Beginner Level
My experience in teaching started when I was in high school as a math and ESL tutor.  I majored in life sciences at Queenโ€™s University in Ontario with a minor in psychology.   I moved to North Carolina and practiced for 5 years as a chiropractor and acupuncturist before starting a family and embarking on a second career as a university instructor.  I have been teaching anatomy & physiology and medical terminology for over 15 years.
