"Hello all! My name is Dan and I am a current Biology graduate student, thesis researcher and TA at Towson University. I have a mixed background in both education and academic research. As an undergrad I majored in Biology at Saint Joseph's University. During this time I was an undergrad research fellow and science outreach instructor. Following Undergrad I completed a teaching fellowship in Philadelphia where I taught High School Biology classes while receiving my M.S. in secondary education with a concentration in Biology.

Currently I am a graduate student at Towson University on a thesis track for a M.S. in Biology. I also conduct research and instruct two freshman labs.

My tutoring pedagogy is this, Biology needs to be taught as much as application as it is content. It is not enough to memorize definitions and formulas to do well in biology past a secondary level. You need to also learn how to think scientifically and understand the basic rules that govern biological organisms. The goal for my students is two fold. The first is to make sure they do well in their high school Biology classes. The second is provide them with the skill set that will let them succeed and standout at a university level.

I have a B.S in Biology, M.S. in secondary education with a Biology concentration. Currently I am a M.S. candidate in Biology at Towson University where I research the impact climate change (specifically changes to hydrology) has on mosquito biodiversity and abundance. I also formerly taught high school AP Biology at a catholic school in Philadelphia." less...
