Biology Graduate offering online high school/undergraduate tutoring in biology (molecular, cell, microbiology, botany) and (bio)chemistry

Methodology

My teaching method is highly tailored to the needs of the individual student. I recognize that everyone learns differently and I make it my mission to teach each student in a unique and personalized fashion. I am a patient and encouraging teacher that seeks to inspire my students to reach their goals and fulfill their academic potential.

Background

I graduated from the WLU BSc. Biology program (Chemistry minor) with high distinction and have a passion for all things biology. I love to share my knowledge in easy to understand and creative ways. My teaching experience includes private tutoring and teaching assistantships. I also have research experience which has given me a deep understanding of molecular biology and microbiology.
