I have a true passion for learning and a zeal for science. I have a PhD in Medical Pharmacology with a training background in cardiovascular and renal physiology and a Masters of Science in Biomedical Sciences. In the recent years, I have discovered my gift and love for teaching. I taught at the University of North Georgia for three years. This past fall, I made the decision to take some personal time to spend with my growing family. I quickly realized how much I missed teaching. I am excited to work with students again using the Varsity Tutors platform.
I believe that the best way to truly understand biology is to apply your course material to every day life. I want to answer the question, "why do I need to learn this?" for you. Enthusiasm is the best tool a teacher can utilize to lead you to success, and I hope I can get you just as excited about your studies as I am! I like to employ a variety of study methods, including case studies, flash cards, and illustrations because I realize we all learn differently. I will be sure to spend enough time with you to determine what methods will lead you to achieve your goals.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. I look forward to studying with you!
