Ph.D., certified teacher with 20 years experience in various fields of science offering tutoring on line.

Methodology

Ph.D., I think I would be best teaching undergrad to graduate level. Teaching by example has been the best way to teach for me. I have a varied background and I lived and worked in 5 countries so I am more than qualified.

Experience

I have been teaching on and off for 20 years. I currently do not have students as I have been busy in the research field of reef study, aquaculture and traditional agriculture ((concealed information)
