I am an ecological designer working to bridge the gap between science and design. I have expertise in environmental studies (both social and science topics), ecological systems, plant biology, and urban and lanscape design and planning.
I am currently researching and writing the final parts of my master's thesis, so I am constantly engaged in asking questions, and seeking answers. I find that this curiosity is essential when helping others to understand the subjects that I am interested in, and I am genuinely excited about the opportunity to get students engaged in thinking about ecological sciences.
Depending on the topic, I like to start out by helping the student to understand the topics we are going to cover in context. We start by asking the basic question "why does this matter?" and answer it by identifying the different jobs and research fields that these topics might be relevant in. We then move on to putting together a personalized tutoring curriculum based on three things: 1) The requirements of the class the student is enrolled in, 2) A standard educational guide specific to the topic of interest, and 3) Necessary elements for understanding and engaging with the subject matter based on my personal experiences and interactions with the topic throughout my education and professional life.
I will ensure that the student succeeds within their potentials in the classroom, and leaves the class with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the subject matter.
