I have been in the teaching profession for 14 1/2 years and taught both Mathematics and Science in all secondary grades. I have spent more time at the middle school level officially teaching, but I have tutored Math and Science from the elementary level through the collegiate level. I love to see a student finally understand a concept after struggling for some time.
I have also been a coach for cheer leading, soccer, and bowling and enjoyed sponsoring many groups - such as Step Team...
I have been in the teaching profession for 14 1/2 years and taught both Mathematics and Science in all secondary grades. I have spent more time at the middle school level officially teaching, but I have tutored Math and Science from the elementary level through the collegiate level. I love to see a student finally understand a concept after struggling for some time.
I have also been a coach for cheer leading, soccer, and bowling and enjoyed sponsoring many groups - such as Step Team and the EcoRoos (environmental group). I often have my service dog, Dinah, with me and she is a Great Dane/Greyhound mix. I love the one on one interaction that tutoring affords and I look forward to working with each and every student that is in need.
I am able to break down math concepts and teach from a different perspective, since my background is in Science. This tends to be easier for students. I find that once students understand why certain steps need to be done, they are more likely to understand the full concept.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology. I published my independent research in a journal as an undergraduate. I believe in a multi-tiered approach to education. Information needs to presented in different formats and students need to do science, rather than read about science to truly understand it.
If you are truly interested in math or science, or feel that you may need a more multi-faceted approach to education, please contact me so that I can create a game plan to help you be successful in your classes.
