A Few Tutor Qualifications

Ecology has been a fascinating subject for me for years. I have studied it, as it deals with the supply and demand of resources in the environment. I have studied ecosystems, energy flow through a food web, the balance of nature. the impact of pollution, and many other such subjects integral to ecology. I can explain concepts of ecology in a very practical and understandable way.I also have the ability help a student understand what a course is looking to teach, so that a student can maximize study time, to ace a course. I enjoy finding different student's methods of learning and helping students define and realize their dreams through successful education. Additionally, I can explain what the courses are looking for a student to learn, and how to study to ace the courses.

I play the flute every Sunday at Mass and am compensated for special events such as the Christmas Pageant and Midnight Mass. In addition, I am frequently hired to play at special events such as weddings.

I haven't played tennis on a professional team, but I am very much knowledgeable with the rules and how to play. I also have a close friend who has played tennis all his life and is a physical education teacher and who would be willing to help out as well; just as he's taught me more.

I earned my English degree while in undergraduate school and have studied literature for the majority of the program. I have taken courses focusing on different types of literature, ranging from American to British, to sub genres of Gothic, Romantic, Modernist, and a variety of others. I also am familiar with different theories that surround the subject, including but limited to race theory, queer theory, feminist theory, and Marxist theory. I also have helped my peers understand literature on a surface level as well.

They are United States history from colonization to present; world history from early civilization to present; Michigan history major events; geography locations, characteristics and how they are interrelated; different types of government in the world, their characteristics, how they are different, and legal processes that different countries use. I also have experience researching history papers and determining types of sources and using citations.
