If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I have taught various science courses, which include Biology, Chemistry, Physical Science, and Physics for ten years. Nine of those years were completed at a high school in an urban school district, where I taught struggling students, and the last year was completed at a high school in the Mississippi Delta. I also taught an intensive reading course to struggling high school readers for two years, as well as an ACT Prep class for one year. I possess teaching certifications in reading specialist, biology, and chemistry.

I believe reading comprehension and critical thinking skills are the keys to academic success in school. I teach my students reading and critical thinking strategies to help them approach assignments in any subject with confidence. I have a deep desire to help students be academically successful, which I believe will increase their self-confidence. Most importantly, I understand that not all students learn at the same pace and am patient with my students.

I understand that Mississippi high school students must pass several subject area tests in order to graduate from a Mississippi Public School, and I am eager to help them ace the Biology I Subject Area Test. I look forward to meeting and helping you or your student!
