Want to work with a proven educator with 20 years of educational experience? I'm the person for you. With an undergraduate degree in Biology and Environmental Science and Master's Degree in Secondary Science Education, I have the skill set to help you succeed. During my 20 years of educational experience I have had the opportunity to conduct research in Africa and Central and South America. I have worked in some of the largest districts in Florida as a science teacher with 10 years of AP Biology and AP Environmental Science experience as well as having taught 5th grade through 12th grade science. I am a seasoned professional with over 10 years of tutoring experience in ASVAB, SAT, ACT, Biology, Chemistry, Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra 2. I look forward to working with you in the future.
I have tutored Algebra for 7 years at the Sylvan Learning Center in Miami Lakes. During my time at Sylvan, I was the "go to" advanced math tutor taking on all accelerated Algebra tutoring sessions. I also taught night school for three years at Hialeah-Miami Lakes Senior High to help prepare ESOL students for the SAT Math Exam focusing on their Algebra skills. I have a tremendous amount of experience working with math students and love Algebra!
I have a BS degree in Biology and Environmental Science and have conducted biological research in Central America, South America, and Africa. I have taught a wide range of students in Biology ranging from Biology 1 to Biology Honors Gifted to AP Biology to Marine Biology. My former students have competed in numerous science academic competitions at the local, state and national levels.
I have tutored elementary math for seven years at Slyvan Learning where I would work with up to three students at the same time helping them enhance their basic computational skills. I have over twelve years experience tutoring math to all levels of students ranging from elementary to high school. I have a BS degree in Biology and an MS in Secondary Science Education and have always greatly enjoyed working with younger students in math and seeing their confidence increase as they gain more and more skills.
I lived and worked in Tegucigalpa, Honduras and Fusagasuga, Colombia where I worked in bilingual schools teaching science and English. As someone without a working knowledge of a foreign language when I moved to Honduras and Colombia, I understand what is needed to learn a new language.
I have been involved in science education for 20 years, having taught a wide range of subjects from 5th grade to 12th grade. Before returning to work in M-DCPS in January, I worked for a national consulting company to help transform science education in various states around the country. I have taught SAT prep classes at Sylvan Learning as well as working as a private SAT Math tutor.
