As a student in high school, other students would seek my help in all different subjects. They would often comment on how I would make a good teacher. My thoughts usually would sound more like, "NO!!! I never want to be a teacher!"; It's not that I didn't like teaching, I just didn't like trying to tutor a big group of people at one time. Whole group learning involves many other faucets besides just helping someone learn. This is why I love being a tutor of only one or two people at a time. It gives me the chance to work with the individual needs of a student and to relate concepts to those things that interest that student.
Although I've never been employed as a tutor, I've always helped friends and classmates through high school, then later on in college. I earned both my BS and MS in Biology at Georgia Southern University. While completing my education I took courses in botany, wildlife biology, environmental biology, genetics, mammology, and ornithology. I am currently employed as a high school science teacher. I have taught both Biology and Physical Science. I feel this gives me a wide range of science subjects that I am qualified to tutor. I am also working on my PhD in Post-Secondary and Adult Education, in the hopes that I will be able to obtain a position at a technical college or four-year university in the near future.
I look forward to helping you reach your education goals!
