UBC M.Sc graduate and current university instructor that can tutor highschool and university biology courses in Vancouver (genetics, cell biology, anatomy and physiology, first year biology)

Methodology

After teaching over 1000 university students, I have become familiar with different types of learners. I will adapt the lesson plans to fit your learning style. Each class is different and the contents of the class is determined by you. For example, some students want me to spend the class time explaining specific concepts. Other students ask me develop a study plan for them and help them stick to the plan. Everything is up to you!

Background

I am currently a university instructor for first year biology, upper year genetics, and human anatomy and physiology. Before becoming an instructor, I was a teaching assistant at UBC for two years.
I can help you with the following courses at UBC:
Biol 111
Biol 121
Biol 140
