I have always loved teaching. I tutored while in undergraduate and graduate school and have continued to do it because I truly enjoy working with students.
My favorite areas to tutor are Genetics, Biology, AP Biology and general sciences at all levels. I have a Bachelor of Science and a Masters degree in Genetics. I have tutored over a dozen students from middle school through high school in biology and AP biology. In my previous position as a faculty member at the University of Texas I taught for the UT Genetic Counseling program.
In addition to the sciences, I have worked with elementary, middle and high school students on general homework help, writing skills and assignments and test prep.
In addition to my tutoring experience, I have an a background in special education. I've taken coursework and interned for the Lovaas Institute for Applied Behavioral Analysis in Minneapolis, Minnesota before going on to graduate school. During and after grad school I've worked and volunteered with children with special needs teaching classes in everything from bicycle riding to more traditional reading and writing skills. This has honed my teaching skills and given me perspective on multiple teaching methods.
Every student brings different skills to the table and it is important to utilize their skills in order to build the knowledge base necessary grow as a student.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you or the student in your life achieve their goals.
I have both undergraduate and graduate degrees in the biological sciences, with a focus in genetics. I have tutored over a dozen students from middle school through high school in biology and AP biology.
I have a Masters degree in Medical Genetics and currently practice as a Genetic Counselor full time. I have extensive undergraduate and graduate coursework in both clinical and molecular genetics. In my previous position as a faculty member at the University of Texas I taught for the UT Genetic Counseling program.
I have extensive experience reading/writing all levels of papers from high school essays to undergrad and graduate school theses. I worked in the writing center at my college library and have since published 6 papers in peer reviewed scientific journals. I'm happy to help tailor your writing to the topic and needs of your class.
In addition to specific subject tutoring, I am very organized and able to help students focus their energy on how to most efficiently finish tasks. One of the challenges I see to students who struggle with study skills is the inability to prioritize and complete individual tasks. By breaking down homework and studying into manageable pieces, and encouraging the use of calendars, task lists and other tools, I help students take charge of their coursework and succeed. I have helped students in the past with study skills, ranging from elementary to high school students.
