Experienced anatomy and microbiology instructor offers tutoring and group sessions in Winnipeg

Methodology

I believe that as a teacher/instructor it is my job to guide the process of learning in a structured yet fun and applicable manner. If my students cannot relate to the material they are not going to retain the information, and so I am a firm believer in making lessons relatable and using examples that can be applied to daily life. I also believe in the application of dynamic teaching methods according to a student's individual needs and interests. Biology is an incredibly interesting and exciting field if taught well, and it is my job to ensure my students develop a passion for learning the material in an effective way.

Background

I received my PhD in 2017 from the University of Manitoba, department of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases. I have instructed many different classes (Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology, Cell Biology), for more than 7 years at the University of Winnipeg in the department of Biology. I was also the Biology expert for Princeton Review MCAT courses in Winnipeg prior to moving to Uganda. I spent the past three years in Uganda setting up my Canadian charity, Bridging Villages which helps kids go to high school and provides safe housing for women while they complete non-traditional skills training at our facility. I am passionate about helping others achieve their highest potential and, now that I am back home in Canada, I feel that teaching is one of the best ways to achieve this.

Topic: HIV

RESEARCH INTERESTS: My research interests are currently focused on microbiology as it
applies to the larger scope of global health. I have a specific interest in the
unique nature of mucosal tissues and how these systems, that are constantly in
flux, affect overall immune functions at innate barriers of defense. My research
experience has examined these intricate relationships within the female genital
tract as it pertains to HIV acquisition and identifying potential correlates of
protection for use in a female-controlled microbicide. My long-term research
goals, include working within a multi-disciplinary team to effectively reduce the
burden of disease that emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases are
currently having within some of the most vulnerable populations in the world.
