Hi! I graduated magna cum laude with a BS in Ecology. Since graduating I have realized just how much I love sharing information with others and getting everyone else excited about learning.
I am a hard working and dedicated individual who believes every subject can be fun and easy to learn, if it's presented correctly. I understand everyone has a different learning style and I will do everything I can to find out what works best for you.
For the past few years I have been working in education for zoos and aquariums. Through these positions I have gained lots of experience teaching people of all ages, and have come to love seeing that "Aha!" moment on faces. One of the most rewarding experiences you can have in life is seeing the exact moment when something that has never made sense before suddenly makes sense to someone.
These positions have also made me an excellent public speaker. All of them required giving presentations, some as short as 15 minutes, some as long as an hour. I was not always so outgoing and comfortable in front of the public, so if this is something you struggle with I have plenty of tips to share!
Learning is a life long process and I look forward to learning with you!
I have taken several public speaking courses in high school and college, and have been giving public presentations as a job for the past two years at the Texas State Aquarium, Sea World San Diego, and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The speeches range from 15 minutes to 1 hour and are given to a variety of age groups and different groups sizes from only a few to almost 1,000. These jobs have given me experience writing and developing different presentations and the ability to quickly modify speeches based on the type and size of the audience.
During the past three years I have worked at the Texas State Aquarium, Sea World San Diego, and am currently working at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. While working at these facilities it was my responsibility to teach people about animal characteristics and classification along with their behaviors. In addition, I have taken several specialized biology college courses dealing with specific animals including Ornithology, Entomology, Limnology, and Animal Behavior.
