I am a graduate from The University of Texas at Austin with a strong liberal arts education. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Geography, and a minor in French. I am particularly skilled and passionate in GIS/spatial data mapping and ecology.
I studied physical and social geography extensively in college. I love teaching about spatial patterns and ecological connections. I taught ecology classes for Elementary and Middle School students for a year in an Environmental Leadership Program in the Texas Hill Country. I have a strong geographic understanding and love making geography more exciting for students.
Geographic Information Systems:
I have taken multiple GIS courses, trained with ESRI online courses, and designed and completed my own spatial statistical analysis project to gain my degree. I understand basic mapping theory, basic ArcGIS processes, and advanced mapping and GIS analyses with ArcMap. I also understand spatial statistics and their application. I completed a GIS internship in Austin, TX and worked on multiple mapping projects for the city.
I spent a semester studying in France and tutored two students while I was there. I have a minor in French from The University of Texas at Austin, so I understand basic and upper level grammar. I am conversationally comfortable and excited to help students become more proficient in the language. My tutoring while in France made me very comfortable making sure any learning barriers are overcome by both the student and myself.
