Certified teacher from Colorado specializing in biology but also knowledgable about other sciences and math.

Methodology

I am a certified teacher who has 11 years of experience as an instructor at University of Phoenix Online. I work mainly with adult students but have had experience communicating with middle school and high school students. I have communicated mainly by online forum but have had experience with real time online education via Blackboard. I am most knowledgeable in biology and other sciences.

Background

I have been teaching online for 11 years with University of Phoenix. Courses at University of Phoenix typically run for 5 weeks at a time. Class sizes are usually between 10 and 20 students and I sometimes teach two classes at a time, so I may have charge of up to 40 students at a time. Students who have taken my courses have obtained the necessary credits for medical school, biological science, and environmental science.
