovanni, 3 lessons with Paula

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor

Paula introduced me to Biochemistry and Epigentics, and coached me through the process of beginning independent online research. She has so much knowledge at her command that an hour of her time completely worth the fee.

Thomas, 1 lesson with Paula

Great teacher!

She does a very good job at explaining each topic and ensuring that you understand before moving on. Definitely would recommend!

Seth, 5 lessons with Paula

Great tutor

Paula has taught me concepts of stoichiometry. She has also helped me to figure out how to solve chemistry problems by applying these. Because she speaks Spanish, I could have a class in my native language, which facilitated my understanding. She is a knowledgeable professor and very patient. I really recommend her.

Maria, 1 lesson with Paula

She is an amazing tutor.

Paula explained gated channels in a very clear and precise way. i finally understand how the membrane channels work. she only took 5 minutes to explain. She makes learning enjoyable.
