This ongoing introduction-level class runs like a semester class, but with the flexibility and convenience of an ongoing subscription based class. This class is ideal for teens who are interested in learning about how the body works. Classes meet once per week. Topics rotate every semester (fall, winter and spring semesters). Each class is independent of others. No experience in anatomy or science needed. 𝘾𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙙𝙚𝙨𝙞𝙜𝙣𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙤 𝙨𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙠 𝙘𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙤𝙨𝙞𝙩𝙮… 𝙇𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙣𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙟𝙪𝙢𝙥 𝙞𝙣 𝙖𝙩 𝙖𝙣𝙮 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚! 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁...
My experience in teaching started when I was in high school as a math and ESL tutor. I majored in life sciences at Queen’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.
