Biologist and philosopher, with experience in research as well as in undergraduate and graduate teaching (in particular ecology and philosophy of science). I offer support for learning at all educational levels, from elementary school to university. My approach to teaching / learning is maieutics, ie the Socratic method based on a dialogue (written or oral, as appropriate) that includes questions whose response process serves as guide for the learning process. My motto is that learning involves understanding.
Among the tools I use to facilitate comprehension are explanations, analogies and solving practical problems, always adapted to the individual student.
My experience as a teacher centers primarily on undergraduate education, but I have also given graduate courses and informal classes (conversation in English). I have also tutored final research works for students in the natural sciences, another way of teaching.
My strengths as a teacher come from my complex background in the sciences and humanities. Specifically, I have taught the following courses:
Philosophy of Science (undergraduate and graduate)
Philosophy of Environmental Sciences (undergraduate)
Research Methodology (undergraduate and graduate)
Techniques for the Analysis of Carnivore Diet (graduate)
Conversation in English (informal high-school level)
While studying biology, I assisted in the following classes:
Embryology (current developmental biology)
Anatomy and Human Physiology
