Welcome to Science-Matters.org! I started this webpage back in 2011 to help students having difficulty understanding concepts in Biology, Chemistry, Physical Science, Physics and Math.
My Education Background
I earned my bachelor’s degree in the biological sciences from Duquesne University, graduating Magna cum Laude. I went on to earn a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland, College Park focusing on biochemistry and microbiology. Following my graduate degree, I worked at the Cleveland Clinic as a post-doctoral researcher and taught science courses at Lakeland Community College and Lake Erie College in Northeast Ohio. I earned an Ohio Resident Educator license in Chemistry/Physical Science and Biology and taught AP biology, high school chemistry, honors chemistry and physical science (both remedial and honors).
I am currently homeschooling my children (ages 7, 6, 4, 2) and teaching honors biology and genetics courses at a local high school.
