I am a science teacher, who presently teaches middle school science, but also has endorsements in high school chemistry and biology. As a teacher, I am passionate and enthusiastic about science and teaching. It is my personal teaching philosophy that all students are capable of learning science, but they learn it in their own way and at their own pace. It is my responsibility, as a teaching professional, to discover how my students learn and present science in such a way that meets the needs of each student.

I am willing to tutor students in middle school science, middle school math,and, high school biology, botany, anatomy, and physiology, among other high school science subjects. I have a proven track record of presenting scientific concepts in a manner that can be easily grasped by students. I will tutor your student at the local library, at the local coffee shop or in your home. I prefer to tutor students twice a week in order to maximize reinforcement of the science concepts. I also will meet with students for reviews before assessments. I will endeavor to be flexible to help each student be successful.

In addition, I am a tutor at Waubonsee Community College. I tutor 100 level and 200 level biology courses. Therefore, I am qualified and available to help students who are struggling with 1st or 2nd year college biology .

I am also a former GED instructor. As a result I can tutor students in order to prepare them for the GED Exam.
