FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We will go over the lesson materials you have available, discuss your concerns, and look for solutions together. I will assess your knowledge base with a few questions, and help you identify gaps. Then we will come up with a strategy to help you fill in your knowledge gaps that works best for you.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have 5 years of experience teaching the sciences ranging from human physiology, biology, earth science, physical science, and chemistry. While in college I was a teaching intern for IU medical sciences program, and my first job out of college was with Teach for America. I worked 11 years as a professional scientist, then returned to school to earn a Master's degree in Pharmaceutical Science. I am currently working on my second Master's in Medical Microbiology, and have been working part time as a graduate teaching assistant for the past 2 years at the University of Florida.


How did you get started teaching?

My first teaching experience was as an Undergraduate Teaching Intern for Indiana University, helping teach human physiology laboratory sessions.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with high school students in under-resourced schools, undergraduate students, and adult learners at the master's degree level.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

A good teacher is flexible, and can adapt to your learning style. Learning science is sometimes like learning a foreign language, and it often takes more than one way of explaining a concept for it to stick. A good teacher will recognize what works best for you, and will bring you with them approaching a concept from a variety of perspectives.
