Before pursuing a teaching certification in Biology and General Science, I worked as an agricultural research biologist- using my master's degree, which was in Botany. I have recently taught public high school biology, environmental science, and forensics. As teacher, I held study sessions after school to help students prepare for tests, and they were so effective, that students who weren't mine started to attend. I teach by presenting the information in a logical, visual way, so that students can 'see' the concepts. I am very animated, and use many 'memory hooks'. I like 'hands-on' demos, videos, colors, hand motions, chants, ... whatever helps the student to understand and remember the material. This year I have also done 'homebound instruction' for students at the middle and high school level. As your biology tutor, you will do labs and demos in your kitchen. I have two college age children of my own, who are both very artsy and creative. I spend as much time as I can outside - gardening and horseback riding ... or inside sewing, which has been my life-long passion! Please read the comments from a recent sewing student, on her sessions with me.
