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.
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.
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.
I took a genetics course as part of my Biology degree at Northeastern University. I am now enrolled as a masters student in Marine Biology at Texas A&M University: Corpus Christi where I will be using genetics in my thesis.
I recently completed a Microbiology course which included a lab and independent experiment and received a B+.
I took both Organic Chemistry 1 and 2 during college and achieved A's in both classes.
