I am a career educator with 35 years experience as a teacher, high school principal and school administrator. I have taught anatomy, physiology, biology, AP biology, chemistry, physics and algebra to high school students, undergraduate college students and graduate teacher candidates. During my career I have also been fortunate to have worked 3 years for NASA at Ames Research Station as a biological research assistant. I have earned a BA in Biological Sciences, an MS in Cellular Biology, and an MEd in school administration.
I have taught biology, anatomy and other sciences to thousands of students over the years. I have had many students go on to complete advanced degrees in Medicine and other graduate course work. I love teaching and love working with individuals to help open doors of knowledge regarding the natural world. I am well-liked by my students and in past years, was elected Teacher of the Year. I am an extremely patient and caring person who believes that all people can learn. I am highly skilled at finding ways to help anyone access and learn information.
I work very hard for my clients to ensure that our limited time together is highly productive and effective. This means that I prepare a lesson plan for each session that is specifically designed for the client. To maximize my effectiveness, I study material along with my student so that I am prepared and mindful of the concepts that need to be mastered. I am easy going and have a great sense of humor that help me enrich learning sessions.
As a professional educator I am highly trained in the processes of human learning and instructional psychology. I am a constructivist who believes that the acquisition of challenging new concepts happens when students identify the structure of their knowledge and the way that they best learn. By approaching tutoring is this way, real progress can be made.
