"I've taught at the college level for nearly 50 years, which makes me not just old but also highly experienced.

The one I'm proudest of is as one of Princeton Review's 300 Best Professors, a national ranking they did in 2012. What I treasure more...

"I've taught at the college level for nearly 50 years, which makes me not just old but also highly experienced. My former students rate me as effective not just as a tutor but also as a teacher and research supervisor. I have earned many teaching awards, all unsolicited. The one I'm proudest of is as one of Princeton Review's 300 Best Professors, a national ranking they did in 2012. What I treasure about tutoring is that aha moment that a student experiences when something unfamiliar or previously unfathomable suddenly just clicks.

I taught at Oberlin College for 34 years in the following subjects: general biology, organismal biology, cell biology, developmental biology, molecular genetics, epigenetics, histology, and bioethics. Prior to that, I also taught general zoology, entomology, biological control, insect ecology, and medical entomology.

Rather than teaching to the test, I seek to train students in reasoning and logic. I do not answer questions, I ask hard ones and support you as you discover the answers." less...
