Welcome to my tutor page. I'm a graduate student in Marine Biology at Texas A&M University: Corpus Christi. At TAMUCC I'm working as a teaching assistant and doing my own research at the university looking at fish in the Caribbean. In the past I worked at The Island School as a research teacher. The Island School is a boarding high school where students from around the world come to The Bahamas and learn through place-based education and the process of asking question and using the scientific method to find answers. The class I taught was centered on performing ecological research on lionfish, an invasive predatory fish in the Caribbean. While performing the experiment the students also read many scientific papers and had in-depth discussions about the marine ecosystems where their experiments were set.

I studied Biology at Northeastern giving me a great skill set for instruction in math and sciences. With these skills and the belief that in order to truly learn something the student must be both challenged and also interested, I will try to bring a fun atmosphere to my tutoring. Throughout college I always helped to tutor my peers and always tried to explain topics in different ways in order to make sure they learned and understood what I was trying to teach them.

I am an avid traveler and have been to places all around the world: Tahiti, Indonesia, England and New Zealand to name just a few. With this wide range of experience and study that is different than your average Biology tutor, I hope to engage students and make them want to learn about the fascinating world around them.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

As a scientist I use algebra nearly everyday in my work. I've also been a teacher to both high school and college students and believe that everyone can do algebra its just about presenting the subject in an interesting and understandable way.

Algebra 2

As a graduate student in Marine Biology I use algebra and other math tools everyday. Throughout my undergraduate and graduate careers I have been formally and informally tutoring and teaching algebra, statistics and other fields of math.

Genetics

I took a genetics course as part of my Biology degree at Northeastern University. My master's research focuses on studying the population genetics of marine fish so I apply what I have learned about genetics every day to help further understand the natural world. I also teach a university level genetics recitation.

Microbiology

I studied Microbiology in University and have since moved on to use some of the theory and techniques in my own research as well as having taught a college level Microbiology lab section.

Organic Chemistry

I took both Organic Chemistry 1 and 2 during college and achieved A's in both classes.
