Hello students! I am a Ph.D. in Neuroscience who specializes in protein biochemistry. I have been a faculty member at UT Southwestern Medical Center since 2004. I used to have/run my own laboratory, focusing on changes in protein phosphorylation and its potential role in brain disorders such as schizophrenia, drug addiction and Alzheimer's disease. A few years ago, I became a mother and I chose to close my laboratory and not work full time as a scientist any more. Instead, I now enjoy lectur...
Paula may be great if you are weak in background knowledge or just want to learn for fun but not if you want to get problems done within a certain time frame. We spent a half hour reviewing material that had little relevance to the actual biochemistry problem.

Paula helped me grasp topics that I was having trouble in. She is very versatile with time and always willing to help. If I have future doubts with anything chemistry related, I will be sure to contact her again.

Paula introduced me to Biochemistry and Epigentics, and coached me through the process of beginning independent online research. She has so much knowledge at her command that an hour of her time completely worth the fee.
- Thomas B. from Comanche, TX
She does a very good job at explaining each topic and ensuring that you understand before moving on. Definitely would recommend!
- Seth W. from West Bloomfield, MI
Paula is very knowledgeable in biochemistry. She helped me tremendously with some biochem concepts and by going over some problems she also pinpointed my weak/strong areas. She seems to be a very responsible and experienced tutor, and I would definitely have more lessons with her in the future.
- Lixin J. from Aston, PA
Paula has taught me concepts of stoichiometry. She has also helped me to figure out how to solve chemistry problems by applying these. Because she speaks Spanish, I could have a class in my native language, which facilitated my understanding. She is a knowledgeable professor and very patient. I really recommend her.

Paula explained gated channels in a very clear and precise way. i finally understand how the membrane channels work. she only took 5 minutes to explain. She makes learning enjoyable.

Dr. U. is a very good teacher. Her teaching style involves establishing a framework first and then slowly building on it to make sure all the material is understandable. I have not come across a topic in Biochem that Dr. U. did not know. Highly recommend her as a biochemistry tutor.
- Sabrina S. from Plano, TX
Paula retaught me various concepts about Chemistry in a review activity for class. She was very thorough in her explanations, and ensured that I understood everything before we moved from one area to another. It was very helpful and I feel much more confident about the units we covered.
- Isabel G. from Plano, TX
She does not only teach but also takes time to make the student realize their potential. She tests you too and points out deficiencies in the response to make you well grounded.
- Akoaya E. from Spring, TX
Paula helped me immensely during my summer chemistry 2 course. She was very easy to reach and very flexible with setting up tutoring hours. Being very proficient in chemistry, Paula was able to help me review and retain a lot of material over a short amount of time.
