Brief Biographical Sketch:

I have a Ph. D in Molecular Cellular Physiology from University of California Davis. During my Ph. D I was especially interested in teacher training programs and to cater teaching styles to student learning styles. Now, I am using the skills learned there to now teach students to increase learning efficiency by enhancing their note-taking skills, reading speed, getting the most out of class as well as budgeting their time in way that is optimal for their success.
