About Kimberly

I am a college professor with a variety of backgrounds. I started out as a medical laboratory scientist, then moved into teaching at the college-level the sciences of hematology, chemistry, blood banking, and body fluids. With a Master's degree in education, I also have a passion for teaching and learning. I love designing lessons and soon found myself in a Director position at a college. I currently teach professors how to teach more effectively and also teach college students and medical students interprofessional practice courses.

I miss teaching science courses and would LOVE the opportunity to tutor anyone that feels they could use some extra help. As a professor, I also write for publication and really enjoy editing papers and helping others learn to improve their writing. I like to add interest and practicality to my teaching, making sure the learner is having fun while also gaining knowledge they may actually use in their future. I've studied many a way to deliver lessons and how students learn best, so my bag of teaching tricks runs as deep as Mary Poppin's!

Science is fun!! Science is nothing more than the inquisitive mind unleashed. I particularly love the human body and even more so, the part we can't see with our naked eye. I specialize in human blood cells and all their adventures throughout our circulatory system. I have had a 10 year career working in a clinical laboratory where I lived staring into a microscope. Let me share my passion of biology and microbiology with you!

Reading and writing is what sets us apart from the other animals. It is through writing and reading that we establish cultures and histories. Everyone should develop a strong knack for both. I feel very strongly that written communication is one of the most important skills someone can have. No matter where you go in your life, you will need to write and should be able to do it well! Writing combines science and creativity and can spark your imagination. Writing is a skill that requires practice and I would love to help you practice.

I love teaching and look forward to helping you. Please contact me through WyzAnt and we can set up a lesson.

Look No Further!! — Kimberly is a patient and kind teacher who will bring out the best in your writing. I recently worked with Kimberly on an extensive paper where editing, paraphrasing and proofreading were essential to the project. She came through for me with flying colors. Kimberly was genuinely concerned about my success as a student. She helped me stay on point with the deadline of the project. If you are l ...
