I have a Master's Degree in Biological Anthropology from the Pennsylvania State University (ranked #1 in Anthropology in the country) and a Bachelor's of Science in Anthropology with a minor in Biological Sciences from Arizona State University (ranked #6 in Anthropology programs in the country).

I have a Master's Degree in Biological Anthropology from the Pennsylvania State University (ranked #1 in Anthropology in the country) and a Bachelor's of Science in Anthropology with a minor in Biological Sciences from Arizona State University (ranked #6 in Anthropology programs in the country). I'm currently working on a Master's degree in Genetic Counseling, and I am adjunct faculty at a community college teaching biological anthropology. I have tutored/taught for 10+ years, from the elementary school level through adult college student level. To supplement my scholastic training, I also have traveled to study abroad (Ireland), done research about monkeys (Nicaragua), and volunteered in a medical program (Peru), so I bring an interesting perspective to many subjects.

I have a knack for distilling complicated science topics down to be easily understandable. I'm passionate about watching you grow not only in your scholastic knowledge, but also in your confidence of your learning abilities. I enjoy teaching subject matter, but I also enjoy helping you get to the root cause of difficulties in a class/subject, such as working on study skills.

Additionally, I received the Cambridge University CELTA, which is the most internationally recognized certification in the world for teaching English as a foreign/second language, where I got classroom experience teaching students English in Ecuador.

I am also available for many other subjects, so please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working with you!

Spanish

I have been learning Spanish most of my life; I began Spanish classes in second grade. I took Spanish all throughout high school, and I took up through Intermediate-level Spanish (the 200-level) as an undergraduate in college. Additionally, I have gained proficiency in conversational Spanish throughout the past several years, due mostly to my travels to Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, Peru, Ecuador, and Spain. While in Peru, I lived with a Peruvian host family who did not speak English, and I volunteered at a local medical clinic and interacted with Spanish-speaking-only patients, so my Spanish skills were necessarily strengthened through deep cultural immersion.
