This is my 14th year of teaching. I'm currently certified to teach high school physics and biology and middle school general science. I have a bachelor's degree in biology and a master's degree in education. I've also worked in medical laboratories and for a biopharmaceutical company doing research and development, but my passion has always been in education.

Over my teaching career I've taught a wide variety of topics from American history to photography to a number of different types of science classes. The majority of my classes have been at the high school level and have been mostly ninth grade introductory physics and twelfth grade physics. I've also taught biology, health and environmental science in high school. Over 99% of my students have successfully passed the science MCAS. I've been tutoring science for a number of years now and have come to enjoy and appreciate the personal time I can spend with just one student.

I'm looking forward to working with you and helping you become more successful in your classes!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biology

I am certified in MA to teach biology to grades 8 through 12. I've been teaching high school science for 14 years. I have a bachelor's of science in biology and a master's degree in education.

Botany

As part of my bachelor of science in biology I was required to take many electives. I chose to take botany as it was required for MA certification. Having passed the MTEL, earned a master's degree in education for curriculum and instruction in science, taught for fourteen years in numerous subjects, including biology and environmental science, I feel I am qualified to tutor botany.

Genetics

As an undergraduate biology major I chose to focus on classes that helped to prepare me for teaching high school science. I was required to take a genetics class and a qualitative genetics class that focused on applications of how genes are expressed and transferred to offspring. I also took an evolution class to further my understanding of genetics from the vantage point of populations. I have also taught biology and environmental science, both having had a genetics component to them.

Physical Science

I was required to take multiple physics and chemistry courses as an undergraduate science major. I am certified in MA to teach physics to grades 8 through 12 and general science to grades 5 through 8. I've been teaching high school science for 14 years. I have a bachelor's of science in biology and a master's degree in education.
