I am a recent graduate with a bachelor's in both ecology and evolutionary biology and European history. I tutored students while in college and have experience as a teacher's assistant for middle and high school aged students.

I believe tutoring lessons should be enjoyable and efficient, allowing the student to receive aid in a subject while also discovering the answers themselves to promote self confidence. I try to tutor according to the particular student's strengths and appreciate parental input about their child's strengths and possible weaknesses.

Lastly, I believe a positive attitude, friendly demeanor, patience and trust are imperative to teach at the highest level of proficiency, no matter the student.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Swimming

I taught group and private swim lessons within the YMCA for two years and was a lifeguard for about four to five years. While my certs are currently expired, I was trained in CPR, first aid, title 22/first responder and wsi (water safety instructor). I taught everyone from young children to adults.
