Biology professor with two Master's degrees and some doctoral credits looking for students for one on one tutoring. Meetings are generally for 1 1/2 hours at a mutually convenient time and location. Sessions are meant to be productive, and also relaxed and fun!
I have been teaching college-level biology for more than 20 years, and have been tutoring privately for more than 15 years. I have tutored more than a dozen students privately, and some students have even gone on to medical school! If the students are motivated, they can ace the course for which they are receiving the tutoring!
