I have a broad foundation in the sciences, studying all three major fields (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics) in my pre-med course of study. The fact that I have such a broad based knowledge of the sciences makes it easy for me to teach a variety of subjects with proficiency. In addition to direct instruction, my teaching style incorporates activities that illustrate the concept at hand.
I am currently certified in the State of California in Biological Sciences. I also hold two certificates from the State of Texas. These are: 1. Life Science. 2. Composite Science. Due to these certificates, I am NCLB authorized to teach Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. In terms of my education, I earned a Masters in Education from the University of the Incarnate Word and also a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (pre-med track) from Texas A&M University.
I have eight years of experience teaching biology, physics, and chemistry. I feel that I connect with students by not being aloof and by communicating with them as young adults. I help students understand concepts by leading them through the logical framework that surrounds the concept. This is accomplished through questioning students to assess their current level of knowledge and once this is established, moving forward from there.
Thank you for considering me as tutor for your child.
