I am a student with graduate level experience working toward my PhD in cellular biology. I have bachelor's of science degrees in both cellular biology and psychology, and I was awarded the Grace Thomas Award for outstanding work in cellular biology from the University of Georgia. I currently study traumatic brain injury (TBI) at the University of South Florida as a research assistant. I have worked in nine different laboratories throughout my academic career, giving me hands-on experience in cellular biology, genetics, biochemistry, and neuroscience. I hope to help students understand science by taking complicated subject matter and distilling it into plain English. I want to see every student succeed and have fun in their studies!
Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is to treat every student with respect, and to provide the most clear-cut resources to fit the subject matter and needs of the individual student.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a first session with students, we would identify areas that need the most attention, and we would get to the root of why the subject matter might not be well understood.
