I am a professional scientist and I also have a law degree and I am a licensed attorney in WA State. Zoology was my major in college as I had previously aspired to go to veterinary school. After deciding that that career path was not really for me, I worked several years as a biologist for various agencies. I then went on to law school and am looking forward to begin practicing environmental law in the future. I taught high school kids in Stockton, CA for a year after graduating from undergrad and enjoyed working with students. I have a current emergency teaching credential. I have volunteered with high school students more recently helping students that are interested in pursuing careers in a legal/law enforcement realm prepare for a mock trial (a fictional trial where students must advocate for their clients). I have also volunteered with various mentoring programs over the years and enjoy talking with students and helping them to achieve their best.I have a background in biology, but am also good with proof reading essays and other such material as my legal background has provided me with extensive writing experience. I am also a believer in balancing time and managing study skills over a period of time rather than cramming at the last minute for an exam. If I sound like someone that can help you, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Sociology

While serving as a Teaching Assistant to my sociology professor in college, I gained invaluable experience grading college-level papers and exams. I believe I can help students write better sociology papers and ensure their research methods are adequate.

Study Skills

As a long-time student myself, I have acquired various techniques and study skills to make learning more efficient and less time consuming. I realize that people learn differently and will try to find out what works best for each individual student. I have taken various study skill courses in college while I was figuring out what worked best for me and can impart that knowledge with my students.

Zoology

I have a Bachelor of Science in Zoology from UC Davis. I have tutored high school students for several years in this subject. I also previously taught high school students in various subjects, including science.
