Want to learn more about a facet of science with higher intensity? I am developing a series of courses for adults that range in science content from theory to applied science.
These courses will be small classes of 8-10 people. I will provide course materials as well as one on one instruction through ZOOM conferencing. Materials will include power points, publications, simulations, and multimedia. Each course is over 2 weeks for 10 sessions, 1 hour each – 5 days each week. Cost is $50 per course.
I am a certified teacher who has 5 years high school experience and 3 years university teaching experience. I am a published scientist in breast cancer research and have worked in industry science. Whether you want a referesher course or want to learn brand new things, come learn with me!
Course examples are below…
