I am a Professional Geologist with a passion for teaching and learning. My field has required me to stay sharp on a variety of subjects, including English and Writing, Math (geometry, trigonometry, algebra, and calculus), and of course, geology and earth sciences. As a licensed California Professional Geologist with nearly eight years’ experience in the fields of Geotechnical Engineering and Engineering Geology, I have a lot of practical experience to share with students contemplating a career in these, or related fields.
I have previously been employed by Sonoma State University as an instructor in the Geology Department, and taught several semesters/sections of the Geology 102 Laboratory. I regularly participate in local high school career days, science fair judging, and I also present geology labs to local schools.
I have the ability to inspire and excite students about their topics of study... I want to find a way to connect you to what you are learning. There is something applicable to everyday life around us to be found in every subject!
I am happy to always offer a first consultation free of charge, to meet you and see if we're a good fit to create the right environment for you to learn.
A Note for Parents:
As a mother of two, I understand how precious your kids are to you, and your desire for education to pave the way to a bright future. I understand the hope to see kids connect with learning in a way that is fulfilling and leaves them with a hunger for more. My approach is not to "teach", but to create an environment in which the student can learn. (Credit for that concept goes to Monty Roberts, "The Horse Whisperer".)
