I have a Master's degree and a PhD in anthropology with a focus on physical anthropology, which is the study of human biology within an anthropological context. I also have an Associate's degree in animal health technology, and 11 years experience working with veterinarians in various medical contexts including emergency medicine, large animal, exotic animal medicine, and as a teacher for a veterinary assistant program. I have worked for the past 19 years analyzing human skeletal and mummified remains from both archaeological and forensic contexts. I have 20 years of teaching experience working with students from underrepresented communities.
Experience: 20 years
I have 17 years of experience teaching students in the subject of human evolution, and a total of 20 years of teaching experience working with students from various backgrounds in other challenging subjects, such as anatomy and physiology. My expertise is in physical anthropology (I have a Master's degree and PhD in anthropology focusing on physical anthropology) and I have been teaching specifically the subject of human evolution since I began teaching. I can help you to understand this very difficult subject in a manner that will simplify even the most complex material. My teaching experience includes students of all levels from varied educational backgrounds. I can help you to understand the mechanisms of evolution (natural selection, gene flow, mutation, and genetic drift), the ever difficult subject of population genetics (that is, Hardy-Weinberg and why we care), the fossil record, human variation, and more. I can help with any subject related to human evolution. Students can select a specific topic to focus on or a range of topics. I will work with you regardless of your current level of understanding. You tell me your level and what you need to learn, and we can work out a lesson plan to meet your educational goals. I can make myself available via Skype, WhatsApp, or email to give you a test lesson for 15 minutes so that you can see my style of teaching, and determine whether or not it is a good fit for you! I am very flexible on my availability; just contact me in advance to book a lesson! I look forward to working with you.
