"I am a retired genetic engineer, having worked in the pharmaceutical/biotech industry all my professional career. I have a solid background in the biomedical sciences (PhD in Physiology-Biophysics, Two MS degrees in Microbiology and in Biological Sciences, and a BS in both Biology and Chemistry). Because of my experience teaching in college adjunct positions and in private tutoring, I have learned how important it is not just to help students learn the basics, but students also need to learn how to process the information they have learned, and be able to apply the information to their daily tasks (e.g., in a job for a nurse, what does this EKG tell me about this patient's heart and what is my next step in handling a situation). The application approach helps students demonstrate how much they have learned and how to utilize their own creativity.

I like to engage the students, making learning for them an enjoyable experience. I encourage communication and constant feedbacks, not just from the students, but also from the parents so I can adjust my lesson plan accordingly, benefiting the student is my ultimate goal.

I have a broad experience in teaching/tutoring as briefly described below: I have tutored 1) algebra and geometry to high school students in their preparations for the SAT, and 2) Chinese to young children and adults. I also have taught college level classes in many different subjects (e.g., human anatomy and physiology, genetics, microbiology, cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry…etc.). Furthermore, on a bigger scale, I organized and started a new genetic engineering college level course for Moravian College and also taught an immunology class at Lehigh University. In addition to teaching, I have provided exam questions for the MCAT and prepared excerpts/summaries from medical journal articles for pharmaceutical corp" less...
