I lecture Anatomy and Physiology at a college in Boston and I truly enjoy teaching. I hope to earn my PhD within the next couple of years so that I can teach full time at the university level, and open my own line of research.
Most of my teaching and tutoring experience was gained during graduate school at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I tutored student-athletes in a variety of subjects including Anatomy, Physiology, Exercise Physiology and Statistics. Personally, I found the tutoring experience to be very revealing. Students would come in night after night, in separate sessions, and ask me the same questions. I quickly learned that the professors were simply reading off slides; taking little time to explain difficult mechanisms and concepts. As such, few students were learning the material, and almost all of them needed a tutor to re-explain the material. As a result, I developed the ability to tutor at a pace that matches the students' needs. I truly mean it when I say I take my tutoring seriously, and I do everything I can to help students understand the material!
In my free time you can catch me at a Red Sox game, working out (I love to run), hiking in the mountains or cooking a big meal in the kitchen. I also enjoy doing research when I have the chance, and my personal interests revolve around Exercise Physiology and Biochemistry.
