I received my BS (magna cum laude) and MS from Duquesne University - both in Environmental Science and Management. This course of study included extensive work in Biology, affording me a minor in Bio, Chemistry (from basic through Environmental) and Math (from basic algebra through biostatistics). As such, I have a broad range of experience in those 3 fields. Prior to receiving my degrees, I worked in business across several industries, providing me with an in-depth knowledge of most business applications (e.g. Excel, Word).
I currently teach writing, research methods, critical thinking skills and life science at a local college and also at a local university. I am a dedicated teacher and want my students to learn, so I incorporate videos, silly songs, and mnemonics in my teaching, along with whatever else I can think of to help an individual student succeed. Several of my current writing students are not native English speakers, so I am very comfortable helping ESL students. I will work with you to develop study habits, increase your understanding and to clarify your class lessons if needed. I am also willing to work with groups (up to 4 students) at a reduced hourly rate.
