I'm an ex-journalist and scientist in Fort Myers, FL, who teaches all aspects of Biology and Microbiology at the college-level, and have tutored many students to successful AP Biology test results. I ask and explain questions of my students to find their level and help them move forward to their desired understanding of the subject. I also coach students on studying and test-taking strategies.
I have been giving lessons in informal settings for more than a decade, and have more than a year and a half of teaching experience at the college level with classes between 20 and 35 students, including laboratory instruction. I've been tutoring students in biology and microbiology for about a year, successfully helping more than five students. Nearly all of my tutoring students have succeeded in improving their course grades or achieving their desired standardized test scores (including 4s and 5s on the AP Biology exam).
