I am a certified high school biology teacher qualified to tutor science, math (through algebra), writing, and SAT prep. I am available in the evenings, on weekends, and over the summer.
------ My science/math/writing background ------
In undergraduate, I majored in biology and graduated as valedictorian of my class. I also have a master's of science degree in oceanography, and graduated with a GPA of 3.9. I have worked as a research scientist on several projects both in the lab and in the field. Through my education and my research experiences, I have attained a strong science content background and understand what working as a scientist is really like.
Math - I have completed math courses through calculus III
Writing - I love writing and my professors have always commented on my writing abilities. As testament, I have completed three written theses and have published two peer-reviewed scientific papers.
------- My teaching knowledge/experience -------
I am a certified teacher and have a master's degree in science teaching.
High school: I am currently working as a high school biology teacher. I have tutored high school students in both biology (including biology SAT II prep) and algebra.
Undergraduate: I have worked as a laboratory instructor for both introductory biology as well as anatomy and physiology. I have also tutored college students in both of these subjects.
Through these teaching experiences, I have learned how important it is to understand students' thinking so that I can figure out how to best help. I have learned to recognize when students have misconceptions, and I know how to explain topics in multiple ways for students with different learning styles.
Thank you for considering me as your tutor!
