I am a professional scientist, working as a research microbiologist. I have loved science since I was a small child reading books with pages made of cardboard. I have a master's of public health and a bachelor's of science in biology, both from UNT. I was a math tutor at UNT during undergrad, and loved it. I seek to continue to share my passion for science and math.

My style uses learning devices I developed while in school. I prefer to learn the concept, making connections to other concepts for better information retention.

Algebra 1

I tutored algebra while in undergrad at the University of North Texas. I loved connecting with students and seeing how once the fundamentals were in place how easily they understood everything else.

I would make worksheets for additional practice. My goal is not just rote memorization but thorough understanding of how each concept builds on one another.

Biology

I have a bachelor's degree from the University of North Texas, where I graduated with honors.
I have 5 years experience of microbiology outside of schooling. I have wide and in-depth knowledge of biology with a passion for sharing something I find so fascinating with others.

I am currently a research microbiologist and would love to teach your child how what he/she learns in school will translate to the real world.

Chemistry

While at UNT Denton I obtained a minor in chemistry. I have also worked as a chemistry tech with 3 years experience. To this day, I use concepts from chemistry in my work.

I have experience tutoring chemistry with great success. I explain concepts in ways that students can relate, leaving the jargon at the door.

Chemistry can be exciting and interesting once all the apprehension is stripped away and students see how it relates to their everyday life. This moment is what I love to see and why I enjoy tutoring chemistry.

SAS

I took a graduate level course in school specifically on SAS. I then used SAS in a cross-sectional research study for all the data analysis. I wrote the code for importing data, cleaning data, analyzing data and producing charts, graphs and drawing conclusions.

Study Skills

I worked full time while obtaining my master's degree, knowing and implementing good study skills was paramount to my success.
While in undegrad I was a math tutor through the university; I tutored remedial algebra and helped students learn not only material for the test but HOW to learn and maintain foundation concepts. I was also a private tutor in undergrad for chemistry. These are subjects that require good study skills and students must know how they learn best and apply it to their study habits.
I require every student to take the VARK test so they can learn how they learn and so will I.
