Doctoral graduate gives fun, wide-ranging biology lessons online or in El Paso to learners from middle school to college levels

I am a recent doctoral graduate of UTEP (Ph.D. in Pathobiology), giving biology lessons to anyone aged 13 to 113. My lessons focus on integration of new information with familiar concepts and are fueled by my enthusiasm and passion for my subject!

I believe that education and knowledge should be accessible to everyone! My rates are $15.00/hr, or $20.00/hr if I come to you.

I teach biology, cell biology, genetics, physiology, microbiology. Lessons are available for the following levels: junior high / middle school, sophomore, junior, senior, college, adult education
I give lessons in person at my home, the student's home or meeting in public locations.
I give lessons by webcam.

Dr. Wells is brilliant, a dedicated instructor with a genuine passion for knowledge. With her help I was able to be the teachers favorite student in all of my college science courses last year. I couldn't recommend her any stronger.

German

I have known Claire for over five years. She did a rotation in my laboratory and worked as a Teaching Assistant under my direction. Claire was beloved by all the students she directed. Her most outstanding characteristic was her ability to simplify difficult complex subjects, making them fully comprehensible for students, even those with insufficient background knowledge of the field. Claire has excellent communication skills and has a caring but relaxed
personality. I highly recommend her as one of the most outstanding teaching assistants I have ever directed.

Claire's Experience

I have been a Ph.D. teaching assistant at UTEP for the past 5.5 years, and have taught about 500 students in three different lab courses. My students have gone on to attain their undergraduate degrees, and I have even presented some of their work at professional conferences!
