I am a bit of a jack-of-all-trades. I have degrees in zoology and medicine, so I have heavy experience in the sciences; however, most of my experiences with mentoring and tutoring have been with children ages 6 to 14. I have worked with children of varying capabilities, and I have always found it is best to individualize teaching to the person. After all, learning is very individualized, and methods that help one person thrive can stunt another. I believe it is best to meet a student where they are and proceed from that point. No person is too far behind to learn, and no person is so advanced that they aren't capable of growing. I also think it is important to try to develop interest in learning, so I try to blend elements from multiple fields and from the student's own hobbies into the process to show applicability and hopefully to have a little fun with the experience. Other areas of interest, in which I have varying levels of skills or experience, include reading, writing, art, nature, and volunteerism. I have worked in food industry, home improvement, personal assistance, the book industry, research assistance, zoo-keeping, photo printing, dog rehabilitation, and medicine. I have volunteered with Girl Scouts, hospice, community clinics, Big Brothers Big Sisters, a school-based mentoring program, a hospital program for troubled kids, and an arts and literature journal. Please contact me if you think I may be able to assist you.
