Education is about the “Ah ha!” moment: the time when you realize you truly understand something you struggled so hard to conceive before. When you are challenged with a difficult concept or subject matter, these moments of understanding are so much more rewarding. I cherish opportunities to help students navigate their way through difficult material so that they can feel confident in their abilities to rise to the next level.
As a teacher for 10+ years, I have extensive experience facilitating these “Ah ha!” moments. I’ve taught seven different types of science, math, and arts literacy to students from all over the world from grade 7 through college. In science, courses I have successfully implemented include chemistry, biology, anatomy and physiology, and physics. I also served as science department head and teacher leader for several years; mentoring other teachers to help them improve their abilities in science education as well. I currently work as a health communicator, translating complex scientific materials for the general public.
In arts literacy, I used the basic principles of language and creative arts to help Brazilian students from ages 12-24 learn to speak and read English. I am also proficient in Spanish and Portuguese and have communicated using these languages in Brazil, Spain, Honduras, and America.
I truly believe all students have the ability to learn. It is important to identify what their learning style is and use this to enhance their skills. Please consider allowing me the opportunity to work with your child so that he/she may also achieve those “Ah ha!” moments.
