The vast majority of the ACT science test focuses on having students interpret arrays of charts and graphs. There are only 6-8 questions from each of the major areas of science. So, when I work with students, I would help them improve their ability to interpret data since this is where they could potentially most improve their science score.
I love biology and have a biolgogy major with a 4.0 GPA. The study of botany was part of this course. I also took an online course through Schoolcraft college in starting a greenhouse/nursery business and have received certification for opening my own nursery. My backyard is a certified backyard habitat for wildlife. During my first year of teaching I taught a zoology/botany course before it was removed from the curriculum. I could easily help someone be successful in this course.
Subjects taught include metrics, conversions, the periodic table, electron configurations, quantum mechanics, ionic and covalent bonds, naming compounds and writing formulas, stoichiometry (grams, moles, atoms), kinetic molecular theory, states of matter, gas laws, acids and bases, LeChatlier's Principle, and Thermochemistry.
I am not a professional musician but played flute from grades 4-12. I also currently play flute with the Novi Concert Band and have played with concert bands for about 12 years. I am able to work with young musicians who wish to improve their abilities.
I have a biology major with a 4.0 GPA in my biology courses. My introductory biology course included genetics as a topic. I also took a specific biology course called Genetics at Madonna Univeristy and earned an A in that as well. During my first year of teaching I taught genetics to students in basic and advanced biology.
Topics taught include the geology and the rock cycle, plate tectonics, the hydrosphere, the atmosphere, energy, radioactive decay, oceanography, and weather.
As a chemistry major at UM-Dearborn, I took organic chemistry during my sophomore year. I enjoyed all the memorization and predicting of reactions and reaction types. I always strove to get the high score in the class. I am sure I could help college students to better understand the material and help them to study for tests.
I have been an avid seamstress since I was in the 9th grade. During that year I took a course at Singer's, which used to be located at Wonderland and I have stopped since. Currently, sewn items are part of my inventory for craft shows. I would enjoy teaching someone how to make clothes or crafts.
I am a certified secondary teacher of science and math. I have taught both middle school and high school for 20 years. While at the middle school, I was assistant coordinator and then coordinator of a special mentoring program for at-risk youth. In that program we taught the students organizational and study skills. The organizational skills included keeping a special folder for work done and new work for each academic class. Study skills included things like taking notes, finding main ideas, use of color, practicing, and making flashcards.
I have a major in biology with a 4.0GPA in all of my biology courses. Zoology was included in my general biology course. I love the study of life and also taught a zoology/botany course to high school students during my first year of teaching. It was then removed from the curriculum. I also taught a simplified version of zoology and botany to 7th grade students when I taught life science.
