A recent graduate and two-term AmeriCorps member, my passion for the outdoors is solely matched by my drive to explore its scientific intricacies. I believe that through hands-on experience and relatable examples, many scientific or mathematical concepts can easily become less intimidating. Having personally struggled with and overcome the rigid structure of traditional educational methods, I understand the stark importance of alternative teaching approaches for some individuals. I am creative, flexible, and willing to work with you or your student to find their ideal learning environment.
Having graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz's Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department with a Bachelor's degree in Marine Biology, I specialize in the ecology of marine systems. I currently work for the WA Dept. of Ecology's Marine Monitoring Unit, where ongoing research is conducted on Puget Sound sediments and water quality. I hope to continue my development through graduate study at the University of Washington, where I am currently building a rapport with potential advisors.
My respect for teaching stems from my mother, who works as a Resource teacher in an SDC classroom. Her patience and creativity reaches out to each student's unique needs, and she has been an inspiration to me over the years. Through classroom volunteerism and college-level education coursework, I have developed a passion for sharing my enthusiasm for the science of nature. From Physics, to Chemistry, Math and Biology, everything can be related back to the world around us. I believe that through a tangible relationship with these processes, students can take their knowledge to a level that supercedes the memorization of words that will be forgotten with time.
I am a new tutor, hoping to learn and grow alongside you or your student. I am qualified to teach up to High School level science or math, and college-level Biology. I am happy to offer a free consultation, in which we meet to discuss your needs, to decide if I will be a good fit for you.
I studied invertebrate zoology through coursework at UC Santa Cruz. Following this experience, I spent 1 year conducting taxonomic research on marine invertebrates through the WA Dept of Ecology. This research was aided by weekly workshops with a regional polychaete expert. Near-daily microscope use has made me proficient in dissection, tissue extraction, complex identification and scientific illustration.
