Passionate Science Expert Who Inspires and Helps You Succeed

I am a molecular cell biologist with a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology from Arizona State University. I have 18+ years teaching science to all ages including high school and adults at the college level. My graduate work focused on energy regulation in muscle of humans and I currently teach AP Biology at the high school level and introduction to biology for majors at the college level. I know I can help you reach your educational goals with my experience educating multiple types of stude... [more]
