I'm a professional Biologist of 5 years now at the Philadelphia Water Department. I love the subjects of Biology, Ecology, Cell Biology, Microbiology, Chemistry and other related science courses. These are the courses whose knowledge I utilize everyday as part of my job. I currently have by BS in Biology and am continuing my education seeking a master's in Environmental Engineering. As part of my going back to school for my master's I have had to pick up several more calculus classes and many more engineering classes, so I have a strong knowledge of science and math.
I would be happy to teach any biology course or a variety of math subjects (Geometry, Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus). I know from experience that patience and perseverance are key, and I am willing to help students push passed the road blocks to succeed. A little work at a time and soon you will be where you want to be.
In my professional life I have had to learn how to work together with a team of people from many backgrounds and learn how to design plans of actions and standards of operations to get the facility I work at running smoothly and in pursuit of excellence. It takes more than just head knowledge, but takes the interpersonal know-how and ingenuity to get people working collectively in a single direction with a single purpose. Each day is usually filled with more troubleshooting than just routine tasks. You have to learn flexibility in thinking to constantly create new solutions. These are skills that I bring to the table with working with students, a flexibility in thought and understanding of the goal and how to bring the student there.
I also have had to work professionally with Microsoft Excel and can efficiently teach skills using this software. Once mastered, it is a very effective tool in analyzing and storing a wide range of data.
