Hi I'm Ben and I have been working in science for the past 12 years. My studies have focused on the physical sciences like chemistry and biology but I have a background in other subjects like history and business administration. I realized a love for teaching/tutoring while in completing my undergraduate studies. The first exposure to teaching was when I became a teaching assistant for the large (>200 student) anthropology introduction course. Whether it was leading review sessions or ... [more]
I have a small background in human anatomy and physiology. More of my expertise is in zoological anatomy. That will includes various genera of animals from reptiles/avian to large mammals. I am comfortable tutoring human anatomy and physiology as well.
I have an extensive history with physiology. I started learning about the overall subject in undergraduate and have continued to learn about physiology since. Physiologic processes are somewhat standard across species but I have expertise in animal physiology.
I completed several courses in undergraduate studies related to zoological sciences (zoology, animal behavior, etc). After undergraduate studies, I completed a doctorate in veterinary medicine. My main interests are in animal sciences.
I have detailed experience in the physical anthropology (evolution, primate ecology, etc.) field. My undergraduate major was in anthropology and I continued my studies into primate evolution and ecology while in graduate school. I completed an observational research project at the St. Louis Zoo looking at fleeing behaviors in adult female orangutans.
After completing undergraduate coursework in biochemistry and physics, I obtained a doctorate in veterinary medicine. We received extensive instruction in pharmacology during our didactic and hands-on coursework. After completing my doctorate I also taught Pharmacology at City College Hollywood - Veterinary Technology Program.
