Ph.D. in Biology with 15+ years of didactic experience at high school and College levels.

Methodology

The freedom to explore the living world around us is what makes biology exiting. Inspired by those before me and their experiences, I pursued a research career, and now I wish to share my experience with others. As a teacher, I provide my students with the analytical skills used in the sciences, but that can be readily applied to everyday life.

The lecture classroom is usually just a presentation of facts. This environment allows teachers to present the background information of a particular discipline, although much of the students find hard to put in context such concepts. Here is were the integrative approach is used.
