I would have to say that all of my education since grade school
has focused on math
. I went to Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions in Houston, Texas. It was there that I really found my niche in both science and math, where AP Physics
II and AP Calculus
were my favorites. I later went to Howard University, in Washington, D.C
., where I majored in Biology
, but I later discovered that I didn't quite satiate my curiosity for science. After college, I went to school part-time, at the University of Houston. While there, I completed several classes, such as Biochemistry
I, Biochemistry II, Endocrinology and Human Physiology
Soon after, I was presented with the opportunity to teach at a local charter school, here in Houston. I first taught Chemistry
, as a 10th grade long-term substitute and was later asked to stay to teach 9th grade Algebra
. I love both subjects, so I felt that it was very rewarding in many ways. While teaching, I also focused on the various learning styles of my students and played upon that constantly. I have set a new goal to continue to teach until I retire.
I received a Masters of Arts in Biotechnology, on October 17, 2012, from Columbia University in the City of New York. While there, I continued to fulfill my love for the sciences and took several more science classes, such as Developmental Biology, Neurobiology II, and Molecular Pharmacology
. After completing my last semester, at Columbia, I found that I have taken nearly thirty science classes at both the undergraduate and graduate level. This allowed me to teach as an adjunct faculty, in the Biology department, at a local community college. I taught Anatomy
courses and Nutrition
. I currently serve as a full-time science teacher for a local private high school.
While teaching, I wish to translate my love for both science and math to my students. After learning first-hand from my high school Physics teacher, a student’s first introduction to a subject can make a strong impression on whether or not they like the subject, for the rest of their life. I would like to help make a positive lasting impression on many students and even adults that I tutor. I would like to show them that both science and math can be very enjoyable, if one is to put enough work into it. I would love to accomplish this goal with you or your child.
