Biology professor now accepting private high school and college students in Orlando

Methodology

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!

Background

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!
