I love to teach! I have a passion for science and seek to make it easy to understand as well as fun to learn. I look at teaching science as being like a translator. If you break down initially dense and confusing concepts into relatable terms then science subjects are not nearly as daunting!
I will work with students on homework, and studying for tests. I also believe that a foundation of good study skills, effective note taking and test taking skills are crucial for science learning. I create study guides for anticipated exam questions to bring to lessons, use a lot of diagrams that I make myself to supplement my lessons and illustrate key concepts. I also work with students on how to effectively find the right answer from the given information by themselves instead of just providing answers.
I have previously created student study groups to help decipher study guides in general college chemistry, and have tutored in general college biology. I have a background in inorganic and organic chemistry, and cellular/molecular/developmental biology including genetics.
