Although not required, I do suggest taking the Cracking the Genetic Code Series prior to this one. If your child already knows some basic Genetics and knows how to do simple Punnet squares and knows how to do a Pedigree chart then this series will be just perfect. Students do NOT need to purchase fruit flies but it could be interesting for them to have a look at them up close. Using a jar and media, students can observe their traits with a magnifying glass and learn to determine sex. It is...
My goal is to have students dive into understanding genetics and yearn to learn more about what their own futures hold.
I am a Secondary Certified Teacher with a lifetime certification in Education. My major is Biology and my minor is Art. I've been teaching Health, General Science, Physical Science, Chemistry, Biology, Advanced Biology for over thirty-five years to middle and high school students worldwide. I've taught in public, private, Montessori, and home school groups. I am CPR certified. I was a moderator of the annual Health and Science Fair for several schools. With this expertise, I feel I am more than qualified to tutor your child. I enjoy teaching. I also took have taken supplemental courses; such as Vital Signs: Understanding What the Body Is Telling Us (from the University of Pennsylvania in 2018) and Drugs, drug use, drug policy and health (from the University of Geneva in 2020) on Coursera.org.

I may assign coloring sheets and worksheets to enhance the learning experience.
Materials: Pipe cleaners (assorted colors) Pencil Color pencils Sketch pad Construction paper Tape Glue stick Optional materials: Purchase a fruit fly kit from a biological supply company. Ex. Carolina Biological Or catch wild fruit flies for observation purposes (empty jars or vials, banana, yeast, alka seltzer, rubber tubing)
I orally assess my students.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Sexing of the fruit flies will use the term vaginal pore and penis. Also, we will review Meiosis that involves the terms sperm and eggs.
We will be using various websites and Google slides that incorporate 3 to 5 minute video to explain and discuss genetic concepts.
Energetic and Engaging!
