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
, 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.

1. Vocab, Vocab, Vocab – you can study a million hours, but if you don’t have a good grasp of the vocabulary you are reading, the studying isn’t going to do as much good. Start studying by reviewing all of the bold words in the section or chapter. Make flash
cards, use a flash card app, or if you hate flash cards, just make a list of vocabulary with definitions so that when you are reading...
