I love science and I want to help you love it too! Before becoming a high school science teacher (certified for all high school science subjects-including AP and SAT/ACT prep) I was a research biochemist for 11 years. I bring that passion and real world experience into my classroom and into your student's world.
Due to the nature of science, I can help with all middle school science and math as well as algebra and geometry. I have a MEd in secondary Education with an emphasis in gifted education. I am fully capable of delivering science and math content through a variety of method. Scientific literacy is one of the key skills for the 21st century!
My college major was cell and molecular biology. After college I worked as a research biochemist for 11 years for a non-profit, two university based health science centers, one small biotech company and a small pharmaceutical company. My primary responsibilities at all of these jobs was PCR and genomics design and manufacturing of genetic based tests. I am published in several leading peer-reviewed journals.
