I have a Master's degree in Earth and Planetary Sciences and because of the nature of my research (paleoecology) I am also very familiar with ecology and biology. I have been commended as an exceptional writer by both my undergraduate professors and my graduate advisors. Throughout my undergraduate I worked as a rock climbing instructor and as a tutor, including working with one girl who had a severe visual impairment, and as a graduate student I taught lab sections for undergraduate classes and worked with students individually when necessary.
I believe that every student benefits from one-on-one instruction tailored to their specific learning styles and that not all teaching strategies work for each student. Additionally, study habits, organization, and the ability to identify key concepts are just as important as learning the subject concepts. It is important for students to be able to take strategies learned from tutoring and apply them to future studies.
