I am a high school teacher, as well as a tutor, and currently teach high school Biology, Earth Science, AP Environmental Science, and ELL classes. In the past I have taught Physical Science and Algebra as well.
As a teacher and tutor, I work with students to ask the right questions, think critically about their environment and community, learn from each other, and gain a greater understanding of the world around them through a variety of methods.
As a tutor, I look at what is happening in your life and where you are having problems. We then work together to develop the best plan for you to be successful. It is important to me that you master the knowledge and are able to relate it to your own life. We make it work together!!
I am a highly qualified teacher and tutor, with a Master of Arts, Education from Claremont Graduate University (Summa Cum Laude), a Master's of Business Administration, Global Business from the University of Redlands (Magna Cum Laude), and a Bachelor of Science, Environmental Science (Honors Program) from the University of California, Riverside. I hold current teaching credentials in four subject areas and am certified by the College Board to teach AP Environmental Science. In addition, I conducted marine biology research in the Turks and Caicos Islands, participated as a a Fulbright Scholar in research in Vietnam, and was selected as 1 of 10 teachers in the United States to participate in the 2013 India Summer Teacher Exchange Program through the U.S. Department of State.
I have spent over 9 years as a private tutor, trainer at various Fortune 500 companies, and a teacher. I hold my students to the highest expectations and use my experiences to work with my students and assist them in "getting it". I help them to comprehend subject material at a deeper cognitive level and relate it to the "real world".
Passionate about education and its possibilities, I provide a real-world approach to teaching and unique methods to engage and motivate students. I am the recipient of a Fulbright-Hayes fellowship, a U.S. Department of State teaching fellowship, the Peter Lincoln Spencer fellowship, an accomplished photographer, and exhibited a photographic essay at UCR, among others.
I have traveled and/or lived in a number of places around the world, including Mexico, Viet Nam, Australia, New Zealand, France, other parts of Europe, England, throughout the United States, and soon India. I am excited about the possibility of working with you and look forward to hearing from you.
