Science Tutoring: Open lab

Peer Tutoring for Science Classes


Welcome to Anatomy and Physiology

Please join us for in-person tutoring


Meet Your Tutors


Kimberly Dutton- I have both a BA and a BS from Southern Illinois University and have just completed my first two semesters in the DMS program.   I guess it has taken me 20+ years to figure out what I want to be when I grew up.  It has been challenging going back to college after such a long time away, but it has also been a lot of fun learning to be someone different.  I look forward to meeting you and helping you with Anatomy and Physiology.  

Alisa Miller (Science Lab Coordinator for Life Sciences)- As a student many years ago at Gwinnett Tech, I learned the importance of Open Lab, peer tutoring, active learning, and group study as a means for success in Anatomy and Physiology classes.  What a gift to lead this team of incredible tutors in providing students with the same experience!  We are excited to assist you in your journey as you embark on a career in health care!  See you in Open Lab.

Paige Riggs-I have a background in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) with 20 years as a paramedic.  For the last 3 years, I have been teaching EMS to students to learn the skills needed to enter the workforce.  I have earned an AAS in paramedicine and love teaching A&P.  I am continuing my studies for a BS in Public Health.

Mr. Sheldon Sans-Derm- I have retired from full-time teaching but have felt a large void within myself ever since.  I have come back to GTC to lend support to students and the trusty lab assistants.  I hope to move each student through this rewarding course.  I hope each one of you digests the necessary information and that it all comes out in the end for each of you.  I hope that A&P is pumping through your veins  when you complete this course.

Annette Swain BSRS RT R MR- Just like you, I attended GTC for my AA in the Radiology program and then completed my BS in radiologic sciences with a certificate in MRI at Florida Hospital College.  I enjoy blending creativity with science.  I started by taking photos of people's outsides for 8 years then switching to taking images of their insides for the last 18!  Now I have the privilege of working with you.  

Elisa Ortiz- Hello, I have been a student at GTC since Fall the 2019.  I completed Anatomy & Physiology I and II, as well as Microbiology.  Completing these courses during COVID was challenging, but I am grateful to have made it through these courses successfully! I am starting the nursing program here at GTC in the coming semester.  The other tutors and I are rooting for each and every one of you.  

Katie Summers- Hello, I have been a student at GTC since summer 2020 when I moved from Los Angles to establish my career and education in healthcare as a nurse. I have successfully completed anatomy and physiology along with microbiology and start the nursing program here at Gwinnett Tech this semester and look forward to meeting each of you in Open Lab.

Fall 2022 Announcement

Open Lab is an opportunity for independent study of lab materials in a lab classroom. We encourage students to take advantage of the extra hours in the lab to finish work that you began in your lab class and prepare for the lab exams. Lab assistants will be available to answer lab-related questions.

Lecture materials are best completed with your study partners in the Science Tutoring Center located in 900 1.109 on the Lawrenceville campus or room 327 on the ANF campus.
