Hi there! My name is Sheila and I'm an experienced science educator, having taught at the middle school, high school, community college, and university levels. I won the UCSB Science Education Outreach Award and the ScienceLine Award for Outstanding Contributions to K-12 Science Education, and was nominated for an Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award. I was also a National Science Foundation Graduate Teaching Fellow. Through my work as an educator, I have been trained in Research for Better Teaching, and Teaching and Learning with Digital Media.
I tutor with patience and enthusiasm, with a focus on the enduring understanding of concepts, incorporating prior knowledge, realizing the relevance of new topics, and overall success in your course. Although I am a scientist, I also have experience helping students in math, reading, and study skills.
Please ask if you have any questions on my tutoring style or capabilities.
