Hello! I am very happy to be a WyzAnt tutor because I love science and I love teaching others to understand scientific concepts. I've been a teacher in the classroom for the past three years. I am fully credentialed by the states of Florida and California to teach Biology and Chemistry. I have also taught Health, Anatomy & Physiology and College/Career Plan Ahead. In college, I did a pre-med Bachelor's Degree in Human Nutrition because Nutritional Science is my passion and I wanted to be eligible to attend medical school or veterinary school. I did not choose that path, as yet, but pursued teaching instead, which has been vastly rewarding. Some of my favorite times with students have been helping them achieve breakthroughs in their understanding of science through one-on-one tutoring sessions. There is nothing better than seeing that light bulb go off for a student who was confused and frustrated. I think my own passion for and knowledge of science inspires students and allows me to reach them. I will identify you or your child's individual learning style to customize lessons for your/their needs.
Please also note that I worked as an instructor for Apple for a year after college. If you, a friend or family member need any tutoring using Apple/Mac hardware or software, I have been trained by Apple in a special teaching approach that maximizes your ability to use your new-found skills even when no one is around to guide you.
During the last school year, I taught a high school class entitled College & Career Plan Ahead. Lessons included creating an online portfolio, writing and perfecting personal statements, creating résumés and applying to scholarships. I am highly adept at editing and proof reading personal statements and essays, which I have done many times for students, friends and family with much success.
I worked in the Apple retail store for more than a year and became highly proficient in all Mac software and hardware. I began as a sales specialist during which I learned every specification of the machines they carry as well as the software they produce such as iWork, iChat, iPhoto, etc. I was promoted to small device technician and instructor during which I repaired iPad, iPhones and iPods and taught one-on-one and group courses to apple users in hardware and software.
I've learned and used Outlook the last 4 years as a public school teacher. I led support and trainings for groups of new teachers to learn Microsoft Outlook best practices to increase their organization level and productivity within the e-mail system. I trained people how to use Microsoft Outlook when working as an instructor for Apple for 1 year. I've watched and read all webinars on Microsoft Outlook from the Microsoft website.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition from the University of Florida. This past school year, I taught Health Science and designed extensive lessons during which students kept a food diary for a week and analyzed the nutritional content of their diet, what the recommendations are for their age and sex and what changes they need to make. I keep up on current research in the area of human nutrition on a weekly basis.
