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!

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.

Hashim, 7 lessons with Paula

Great teacher

Dr. U. is a very good teacher. Her teaching style involves establishing a framework first and then slowly building on it to make sure all the material is understandable. I have not come across a topic in Biochem that Dr. U. did not know. Highly recommend her as a biochemistry tutor.

Sabrina, 8 lessons with Paula

Knowledgeable and dynamic tutor

Paula retaught me various concepts about Chemistry in a review activity for class. She was very thorough in her explanations, and ensured that I understood everything before we moved from one area to another. It was very helpful and I feel much more confident about the units we covered.

Isabel, 1 lesson with Paula

Takes time to make the student realize their potential

She does not only teach but also takes time to make the student realize their potential. She tests you too and points out deficiencies in the response to make you well grounded.

Akoaya, 1 lesson with Paula

Very Helpful!

Paula helped me immensely during my summer chemistry 2 course. She was very easy to reach and very flexible with setting up tutoring hours. Being very proficient in chemistry, Paula was able to help me review and retain a lot of material over a short amount of time.
