Teaching students is one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever known. Whether teaching to a large classroom or in a small group or in one-to-one sessions, the feeling I get when a student gains understanding of a concept or when a student's grades improve is immensely satisfying. If a student is struggling in school it can affect their entire outlook on life. I have over 15 years' teaching at the University level and have won Outstanding Teacher Awards. I have also taught reading to s... [more]
I have a doctorate in Animal Physiology and have taught a number of animal biology courses at the university level. I am familiar with plant and microbiology for high school and beginning college courses. I have worked with high school students on several areas of biology.
I have taught chemistry to high school and university students and can work with stoichiometry (math) problems which seem to give the most trouble.
I have taught courses in animal physiology and worked in physiology related research, especially with hormones.
I have helped several students prepare for the SAT and critical reading is one of my skills that I use everyday in my job. I scored quite high on the reading part of the SAT and GRE and have tutored students for these in the reading area.
I work on the ASVAB with students by having them work the type of questions found on the test and then going over the correct answers with them to show them how to correct their mistakes.
My undergraduate degree was in Zoology. Since, I have continued to follow developments in zoology while specializing in physiology research.
I have taken three genetics courses in college and have continued to read about research in the field of genetics. I collaborate with geneticists on my own research in physiology.
I have taken multiple nutrition courses in college and read extensively in the field of nutrition. Nutrition affects my own area of research in physiology and I collaborate with nutrition researchers.
I have taken some AFOQT practice tests online and found the questions to be similar to ASVAB and other general knowledge tests with the addition of some block manipulation. I scored well and am confident that I can help students prepare for the test. The math and vocabulary and reading parts are all quite similar to SAT or ACT.
